A Serum for Every Issue
There's A Serum for That!
If you think serums are a waste of time, it’s time to change the way you think about skin care. Whatever your objective—to minimize the look of wrinkles, to even your skin’s tone, to improve a less-than-perfect texture, to blast blemishes or all of the above—you’ll get there faster with regular use of a targeted treatment.
Objective: Rejuvenate hormonally aging skin
Solution: Murad Age Diffusing Serum
Talk about a quick fix: this one is said to increase skin firmness by a whopping 42% in 10 minutes. It will also reduce the appearance of medium-deep wrinkles and help to improve elasticity while infusing your skin with moisture.
Solution: SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum
It's pricey, yes. But it's one of the best-rated products we carry, and for good reason: it works. Human Fibroblast Conditioned Media—a growth factor whose initial role in skin care was healing burned skin—teams up with a slew of antioxidants, peptides and emollients to make one of the most comprehensive treatments out there. With regular use, you can expect a vast improvement in texture plus fewer lines, wrinkles and spots.
Objective: Relieve ultra-dry skin
Struggling with a parched complexion, but shudder at the thought of another heavy cream weighing you down? This serum may just be your new favorite thing. Super-lightweight yet incredibly potent, it melts into the skin to deliver serious moisture without a trace of greasiness. It's the perfect accompaniment to your favorite moisturizer.
Objective: Gain the upper hand in the battle against acne
Solution: Eminence Herbal Spot Serum
Packed with vitamin A (retinol), Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Coenzyme-Q10, this serum protects skin against free radical damage and environmental stressors as it eliminates acne-causing bacteria. Best of all, it's gentle enough for use on sensitive skin.
