Vitamin C-Web Banner

 

You are probably getting Vitamin C in your diet, but what about in your skincare routine? Vitamin C is known for antioxidants, and yes, it works as an antioxidant on your skin.

 

This super ingredient helps maintain a smooth and bright complexion, promotes collagen production to lessen fine lines and wrinkles, lightens dark spots, and encourages healthy skin cell turnover. It works the best when you pair it with sunscreen in the AM routine, and after cleansing in the PM routine to address your skin’s needs. Here are some of my recommendations and tips on how to incorporate vitamin C in your skincare regimen.

 

Try a Vitamin C Serum-

 

If you want to see a faster result, use CeraVe Skin Renewing Vitamin C Serum in your AM routine after cleansing.

 

  • Visibly brightens while helping to restore the protective skin barrier. This lightweight serum spreads nicely onto your skin and pairs perfectly with sunscreen.
 
  • Potent L-Absorbic acid (the purest form of Vitamin C) helps to brighten and even skin tone.  Its antioxidant benefits defend against free radical damage.  
 
  • Apply it after your toner and follow with sunscreen.  If you prefer using the serum at night, just apply after you cleanse.

 

Try a Vitamin C Moisturizer-

 

If you want to focus on dark spots and wrinkles, add Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Retinol + Vitamin C Correcting Cream to your nighttime skincare routine.

 

  • This daily paraben-free brightening cream is clinically proven to help reduce the look of  stubborn dark spots and skin discoloration while smoothing the look of fine lines and  deep wrinkles.
 
  • The combo of retinol and vitamin C works hard to diffuse dark spots and signs of aging.
 
  • Apply the cream nightly after cleansing by smoothing over your face and neck evenly in gentle massaging strokes until it’s fully absorbed.

 

Consistency is key to maximizing the effect of vitamin C. Start with 1 vitamin C product in either your morning or night skincare routine depending on which works best for you. It will do wonders and give your skin a glowy complexion.
