We all want fresh, dewy and glowing skin. Vitamin C in your beauty routine, just might be the key ingredient to achieving it.
There is nothing more annoying that stubborn, dry, dull looking skin and hyperpigmentation laying deep within the cells.
Whether your pigmentation or dark spots are the cause of forgetting to wear sunscreen, or from previous acne damage, there is one ingredient which keeps popping up in beauty, deeming to be a wonder ingredient to help fix these skin problems, and fast. Vitamin C.
Vitamin C maintains healthy skin by creating and promoting the expansion of collagen in the skin cells, helping to strengthen blood vessels and giving the skin back its elasticity and strength. Making it the ultimate antioxidant for skin.
And when applied topically to skin, it also inhibits specific pigment enzymes in the skin, promising to brighten and boost skins overall complexion.
