Serums made a grand entry in the world of skincare a few years back and have succeeded in becoming and remaining one of the most effective skincare products. EVER.

Wanna know why? The reason is simple — they are lightweight, highly concentrated formulas that tackle skin woes such as wrinkles, fine lines, dryness, pigmentation, etc. and drastically improve the overall appearance of the skin.

However, to gain maximum benefits from a face serum, it’s ideal to pick one that’s specifically formulated to target your skin concerns. With the umpteen options available in the market, it can get difficult to pick the right one for your skin concern. But worry not, we’ve done the homework for you. Here’s a list of serums to pick depending on your skin concern.

 

Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is a common skin concern where some patches of the skin become darker due to overproduction of melanin or other factors.

Use a potent serum that contains antioxidants and skin brightening ingredients to tackle this problem. Infused with the goodness of zinc glycinate and algae the Dermalogica C-12 Pure Bright Serum absorbs quickly into the skin to treat hyperpigmentation at its source.

 

Wrinkles and fine lines

Wrinkles and fine lines

Sun damage is one of the major causes of premature ageing. Hence, if you want to keep your skin looking youthful for a longer period, start by minimising sun exposure and apply a good amount of SPF daily.

Introducing an anti-ageing serum in your nighttime skincare routine will boost collagen production and keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay. The Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Serum is an antioxidants rich formula that contains vitamins A, C and E to decrease the appearance of fine lines and improve skin elasticity.

 

Dry and dehydrated skin

Dry and dehydrated skin

Severely dry and dehydrated skin demands extra nourishment to tackle dryness and flaky skin.

An oil-based formula like the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Overnight Oil-in-Serum will deeply nourish the skin while you sleep at night. Be prepared to wake up to radiant-looking, smooth skin with this lightweight concentrate.

 

Dark spots

Dark spots

UV rays, acne scars and ageing can cause dark spots on the skin. these stubborn spots require a highly potent formula to tackle the problem at the deepest level.

The Lakme Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Serum is activated with Vita-Resorcinol and essential vitamins to banish dark spots and reveal radiant skin.

 

Dull, uneven skin tone

Dull, uneven skin tone

Clogged pores can make your skin look dull, uneven and lifeless. You need a face serum that contains mild exfoliating ingredients to remove dead skin cells and pore-clogging impurities. The pineapple fruit extracts in Lakme Absolute Ideal Tone Refinishing Night Concentrate gently exfoliate the top layer of the skin every night while also boosting the skin's natural defences against dullness causing external aggressors.
