Serums have become an indispensable part of our skincare routines. These mini bottles loaded with all-star ingredients can do wonders for our skin. But when it comes to reaping the benefits of serums, it’s essential to pick the right one depending on your skin concerns. So, to help you make the right choice, we’ve compiled a list of four active ingredients to look for when buying face serums. Read up.


01. Hyaluronic acid for dry skin

Hyaluronic acid for dry skin

One of the most common ingredients found in serums these days is hyaluronic acid and rightly so, as this active ingredient is amazing for dry skin. It binds water in skin cells and makes your skin smooth, hydrated and fresh. From hydrating your skin to making it smooth to even fighting signs of ageing, hyaluronic acid does it all and more. By introducing a good hyaluronic acid-enriched serum like the Lakmé Absolute Hydra Pro Serum in your skincare routine, you ensure that your skin remains hydrated, moisturised, smooth and supple.


02. Vitamin C for ageing skin

Vitamin C for ageing skin

Vitamin C is a powerhouse ingredient that boosts collagen production in the skin. It fights signs of ageing like wrinkles and fine lines and keeps your skin from sagging. If you’re looking for a one-stop solution for your ageing skin woes, include a quality Vitamin C face serum like the LAKMÉ 9 TO 5 VITAMIN C+ FACIAL SERUM enriched with the richest known source of Vitamin C – Kakadu Plum. It harnesses the power of this potent vitamin C and is designed to reduce skin dullness by fighting free radicals and promoting skin health. This lightweight serum works to give you youthful, nourished, smooth skin with improved texture.


03.Niacinamide for uneven skin tone

An active form of Vitamin B3, niacinamide works to fade hyperpigmentation, acne and most importantly, fight signs of ageing. We suggest you try the Simple Booster Serum - 10% Niacinamide For Even Skin Tone to reap the best benefits of this active ingredient. With no parabens, alcohol, harsh chemicals or perfume in its formula, this serum has 10% of niacinamide and 1% of Vitamin B5 that helps strengthen skin barriers, promote even skin tone, prevents premature skin ageing and minimise enlarged pores to give you smooth skin.


04. Hexylresorcinol for dull skin

Hexylresorcinol for dull skin

Trust hexylresorcinol to brighten your dull skin and improve its overall health and texture. Loaded with antioxidants, this active ingredient has astringent properties that help deal with the free radicals on your skin. You can try the Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Brightening Serum to make the most of this ingredient. This serum combines the goodness of hexylresorcinol with witch hazel, Vitamin B3 and microcrystals to even out your skin tone, strengthen the skin barriers and soothe your skin to leave it looking smooth and brighter.
