Antioxidant and Brightening Serums

One of the most common skin care complaints is pigmentation, especially for mature and aging skin. Pigmentation can appear in many forms from brown, age spots to redness and sallow skin. One of the best ways to tackle pigmentation is to use targeted treatments with high concentrations of active ingredients. While your daily moisturiser and cleanser can help to slowly fade pigmentation and retain hydration, using high potency serums are the best ways to deliver fast and dramatic results to your complexion.

 

Brightening serums will help to minimise the appearance of pigmentation and balance your skin tone for a more even colouring. Brightening serums are also often packed full of antioxidants. This is because pigmentation is mainly caused by external aggressors such as free radical and sun damage so the best way to prevent pigmentation from forming in the first place is to protect your skin with antioxidants.

 

The Ordinary have a large selection of high-performance serums which can be used to protect skin against free radicals and brighten the complexion. The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% is one of the most effective for tackling pigmentation. Vitamin C itself is not only a highly effective antioxidant to protect the skin from damage but is a natural skin brightener. The water-free, silicone-free stable formula is boosted with spheres of hyaluronic acid which ensure that skin isn’t left feeling dehydrated after application.

 

Another popular vitamin C product is the Skinstitut Vitamin C 100%. This pure form L-Ascorbic Acid is a lightweight powder which should be blended into other Skinstitut treatment products to enhance their results and brighten the skin. The Ordinary also offer their 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder which works in the same way.

Judging by Ari’s most recent haircut she shared on Instagram, it seems the chart-topping artist might be saying thank u, next to her signature pony (but her tweets tell me otherwise).   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) on Dec 5, 2018 at 11:54am PST What’s So Bad […]

There have been rumours swirling around our office that Vita Liberata could be one of the best tanning ranges we’ve ever tried – and that’s a big call coming from a group of beauty junkies. But even with that in mind, when I picked up the Ten Minute Tan, the sceptic in me had some […]
