The $24 Vitamin C Serum We Swear By For A Brighter Complexion

by

With all that’s going on in the world, it’s nice to know there are a few sure-fire ways to brighten up your day: the episode of Friendswhere Ross is fine, a sighting of an outrageously cute puppy, and if we’re being literal about it, a vitamin C serum.

Because if you’re chasing a bright, clear complexion with out-of-this-world glow, vitamin C is no doubt your best bet. But while any topical with vit-C loaded in will help, a serum is still the best way to get a concentrated dose of the stuff.

Get a good one in your routine and it’ll accelerate your skin’s natural regeneration process altogether, going to work on pesky dark spots and pigmentation, stimulating collagen production and giving your face some serious luminosity.

So, if you’re ready to get into the glow game, we’ve rounded up the best vitamin C serums on the market. We advise a protective pair of sunglasses; the future’s looking bright.

  1. I’ve been using the AlyaSkin serum for about a week now, and it’s not too bad. I’m going to try the Mecca brand one next. It gets great reviews online, and it’s reasonably priced.

  2. I went into Mecca today. I applied the Mecca brand Vitamin C serum to the back of my hands, and then went about my shopping. WOW! It’s amazing! It absorbed quickly, no greasy residue, and left my skin feeling really soft and smooth. I will definitely be getting some of this ASAP!

  3. While getting vitamin C in a serum seems a good idea, I grow my own capsicums and they are so rich in vitamin C, but I don't put on my face. ha ha

    Does anyone really use this and it has made a difference? Not interested in a comment from the spammers though.

  4. Vitamin c products are great – I used a Body Shop product ages ago, and it was instantly skin brightened on my skin!

    Be warned tho, Vitamin C products are meant to make the skin more sensitive to sunlight so using a sunscreen is really important with these products. FYI. 🙂
