Summer is quickly approaching us and with it comes dryer skin that needs that extra touch of attention. Serums are a fan favorite and a must have during those months that will put your skin to the test. Skin serums are not a moisturizer like a lotion or cream, rather they are highly concentrated formulations that are designed to sink into the skin quickly, delivering an intensive dose of ingredients that can address common skin complaints. “I definitely recommend serums for anyone who is concerned about aging”. It’s a really good way to get extra anti-aging effects, more than your typical moisturizer and sunscreen.
