You are now probably wondering, what are the best Vitamin C Serum brands out there? There are too many brands in competition and choices to pick from once you hit the shops – all with great reviews, all are best-sellers, all seem to have the “it” factor; but here’s the deal: Not all of them have the same contents – and that is something we have to be particular in. We don’t always get to read the labels and nutritional facts or ingredients of the products we get – which isn’t always good as we might miss out.

Today, I will give an advice on what your Vitamin C Serum should contain for sure results of healthy and radiant skin.

Find these ingredients to be sure your skin gets the vitamins it needs!


1. Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is already famous in the cosmetic industry. Aloe Vera has antibacterial properties, getting rid of skin-related problems like acne, pimples, dryness, blemishes, etc. It helps in moisturizing your skin, keeping it hydrated, rejuvenated and glowing, so it works best for oily skin. Aloe Vera also has anti-ageing properties. It helps in keeping wrinkles and age spots at bay. It also contributes in healing scars and burns.


2. Dandelion Extract
Yes, it’s the flower. Dandelion is a very good herb for improving skin complexion. It’s a very effective herb for treating acne. It’s a good detoxifier and a strong source of anti-oxidants. Dandelion extract and dandelion root tea both are good remedies for acne. For short, Dandelion extracts are a very good herb in cleansing the skin.


3. Jojoba Oil
Pronounced “ho-ho-ba,”, this oil works well on as a basic moisturizer for those with normal to dry skin. Studies have documented that jojoba improves the feel of skin, and provides a substantial long-acting, 24-hour skin hydration effect. One big bonus is that it contains almost all of the vitamins and minerals essential for healthy skin and hair: vitamin E, B-complex, copper, zinc, selenium, iodine, and chromium.


All in all, put together with other active ingredients, they go hand in hand with Vitamin C, creating a wonderful and astonishing effect working on the skin. Supplements claim to have lots of nutritional benefits in it, but these three ingredients are guaranteed to  give promising results. I know it takes trial and error to look for the product that fits you, but with this guide – you can’t tell that you’re lost. So, you’ve been told.

There you go.
