If there’s one thing you shouldn’t underestimate, it’s the role of serums in your life. If you’re wondering how to glow up and say goodbye to dull skin, add a brightening serum to your skincare routine. Serums contain concentrated amounts of active ingredients in a thin formula that can easily penetrate the skin. They dramatically amp up your skin care because their high concentration usually also means quicker results.

You can choose from different types that address various skin concerns, such as fine lines, acne, anti-aging, uneven skin tone, and dark spots. The best part? Serums can be found in products for different parts of the body, so you can enjoy an all-over glow. Here are five brightening serums to make you radiant from your hair to your toes.

Get Smooth, Shiny Hair with Dove 1-Minute Serum Shampoo and Conditioner 

The biggest hindrance to your hair glow-up is frizz, which is caused by damage, dryness, and even humidity. Therefore, you won’t have frizzy hair every day. On those days that it just won’t leave you alone, use serum-infused products that deliver nutrients and moisture to your strands. Dove Keratin Repair 1-Minute Serum Shampoo and Conditioner is ideal for daily use on damaged hair. Thanks to the easy-to-absorb serum formula, this helps reconstruct your hair's internal structure to repair it from within.

Brighten and Hydrate Your Face POND'S Bright Triple Glow Serum

For the face, a serum is usually the third step in a simple skincare routine, right after toning. The idea is to apply products in order of consistency, from thinnest to thickest. Right after cleansing and toning, apply a few drops of POND'S Bright Triple Glow Serum all over your face by gently pressing it on. This is a highly concentrated brightening serum with Glutaboost+, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid that work in synergy to give you radiant, smooth, hydrated, and even-toned skin.

Renew Underarm Skin with Deo Serums

Serum deodorants protect you from sweat and odor while taking care of underarm skin.

Serums for your underarms work the same way. The delicate underarm skin absorbs the thinner formula easily, leaving it feeling dry, comfortable, and not sticky. Rexona Advanced Brightening + Anti-Stain combines sunflower seed oil, lemon extract, vitamins C, E and F in one deo serum. Together, these ingredients work to brighten, smoothen, and improve the underarms. Its unique formula also keeps your clothes stain-free.

Dove Intensive Renew Deo Dry Serum Collagen + Vitamin B3 accelerates skin renewal and brightens the underarms. Niacinamide smoothens and evens out the skin tone, while collagen boosts plumpness. It goes on silky and dry, giving your underarms comfortable, 48-hour odor protection.

Get a Full-Body Glow with Vaseline Healthy Bright Gluta Hya Serum Burst Lotions

Give your legs some love with a serum lotion that’s packed with brightening ingredients.

Right after getting out of the shower while your skin is still damp, slather on a generous amount of lotion all over your body. This adds moisture to your skin while keeping all that water from escaping. Use Vaseline Healthy Bright Gluta Hya Serum Burst Lotions, in Flawless Glow and Dewy Radiance variants.

Both formulas have Gluta Glow technology to reduce dullness in the skin. Hyaluron has 10x the brightening power of vitamin C. Flawless Glow has Pro-Retinol or vitamin A, which increases cell turnover and collagen production. While Dewy Radiance has niacinamide that improves skin tone and brightens dull skin.  

Now you know how to glow up! Add brightening serums to every part of your skincare routine for best results. Look for ingredients like Glutaboost, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, retinol, and niacinamide, which work to improve your skin’s health, boosting radiance and glow along the way.
