We’re all well-versed on the basic commandments of skincare; to always moisturise, not sleep with our makeup on, and, most importantly, apply SPF every single day. But another imperative to add to the line-up is serum, and it’s about time you got familiar with what a good one can offer. With deeper penetration than a moisturiser, consistent use will reap the benefits faster. Peruse our list of favourites below — your face will soon thank you for it.

1. The White Caviar Illuminating Serum from La Prairie is as luxurious as it sounds. Infused with golden caviar extract, this serum has powerful active ingredients which reduce the appearance of age spots and bring dull skin to life. A glowing and even complexion are guaranteed.
2. The Dr. Dennis Gross Clinical Hydration Booster lives up to its name with a concentrated formula of hyaluronic acid, watermelon extract and the Centella plant for a deep burst of hydration. This serum has a watery consistency, but don’t let that fool you — the wonder hydration booster gives almost immediate results.
3. The Sothys Anti-Wrinkle Lifting Serum is classified as a grade 2 which means it targets deeper wrinkles and permanent expression lines that appear as you age. Promising to smooth, firm and protect your skin, this is perfect for women in their late thirties.
4. Lauded as the ‘liquid gold of Morocco’ the Josie Maran 100% Argan Oil nourishes, hydrates and balances the skin.
