Vitamin C is at peak revival right now. Once reduced to just another daily vitamin supplement, it is now being hailed as a powerful beauty ingredient, being harnessed for its incredible anti-ageing properties.
With its ability to boost collagen production, fight free radicals (the pollution in the air that ages you) and brighten your complexion, you’d be hard pressed not to find a product without it in the ingredients list right now.
Here are the best vitamin C beauty products on the market right now.
Ren Radiance Perfecting Serum
Designed to specifically improve dull-looking skin, Ren’s Radiance Perfecting Serum targets redness, pigmentation and refines skin tone for a luminous and hydrated-looking visage.
Dermalogica Biolumin-C Serum
Dermalogica’s latest release is a must-have if you’re wanting to reduce the appearance of fine lines. The Biolumin-C Serum packs a potent mix of vitamin C, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 (which is great for boosting collagen production) and lactic acid to exfoliate and remove pigmentation, all while protecting from those pesky free radicals.
Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum
Cult US brand Drunk Elephant’s C-Firma Day Serum is a favourite with the A-List set, due to its powerful, naturally derived ingredients and because the entire range is ideal for those with even the most sensitive skin. If it’s good enough for Gwen P, it’s good enough for us.
