The 10 Best Vitamin C Serums to Get the Moist, Even Skin of Your Dreams



A super matte face used to be the look everyone was going for. Now, everyone wants to look moist. Close-up photos of people showing off their radiant visages under extremely good lighting have taken the place of duck-lip and fish gape selfie poses, and it's probably because they use a good ol' vitamin C serum in their daily routine.

"Vitamin C is a powerhouse, multitasking antioxidant that both protects—neutralizing free radicals to prevent oxidative stress—and repairs—reducing hyperpigmentation and boosting collagen synthesis,"says Dr. Deanne Robinson of Modern Dermatology of Connecticut.

You can take vitamin C orally or in a serum for more visible results. Vitamin C serums are the go-to anti-aging remedy and the antidote to lackluster, dehydrated skin. The powerhouse vitamin is packed with anti-inflammatory properties that help to reduce hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and red spots, ultimately brightening skin overtime. The market is oversaturated with serums that claim to do the work, so I polled a few skin experts to recommend their favorites, ahead.

Revision Skincare C+ is formulated with THD Ascorbic, which is the most stable form of Vitamin C," she explains. "Additionally, the product also offers melapath technology, which helps with targeting residual redness from too much sun exposure."

Phloretin is an antioxidant that penetrates deep into the skin to improve cell turnover and texture and when "added with the concentrated vitamin C,  it targets pigment issues from the sun post summer."

Dr. Welsey is also a big fan of Isdin's Flavo-C serum because it "makes skin feel radiant and moisturized." Because the product is packaged in small glass ampules, the product's potency isn't affected. Dr. Robinson, on the other hand, keeps this stocked because it "contains 8% of pure and stable vitamin C that stays active on the skin for 10 hours" and is infused with antioxidants culled from the Gingko Biloba tree.
