Game-changing serums

6 Game-Changing Serums Your Skin Will Love

Is your complexion in need of a targeted boost? Your skin will thank you for using these high-performance serums.

Simply put, serums are concentrated, hard-working multitaskers. Applied on freshly cleansed skin beneath your moisturizer, they absorb quickly and target specific concerns such as fine lines, dehydration and even sun damage, while improving the skin’s resilience over time. If serums aren’t part of your skin care routine, it’s never too late to add them into your regular rotation. Read on to discover amazing high-performance serums targeted to a variety of skin goals.

The Goal: Create balance

Taking aim at no less than 10 visible signs of aging, Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Face Serum is Lancôme’s number one anti-aging serum, for good reason. This all-day hydrator contains a blend of seven probiotic and prebiotic extracts, which help to balance the natural bacteria that protects the skin. The result? Stronger, more resilient skin with radiance that's visibly boosted in just seven days.

The Goal: Calm stressed-out skin

If redness and inflammation are hot-button issues for your skin, Darphin Intral Daily Rescue Serum is a quick fix. It relies on a blend of ultra-soothing plant ingredients like chamomile, peony, and hawthorn to alleviate irritation and absorbs into the skin quickly for immediate relief. It also has a nifty self-loading dropper, which dispenses the perfect amount of product each time.

The Goal: Damage control

Stress, smoke and pollution — the top culprits for rapid skin aging — are no match for Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging Daily Serum 2.0. It repairs free radical damage caused by these common environmental offenders. Its star ingredient, idebenone, is a potent antioxidant that acts as a shield for the skin, defending against cell and tissue degradation that accumulates over time.

The Goal: Smoothing out lines

When addressing crepey skin, it can be wise to turn our attention below the chin as well. Loaded with ceramides and amino acids to target sagging and lock in moisture, No7 Restore & Renew Face & Neck Multi-Action Serum is a budget-friendly, all-in-one-solution for the face, neck and décolleté. What’s more, the non-greasy and non-irritating formula has a light, pleasant scent that will have you reaching for the bottle time and time again.

The Goal: Keep it simple

Made up of only six ingredients, Dr. Roebuck’s Ningaloo Firming Serum with Copper Peptides is a minimalist’s dream. Safe for sensitive skin, it has a fluid, fast-absorbing texture that’s great for layering with other serums or pairing with thicker moisturizers, sans any heavy feeling.

The Goal: Boost hydration

Dehydrated and dry skin types, this one’s for you. Thanks to the inclusion of Avène’s signature mineral-rich thermal water, Avène Hydrance Intense Serum Set offers ample hydration for supple and luminous skin. Bonus: It boasts major antioxidant protection, which helps improve the efficacy of your SPF. Apply in the morning for an extra layer of protection, and at night to wake up to a visibly refreshed complexion.
