Vitamin C in your Skincare?

Vitamin C in your Skincare ?

Ok so many brands are adding Vitamin c in their range or have already got some sort of boosters or creams which have Vitamic C as the main ingredients. Now what does this do to our skin? Does it actually help or benefit when adding to your skincare routine? Ok so let me share some infomation I have learnt and understood. I want to keep it simple and explain in the easiest way. I won't go into the science of it ;)

Vitamin C helps to boost and repair your skin from aging as well as any sun damage. It penetrates into skin deeply and help prevent further skin damage due to pollution and sun rays. It also brightens skin and strengthen your skin elastic. Vitamin c helps to refine lines and wrinkles as well as preventing further lines and wrinkles. It is recommended to apply this before mositering as it is thinner and can penerate into skin better or you can mix in with your chosen moisturiser. Some boosters are a week long with a high % of Vitamin C and others you can use daily into your skincare. All depends on what your prefer using and trying out. Personally I love both ❤ Will be testing and trying out some during the skincare journey.

Here are some that I would recommend and have tried or will give a go to test and see how it works on my skin.
