ELLE (Australia) - - An Elle Guide -

There are two things to con­sider when in­vest­ing in beauty prod­ucts: time and prox­im­ity – as in, what gets the clos­est to naked skin and what hangs out there for the long­est. That’s why serums are the heavy-hit­ters of the skin­care world. While creams sit on top of the skin, cre­at­ing a bar­rier and lock­ing in hy­dra­tion, the mi­cro mol­e­cules found in serums are small enough to pen­e­trate deeper and de­liver po­tent doses of ac­tive in­gre­di­ents into the epi­der­mis where they can make a real dif­fer­ence. Look for in­gre­di­ents like all-rounder an­tiox­i­dants, plump­ing hyaluronic acid, re­fin­ing AHAS and BHAS, bright­en­ing vi­ta­min C and wrin­klesmooth­ing retinol.
