Is vitamin C cream good for your face?
Absolutely! This powerful antioxidant is a natural component of healthy skin, so applying Vitamin C topically has many benefits for the skin. In fact, when we’re young the Vitamin C levels in the epidermis and dermis are high, but naturally, deplete over time as we age. Luckily, incorporating the high strengths of this ingredient into your skincare regime can help to even out skin tone, reduce fine lines, and brighten the skin.
Which vitamin C cream is best for the face?
While there’s no one answer for this, Vitamin C face creams and serums in particular offer a host of skin-saving benefits. However, the effectiveness of topical Vitamin C application increases when you use products combined with powerful antioxidants such as Vitamin E as they provide added protection against free-radical damage. If you’re new to using Vitamin C, we recommend taking it slow with the amount that you apply - it’s an incredibly potent ingredient so you don’t need to overdo it.
