Team Monde’s Top Vitamin C Serums

The ‘it’ vitamin in skin care

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can protect your face from free radicals. It not only helps to repair the skin from damage caused by environmental aggressors, but it also increases protection against sun damage. Nowadays, you can find Vitamin C in just about every skin care form – our favourite is the serum. Apply with your fingers after toner, and before or in place of moisturiser for more plump, radiant looking skin.

The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone

The Ordinary is known for its fuss free skincare, and this Vitamin C Serum is no different. This water free formula provides 30% pure L-Ascorbic Acid which can only remain completely stable due to the absence of water. With the presence of light silicones, the formulation goes onto the skin smoothly avoiding any short-lived gritty feelings of some other Vitamin C creams. This treatment is ideally applied at bedtime to help reverse multiple signs of skin ageing while brightening the skin.
