What To Know About Vitamin C Skincare And The Ones To Buy

Vitamin C is one of the most popular ingredients to achieve radiant and clear skin. Known for its brightening effects, it reduces the production of melanin to lighten acne scars and dark spots. It also has exfoliating benefits to help remove dead skin cells so your skin will feel softer and smoother and can better absorb the rest of your skincare. One thing to note, it is always important to store your vitamin C products in a cool, shaded area (placing it in the refrigerator is recommended as well) to prevent it from getting oxidised, which can cause the product to lose its beneficial effects and may even irritate your skin.

Here, we have picked these Vitamin C products to help you get started.
