Here’s Why You Need a Vitamin C Serum in Your Skincare Routine, Like NOW

There are some non-negotiables when it comes to a skincare routine that WORKS. And antioxidants are one of those non-negotiables–specifically, Vitamin C products.

Vitamin C is a long-studied and proven ingredient, and for that reason, you’ll find almost every skincare expert recommending you incorporate it into your routine. While it’s great on its own, it’s even better paired with your daily SPF to give an added boost of protection against the sun’s rays. 

My lord, I’m sounding very clinical and BORING right now, but Serious Sonni is very much all about keeping you on top of actual Facts that can help you out. So before your head hits the keyboard let’s just dive right into some specific natural vitamin c serums that I have used and loved. You know you’ll never get any product recommendation here that hasn’t been vetted by Yours Truly!

The Best Natural Vitamin C Serums Worth Your Time (and Money)

True Botanicals Vitamin C Booster

Don't choke on your cappuccino... I know $90 is a lot for a skin care product, but this is SO worth it for several reasons. 1) It's a powder, so you can add it to your regular lotion (the one without SPF, preferably) and make your own Vitamin C serum. 2) It's in powder form, which means it's stabilized and will last longer. And 3) It seriously does LAST. Like, for months. And months and months. I've had mine for 6 months and I'm not even at the halfway point. Oh! And 4) It's by a clean beauty brand, so no worries about potentially harmful ingredients!

Honest Beauty Vitamin C Radiance Serum

This one is much more budget friendly at $27.99, and it also has the tiniest, subtlest hint of illumination that makes your skin GLOW. I'm a huge fan of everything Honest Beauty is doing with their skincare, and this one is no different. Solid product, solid price.

Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum

Drunk Elephant. Ugh. I mean, the whole line is PERFECTION. I want it all, all over me, every day. Is that too much? Still not enough to describe my love for this (clean, non-toxic, natural) line. Marry me, DE. I don't even care if there's a prenup.

Real Quick--Here's How to Use It

I feel like you probably know this by now, but just in case you need a refresher, here’s the order of events for Vitamin C:

  • Wash
  • Tone (linked you to my favorite prebiotic spray that I use as a toner)
  • Let your skin dry
  • Apply Vitamin C Serum
  • SPF
  • Makeup (of course, optional)
