10 Serums To Try For Every Skin Concern
Most of us don’t exactly understand the function of a serum. Understandably so, serums can be quite vague, but used correctly, they can give your entire skincare routine a major boost! Serums penetrate deeper into your skin, delivering the needed moisture and any other ingredients the serum is made for. That being said, you still require a moisturiser, as they create a protective layer on your face. You also still need SPF to block the harmful UV rays from the sun…come rain or shine! Here are 10 serums you can add to your routine, before you apply your choice of moisturiser, for every skin concern.
1. Forest Essentials
This Forest Essentials formula includes a bunch of Ayurvedic, natural antioxidants, cow’s ghee, turmeric, ashwagandha, and more beneficial ingredients. Together, they firm, moisturise, and get rid of wrinkles for your skin. It’s never too late to start the anti-ageing process to keep your skin soft, supple, and glowing.
This works best with a gel moisturiser, for those who have oily skin. It leaves your skin even and hydrated without any oily residue. Give your skin a hydration boost with this one.
3. The Body Shop
This works best for both oily and combination skin. It’s got a healthy dose of Vitamin C to brighten your skin. Plus, the formula soaks in pretty fast and goes with almost any moisturiser.

5. Yves Rocher
This one is purely made for ageing skin — whether its dullness, wrinkles, fine lines, or refined texture. I would recommend it to anyone above 25! It’s a concentrated formula that delivers quick results.
If you’ve got pigmentation or acne, this formula gently resurfaces, or exfoliates, your skin. It is to be used daily with a moisturiser and an SPF to protect your peeling skin.

This is another high potency concentrated serum. It’s got about 20% Vitamin C, which makes it great for hyper-pigmentation and dullness. Plus, it provides a quick collagen boost.
9. Eve Lom
For those with super-dry skin, Eve Lom’s serum is the holy grail! You can even use it as a makeup primer.
Dark circles will be gone with this specially made eye-contour serum. It can be used all over your eye, not just your under eye area. It will target pigmentation, fine lines, and dark circles around this area.
