One important skincare step that people might miss out is serum. These contain concentrated and potent active ingredients to target your skin concerns. The best thing yet? You can easily stack and layer as you please.
From hydrating serums, brightening serums, to anti-ageing and blemish-targeted serums, there’s a whole spectrum to choose from.
When it comes to layering your serums, be sure to always layer from light to thick in terms of consistency. And if you really want to lock in their benefits, finish up with a moisturiser or face oil to seal it in and keep your skin glowing and moisturised.
It seems that with maskne, everyone’s skin concerns now are blemishes and to keep our bases as glowing as possible. We rounded up nine hydrating and brightening serums that can help you get the glowing skin of your dreams.
