The 7 Best Serums for All of Your Skin Problems

Walk into any beauty retailer and you’re bound to find rows and rows of serums, each providing a unique function that’s different from the next. We scoured through dozens of serums and rounded up of the best ones out there for acne, aging, brightening, and everything else in between.



For Redness

Loaded with vitamin K, which helps to constrict blood vessels and make the look of broken capillaries and redness less visible, LING Skincare Vitamin K soothes stressed-out skin with a unique blend of natural Asian herbs. $80,


For Lack of Firmness

With age, skin loses its firmness and starts to become slack. But, the regular use of a serum that tightens, like Jan Marini Skin Research C-ESTA Face Serum, can redefine the contours of the face. This one also protects against free radicals and environmental damage, too. $90,


For Weak Skin

Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate was developed to strengthen compromised skin, making it more resilient so fewer signs of aging are visible on the surface. $65,


For Enlarged Pores

Loaded with lactobionic acid, Neostrata Bionic Face Serum goes to work to minimize the size of your pores, improve the texture of your skin and make your overall complexion look more radiant. $76,


For Sun Protection

A true multitasker, Supergoop Tinted City Serum does more than your average sunscreen. This serum-based one, which is ultralight on the skin, moisturizes, evens out skin texture, blurs imperfections and prevents premature aging. $42,


For Oily Skin

FRESH Umbrian Clay Mattifying Serum gets shine and large pores under control. With a long-lasting mattifying effect, this must-have serum also provides 24 hours of antioxidant protection. $35,


For Dry Skin

Many serums don’t hydrate, but Revive Intense Moisture Serum Extreme is different. This moisturizing serum is loaded with soy proteins and amino acids that limit moisture loss and also lend a hydrating effect. $365,
