I’ve rounded up 6 incredible natural face serums that are perfect for revamping your 2023 skincare routine. 

Get ready to kiss your most annoying skin issues goodbye and say hello to a face that glows.

Let’s get to it and check out tips for buying and using natural face serums, plus the best options for you.

What to Know Before You Buy Natural Face Serums

Look at the ingredients.

If you’re considering using a serum that has a massive list of ingredients, half of which you can’t pronounce, it’s probably not one you want to use.

You want to make sure you’re not using products with synthetic or petroleum-based ingredients. Instead, you want your organic serum to be made with:

  • Natural botanical oils
  • Restorative antioxidants
  • Essential vitamins
  • Peptides
  • Hyaluronic acid

The natural face serums I’ll share below have left all the harmful ingredients out. They’re packed with age-defying ingredients that are sure to help you reach your skin goals in no time.

Speaking of, know your skincare goals.

I’ll be very real with you—there are no “magic products” that are going to drastically change the way you look and feel. I’m not going to lie to you—if you your goal is to remove ten years of poor lifestyle choices from your face, you’re out of luck! As of now, there aren’t any products that can do that (but I’ll keep my eyes peeled just in case).

Skincare goals should be achievable, for example:

  • I’d like to soften the fine lines around my eyes.
  • I’m hoping to diminish the appearance of pores.
  • I want to control blackheads and acne.
  • I want to restore a “youthful glow” to my cheeks.
  • I’m building a routine to protect against sun damage.

Understand organic and natural face serums.

When it comes to products for the skin, the FDA doesn’t regulate the term ‘organic’ as it does with agricultural products. The best way to ensure you’re using an authentic natural serum is by purchasing from a trusted brand that’s transparent and shares ingredients in their products, like the ones I’ve shared below.

Final Tips For Using Natural Face Serums

Interested in a few final tips before you start using your new product? Here are some of my go-to’s for using serums like a beauty pro!

Face Serum Uses

For starters, serums are thinner and lighter than moisturizers so they’re easier to apply and feel better on the skin. They’re also loaded with vitamins and antioxidants that can fight aging, protect the skin from UV rays, and help improve uneven skin tone.

When to Apply Face Serum

You should apply face serum daily as a part of your regular skincare routine. You’ll put it on after you cleanse your face and before you apply moisturizer. Some face serums are used in the morning or in the evening, while others are used both times of the day. Check with your specific product on when to apply.

How to Apply Serum

One of the most fantastic things about using face serum is how easy it is! First of all, you’ll cleanse and dry your face. Then, you’ll apply the serum. Some serums will direct you to apply to your fingertips and lightly dab onto your face, while others will suggest rubbing it in using a circular motion. Be sure you read the directions.
