The Skin Saint’s Guide To Serums

If you think you know serums, think again. I LOVE medical‑grade serums. I consider them to be an important part of every skincare routine because they’re packed with high concentrations of powerful active ingredients to really get in and make a difference deep in your skin! That’s probably why I have ten (yes, TEN) serums in The Skin Saint line. They’re so versatile and many of mine are multi‑functional, meaning you get more bang for your buck and can cover several skincare ingredients in one serum.

Here’s my breakdown on all of my Skin Saint serums! You’ll learn what they do and which skin types they’re the best for. Don’t forget to watch the videos throughout the guide for extra tips on how to use these products and care for your skin!
