It is a truth universally acknowledged by every New Yorker: with the onset of winter comes a myriad of beauty issues. Cooler temps and skyscraper-induced wind tunnels zap skin and hair of moisture, leaving skin dry and noticeably dull. Ever wonder how the beauty goddesses among us keep their summer glow and skin soft year-round? The answer: a damn good serum. With so many options available, it can be tough to find a serum that’s right for you, but fear not — we’re rounding up the tried-and-true serums we swear by. Read on for the holy grail of winter skin savers you need to stay fresh all season long.
Red skin is no fun. Anti-inflammatory rose combats this, as seen in Fresh’s award-winning Rose Deep Hydration Face Serum. The serum soothes and calms painful, itchy skin for 24-hour moisture.
Luxury natural skincare brand Root Science’s Restore Facial Serum is an author-favorite. This ultra-concentrated formula contains a mix of 19 botanical oils, allowing moisture-deprived skin to absorb antioxidants, rejuvenating vitamins, and plumping fatty-acids. Hello, plant-based glow!
GingerChi’s ultra-affordable Regenerating Face Serum is quick-absorbing and won’t leave your face or hands greasy. The formula packs in beautifying Omega-3 and six oils to soften skin and lock in moisture.
Practically a household name, Sunday Riley’s C.E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum goes to work fighting dullness and discoloration like a boss (babe). The high-powered blend gives you a vitamin C boost to brighten skin, even coloration, and counteract the lack of sunlight we all experience during the winter.
Glossier’s Supers put serums on the map as a must-have skincare product. Available in a trio or solo, these serums look just as beautiful on your skin or displayed on a shelf. For seasonal dryness, reach for Bounce, a hydrating and strengthening formulation that counteracts damage caused by your space heater.
Smooth and hydrate your skin like a French girl using La Mer’s Revitalizing Hydrating Serum. Infused with the brand’s signature Miracle Broth and green and red algae, this serum is the creme de la creme of skin softeners.
