10 Serums That Will Seriously Change Your Skin

If you are anything like me, you are obsessed with skin care. It’s all about finding the products that work for you, and sticking to them. Of course, I could talk for days about all the products I love, but if I had to boil it down to one kind I could not live without, it'd be serums.
Serums mostly use active ingredients that can penetrate multiple layers of the epidermis unlike creams and lotions, which just sit on top of the skin. So, to see real change, Dr. Lisa Airan, MD says to look to serums, which provide "essential nutrients...for a more intense treatment." So, whether you're dealing with dry skin, oily skin, or acned skin, I've tried and highlighted the 10 serums that will give your skin the rejuvenation it needs, ahead.

This is Dr. Airan's favorite serum. "Crème de la Mer makes a whole line of serums...that target a specific skin issue, like brightening and anti-aging, or fine lines and wrinkles." The Brightening serum in particular targets uneven pigmentation and delivers powerful brightening and anti-aging benefits.
