vitamin c serumMSN looked into how vitamin C serum could help in the anti-ageing battle. 

Vitamin C is thought to have anti-ageing properties and high concentration serums are thought to be particularly effective.

Dr. Ross Perry, medical director of Cosmedics Skin Clinics, was invited to give expert advice. He explained:

Not only are vitamin C serums great for their anti-ageing benefits but they can also help protect your skin from damage, especially the harmful UVA and UVB rays. However, they aren’t substitutes for using sunscreens. Vitamin C serums can rejuvenate your skin, reducing fine lines and making it appear plumper and brighter. They can also help to even out skin tone and reduce the appearance of under-eye circles.

Vitamin C Serums

What is Vitamin C Serum? 

We all have collagen present in our bodies and primarily Its responsible for the plumpness of our skin. However, as we age the production of collagen begins to slow down resulting in our skin losing its elasticity and youthfulness.

Vitamin C serum works as an antioxidant and can stimulate collagen production which may reduce the effects of aging, such as wrinkles.

Serums are different from creams and other products with vitamin C because of the higher concentrations, which allow people to get the most out of the product and see more noticeable results. Vitamin C serum tends to be completely natural, meaning there are no other harsh chemicals or ingredients which can irritate the skin.

Benefits of Vitamin C Serum

  • Vitamin C works as an antioxidant which helps repair the skin and boost collagen production which slows down as we age. By using Vitamin C serum it can rejuvenate your skin making it appear more plump, brighter and reduce fine lines.
  • It can also help to even out skin tone and reduce the appearance of under-eye circle
  • Vitamin C serum helps protects your skin from damage, particularly the harmful UVA and UVB rays, although it isn’t a substitute from using an SPF.

Vitamin C Serums to Consider

Dr Ross Perry says:

Dr Murad Advanced Active Radiance Serum is great as it Improves brightness, clarity and radiance whilst protecting skin against environmental aggressors. The product helps reverse visible signs of environmental damage.

I’d also recommend the award winning Skinceuticals C E FERULIC which is a Vitamin C antioxidant that delivers advanced environmental protection and improves the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

The above are pricey but certainly do the job. For less expensive try Clarins or Clinique as alternatives.
