Vitamin C has been one of the most highly raved skincare ingredients in recent times. A lot of brands have incorporated in into their products and with good reason. It’s one of the best anti-ageing products there is.
Using Vitamin C topically has tremendous benefits for your skin. It protects the skin from the damaging effects of the sun, and it reverses existing damage. It also helps to clear hyper-pigmentation, and brightens the skin for a very visible glow. The best way you can actually get the benefits of vitamin C is to use a vitamin C serum.
In no particular order, here are our picks of vitamin C serums you should totally try:
1. Radha Beauty
This is one we particularly like because it also contains hyaluronic acid, another awesome skin care ingredient. It also has 20% vitamin C content which is great. The brand promises that ”It will help fade sun spots & discoloration, refine skin texture, reduce wrinkle formation, and minimize existing wrinkles”.
You can order Radha beauty here from N9,000.
2. Skinceuticals CE Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid.
Skinceuticals is a really great but high end product. The brand promises to ”improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness, and brightens skin’s complexion”. It’s got really great reviews, the only downside is that it’s really expensive. But if you’ve got a few extra bucks to spend, we think it’s totally worth it.
You can get it here for N74,629.
3. Lavyanna Vitamin C Serum
Lavyanna is a Nigerian owned brand that’s produced in the UK. This product has a whopping 25% vitamin C content which makes it one of our top picks. It also has hyaluronic acid, green tea and lemon peel in it to ‘‘brighten, firm and repair your skin”.
The Lavyanna Vit C serum is really affordable and you can get it here for just N7,500.
4. Azure Naturals Vitamin C Serum
This particular Vitamin C serum also contains hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C and amino acids. So it packs a punch in terms of the benefits for your skin. Also, the brand claims that ”it contains no alcohol, no parabens, no GMO’s and is gluten free”. And we think that’s a major plus. Get it here for N15,000.
