Together with hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C is arguably one of the power stars of the skin care industry. It reverses signs of aging, targets pigmentation, stimulates collagen and protects against UV damage.
A simple application can give an overall younger looking skin. Here are the top 5 most popular vitamin C serums.
Obagi Professional-C Serum 15%
Containing L-ascorbic acid, Obagi’s Professional-C Serum penetrates deeply to target free radicals. This high performance serum is yellowish in colour due to the concentrations of Vitamin C and comes in 3 different strengths. Use the 10% serum if you have sensitive or irritated skin, otherwise apply on the 15% and 20% serum for most skin types to achieve radiant skin.
Skinceuticals C E Ferulic
Skinceuticals is the skin care’s industry leading brand for Vitamin C serums. In particular, C E Ferulic is Skinceuticals’ answer to consumer’s increasing demand for antioxidant serums. On top of Ferulic acid which helps to neutralise free radicals, it also contains both Vitamin C and E which protects the skin against UV environmental damage and promotes healing. If you have sensitive skin, try Skinceuticals Serum 10 AOX+ for Vitamin C benefits.
PCA Skin C & E Strength
C&E Strength is PCA Skin’s answer to Skinceuticals’ CE Ferulic. Containing the same amount of Vitamin C at 15%, this is an affordable alternative that delivers similar results. Try C&E Strength to minimise fine lines, strengthen and even skin tone.
Dermalogica AGE Smart Multivitamin Power Serum
Dermalogica’s AGE Smart Multivitamin Power Serum contains three antioxidants, Vitamin A, C and E, in one product to deliver effective and convenient defense against skin aging. While milder in comparison to other vitamin serums in the market, it is a convenient product that is applied under the moisturiser for all over skin repair.
Murad Essential-C Daily Renewal Complex
Murad’s Essential-C Daily Renewal Complex is easy to apply and has a smooth after feel on the skin. Apply under your moisturiser to stimulate collagen, decrease fine lines and age spots and protect against damage.
