Ever searching for the holy grail that is younger skin, we at Independent Woman thought we might turn our attention to serums. Younger, firmer, brighter and stronger, in a desperate bid to beat the clock we have found you four of the best.

Creme De La Mer Radiant Serum

Dull complexions in need of a lift may find a few drops of Creme De La Mer's Radiant Serum just the thing. Designed to target dullness and discoloration, the potent serum is packed with the reparative benefits of fresh sea ingredients. At €260 per 30ml this one doesn't come cheap, but it does at the very least leave skin brighter, balanced and well defined and two drops daily is all it takes.

Available from Brown Thomas, priced at €260



Ren Keep Young and Beautiful Serum

In the words of Juliet 'What's in a name?'. To which our answer would be 'actually, quite a lot'. The fact that it suggests young and beautiful may explain why Ren's Keep Young and Beautiful has been flying off the shelves, but the clever bit is that it also manages to do what it says on the tin!

This bio-active serum is loaded with skin nourishing goodies like hyalyronic acid and vitamin C to prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It penetrates deeply, the end result is plump, smooth and well hydrated skin.

Available from Arnotts, priced at €54



Eve Lom Intense Firming Serum

Eve Lom's newly released firming serum promises to nip and tuck in all the right places. Unusually, it does all this thanks to the power of MILK! The Intense Firming Serum's key concentrate is MPC which, although usually found in the white stuff is used to good effect to strengthen the dermis and improve skin structure. The end result is brighter, tighter, younger looking skin - who would have thought of that!



Priced at €110, available from REVIVE



Kiehls Acai Damage Repairing Serum

Stressed out skin searching for a little rest and recuperation may well find solace in Acai Damage Repairing Serum by Kiehls. Packed with detoxifying acai berry, the ultra concentrated formula is both silicon and paraben free and works to help repair skin tone, texture and elasticity. Apply overnight for a sleeker you by morning.

Available from Kiehls, priced at €43.00
