Shop 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. 


If you’re wondering how to get rid of pigmentation, 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.

 

Our best 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.


Our favourite low budget Vitamin C 

 

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 a skin brightening serum effective for tackling pigmentation. 


So, why should I use a Vitamin C serum? Well, 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.

 

Our favourite mid-range Vitamin C 

 

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. 


Our favourite luxe Vitamin C 


The brightening serum Vitamin C fans love is the SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic Serum. This topical vitamin not only reduces dark spots and uneven skin tone, it also improves collagen production.

Brightens complexion

I bought this to help with rosacea, while it hasn't specifically helped with any redness, my overall complexion is definitely brighter and more hydrated the next day after using. I add a couple of drops into my moisturiser at night, it does stain clothes though!

My go-to vitamin C serum

I am a fan of vitamin C! I've always been on the hunt for products that don't excaserbate my redness and his serum as I am fair skinned and prone to sensitivity. This serum falls into my love category. It hydrates (visibly and I can feel it) and gives a nice glow. I've even purchased for my mum!
I use it in the morning and love the feel it gives for a fresh, hydrated face for the day.
