What’s the big deal with serums?

Serums are all the buzz in the beauty world. But what are they, exactly? A serum is a skincare product that is applied to the skin before moisturizing and helps deliver powerful ingredients to the skin. Typically, serums have active ingredients that absorb into the skin to target specific concerns – such as acne, wrinkles, and discoloration. Below you’ll find some of our best sellers here at Anne Arundel Dermatology.
