Everything you wanted to know about skin serums

by 20.7K views 20.7K views  
We’re in love with skin serums. These miracles-in-a-jar deliver active ingredients — free radical-fighting antioxidants, collagen peptides, DNA-restoring enzymes and potent repair boosters — into deeper layers of your skin. But we also love basking in the sun. Basking in the sun can, and does damage skin. Well, there’s no time like the present for some damage control. We’ve channelled our face serum obsession to bring you just the formula you need to tackle everything from acne and wrinkles to dryness and pigmentation.
DAY TIME PROTECTION
