Serums, Serums Everywhere! Part II: Vitamin C Boosters

Welcome to part II of Serums, Serums Everywhere! This installment will focus on facial serums that contain Vitamin C as a primary ingredient. I hope you checked out part I which focuses on lifting and energizing serums.

Studies show the regular use of Vitamin C products can significantly help to regulate melanin production and hinder hyper-pigmentation in your skin. This means that Vitamin C can seriously fight early signs of aging on your face! Here are my top three picks for Vitamin C infused facial serums. Enjoy!

SkinCeuticals Serum 15 AOX, $75 for 1 oz. This serum combines 15% L-Ascorbic Acid with Ferulic Acid to provide antioxidant and anti-aging benefits. Apply four to five drops in the morning after cleansing your face and neck and follow with a moisturizer and sunscreen for best results.

The serum may tickle for a second when you first apply it because of the highly concentrated Vitamin C, but when it dries, it will leave your skin glowing.

For one more Vitamin C serum,

Cellex-C Serum for Sensitive Skin, $90, claims to make you look five to ten years younger! It's a lightweight, oil-free, serum that helps improve elasticity and resilience in your skin with a pH balance especially for those with sensitive skin.

It contains a bunch of ingredients including: L-Ascorbic Acid, tyrosine, and zinc, which work together to create a firm and youthful looking face with less fine lines, wrinkles or age spots.

I use the Obagi C-Rx system serum. It is usually found at dermatologist's offices. My medical esthetician carries it. It has changed my skin completely. It also contains 4% hydroquinone which is a type of pigment lightener. I use it on the back of my hands and my age spots have faded dramatically and my hands look years younger. All the spots I got from using birth control and being in the sun have faded dramatically. It is expensive but I only use a few drops a day so it lasts for about three months. Worth every penny.

Some people make their own C serums with unbuffered L-Ascorbic acid crystals from health food stores. L-Ascorbic oxidizes REAL fast, so making a little bit everyday with some distilled water is the best way to not waste any. I haven't tried it because I'm afraid a C serum will break me out.

I have been using the SkinCeuticals serum for about 3 weeks and my face looks incredible, if I do say so myself. It is money well spent in my book.
