When it comes to face serums, there are different products to suit different skin types. So it’s important to do your research when searching for the latest addition to your skincare routine.

Read on to find out how to pick the best face serum for your skin type – and some quick and easy ways to get a youthful, vibrant complexion.

How to select the serum for your skin type

The type of serum that will work best for you will depend on your skin’s current needs. Take a look at the ingredients and match them with your particular skin type. Do you have:

  1. Oily skin? Say goodbye to oily skin by choosing a serum with salicylic acid, glycolic acid, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, lactic acid or niacinamide. 
  2. Dry skin? Look for formulas that incorporate hydrating proteins. Hyaluronic acid, for example, attracts water to your skin. Other hydrating ingredients include vitamin C and glycerin. 
  3. Combination skin? Your skin will really benefit from the power of vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, vitamin B3, vitamin E, retinol (for anti-ageing) and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs). 

Quick questions to find out your skin’s needs

Still not sure what your specific skin needs are? Don’t worry – a few simple questions will get you on the path to a better skincare routine:

  • Does your skin feel tight? Dry skin.
  • Does your skin feel a little greasy to the touch or look a bit shiny? Oily skin
  • Does your skin have scaly or dry patches that are easily irritated? Dry skin.
  • Do you often feel a greasy, oiliness around your nose and forehead? Oily skin.
  • Do you experience several of the above skin textures? Combination skin.
  • Does your skin sometimes get irritated, blotchy or itchy? Sensitive skin.
  • Do you often have blemishes, pimples or redness? Pimple-prone skin.

Best products for each skin type

So, you know what your skin type is and now it’s time to choose the right face serum for your needs. Good news for you – BOOST LAB has the perfect solution for every skin type, whether yours is oily, dry or combination.

Oily skin can be caused by a number of factors, including changes in your diet, increased stress, hormones or environmental factors. Our Blemish Rescue Serum is the best serum to fight oiliness in your skin. We developed this intensive Vitamin B3 concentrate to supercharge your daily routine and give you that extra boost. Incorporate it into your daily skincare routine to enjoy reduced blemishes, pimple-prone skin, redness and oily skin.

Tackle dry skin head-on with our 2D-Hyaluronic Hydro Boost Serum. When your skin lacks moisture it can cause sensitivity and speed up signs of ageing, which is why this scientifically designed serum maintains hydration and keeps your skin looking – and feeling – healthy all day long.

For combination skin, almost all of our BOOST LAB products will deliver benefits for your skin’s needs. From fewer fine lines and wrinkles with our Anti-Ageing Serum, to evening out your skin tone and clearing dark spots with our Vitamin C Brightening Serum, there’s so much to love about BOOST LAB face serums.
