Editor’s Pick: Our Favorite Vitamin C Serum
If there is one thing everyone needs in their collection of skin care products, it’s a serum packed with vitamin C. Okay, that statement is a bit bold, but seriously this stuff is amazing. Vitamin C—also known in skin care circles as l-asorbic acid—is an antioxidant that can deliver visible benefits to your skin. Vitamin C serums, especially, can help brighten the appearance of a dull or lackluster complexion, giving you a more radiant glow. And, if you need some more convincing, vitamin C serums are also known to help diminish the signs of aging skin—think: those wrinkles and fine lines that develop over time.
SkinCeuticals’ C E Ferulic
One of our favorite vitamin C serums is SkinCeuticals’ C E Ferulic. This daytime serum synergistically combines vitamin C and E with ferulic acid for some antioxidant goodness. Antioxidants are a great way to help protect your skin from environmental aggressors like free radicals and pollution. These uncontrollable factors can cause our skin to show premature signs of aging in the form of fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of firmness. The serum is great for anyone looking to brighten the appearance of the skin’s surface and can even be extended to your neck and chest.
To use, after cleansing each morning, apply 4-5 drops to a dry face, neck, and chest and follow with a moisturizer and SPF-packed sunscreen.
