To go from lackluster to luminous, you need a powerful serum. Look for one with star ingredients hyaluronic acid and antioxidant vitamin C. Hyaluronic acid draws water to the skin, moisturizing and temporarily plumping fine lines and wrinkles.

Since vitamin C has been shown to add this extra protection against UVA and UVB rays, it's best to apply the serum every morning.
