15 of the best face serums for combination skin

Everyone has different skin types which require different and good products that need to be incorporated in the daily skincare regimen. And one of those steps of a daily skincare routine that you simply must not avoid is applying a face serum.

Many skincare professionals say that serums are the new moisturisers. Infused with the goodness of useful components such as hyaluronic acid, retinol and vitamin C, there are face serums available for every skin type, including the combination skin. It is a perfect addition to your skincare regime — for day or night — or your makeup kit as a primer.

Maintaining and taking care of combination skin is quite hard since it is a mixture of oily and dry skin, and that is why you need to pick your products very carefully.

A serum that is ideal for combination skin types will help maintain the proper pH balance, control sebum production, as well as hydrate it enough to prevent dryness. Here are a few of the best face serums for combination skin type that you must consider adding in your vanity kit.
