7 Multitasking Facial Serums to Help Transform Your Skin
There’s a facial serum out there to target nearly every skin concern you can think of. Wrinkles? Check out these anti-aging serums. Dry skin? Hydrating serums formulated with hyaluronic acid are calling your name. Dull complexion? Get your glow back with a radiance-boosting vitamin C serum.
While having plenty of options to choose from is arguably better than the alternative, it can make for a difficult selection process. To help you narrow down your search, we’ve rounded up our favorite face serums that target multiple concerns. (Note: Products from our parent company L’Oréal are marked with an * below.)
Formulated with high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid (which provides short- and long-term hydration), plus the antioxidant-rich iris root extract, this anti-aging serum helps address lines, wrinkles and elasticity while also supporting natural collagen production.
Help protect your skin against external aggressors such as pollution and sun damage with this skin-booster. Formulated with Vichy’s proprietary Mineralizing Thermal Water — sourced from the depths of French volcanoes and rich in 15 essential minerals — and hyaluronic acid, this serum can help fortify skin and boost hydration.
As far as anti-aging serums go, Lancôme’s Advanced Génifique is a true labor of love — it was inspired by more than 15 years of research. The formula boasts ingredients that act on ten key signs of aging: skin texture, resiliency, elasticity, firmness, sagginess, fine lines, wrinkles, radiance, clarity and skin tone.
For a gentle, yet effective daily retinol treatment, look no further than this serum from CeraVe. Hyaluronic acid, niacinamide and ceramides hydrate and calm, while retinol works to resurface your skin.
If you’re just starting to get into serums, this formula from Kiehl’s is the perfect entry into the category. It contains hyaluronic acid and an adaptogenic complex to strengthen skin, hydrate, boost radiance and prevent signs of skin aging from forming.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and skin brightener, which is why a vitamin C serum is a must-have in any anti-aging routine. This one contains 20% of the ingredient to target and prevent wrinkles, sagging skin, dark spots and dullness.
La Roche-Posay’s Hyalu B5 Serum clocks in at less than $30 and is formulated with some of our favorite ingredients, including hyaluronic acid and madecassoside, an extract of soothing centella asiatica. The serum plumps and targets fine lines to revitalize tired-looking skin.
