Your Guide to Dermalogica Serums

What is a Serum? How will a serum help my skin? And which serum should I use for my skin type or concern?

These are questions I get asked every day - and there are quite simple answers for every single one of them. Let's find the perfect Dermalogica serum for you!

What exactly is a Serum?

Serums are skincare products that are designed to deliver high concentrations of specific active ingredients to the skin and are able to be absorbed by the skin deeper than a moisturiser or cream due to their light consistency. We use Serums to target particular skin concerns - such as ageing, acne, pigmentation etc.

Dermalogica Serums - Retinol Clearing Oil

When do I apply a serum and how many times per week?

Apply your serum to the skin after cleansing and before moisturising. The frequency in which you'll use your serum will vary depending on the skin concern you are treating and the serum you are using.



What is the best Dermalogica Serum for my skin?

Dermalogica has an extensive range of Serums to target every skin concern, from dryness/dehydration to sensitivity, hyperpigmentation, acne and skin ageing.

My top Dermalogica picks for these five skin concerns are:


For Dryness/Dehydration
Skin Hydrating Booster

This is such a versatile product. This hydrating fluid concentrate relieves dryness and the appearance of fine lines. Use prior to, or mix with, your moisturiser to help lift moisture levels. May also be applied directly to dry areas. Hyaluronic Acid, Panthenol, Glycolipids and Algae Extract help restore moisture balance and minimise the appearance of fine dehydration lines.

For Sensitivity
Ultracalming Serum Concentrate

This serum is the solution for skin sensitivity. It is a super-concentrated serum to calm, restore and defend sensitised skin.

Dermalogica's exclusive UltraCalming Complex contains Oat and botanicals to ease sensitisation, and peptides plus Oil of Evening Primrose, Sunflower Seed and Avocado extracts help defend against future assaults.

For Hyperpigmentation
PowerBright Dark Spot Serum

This NEW Dermalogica Serum uses light-diffusing technology to balance the appearance of uneven pigmentation after one use, and continues working over time with potent Niacinamide and Hexylresorcinol to help fade dark spots. Skin care powerhouse Shiitake Mushroom – rich in beta glucans – brightens skin, while adaptogenic Ashwagandha smoothes and delivers antioxidant benefits. Black Currant Oil and Peony Flower help boost skin’s natural luminosity. Skin-shielding actives help protect against pollution-induced dark spots.

For Adult Acne + Ageing
Retinol Clearing Oil

A high-performance night oil combining Retinol and Salicylic Acid into one skin-soothing formula that helps reduce visible signs of premature skin ageing and clear breakouts. Renews and soothes skin overnight to deliver clearer, younger skin by morning.

Time-Released Retinol (Vitamin A) reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. Salicylic Acid stimulates natural exfoliation and reduces breakouts. Argan, Rosehip Seed, and Golden Jojoba Oils soothes, nourishes and protects skin.

For Ageing
Phyto-Nature Firming Serum

In the firming phase, Sapphire-bound biomimetic peptides help firm skin and reinforce skin defences to counter visible signs of skin ageing accelerated by your exposomes (environment and lifestyle). In the lifting phase, Phyto-Nature technology uses potent, plant-derived bio-extracts to visibly tighten skin.

Amazonian Camu Camu helps prolong radiance while next-generation Hyaluronic Acid delivers a filler effect. Antioxidant Moroccan Rockrose Extract and Madagascar Green Coffee Bean visibly revitalise skin and help decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
