With Navratri just around the corner, we’re all gearing up for loads of mithai but it’s also time to prep for all the skin problems that will come along with it, no thanks to the makeup, sweat and clogged pores. The festive season takes a toll on our skin and that’s why it is extremely important to care for our skin beforehand.

Adding the right skincare serum to your regime can aid in dealing with skin problems and preparing your skin for what is to come. Here are some essential serums that you need to add to your regime.

2. Vitamin C
A Vitamin C face serum can brighten up your face, and reduce hyperpigmentation and dark circles. This serum also provides sun damage, soothes sunburn, heals skin and promotes collagen production.
