Double down on free radical protection with these vitamin C heroes


Radian-C Advanced Effector, $65, LANEIGE

Dull and pigmented skin will benefit from this lotion that is super-charged with a vitamin C-rich berry complex and other vitamin C derivative­s. Niacinamid­e also helps to keep new discolorat­ion from appearing and repairs damage to the skin barrier to prevent moisture loss.

Vitamin C Lactic 15% Vitamin C Firm & Bright Serum, $130, Dr Dennis Gross Mature skin with other concerns such as uneven skin tone, sagging, dullness and wrinkles will get a boost from the combo of skin-brightenin­g 15 percent L-ascorbic acid and skin-smoothing lactic acid.

If pigmentati­on is your concern, this gel cream evens out skin tone with THD Ascorbate, said to be more stable and less irritating than other forms of vitamin C, and contains lutein which protects against blue light. Sodium hyaluronat­e helps skin retain moisture for up to 24 hours.

Vitamin Brightenin­g Serum, $43, THEFACESHO­P Suited to drier skins, this serum’s low-molecular weight hyaluronic acid penetrates skin better for deeper hydration. It also contains the brand’s Vital Vita Solution—a mix of ascorbyl glucoside and niacinamid­e—to brighten skin and protect against free radical damage.

C-Firma Fresh Day Serum, $112, Drunk Elephant

The C-Firma Fresh Day Serum comes as a separate serum and powder that is meant to be mixed before the first use so as to preserve the potency of its ingredient­s, particular­ly vitamin C which is known to degrade quickly. An antioxidan­t complex of 15 percent L-ascorbic acid, 0.5 percent ferulic acid and one percent vitamin E retexturis­es and plumps skin, soothes redness and improves radiance.
