As we enter the summer season and temperatures rise, you may be looking to swap out your heavy duty winter skincare products for lightweight alternatives that feel gentle on the skin. Enter: the serum. Just because these products are lightweight does not make them any less effective. These 6 serums pack serious punches to provide you with your best skin yet. With hundreds of serum brands and skincare concerns to consider, I have rounded up 6 serums based on different ingredients and skincare concerns so you can find the serum that is best for you.
For Gorgeous, Glowing Skin: Skin Pharm Glow Factor Vitamin C Serum
The aptly-named “Glow Factor” serum from Skin Pharm uses Vitamin C (0% L-ascorbic acid, sodium lactate and a derivative of azelaic acid, to be precise) to brighten, even skin tone, promote collegen production, and protect the skin. The result? Glowing skin and an added side of anti-aging! Use just a drop or two on your face and neck each morning and follow with your favorite moisturizer.
For The Skincare Minimalist: Barefaced Overachiever Serum
Barefaced’s Overachiever Serum lives up to its name with a one-stop-shop of a product that does (basically) everything. Concerned about redness, fine lines, irritated skin, large pores, skin elasticity, or aging? The Overachiever is formulated to help with it all, with key ingredients like hyaluronic acid, green tea, and caffein. It is ideal for those who want to keep their skincare routines simple and minimal without compromising effectiveness.
For Anti-Aging: Babor Anti-Wrinkle Serum
For anyone who is searching for a product that can actually target and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, I recommend checking out Babor’s Anti-Wrinkle Serum. This serum uses a number of advanced ingredients to target wrinkles at the root, working to tighten the skin and reduce the formation of wrinkles. It is also silky feeling and luxurious on the skin, providing a truly lovely skincare experience.
For A Serum With Sun Protection: ITK Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen Serum
I will always love a skincare product that has SPF in it, especially in the summer. Not only dos this ITK serum feature SPF 50, but it also hydrates the skin and protects against UV rays and blue light. Plus, at just $15 for a 2 oz. bottle, this is incredibly affordable for anyone who is looking for a budget-friendly skincare option.
For The Active Woman: Fitish The Pre-Workout
Skincare that was made with fitness in mind? Yes, please! This hydrating serum uses niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, aloe, and mushroom to provide long lasting hydration that stays put even on the most active of days. Plus, I love the roll-on applicator.
For An Organic Skincare Solution: KORA Organics Plant Stem Cell Retinol Alternative Serum
KORA Organics uses incredible plant-based ingredients that I am constantly in awe of. For example, take this serum, which features a plant-based alternative to retinol that boasts stronger effectiveness than retinol to reduce the look of wrinkles and firm up the skin. It’s refreshing and incredibly effective, all while being vegan, cruelty free, and natural.
