It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when you walk into a beauty store or even through the cosmetics aisle at your local drugstore. There are endless options of lotions and serums and creams and oils. But one product you should be looking for: vitamin C cream.
When applied to the face, vitamin C cream (also known as ascorbic acid) gives you a concentrated boost of — yup, you guessed it — vitamin C, which is a known antioxidant that helps to resurface the skin. It also has the power to make skin appear more radiant while evening out pigmentation and small scars. Everyone’s skin will react differently to vitamin C cream, but most people will find they can use it safely once per day, either in the morning or at night.
