WHY WE LOVE VITAMIN C IN SKINCARE & HOW TO USE IT

As a powerful anti-oxidant, Vitamin C neutralizes the free radicals that cause oxidative stress to skin and lead to premature skin aging. It is not a replacement of sunscreen, but is a great weapon in the army of the skin against damage caused by age, sun, pollution and a poor lifestyle. Incorporate a Vitamin C serum in your routine by applying it before your sunscreen for extra protection!


But how to implement Vitamin C in your skincare routine?


1. Choose a serum with between 10 and 20% vitamin C. (For sensitive skin start closer to 5%)

2. Pick your battles: Use in AM for a better protection against sun damage, use in PM for collagen benefits and it’s anti-aging effect. For the best results, use consistently morning and evening.
