Even if you’ve diligently followed all the slip, slop, slap rules since November, the signs of summer might still be scattered across your skin. Whether it’s patches of pigmentation from that long lunch, fine lines from ample many late nights, sweat-induced clogged pores or rough texture from too much time in the sun – it’s time to update your skincare arsenal and bring in the big guns. We are of course referring to serums. Targeted and potent, serums are finer in texture and loaded with active ingredients to zone in on a particular skin concern.

Thankfully for you (and your skin) there is a fresh line-up of luxury serums that can accelerate your journey to better, brighter skin. Taking a two-pronged approach are both Perricone MD’s new duo, which features brightening and tightening complexes that work in tandem, and Clinique’s new dark spot corrector, which is spiked with the brand’s anti-dark mark champion, CL-302 complex. For dehydrated skin, Chanel have plucked the best anti-aging ingredients from around the world to create their lightweight, but powerful Blue Serum, while La Mer’s new revitalizing serum is like a big drink for thirsty, crêpey skin. If you’re prone to clogging, but are feeling parched, try Aesop’s Lucent Facial Concentrate, a vitamin booster without the heaviness. These, and some of our other favourite new serums to get your skin through the rest of summer.
