What’s the one ingredient that will give you brighter, even toned skin? Vitamin C. Adding a vitamin C-packed serum to your daily skincare routine will reduce the formation of free radicals (rogue molecules that destroy the proteins that keep skin plump), provide anti-inflammatory benefits and minimise the formation of dark spots. In short, this powerful antioxidant is your key to flawless skin. Here are six serums that will help you get the skin you’ve always wanted.
