The best vitamin C serums
When it comes to skincare ingredients, there are many that fall short of the hype surrounding them. Vitamin C isn’t one of them. Considered a great all-rounder, it’s the potent antioxidant that’s anti-inflammatory and effective at improving uneven skin tone too. Demand for the vitamin is sky high - in fact, there’s been a whopping 3370% hike in saves for the term, ‘vitamin C serum’ on Pinterest , revealing just how essential this brightening antioxidant skin-fuel has become to our skincare regimes.
A must-have in anyone’s beauty arsenal for helping fend off free radicals and prevent loss of elasticity and the appearance of wrinkles, serums are the best form of delivery due to their higher concentrations of active ingredients. Airtight bottles, pumps or single-use packaging will preserve the integrity of your product better than pots or jars and (as a word of caution) if you’re new to the active, start off at a lower percentage to keep irritation to a minimum.
Which ones deliver? Here are our favourites in order of concentration.
