Elizabeth Arden Skin Illuminating Brightening Day Serum *, (30ml). Vitamin C does a great job in supporting the skin’s natural collagen production. But when it’s combined with niacinamide – a form of vitamin B3 (as in this serum) – it goes one step further. Together, these vitamins bolster the skin’s collagen and elastin to firm and smooth skin over time.
