THE BEST GLYCOLIC ACID SERUM
Vetted by derms and praised by editors, L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 10% Pure Glycolic Acid Serum ($30) is a resurfacing powerhouse, but mild enough to use every day thanks to the addition of soothing aloe.
THE BEST VITAMIN C SERUM
Meet the holy grail of antioxidants, SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic ($166): the perfect marriage of vitamins C and E and ferulic acid, which defend against damaging free radicals as they smooth fine lines and fade discoloration.
THE BEST HYALURONIC ACID SERUM
Lancer Skincare Soothe & Hydrate Serum ($75) does exactly what its name suggests: Hyaluronic acid plumps and smooths while honey peptides alleviate redness for a calmer, younger-looking complexion.
THE BEST GROWTH FACTOR SERUM
SkinMedica’s celebrated TNS got an upgrade: TNS Advanced+ ($295) has a new scent and new growth factor technology, and testers in a brand study reported looking six years younger after using it twice a day for 12 weeks.
THE BEST PEPTIDE SERUM
Help skin “snap back” with StriVectin Peptight Tightening & Brightening Face Serum ($99), which utilizes two types of peptides to minimize sagging and even skin tone, plus Australian kakadu plum for a brightening boost.
THE BEST RETINOL SERUM
Made for those who want serious results from a retinoid without the hassle of a prescription, Sunday Riley A+ High-Dose Retinoid Serum ($85) offers a 6.5-percent dose of wrinkle-fighting retinoids mixed with calming botanicals for fewer side effects.
