Vitamin C

Why should you incorporate a vitamin C serum into your daily skincare routine?



Vitamin C is the most common antioxidant in your skin, but unfortunately humans do not have the enzyme to produce it themselves. Even if your diet is rich in vitamin C, there is no way to know if your skin is reaping the benefits.


Some of the many benefits a Vitamin C serum can provide for your skin include hydration, brightening, promotes collagen production, and wound healing. It also helps in reducing redness, hyperpigmentation, and under eye circles. Vitamin C is safe for almost all skin types.

Vitamin C serum is typically applied once or twice per day. In a general skincare routine, a person should cleanse, tone, apply vitamin C, then moisturize.


When purchasing a vitamin C serum you should ensure that the product is water free and stored in an opaque, airtight container.
