Now Trending – Vitamin C Serums Are As Popular As Ever, Thanks To Properties That Protect Skin From Uv Damage While Reducing Wrinkles And Brown Spots
July | August | September 2020 issue
THESE SERUMS AREN’T NEW BUT THEY’RE HOTTER THAN EVER.
Why? you ask. “Because it works,” says Carol Clinton, MD in Columbus, OH. A wide body of research suggests vitamin C stimulates collagen; minimizes scars, fine lines, and wrinkles; and improves brown spots. Because it’s an antioxidant, it also protects against sun damage. But all serums aren’t created equal. Look for one with at least 15% to 20% vitamin C, or L-ascorbic acid, so your skin can absorb it properly. Extra ingredients like vitamin E, hyaluronic acid, and ferulic acid boost its effectiveness while minimizing side effects, Clinton says. For best results, apply it in the morning, after you wash your face and before moisturizer and sunscreen. —KARA MAYER ROBINSON
