I’m a huge fan of serums. Not only do they reflect the newest technological advances in skincare, they pack a heavyweight punch in the a lightweight way.  One of their key benefits is that they reach deep into the skin without feeling greasy or heavy. They also bolster the rest of your skincare routine, and are great to layer under moisturiser to help lock in active ingredients.  From hand and hair serums, to specialist treatments for all kinds of skin types and conditions, pick a serum that addresses your needs.  From left to right: Liz Earle Superskin Hand Serum, £17.50, is rich in GLA, omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants, a real treat for dehydrated or sun-damaged hands; Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Facial Serum, £16.66, contains a pure form of hyaluronic acid derived from non-animal sources; Aromatherapy Associates Rose Infinity Serum, £114, an indulgent blend of omega 6 ceramides, gardenia plant stem cells and isoflavones; Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep Infusion, £21, is brilliant for blow-drying hair to banish flyaways and frizz; This Works No Wrinkles Active Serum, £39, is packed with anti-aging vitamin C.
