The Best Vitamin C Serums for Forever-Young Skin

There are many different types of beauty serums, but if we had to pick just one to include in every skin care routine, it would be vitamin C. Vitamin C serums effectively tackle a multitude of skin issues, from aging to sun damage.

Since serums penetrate deep into the skin, they can help supercharge any beauty regimen with a high concentration of active ingredients. Jana Blankenship, founder of organic beauty line Captain Blankenship, says vitamin C serums are especially important because they help firm skin, improve texture and tone, and combat the signs of aging. Elizabeth Jones, advanced instructor for Dermalogica and the International Dermal Institute, adds that vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that brightens and protects from free radical damage.

The Secret to Maximizing Your Sun Protection: Vitamin C

Because vitamin C is so versatile, it’s suitable for use on any skin type. Vitamin C serums come in strengths from as little as 1 percent all the way up to 20 percent. Those with sensitive skin are better off starting low until they build up a tolerance, explains Dr. Eva Simmons-O’Brien, FAAD. She also points out that a serum that mixes vitamins C and E is a good option for reactive skin.

While vitamin C is definitely a hero ingredient, it can also be highly unstable and can easily deactivate before reaching your skin, states Vitabrid C¹²‘s Research Director Jinwoo Kim. In other words, it breaks down quickly and becomes less potent, so we don’t get the major results it’s capable of producing. This is why many vitamin C products are stored in dark bottles or special packaging to prevent oxidization. Furthermore, vitamin C is water soluble, which means it can be tricky for the product to penetrate through the layers of skin that are protected by a lipid layer.

All hope is not lost because the beauty industry has been working to stabilize the notoriously difficult vitamin. Now, there are a lot of fantastic vitamin C products that allow users to enjoy its full benefits. Read on for the best vitamin C serums on the market today.

A government agency tricked the Defense Department into handing over $1.2 million in weapons to fake police

Ferguson Cops

To test just how easy it is for cops to get high-tech military equipment, a government agency asked for more than $1.2 million in weapons by pretending to be a fake law enforcement agency — and got it, according to a report published last week.

The Government Accountability Office, the agency tasked with overseeing government abuse, made up a fictitious agency website and address to ask the Department of Defense for more than a million dollars in military equipment.

They received the equipment, which included night-vision goggles, M-16A2 rifles and pipe bomb equipment, from a military warehouse in less than a week.

“They never did any verification, like visit our ‘location,’ and most of it was by email,” Zina Merritt, director of the GAO’s defense capabilities and management team, told The Marshall Project. “It was like getting stuff off of eBay.”

After receiving the weapons, the GAO recommended more tightly regulating transfer of military equipment and conducting a risk assesment test in order to prevent real-life fraud.

The DoD agreed to better monitor transfer of equipment by physically visiting the location of the agency and conducting a fraud assessment in 2018, according to the report.

But Jim Pasco, executive director of the Fraternal Order of Police, told the Marshall Project that cases of possible fraud should not be used as a knock against the program.

“It suggests only that the U.S. military is one of the world’s largest bureaucracies and as such is going to have some lapses in material control,” he said.

GAO’s investigation into the transfer of military equipment came after public outrage over the equipment carried by Ferguson police during protests over the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in 2014, according to TMP.
