Topical vitamin C has been deemed a favorite among top dermatologists, estheticians, and skincare formulators alike. This shining star hero ingredient helps slow early skin aging, brightens skin, prevents sun damage, and improves the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, and acne.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that fights harmful free radicals. Oxidative stress triggers certain cellular events leading to collagen breakdown. This produces a number of mediators that contribute to inflammation and skin ageing which can damage skin over time. Implementing Vitamin C into your skincare regimen can combat free radicals to keep a smooth, glowing, and even complexion.
