Our favorite serums to help with hyperpigmentation and hydrate skin for an overall lighter, brighter summer complexion.

Don't be fooled, even in the summer months our skin needs hydration and an anti-aging boost. I'd skip my moisturizer before skipping my vitamin-packed serums! Here are some of the latest serums I've been test-driving. They're year-round but all light enough for summer. I'm really enjoying them all:
