Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps to brighten dark spots, smooth fine lines and scavenge free radicals from the environment, pollution and UV radiation. The benefits of incorporating Vitamin C into your skin care routine include: its assistance with collagen formation when applied topically, its ability to shield the skin from aging and damage caused by pollution, it inhibits melanin production which can cause dark sports, it helps to correct uneven skin tone, and can even promote skin repair and healing. The overall effectiveness of Vitamin C is heightened when used in conjunction with other ingredients, like Vitamin E. The greatest benefit is thought to come by using Vitamin C in the morning in the form of a serum or day cream.
