Skincare school: Here's how to find the ideal serum match for your skin concerns

Written by Nishtha BhallaOct 26, 2021

We're going to be honest here: When it comes to skincare, we have a special place in our hearts for serums. When used regularly, serums can transform our skin like no other, while being easy to use, and having next to no side effects. The trouble with serums though is that if you don't pick them based on your skin problem, they may often not give you the desired results.

So, to help you incorporate the right serums into your skincare routine, we're playing cupid and matching you with the ideal serum for your skin concern. Whether you have dry skin or oily skin, acne-prone skin or dull skin, we've got serum for every skin woe out there. Check ‘em out…

 

If you have dry skin…

Opt for the Lakmé Absolute Hydra Pro Serum. A lightweight, fast-absorbing serum that's infused with HA-Penta Complex, a fantastic ingredient for skin hydration along with glycerin, which is moisturising through and through. This one's a must-have serum for dry skin types. Oh, and did we mention it's infused with hyaluronic acid too, which is extremely well known for moisturisation, along with pentavitin that strengthens the skin barrier? This one's a total win!

If you have oily and acne-prone skin...

Don't you fret, because we have a serum for you! Tackling both oiliness and acne, the Dermalogica Age Bright Clearing Serum is the perfect match for anyone whose skin greases up at the speed of light and is prone to acne. With salicylic acid infused into the serum, you're guaranteed clear, oil-free skin along with some much-needed exfoliation. Bonus? It also hydrates and brightens the skin thanks to the niacinamide and white shiitake mushroom in it, and it has anti-ageing properties too!

If you have dull skin...

Having dull skin, especially during the festive season is a total no-no, and that's why a Vitamin C serum like the Pond's Bright Beauty Vitamin C Face Serum can help. Infused with lemon, green papaya and pomegranate extracts, this superhero serum is all about inducing that glow, making the skin feel smooth and nourished without being greasy.

If you have ageing skin...

Opt for the Lakmé Absolute Youth Infinity Skin Sculpting Serum to build an effective anti-ageing regimen. Infused with vitamin A, which is well known for its anti-ageing properties, strengthening niacinamide, and collagen boosters that help firm the skin, this one will practically turn the clock around — and make you look good while doing it!
