Overview

Serums have a lighter feel compared to creams and are better for light moisturizing or oily skin. As the skin ages, a loss in vitamin C occurs. That's why this essential vitamin is used in some serums -- as it is an important ingredient to maintain resilient and youthful skin. As an antioxidant, it's essential that a good serum works to protect and reduce damage to your skin cells, says skin care expert Paula Begoun. Smooth on a vitamin C serum and you may experience these rejuvenating effects for yourself.

Alyria Antioxidant Capsules

Alyria's serum comes packaged in individual capsules. This helps protect the potency of the product, as you're only opening each individual capsule when you need to apply it to your skin. Dr. Arielle Kauvar, a dermatologist writing for "Real Simple" magazine, recommends Alyria's capsules as one of the best ways to prevent aging while moisturizing your skin. Each capsule includes a vitamin C concentrate at a strength of 10 percent, plus other antioxidants like vitamin E.
