Ask any skincare expert or dermatologist and they will tell you that vitamin C is the one skincare ingredient that everyone and anyone should incorporate into their skincare routine. The reason? It is the ultimate hardworking ingredient that offers multiple benefits for the skin – boosting collagen production, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, evening out and brightening skin tone, minimising blemishes and preventing the occurrence of acne breakouts.
Ready to listen to those experts? We’ve lined up the latest vitamin C serums ripe for your picking.
With a waterless formula and an impressive 35 per cent concentration of vitamin C, this potent serum promises to give skin a visible glow as it zaps blemishes, repairs cellular damage, fights inflammation and smooths skin’s texture. The formula also has other antioxidants such as superoxide dismutase and gluthathione to strengthen the potency of the vitamin C.
Beyond how fruity and energising this face serum smells, it also boasts over 480,0000 nutrient-rich microbubbles that encapsulate vitamins, minerals, fruit and vegetable extracts to give skin a nutrition and hydration boost with a huge dose of antioxidants that protect skin from further damage. Talk about food for your skin.
Mixing different forms of vitamin C – 15 per cent l-ascorbic acid, 0.5 per cent ferulic acid – for an ideal potency, this helps to neutralise pollution, environmental stressors and the damaging effects of free radicals for fresher, glowier, younger-looking and healthier skin. What’s more, added pumpkin ferment extract and pomegranate enzyme also makes it super hydrating, replenishing skin’s lipids.
The vitamin C in this serum comes from Amazonian Camu Camu berry, which boasts 30 times more vitamin C compared to an orange. In this formula, the highly concentrated vitamin C is better absorbed into skin as it is formulated to have a lower molecular weight. This makes it more efficient in kickstarting natural collagen production, brightening, smoothing and firming the skin.
As powerful as vitamin C is, its efficacy can be further when it is formulated with vitamin E — and this serum does exactly that. Combining vitamin C and E and adding hyaluronic acid and the brand’s Thermal Spring Water, this serum is said to transform skin in 10 days, making it radiant, plump and flawless.
This nourishing face oil is infused with glow-enhancing vitamin C meticulously blended in a base of cold-pressed, red raspberry and evening primrose seed oils to not only brighten, even out and hydrate skin, but also calm and soothe dryness, inflammation and irritation.
A warrior that helps skin fight all signs of ageing, this potent vitamin C serum is supercharged with a specialised delivery system and skin-loving complex to ensure that it activates skin from within. This gives it effective antioxidant action, protecting skin against free radical damage, and at the same time awakening collagen production to make skin smooth and wrinkle-free with a lit-from-within glow.
