The best face serums for all skin types

Written by Nida SayyedFeb 24, 2022

If you’re new to the world of skincare, let us introduce you to serums. These are thin liquids packed with active, potent ingredients. They reach deep and repair skin faster while also nourishing the skin. The internet is in love with serums, and we can’t seem to agree more. But just like every other product, one serum does not fit all. There are ingredients that work for certain skin types. If finding a serum is an exhausting task, rely on us and pick the serum for your skin type from our list below!

Dry skin

Dry skin lacks moisture as the sebum secretion is less than required. This skin type needs topical moisturisation, or the dryness makes your skin feel tight and uncomfortable. The tightness could lead to wrinkles or cuts and wounds in severe cases.

The best serum for dry skin is the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Face Serum With Moroccan Argan Oil. It’s enriched with argan oil which deeply penetrates the skin and delivers nutrients and moisture. The texture of this serum is super lightweight, and it adds a beautiful glow to the skin.


Oily skin

Opposite to dry skin, oily skin has excess sebum secretion. It ends up making the skin look greasy and dull.

People struggling with oily skin often also struggle with acne as the excess oil tends to clog pores and attract more dust to the skin. People struggling with oily skin should try the Simple Booster Serum - 10% Niacinamide For Even Skin Tone. Niacinamide works like clay that absorbs excessive oil. It also gently exfoliates the skin and helps newer, healthier cells reach the surface. This takes care of the oiliness and dullness, all in one!

Dehydrated skin

Dehydrated skin is commonly mistaken for dry skin. While dry skin lacks moisture, dehydrated skin lacks hydration. The water in the skin is either inadequate, or it is lost. To help your skin with water retention, you need humectants.

Hyaluronic acid is one of the best humectants out there. Hence, our pick for dehydrated skin is the Simple Booster Serum - 3% Hyaluronic Acid + B5 For Deep Hydration. It is formulated with 0.5% active hyaluronic, which effectively keeps skin hydrated and improves texture.

Acne-prone skin

Acne-prone skin need not be oily. It can be dry, dehydrated, combination or even normal. It’s kind of a gamble when picking products for acne-prone skin, as you can never be sure what will trigger pimples.

Hence, the Lakmé 9 to 5 Vitamin C+ Face Serum with 100% Real Kakadu Plum Extract For Nourished Skin is the go-to for acne-prone skin. Vitamin C gets absorbed quickly and hydrates skin while promoting healthy cell activity. It also fixes dullness and tired-looking skin caused by the havoc acne wrecks on the skin.


Sensitive skin

Just like dry and dehydrated skin are used interchangeably, sensitive and acne-prone skin is mixed. But sensitive skin does not just burst out in pimples. There can be rashes, irritation, itchiness and redness if sensitive skin comes in contact with the wrong stuff.

The Simple Booster Serum - 10% Hemp Seed Oil + B3 For Strong Skin Barrier is perfect for sensitive skin. It’s enriched with hemp seed oil and B3, which improve the skin’s barrier and immunity. It’s also full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, which relax and soothe skin. This one is an excellent pick for acne-prone skin as well.
