6 Serums That Are Perfect for Combination Skin
With some areas of dryness and others with excess oil, it can be tricky to find products that work for combination skin. Take serums for example. Sure, those dry patches on your complexion could do well with a few coats of hydrating serum, but applying the same formula onto a T-zone that’s battling excessive oil production may seem like a no-no. That doesn’t mean you should skip the step altogether, though. Remember, oily skin needs hydration in order to keep sebum production in check. Below we share our favorite beauty-boosting serums that your combination skin will love.
This vitamin C serum is tailored specifically for those with blemish-prone, combination skin. The formula contains silymarin (also known as milk thistle extract), vitamin C, ferulic acid and salicylic acid to help prevent breakouts, reduce oiliness and improve skin texture.
The amber glass ampoule that houses this serum preserves the efficacy of the formula, which targets fine lines and boosts radiance without leaving a greasy feeling behind.
Promote an even skin tone and deliver a boost of antioxidant goodness with this rose-scented serum. It’s formulated with a blend of rosewater, rosehip, vitamin C and hyaluronic acid.
