#OrganicBeauty: 4 Serums to add to your beauty shelf now

Serums are typically packaged in smaller bottles compared to other skincare essentials, but they are made up of smaller molecules that can penetrate deeply into the skin and hold a chockfull of concentrated ingredients, making them ideal for targeting specific skin concerns—which brings us to the following list.


Here we have rounded up four serums you can add to your beauty shelf—all from brands that believe in non-synthetic, natural ingredients—depending on your skin type and concern. 


For combination or oily skin

Perfect for use given the hot and humid weather we have here, the Neal’s Yard Remedies Oil Free Hydrating Facial Serum hydrates and mattifies skin upon application. The lightweight serum is formulated with rice extract, alpaflor alp-sebum, shiitake extract and other potent ingredients that leave skin, moisturised, smooth and shine-free—it smells absolutely lovely too.


For normal skin and anti-ageing

Melvita’s Nectar Supreme Serum and Oil combines the efficacy of a serum with the nourishing power of facial oils, forming a two-in-one concoction that will fit right in your anti-ageing skincare routine—a routine one is never too young to start. It harnesses the revitalising and repairing properties of precious nectars and plant oils to help shield against signs of ageing, giving you soft, radiant and youthful skin. 


For stressed, dull and uneven skin

Going through quarter-life crisis? Then the Origins Skin Renewal Serum might just be your skin saviour. Formulated to address millennial skin concerns—also known as rough, dull skin and visible pores that appear (no) thanks to late nights—this serum helps refine skin texture, shrink pores and restore radiance with its innovative blend of high-performance ingredients.


For dry and/or normal skin

Things we love about the Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum: it’s oil-free, fast-absorbing and hydrating—plus the lightweight texture also makes it great for summer weather. With regular use, you’ll find that your skin’s moisture balance is restored, leaving it supple and comfortably soft.
