While anti-aging serums are typically meant for more mature skin, it is not so bad to start using them as early as in your 20s. You know what they say, prevention is better than cure! Anti-aging serums are workhorses that will not just fight early signs of aging, but also provide you with active ingredients for refining skin texture, brightening your complexion, and targeting your other skin issues. Plus, a serum's thin texture helps it penetrates the skin deeper, giving you more benefits compared to your moisturizer and your toner. That said, we rounded up some of the best age-defying formulations you should try now:
