Lightweight serum formulas like this new one are "fantastic, especially for those with combination or oily skin,” Ranella Hirsch, a derm based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, says. Aside from the silkier texture, these serums are often infused with ingredients found in traditional skincare serums. The difference in these SPF-filled serums versus skincare ones is in the application. “Dermatologists, myself included, advise applying serum under moisturizer,” Hirsch says. “But in the case of sunscreen serums, it’s the last step, like you would apply any suncare product.” Similarly, don’t let the word serum trip you up. Always apply as much as you would with any SPF lotion or cream: a half teaspoon or two finger lengths.
