Vitamin C Serum

A great place to start is with a Vitamin C serum as this particular formulation enhances penetration of the antioxidant vitamin into the deeper layers of the skin. Vitamin C is an essential skin nutrient that helps your skin’s natural defense against environmental damage from the sun’s UV, pollution and lifestyle stress. There are many forms and strengths of vitamin C available in serum form making choosing the right strength for your skin’s needs easier. You can even target the eye area with Dermalogica Biolumin-C Eye Serum to help diminish fine lines and prevent signs of premature ageing. This powerfully anti-ageing cosmeceutical ingredient also helps speed up skin healing and firms the skin thanks to the way it can stimulate natural collagen production in the dermis. This results in a more healthy and visibly youthful complexion.

Vitamin C Serum For The Face

To protect your skin against free radical damage that can cause premature skin ageing, a high potency vitamin C serum for the face is ideal, especially when used in conjunction with a good quality sunscreen. A vitamin C serum for the face such as the asap Super C Complex, Skinceuticals C E Ferulic or Medik8 C Tetra in their serum form are typically lightweight and readily absorbed by the skin. This makes them an ideal choice for all skin types including oily, in addition to being easy to layer under moisturiser, SPF and makeup.

Vitamin C Serum For Acne Scars

A fast absorbing vitamin C serum works wonders on the skin to help heal acne scarring as the collagen stimulation enhances natural skin healing processes. Skin tone becomes more even whilst wound healing speeds up as the vitamin C helps to strengthen the skin and enhance its natural defense. This is an ideal product choice for combination and oily skins prone to breakouts as it also feels lightweight on the skin. Try the La Roche-Posay Pure Vitamin C10 Serum, Ultraceuticals Ultra C Firming Serum or the ever popular Skinceuticals Silymarin CF for best results.

Vitamin C Cream

Vitamin C creams are also popular options, as they help to hydrate and nourish the skin while providing antioxidant protection. These products are typically thicker and richer in texture than serums, making them ideal for those with dry or mature skin. Ideal for use day or night, a vitamin C cream works wonders for strengthening the skin and providing enhanced antioxidant protection. The Murad Essential-C Firming Radiance Day Cream offers both antioxidant vitamin C protection in hand with skin hydrating ingredients to moisturise.

Vitamin C Moisturiser

Similarly to vitamin C creams, a good vitamin C moisturiser effectively delivers antioxidant protection to shield the skin from premature ageing whilst delivering vital moisture and hydration via a creamy texture. With various percentages of vitamin C available in cream moisturiser form, this is a convenient product choice to help keep the skin looking healthy and youthful.

Vitamin C Oil

For more dry and devitalised skin conditions, a vitamin C enriched oil such as the O Cosmedics Vitamin C Hemp Seed Oil is a great alternative skincare product that contains stabilised and often suspended vitamin C in an oil based formulation that can be applied like a serum under moisturiser. The benefit of this product type is the oil nourishes and replenishes dry skin whilst infusing vital antioxidant protection, to help protect the skin against environmental damage and signs ageing.
