The key to a glowy, dewy complexion is well-moisturized skin. And while a serum may seem like an unnecessary step in an already full skincare routine, the fact is that a moisturizer alone won’t lock in the hydration dry skin needs. As a bonus, serums also can help to decrease fine lines and add radiance. From plant-based and algae infused serums to rose and tea lime enhanced formulas, here is a guide to the 10 best thirst-quenching serums to keep skin hydrated.
