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.
