DERMATOLOGISTS agree: Topical Vitamin C has a beneficial effect on skin. It can prevent sun damage and improve the appearance of fine and deeper wrinkles and dark spots. The problem is that the formula of many brands degrades over time. Drunk Elephant to the rescue with C-Firma™ Fresh Day Serum ($78, Sephora). You mix and shake before your first use, ensuring the combo of 15% ascorbic acid, .5% ferulic acid and 1% vitamin E stays fresh and does its job of making your complexion look brighter and more even. While you’re roaming around Sephora and/or Ulta looking for last-minute gifts, save this one for you.
