HOW TO CHOOSE A VITAMIN C SERUM FOR YOUR SKIN TYPE

Vitamin C is considered an essential nutrient, but it can’t be produced naturally in the body. To encourage collagen, protect skin against oxidative stress and support the natural regeneration of cells, the ingredient has been used in skincare formulas.




The antioxidant benefits of vitamin C assists every complexion. For universal support, SkinCeuticals has developed unique vitamin C serums for all skin types. In this guide, see why the nutrient should be implemented into your skincare routine and how to do it. The best vitamin C serum for sensitive skin, ageing skin concerns and more are ahead.

CAN YOU USE VIMTAIN C FOR ALL SKIN TYPES?

All skin is unique, and the care needed to support it is too. Whilst the benefits of vitamin C are important for the health of all skin types, its implementation should support individual skin needs. Vitamin C type L-ascorbic acid is at the core of SkinCeuticals formulas. A potent and refined form, L-ascorbic acid or ‘pure vitamin C’ can deliver visible benefits to all skin types. Universal benefits from using a vitamin C serum include:

• Protection from skin cell oxidisation. All skin types risk exposure to oxidative stress (or cell stress) resulting from UV radiation when we expose skin to the sun. Vitamin C helps to neutralise free radicals – which are cells impacted by external stress. Left alone, free radicals can motivate visible signs of ageing like fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin.

• Boosted collagen production. Vitamin C encourages collagen synthesis As our natural production of these skin-firming and volumising structural proteins slows with age, vitamin C helps to encourage its presence in skin.

• Reduced appearance of dark spots. Another form of skin ageing from UV exposure, dark spots and hyperpigmentation contribute to uneven skin tone and blotchiness. Vitamin C serums help to visibly correct dark spots.




HOW TO CHOOSE A VITAMIN C SERUM?

Your skincare routine should respond to your skin type’s unique needs. Common ingredients combined in vitamin C serums include vitamin E, vitamin A and ferulic acid, which work together to enhance antioxidant benefits. To prevent premature skin ageing and promote a brightened complexion, SkinCeuticals have developed a range of vitamin C serums for all skin types. Find your corresponding formula below.




VITAMIN C SERUM FOR AGEING

A high potency vitamin C serum is recommended to prevent premature signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles. C E Ferulic Vitamin C Serum is a specially designed anti-ageing vitamin C serum for dry skin. A high concentration of 15% pure vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is combined with 1% vitamin E and 0.5% ferulic acid. This assists in promoting and enhancing the antioxidant benefits of vitamin C – resulting in the visible improvement of lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness in skin and dulled complexions.

VITAMIN C SERUM FOR OILY SKIN

Excess oil-flow results from overactive oil glands, enlarged pores and skin moisture barrier stress. When oil combines with bacteria and dirt, clogged pores can follow, leading to breakouts and blemishes. Silymarin CF Vitamin C Serum For Oily Skin is a vitamin C serum for mild acne-prone skin and oily skin concerns. 15% pure vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is combined with 0.5% milk thistle extract and 0.5% salicylic acid. This helps to prevent oil oxidation, exfoliate dead skin and minimise the appearance of pores, along with antioxidant protection, for smoother, brightened skin.

VITAMIN C SERUM FOR SENSTIIVE SKIN

A gentle formulation of vitamin C is recommended for sensitive skin types. Serum 10 AOX Vitamin C Serum For Sensitive Skin is developed for use by this skin type, and is free from fragrance. To gain antioxidant benefits without overwhelming skin, 10% pure vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is combined with 0.2% ferulic acid, a plant-based antioxidant which helps to neutralise free radicals and enhance the stability of vitamin C. If unsure, always consult your dermatologist. Discover Serum 10 AOX Vitamin C Serum For Sensitive Skin.
