You probably heard of vitamin c serums by now and how they can increase your skin’s collagen production for younger looking skin but how do you know which one to pick? We break down how to find the best vitamin c serum for your skin type.
L-Ascorbic Vitamin C Serums For The Win
L-Ascorbic is the most powerful form of vit c serum due to its low pH levels which allows it to penetrate skin more effectiver. The only drawback is that L-Ascorbic acid gets oxidated upon exposure to air and heat which will change its color and render it less effective. As a result we recommend keeping your serums in the fridge.
Price : Affordable To High End
Top picks for the best vitamin c serums of 2016 include high end like the pricey Skinceuticals line to accessible and affordable items from companies like Oz Naturals and Cosmetic Skin Solutions. One of the most important things to consider when purchasing a serum is its pH levels because lower pH levels are more effective. You can easily test the pH levels of a product by using pH test strips. Ingredients are also important; many serums also incorporate hyalurinic acid, vitamin E, ferulic acid and other ingredients which all work together for maximum results.
Your Skin Type
Vitamin c serums range may range in concentrations from 10% to 25% in L-Ascorbic content. If you have sensitive skin we suggest starting off with a lower concentration and slowly working your way up in order to avoid irritation.
Incorporating a vitamin c serum into your skin regimen is one of the easiest ways to improve your skin. After all, who doesn’t love a fresh, glowing complexion?
