Best hydrating serum to add to your skincare regime STAT! | Body + Soul

We often think that if we have oily or blemish prone skin we need to damp down on the products, on the moisture and on the oil we're putting on our face. But the fact is, whatever your skin type - oily, blemish prone, combination or super-dooper dry, hydration is completely essential to getting it looking its' best.
Just as our bodies feel better after drinking our eight cups a day, so does our skin, when it gets the big long drink it deserves. And while there are certainly those who can benefit from a heavy, creamy moisturiser, pretty much everyone can get on board with a hydrating serum, which works to penetrate deeply into your skin, moisturising without clogging and offering a layer of hydration perfect for all skin types.
Edible Beauty's Probiotic Radiance Tonic
Edible Beauty are the gods of seriously yummy skincare and this is a super gorgeous and affordable serum that is both clever and hydrating at the same time. It's enriched with the live probiotic strain Lactobacillus Bulgaricus Ferment (try saying that five times fast) which in a nutshell works to restore the skin's microbe balance which encourages skin health and helps it resist breakouts and irriation. So if you do have acne-prone skin, this is a good one for cutting it off at the pass, and stopping the irritation before it happens. "This is my new favourite HG serum/moisturiser," writes one reviewer, adding, "I don't know what it is about it but it just leaves my skin super hydrated and moisturised. I've been looking forward to my morning skincare because of this."
