I suffer with chronic dry skin which only gets worse during Autumn and Winter time so serums have become a vital part of my daily skincare routine. This year my skin hasn't just got to battle with the cold weather, it's also got to battle with the drying environment of a face mask so for the past couple of months I've been testing out a bunch of new serums to find the best ones that work for me and all my skincare woes and I thought it was about time to share it with you all.

Experiencing dry skin is a really common skincare compliant that most people deal with at some point in their life, on any part of their body not just their face. It occurs when there isn't enough water in the top layer of your skin which can lead to dryer patches of skin. If you didn't already know serum's are designed to deliver higher concentrations of nutrients and specific active ingredients to your skin and it often comes in gel-based or liquid formula. Serums are able to hydrate your skin more effectively because the molecules are smaller so they are able to penetrate and hydrate your skin at the deepest level. Pretty much any serum I've used can either been used on it's own before your moisturiser or can actually be mixed in with your moisturiser of choice.

ARK Skin Perfector Anti-Redness Serum
My skin has been suffering badly with little areas of redness from breakouts and irritation lately thanks to face masks (you guys are going to be sick of me hating on face masks by the end of the year but they are so vital so make sure you wear them!) so I've particularly been using the ARK Skin Perfector Anti-Redness Serum (£45) when I'm in work because it not only helps tackle the redness and irritation as well as having a cooling effect on my skin, it also helps to boost moisture levels and reinforce the skin's natural barrier. I've also been taking it to work with me and popping it on a couple of times throughout my long shift as a skin refresher and added hit of moisture.

Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster
I've been using this one since last Winter when my skin was freaking out and completely drying out and it's been a life saver for me! The Skin Hydrating Booster (£59) has been fab because I've been able to use either on it's own as serum or mixed into my moisturiser to give it an extra boost of hydration when the weather gets really cold. It's filled with hyaluronic acid, glycolipids and Algae extract to help restore the moisture balances and minimize any fine lines caused by dehydration. A little of this goes a very long way and when I use it alone as a serum, it melts straight into my skin and helps keep it hydrated all day long.

Dermalogica Retinol Clearing Oil
I spoke about this on my blog back in the beginning of August but since I've been suffering with maskne I've been using the Dermalogica Retinol Clearing Oil (£69) on a nightly basis to help me deal with breakouts and scars without drying out my already dry skin. It contains retinol and salicylic acid to help tackle breakouts and premature ageing. It does have a small window where you need to let your skin adjust to it and you can get some minor irritation so you may have to slowly introduce your skin to it but it is so worth any teething problems you might encounter in the first week or two as it's really helped me combat breakouts and scars left behind after the breakout disappears.

L'Aves Bright & Light Skin Elixir
I wrote about the L'Aves Skin Elixir at the end of last month but I've fallen in love with using it especially during my morning skincare routine. Not only does it feels so luxurious to use, it also smells amazing, it's honestly one of my all time favourites to use because of how good it smells. I've noticed that using the Bright & Light Skin Elixir (£65) in the morning, it's really made my skin feel softer and have a nice glow to it. It's filled with Spilanthes Acmella flower extract as well as a bunch of omega's and vitamin's to restore, firm and smooth your skin. 

What's your favourite serum this Autumn?
