When we think of serums, we often think of hydrating and plumping products which moisturize the skin are catered for dry and dehydrated skin types, but in reality serums can work wonders on oily, break-out prone complexions. In order to improve the effect of the skin care products you apply excessively, a serum is an important part of any skin care routine.
To balance the skin, control sebum production or hydrate the skin without making it greasy, serums for oily skin can make mixtures or blemishes much more manageable and prepare the skin for make-up.
