8 Herbal Face Serums for Glowy Skin Even in the Winter
Whether you’re a beauty buff or not, you’ve probably noticed that natural skincare is having a major moment. From mushroom beauty products to beauty products with broccoli seed oil, there’s no arguing that a lot of today’s beauty trends stem from nature. So it should come as no surprise that facial serums, which are must-haves for your winter skincare regimen, turn to herbs to boost their benefits for your skin. With a variety of different blends that help with ailments like dry skin and blemishes, there really is an herbal remedy for every skincare concern out there. Scroll on to check out eight of our fave herbal serums, all formulated with the intention of adding to your cold-weather skincare hack arsenal.
1. Josh Rosebrook Deep Hydrating Serum ($70): Hairstylist Josh Rosebrook might have started out as the master of hair care, but he has since become a household name for his natural beauty concoctions. This serum moisturizes your skin at a deeper level thanks to its unique blend of herbs like Slippery Elm, fennel seed, green tea and alfalfa. It also offers both anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, making it a great pick for sensitive and oily skin types.
2. Leahlani Skincare Champagne Serum ($32): With complexion-friendly and aromatherapeutic benefits, this dreamy serum is a product that makes the most of its Hawaiian roots. A soothing blend of lavender, chamomile and rose geranium oils will help put your mind at ease while leaving your skin looking especially radiant.
5. Laurel Organics Anti-Inflammatory Serum ($72): No matter what your typical skin condition might be, winter weather can certainly wreak havoc on even the healthiest of complexions. Irritation can be a common plight for dry and oily skin alike, which makes this anti-inflammatory serum a sure bet for just about anyone. With a whole plant blend of chamomile, neroli and myrrh, this luxe oil will keep skin feeling healthy and fab, no matter the weather.
7. Eminence Organics Herbal Spot Serum ($48): Blemish-prone skin types might have the urge to steer clear of oily beauty products, but they should know that serums can actually be quite beneficial in balancing the skin, so acne won’t be as much of an issue. This herbal serum is meant to stop acne in its tracks, with the key ingredient of salicylic acid-rich willow bark extract to gently exfoliate away skin impurities.
