If there’s a popularity contest among all vitamins, we bet Vitamin C would have a landslide win. It is our favorite go-to medication for colds—and do you know how many people get multiple instances of colds in a year? A LOT. And Vitamin C is the potent solution for it, not only to kick the cold out, but prevent the body from catching it or other viral diseases as well.
With all the good stuff Vitamin C brings to our body, it is only logical to think that it would be great for the skin as well. It’s a very effective antioxidant that definitely improves the skin’s condition by erasing acne scars, boosting production or collagen, and of course minimize the signs of aging…yup, it’s kind of a miracle ingredient!
But does that mean we just have to drink vitamin C daily and our skin will be better? Well, that’s not the case. If you’re that person who hates taking medicines orally, this will be good news for you: the skin will only best benefit from Vitamin C if it’s applied topically. Hence, the vitamin C serums. Let’s take a look at some of the best ones out there that would powerfully transform your skin.
Among the well-loved ones in Sephora is the C-Firma Day Serum from Drunk Elephant. This is raved because of its effective delivery of ingredients that cause well-hydrated, plump and oh-so-smooth skin. If you’re thinking of getting this, expect a radiant and bright skin after using it. How nice, right?
Dr. Dennis Gross created a special formula serum to make sure that you can reap the best benefits out of its main ingredients: collagen amino acids, and of course, vitamin C. With this serum you can achieve a clear and smooth complexion that is immediately felt right after minutes of application.
Sunday Riley got its own vitamin C serum called C.E.O Rapid Flash Brightening Serum. It’s one that will bring out the luminous radiance from within, making you look so bright, luminous, and youthful. It blurs out your wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, and even removes redness in your face.
Algenist aptly named its serum, “Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Vitamin C+ Serum,” because indeed, it is a genius product. This powerful serum helps significantly in minimizing discoloration, age spots, deep wrinkles, and fine lines. Thanks to its vitamin C derivative and microalgae oil, the serum is indeed one must have in a daily routine for a younger looking skin.
We love anything food-related—and when you say the serum has “superfoods,” we’re already anticipating it. This serum from Youth To The People doesn’t disappoint on that area, as this Firm and Brighten Vitamin C has spinach and kale added into the ingredients. This serum combats stressors and free radicals too—and you will look extraordinary after just a few months of use,
Peter Thomas Roth knows the vitamin C game too well, reflected on this mega-potent serum called Potent-C™ Power Serum. The brand isn’t joking when it says “potent”—it uses the powerful THD ascorbate which is 50x more potent that the vitamin C we’re used to, to help the skin have a beautiful young and glowing look.
Last but definitely not the least, we tag Dior for a fabulous work they’ve done to come up with the One Essential Skin Boosting Super Serum. This serum targets toxins and outdoor stressors to revitalize the skin. It also detoxifies the skin and regenerates it to give you that almost-perfect complexion.
Okay, now that we’re done with the list, let’s work on revitalizing you skin, eh? Try one or two of these serums and you’ll never ever regret it.
