Best Body Serums

Summer means showing more skin. Especially with record-busting high temperatures blazing around the country. If you'll be showing it off more, you want to make sure it's looking its best. Which is where the best body serums come in pretty handy.

What is body serum?

It's pretty simple, really. A body serum does for your body what a face serum does for your face. Its primary job is to add plenty of moisture. Many options also exfoliate to reveal smoother skin. Several even tackle uneven skin tone, firm and banish visible wrinkles.

What ingredients should I look for?

You definitely want to select one with a strong hydration helper, like hyaluronic acid. If you want to get the most out of the experience, also keep an eye out for AHAs and BHAs to polish away all those pesky bumps. Summer means increased shaving. If shaving tends to irritate your skin, go with Paula's Choice 5% Niacinamide Body Serum to properly address the seasonal situation.

How expensive are the best body serums?

Prices can certainly vary. You can snag a great one for as little as $30. Or you can drop over a hundred. It really depends on what you want your body serum to do for you.
