The Best Serum for Your Skin Type

Fall is here, which mean it’s time to figure out the best serum by skin type! Read below to see how to transition your summer serum to an autumn one.

With the beginning of fall literally here, it’s time to switch up or introduce a serum into your routine. Cooler weather means snuggling under the covers and unfortunately, exposure to around the clock indoor heat. The combination of harsh winds and unbearable heaters means your skin is about to go through a lot. I’m talking dry skin, chapped lips, and all around irritation.

Serums are the perfect way to combat these environmental stressors. They’re packed with highly concentrated skin-benefitting ingredients that can help you no matter the skin type or the skin issue. Here, we’ve compiled our best recommendations of serums you need to try this fall.

Oily Skin: SkinRX Lab MadeCera Fresh Clearing Ampoule

For oilier skin types, you’ll want to choose a serum that provides moisture while keeping it lightweight. If you choose one that’s too rich, it’ll only cause your skin to produce more oil, so look for light but ingredient-packed ones like the SkinRX Lab MadeCera Fresh Clearing Ampoule.

This innovative ampoule, which collected a 2020 Allure Korea Best of Beauty award, spray is packed with tea tree and centella asiatica to curb sebum production and calm and breakouts. The addition of ceramides provides the skin a much needed moisture boost and helps to strengthen the skin barrier so fall and winter’s harsher temperatures don’t impact the skin!

Combination Skin: Isntree C-Niacin Toning Ampoule

Combination skin types: The game-changer for you this fall is going to be the Isntree C-Niacin Toning Ampoule. For your skin type, you’ll want to search for a serum that will hydrate and balance the skin. I know that might seem like a lot to ask for, but this serum is prepared. It’s enriched with vitamin C packed sea buckthorn and niacinamide which will insanely brighten your skin while helping to balance excess sebum.

Worried your dry parts might get drier? Stop that overthinking, because this special serum also features glycerin and ceramides which helps to intensely hydrate without any greasy residue.

Sensitive Skin: Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Serum

Those with sensitive skin have to be especially diligent with the changing seasons because the combination of harsh weather and loss of moisture means constantly red and inflamed skin. To avoid those symptoms, seek out serums that work to calm while providing intense hydration.

The Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Serum is specially formulated for those with sensitive skin. It contains a calming blend of organic plant extracts like celery, carrot root, and broccoli, which help to fortify and strengthen the skin. Centella asiatica, aloe, and sodium hyaluronate work in tandem to combat acne and reduce redness, allowing your skin to breathe a sigh of relief. 

Dry Skin: The Plant Base Waterfall Moist Balanced Hyaluronic Acid 100

Dry skin types: These next couple of months are about to be a rollercoaster ride of moisture-parched skin for you. To help soothe your skin worries, you’ve got to choose a serum that packs a serious punch of hydration.

The Plant Base Waterfall Moist Balanced Hyaluronic Acid 100 is formulated to do just that. It contains sodium hyaluronate, a hyaluronic acid relative and natural moisturizing factor. A humectant, this ingredient helps to bind water to the skin and can hold quite a bit water!

This serum will work double time to leave your skin plump and moisturized all season long.

Bottom line:

With new weather temperatures comes new skin care challenges, but you don’t have to stress out completely. Just take a step back and think about how your skin reacts to the weather and create a routine that combats those stressors. This helpful best serum by skin type guide will bring you one step closer to successfully transitioning your routine for the fall.
