Vitamin C is one of my must-have’s for every home care routine. It is one of the most powerful antioxidants to protect the skin from environmental aggressors. Overtime, environmental aggressors can accelerate the breakdown of collagen and elastin which create the structure of the skin. I also love Vitamin C for its brightening properties making it a go-to for assisting in fading acne scars and reviving dull, sun damaged skin.
I suggest it be used regularly, during your daytime routine. It can be found alone or in combination with other antioxidants. One thing to note when purchasing is vitamin C, like all antioxidants, is vulnerable to damage when regularly exposed to light and air, so avoid jars and choose formulations packaged in opaque, airtight containers.
