How do I know which Vitamin C is right for me?
With several highly effective formulas to choose from it’s easy to find your perfect match.
A hero skincare ingredient like Vitamin C brings a lot to the table. The antioxidant, which is also called L-ascorbic acid, has been proven to prevent environmental and UV damage, brighten overall skin tone, reduce dark spots, and boost collagen production. Impressive, right? Those amazing benefits are why the highly active ingredient is considered essential for all skin types, but it’s just as important to find it in a formula that meets your skin’s unique needs. Whether your complexion is sensitive, dry, oily or aging, the great news is that you’re in the right place to meet a perfect match. Read on to find out the best Vitamin C serum for your skin type from the Vivier range.
A highly stabilized blend of 10% l-ascorbic acid, glycol and citrus extract make this Vitamin C serum an ideal choice for sensitive skin. The oil-free formula will help to reduce signs of environmental damage, including fine lines, wrinkles and an uneven skin texture and tone. This is also a great option for anyone who has never used Vitamin C before.
Formulated to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone and reduce mild hyperpigmentation (aka dark spots), this serum offers antioxidant benefits with an illuminating boost. The mix contains 8% l-ascorbic acid and 2% arbutin, a fruit-derived ingredient with proven brightening power. It also exfoliates and inhibits the development of excess melanin, thanks to resorcinol.
Does your face get a little shiny only in certain areas? This oil-free serum, featuring 10% l-ascorbic acid, offers advanced anti-aging benefits without clogging pores. The combination of Vitamin C with peptides, such as lysine and hydrolyzed yeast protein, helps to increase collagen production and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Along with 10% l-ascorbic acid and collagen-boosting peptides, this formula includes Vitamin E. Known to deeply nourish skin while also preventing environmental damage, Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant on its own – but it works exceptionally well alongside Vitamin C. Together these ingredients create a united force that reduces signs of aging while enhancing a hydrated, luminous, and smooth complexion.
Offering advanced anti-aging benefits, this new serum is a potent blend of 15% l-ascorbic acid (our highest concentration), five peptides and Vitamin E. Formulated to improve skin elasticity and promote collagen production, QuintiSerum targets fine lines, wrinkles and loss of volume to renew a youthful, glowing appearance.
Designed for maximum brightening, this serum contains 10% l-ascorbic acid and 2% hydroquinone to gradually lighten dark spots. Advised for use as a three-month treatment protocol, hydroquinone is the gold standard ingredient among dermatologists for treating severe hyperpigmentation, including melasma.
The ultimate strengthening and volume boosting upgrade, this concentrated serum helps increase firmness, hydration, and luminosity to improve elasticity, skin tone and texture. It contains l-ascorbic acid and polyamine-DAB, an organic amino compound naturally present in our bodies and central to the aging process of the epidermis. Ideal for advanced aging or any skin in a fragile state, it’s also recommended for use after a cosmetic procedure, such as a laser treatment, chemical peel, microdermabrasion or microneedling.
Serum crash course
Once you’ve found the Vitamin C formula that’s right for you, it’s easy to add a serum into your AM skincare routine. Put 2-3 drops into your palms and use fingertips to press the serum into the skin. Think of it as a targeted daily treatment, and always apply your serum to freshly cleansed, dry skin before moisturizer and SPF (in the AM). Don’t forget to extend Vitamin C’s benefits beyond the jawline: apply it to your neck, chest and even the backs of hands, too.
