Want brighter, tighter, and, overall better-looking skin? There's a skin care ingredient for that: vitamin C! You may associate it with your usual morning cup of OJ, but this ingredient is also one of the best skin care ingredients you can incorporate into your daily regimen. Here's why:
What is Vitamin C, and what does it do?
Vitamin C is actually a naturally occurring antioxidant located in the dermis and epidermis (a.k.a. the different layers of the skin). Antioxidants like Vitamin C work by eliminating free radicals. In other words, it can help slow down signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles, collagen degradation, and even dark spots and melasma!
Unfortunately, as we age, the vitamin C content in our skin decreases too. This is why it’s important to incorporate a vitamin C serum into your routine to combat this natural reduction!
