When you are looking for a skin serum, pay close attention to the ingredients. If you want your money’s worth, get yourself skin serums that are packed with antioxidant properties and vitamins.
According to Glamour, vitamin C is a perfect antioxidant many dermatologists recommend in order to achieve brighter skin. Vitamin C also protects from pollution and the harmful UVB/UVA rays. The vitamin has collagen-boosting properties to make your skin look youthful always.
If you are looking forward to increase your vitamin intake, skin serums are the perfect way to do that. In fact, look out for skin serums that contain L-ascorbic acid since this is a pure form of vitamin C, said dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, M.D. to Glamour.
What makes L-ascorbic acid the perfect ingredient is that it penetrates your skin layers more deeply than any other form of vitamin C.
“You should look for serums that contain 10% to 20% vitamin C,” said dermatologist and cofounder of LM Medical, Morgan Rabach, M.D. to Glamour. “Less than 10% is not as effective, and over 20% causes more skin irritation.”
Another vitamin you should look out to on skin serums are vitamin E and ferulic acids which paired with vitamin C will protect your skin better.
