Face Serums: 12 Editor-Approved Picks To Add To Your Skin Care Arsenal

Because as we all know, "winter is coming."

In case you haven't noticed, the days are getting shorter, the temperatures are getting cooler and your skin is most likely going crazy trying to adjust to the changing conditions.

Luckily, there's one simple product that will give your skin that extra boost it needs: face serums.

Used after cleansing and toning and before moisturizing, serums deliver a high-concentration of powerful ingredients directly into your skin, making them great for targeting specific concerns, such as wrinkles, dullness, acne and dehydration. This also explains the heftier price tag, at least in comparison to a regular moisturizer.

However, a little goes a long way with serums — since they are so potent, it's important to not overuse them, especially if you have sensitive skin, as it can cause irritation. Simply apply a small amount once or twice a day, depending on your skin type, and what's recommended on the bottle.
