The Best Serums for Clear Skin. Serums can seem like a superfluous, if not, costly step in your skincare routine. These shots of concentrated nutrients might add an extra oomph to your complexion but are they really worth it?
The short answer? Yes.
While creams sit on top of your skin to form a protective barrier of hydration, serums are made from active ingredients that contains molecules small enough to penetrate the outer layer of your skin and deliver intense doses of collagen builders, anti-oxidants and other anti-aging properties.
And because many serums are water based, they can also deliver water soluble ingredients such as Vitamin C beyond the skin’s surface for better absorption and provide a brightening effect.
