We’ve all been taught in school that Vitamin C is good for our health, but in case you didn’t pay enough attention, it actually does wonders for the skin, too! This is why a lot of skincare products today contain this amazing ingredient—usually in the form of “ascorbic acid” or “L-ascorbic acid”—so if you haven’t yet included it in your own beauty regimen, we urge you to do so stat! Vitamin C effectively helps fade pigmentation, which makes it a go-to remedy for dark spots and uneven skin tone caused by acne scars and sun damage. And apart from its brightening properties, the beauty of Vitamin C is that it also stimulates collagen production and protects your skin from free radicals that greatly contribute to premature aging.
To get you a head start, we suggest you kick things off by introducing a Vitamin C serum to your nighttime skin care routine—mix two to three drops with your moisturizer if you have sensitive skin, or apply it directly onto the problematic areas after cleansing and toning if there are no signs of skin irritation. Do this every other day and you’ll be on your way to a more radiant glow! You can also opt to start off with these serums:
