Forget Lotion—Here’s Why You Need a Body SERUM

Updated 09/08/17

All your favorite skin-care brands are launching body serums, but it’s not just a trend for trend’s sake—it’s because body serums are the perfect moisturizer for the warm spring and summer months. Offering light to medium moisture and a smooth, non-greasy finish, they keep skin just hydrated enough while improving tone and texture with concentrated levels of active ingredients—unlike lotions and creams, whose active ingredients are often diluted by inexpensive humectants like glycerin and petrolatum.
