why you should include a Vitamin C serum in your routine today.

How to choose the best vitamin C serum among a plethora of products?

Always check the product label for L-ascorbic acid, which is considered the best kind of topical vitamin C. Look for a product that contains 15-20% L-ascorbic acid as its considered most effective. Also its important to go for an air tight or opaque container as vitamin C breaks down quickly when exposed to light and air. Once opened use it regularly to finish it in due time.
