Skin care with Vitamin C

What is the best vitamin C serum for my skin? In theory, everyone can incorporate vitamin C into their skincare routine. However, Ellen Marmur, M.D., a New York based dermatologist and founder of Marmur Metamorphosis Skincare, cautions that too much vitamin C can potentially irritate the skin. It depends on your skin type, but she personally recommends products that contain between 10-15% potency for best results. It's a smart idea to pay attention to your skin type and brand claims too — if you have dry skin, you might want to look for moisturizing ingredients like hyaluronic acid. And if you're looking for a vitamin C serum for oily skin, look for "ascorbic acid" on the labels rather than the oil soluble "ascorbyl palmitate."

Because vitamin C is an unstable ingredient, Wnek recommends looking for a few things to extend your product's shelf life:

A low pH of 3.5 so that it can penetrate the top most layer of skin A dark container to protect from light damage An airtight container to protect the product's longevity Ingredients like vitamin E and Ferulic acid that improve stability of the formula. Below are the best vitamin C serums you can buy, recommended by skin care experts, scientists, and dermatologists. No matter what skin issues you have, you'll find one for your skin type on this list. Apply the serum to clean, dry skin twice a day (in the morning and at night) for best results, and follow with your favorite face moisturizer to seal in the serum and further hydrate the skin.
