Slick solutions: The Best Face Serums for Problem Skin

Whether you want to eradicate wrinkles, reduce redness or do away with dryness, there's a skincare serum out there to suit you. Brimming with active ingredients, these super-concentrated formulas are designed to penetrate deeper into the skin than moisturizers and target specific skin problems. Many are also packed with not-so-nice ingredients, though, such as artificial preservatives, emulsifiers and fragrances. So we've tracked down five face serums made with only natural ingredients that have been carefully selected to help not harm your skin.

For uneven skin tone

Kimberly Sayer

Whitening and Brightening Serum, £26.40 (30 mL); tel: 0800 731 1256

If brown spots and dullness are among your skincare concerns, try this blend of naturally derived brighteners and lighteners, including seaweed and bearberry leaf extracts, made by British aesthetician Kimberly Sayer. It's said to reduce pigment formation in the skin and lighten existing dark patches as well as improve redness.

For sensitive skin


Sea Aster & Wild Oat Instant Calm Redness Serum, £42 (30 mL); tel: 0203 397 1727

Suitable for even the most hypersensitive of skins and people with rosacea, this aptly named serum contains redness-reducing sea aster, anti-inflammatory wild oats and ultra-hydrating hyaluronic acid. Formulated without ethyl alcohol or irritating preservatives, it's super-concentrated, yet lightweight and easily absorbed.

For oily skin


Organic Complexion Boosting Face Serum, £19.99 (30 mL); tel: 01889 507 575

Oily skin types may shy away from oil-based products, but this one—a blend of natural plant and essential oils, including safflower, jojoba, rosehip seed, lemongrass and juniper berry oils—is designed to regulate sebum production and clear breakouts without leaving the skin looking greasy. It's chalked up some impressive feedback on Amazon from acne and problem-skin sufferers.

For dry skin

Black Chicken Remedies

Love Your Face Serum, £66 (30 mL); tel: 0800 108 8822

This combination of 11 therapeutic oils—including apricot kernel, argan, rosehip and evening primrose oils—is 98 per cent organic and 100 per cent vegan. Although rich, it's quickly absorbed into the skin to leave it looking and feeling plump and hydrated.

For ageing skin

Green People

Age Defy+ Hydrate & Renew Serum, £36 (30 mL); tel: 01403 740 350

This lightweight and refreshing serum is crammed full of anti-ageing ingredients, including antioxidant-rich green tea extract and baicalin, a flavonoid that can protect against UV-induced skin damage, the number-one cause of premature skin-ageing.1 It delivers an intense dose of hydration to plump up the skin, and leaves your face and neck feeling silky smooth.
