Best Hydrating Serums

When the weather drastically changes from scorching hot to frigid temperatures, it’s natural for you to see changes in your skin, as well. When it’s warm outside, your skin tends to produce more oil, leaving it feeling, which can make it feel oily. During the colder months, on the other hand, your skin may feel dry, dehydrated, and uncomfortable. Luckily for us all, making strides towards getting our skin balanced in the fall and winter is as easy as incorporating a hydrating serum into your skincare routine.

Contrary to belief, having dehydrated skin is not necessarily the same thing as having dry skin. Similar to dehydration in the body, dehydrated skin is a signal that your skin is lacking the water it desperately needs. In case you were wondering, people with oily skin aren’t exempt from having dehydrated skin. Your skin needs a balance between oil and water to thrive—if someone has oily skin that’s lacking water, they’re also suffering from dehydration. This means that we all could use some hydration in our lives, starting with this list of 8 hydrating serums that we’ve created for you.
