The Best Vitamin C Serums

Vitamin C is one of those vitamins for the skin that is sometimes overlooked. But just as Vitamin C is a vital part of your diet, it should also be an essential step in your skincare regime.

The human body does not produce the antioxidant Vitamin C naturally, it needs to obtain Vitamin C through nutritional and topical skincare.

Why is Vitamin C important for the skin?

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, which means it protects our skin cells from damaging free radicals caused by UV-related damage. Especially for us, who are subject to the Australian climate, the protection that Vitamin C provides is essential.

What exactly does Vitamin C do?

  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Firms and brightens complexion
  • Evens out skin tone as it is a tyrosinase inhibitor (stops production and stimulation of pigment)
  • Boosts the efficacy of sun protection
  • Strengthens the capillary network
  • Reduces inflammation

    Many reasons why Vitamin C should be incorporated into your skincare routine!

How to use a Vitamin C serum

It is best to use your Vitamin C serum in the morning on clean skin, followed by your prescribed moisturiser (and SPF, always!).

When introducing a new serum into the skin, go slowly. You can start your Vitamin C serum every second night and increase frequency once the skin is accustomed to the serum.
