By now, you’re probably an expert at identifying a quality face serum, but can you say the same for body serum? Relatively new to the beauty scene, they’re hitting the shelves in droves—and revolutionizing our skincare routines for the better.
Body serums are similar to face serums in that they’re packed with ultra-concentrated active ingredients (think: hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and ceramides). They target just about every skin concern you could think of, from dryness and dullness to bumps and rough patches.
While plenty of body serums work wonders on their own, some brands recommend layering them under body moisturizer to help lock the ingredients into your skin (just like you would a face serum). The key is to follow your product’s specific instructions to ensure you get the most out of the formula.
Sorting through hundreds of options can be overwhelming, so we curated an edit of the 15 best formulas that will make you wonder why they didn’t explode in popularity sooner. Check out our favorites ahead.
