Amazing Free Serum Skins

Staring at the same screen over and over, day in and day out can make things a little bit Meh…. So, what do you do when you get bored or lose inspiration?  I find that sometimes it’s a good idea to mix it up a little and give things a fresh new look!

As we all know Serum is an absolute beast, and Xfer has decided to make it even more beastly!  The Serum 1.213 update allows users to dive in deep and create their own unique Serum skins!  This has opened up a whole new world allowing users to completely customize your Serum interface.

If you can’t be bothered spending the time designing your own and would prefer to use Serum skins made by other people, then you have come to the right place.  There are so many Serum skins available on the interwebs.  Some are paid and some are free.  I have compiled a list of my favorite free Serum skins to make your search a little bit easier.

Also, if you have a little bit of $$ and want to spend it on a fresh new Serum skin, I have also listed a few of my favs HERE.

If you don’t know how to install your fresh new Serum skins, never fear, I have prepared some simple installation instructions at the end of this article and I will guide you through the process step by step.
