As well as describing your morning espresso shot, the words ‘tiny but mighty’ are perfect for summing up serums. These small bottles pack a powerful skin-loving punch, as they set about nourishing your complexion and showing it some TLC. And who doesn’t need a bit of that, especially when your face is navigating weather changes, screen-calls, face coverings and everything in between.
Speaking of skin TLC, if you’re looking for an ingredient that deserves its beauty street cred, it’s hard to beat vitamin C. This essential component helps to fight damaging elements, which bombard our skin through environmental factors, including pollution. Plus, vitamin C works to firm, brighten and protect skin, tackling the signs of ageing in the process.
This impressive CV is why Ole Henriksen was one of the first skincare brands to showcase vitamin C in its products – including its serum range. The Scandinavian fave is known for using top ingredients that really work and, most importantly, swerving any harmful or unnecessary additions.
When it comes to choosing the right serum, it really comes down to your goals. New to all of this – and simply after some more pep in your skincare routine? Start with a good all-rounder. Or, if you’re ready to take things up a notch, we’ve got the ideal next-gen option for glowing skin. Ready to meet your serum superhero? Great! Let’s go…
