Vitamin C is great for the body and offers all kinds of beneficial nutrients, but can it help the skin? In short, yes! In fact, it is brilliant for the skin. It offers a range of benefits such as clarifying the skin and adding a radiant glow to your complexion.
Vitamin C serums to reverse the signs of time
Every year we blow out the candles and make a wish to the fairy godmother that she would be kind and delay the signs of ageing. We find ways to incorporate everyday habits such as healthy eating and skin care products to prevent the onset of ageing. However what many forget is that there are key active ingredients you should be keeping an eye out for.
While we would love to say hit the highest concentration first, it is always best using wisdom, patience and perseverance. When it comes to active ingredients it is best to wean yourself onto new products to avoid breakouts and reactions due to overstimulation.
Top three contenders

As you can see there are no one-size fits all when it comes to vitamin c serums. It is best to consult a skin care professional who can assess your skin and advise on the best purchase. If you are not close to a skin clinic try our free online skin assessment as a recommendation.
