There are so many skincare ingredients out there for every skin issue, sometimes you feel like you don’t know what you should be using.

There are retinols, the whole spectrum of vitamins, minerals, a plethora of botanical ingredients each claiming to do more for your skin, and even the more scientific ingredients like peptides, enzymes and acids. Is it even possible or beneficial to use them all?

I believe that you need to research what your skin needs before giving these ingredients a try. But one thing any dermatologist would agree on is that you should use a vitamin C serum.

According to our Derm in the house, Dr Teo Wan Lin, “you should incorporate a stabilised form of vitamin C into your skincare regime.”. When vitamin C is pharmaceutical grade and in a well-made formulation, it delivers antioxidants to your skin, which help to combat the daily onslaught of photo-ageing and biological ageing, keeping your skin looking youthful, radiant and supple.

Here are 7 vitamin C serums we’ve tried and loved.
