10 of the best Vitamin C serums | Funmi Fetto

When it comes to healthy and glowing skin, Vitamin C is a powerful ally

For your skincare regime to be really effective, you need supercharged ingredients – like vitamin C. This powerful antioxidant does a myriad of things. It protects skin from damaging free radicals (the result of UV exposure), stimulates collagen production (making skin look plump) and combats hyperpigmentation, dark spots and dullness without altering skin’s natural tone (though make sure you use sunscreen). I rate all the products on this page. SkinCeuticals is the original, and still one of the best. Dr Sturm’s formula includes zinc, which helps vitamin C better absorb into the skin. Drunk Elephant is created sans essential oils, alcohols and other ingredients some might find harsh. StriVectin’s formula incorporates retinol without irritation. Both Glow Recipe and Sunday Riley deliver brightening with a capital B. Ole Henriksen includes hyaluronic acid for increased hydration. Biossance is also brilliant for drier skin. Clinicbe, a wonderful new discovery, delivers rapid results. And yes, MZ Skin is expensive but it will give you expensive skin.
