Just like winter, summer can have all kinds of negative effects on your skin. Sun damage and all the things that come with that like dark spots, dehydration, even hyper-pigmentation are no easy fix. Over the past few years, serums and oils have become the ultimate product to use on your skin. There are so many different concentrates and organic mixes to choose from, it’s hard to know where to start. So we decided to make it easy for you and put together a list of our favourite serums we’re using right now.
Dermalogica Biolumin-C Serum
This serum is one of Dermalogica’s newest products and we can’t rave about it enough. We got our first bottle a month ago and it’s already gone! This high performance Vitamin C SERUM helps to brighten and firm the skin. A mix of ultra-stable Vitamin C and palmitoyal tripeptide-5 aids in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin calm, hydrated and radiant. If you want that fresh faces glow this product is a must.
The Ordinary – 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil
We have nothing but love for The Ordinary and all of their oils, but the Rose Hip Seed Oil has really stolen our hearts. It’s 100% pure and rich in linoleic acid and pre-vitamin A making it perfect for acne-prone skin, psoriasis and most other types of skin conditions. It soothes and hydrates plus helps deter the signs of aging. You can purchase the Rose Hip Seed Oil at Deciem.
Clarins Hydra Essential Bi – Phase Serum
Sometimes serums can feel thick and sit on the face for hours, before actually absorbing into your skin. Not this one! The Hydra Essential serum is so light, yet has such an intense level of hydration it leaves the skin rejuvenated and fresh. The organic leaf of life extraction boasts the skin’s hyaluronic acid, which helps to prevent breakouts and discolourations. Find this product at Shoppers, Sephora or Hudson’s Bay.
Ole Henrikson – Truth Serum
You can’t go wrong with Ole. Especially when it comes to the truth serum. This particular serum can be used on all skin types. Made from a mix of Vitamin C and collagen, it’s powerful anti-aging component, brightens skin and leaves it hydrated all day. It’s almost like with each application of the serum you’re taking a multi-vitamin for your skin. The Truth Serum is enriched with orange and green tea extract creating a beautiful feel of the product and a much more beautiful application. You should purchase this and all other Ole Henrickson products at your local Sephora store.
La Mer – The Regenerating Serum
This Serum is just like a little bit of heaven for your skin. Created for all skin types this serum is sure to refine and rejuvenate the skin’s surface. It aids in fighting fine lines and wrinkles as well as uneven texture. This serum is formulated with Maine Plant Stem Cells which promotes the skin’s natural renewal process of collagen and elastin. This is a very precious product which a very precious price but so so worth it. So if you’re looking to splurge, check it out at your local Sephora or Holy Renfrew.
Drunk Elephant D – Bronze Anti Pollution Sunshine Serum
Like most serums this one is good for all skin types. It helps to keep the skin balanced and helps to replenish moisture. The bronzy glow it gives your skin is amazing and really helps to lighten a complexion, making it look fresh and healthy. We love this serum because it boosts the protection system to fight against outdoor pollution and environment stressors, plus they only use clean ingredients. Find Drunk Elephant online.
