There is one addition to my skincare routine that has completely changed the texture, appearance, and overall health of my skin: vitamin C. The hero ingredient is rich in antioxidants, helps collagen production, and improves pigmentation. The best part is that it’s such an easy product to incorporate into your routine. I simply apply Medik8 C-Tetra Serum($69) in the morning before moisturizer and SPF. My skin is now more radiant and my stubborn acne scars are finally fading.
I wanted to know more about how vitamin C can benefit everyone, so enlisted the help of Dr Saira Vasdev, co-founder and medical director of Skin and Sanctuary, who has a wealth of knowledge and information to share. So grab a hot beverage and get ready to learn about your new skincare BFF. It’s going to be educational.
What are the benefits of using vitamin C?
“Vitamin C is a super antioxidant which protects the skin from environmental damage and prevents premature skin aging associated with UV rays and pollution. It penetrates deep into the skin’s surface and acts to neutralize free radicals which are toxic to skin cells, as well as stimulating cell renewal and supporting new collagen synthesis.
