How to Choose the Best Vitamin C Antioxidant Serum For Your Skin

Did you know that vitamin C boosts your immune system, may lower the risk of developing some cancers and has a transformative effect on your skin? While you can discuss the first two benefits with a medical professional, you're in the right place to find out what this remarkable substance can do for your skin. 

Unfortunately, humans can not synthesize vitamin C naturally. Therefore, sometimes it's helpful to give your skin a boost by using a vitamin C serum. You can use these products every day and soon be receiving compliments about your glowing appearance.

Read on to learn what to look for when choosing a vitamin C serum.

Decide on Vitamin C Concentration

While you can see benefits with a serum that has a low concentration of vitamin C, you may want to consider a more potent product to increase absorption. But, products with higher levels of vitamin C are not always the best choice.

If you have sensitive skin, you could find a milder product that is less harsh on your skin but still achieves the desired results.

Look for Additional Ingredients

Your skincare beauty routine probably includes several different products. But, when you choose a vitamin C serum, you can benefit from several other ingredients contained in a single product. Ask your supplier if their serum includes substances such as vitamin E.

This nutrient has antioxidant properties that can reduce inflammation and help keep your skin in excellent condition. You can also look for a product that includes glycerin, which helps bind moisture to aid hydration. 

Check the Packaging

If vitamin C comes into contact with light or oxygen, it degrades and becomes less effective. It's essential only to purchase products that come in suitable packaging to prevent serum breakdown. Look for bottles that are dark in colour, or for plastic-covered packaging that prevents light from entering the container. 

Consider the Cost

While you don't want to pay over the odds for your vitamin C serum, you also need to ensure you are receiving a quality product. Don't only shop with the companies that are at the top of the search engine results. These businesses may have paid to rank highly for cosmeceuticals top keywords and they could charge you more to cover their costs.

When you buy from a reputable salon, you can be sure they are looking after your best interests and providing excellent value for money. Talk to our skin expert who can give you skincare routine advice and help you find a topical vitamin C serum that is right for your skin.
