In summer, when the sun is shining, we need to prioritise Vitamin C in our skincare. It will help even skin tone and get rid of those sunspots.
Did you know that we don't make Vitamin C naturally in our bodies? That's why it's so important to get it wherever we can. You will get most of your Vitamin C from your food intake and you can take a Vitamin C supplement. However, it's important to apply it topically to your skin as well - especially during the summer months.
Vitamin C is really beneficial to your skin right now. During this heat wave, your skin is being beaten by the harmful rays of the sun all the time. If you are prone to pigmentation you will probably find that it is rife in summer. Vitamin C is able to help control the formation of pigmentation. That's the first reason we should be slathering our skin in this wonder ingredient right now.
The other reason is that it provides natural sun protection. Now, this does not, I repeat, does not mean you can use it instead of wearing SPF. It just means that it will boost your skin's natural tolerance to the sun. Right now we need all the protection we can get so every little helps. I like to apply my Vitamin C serum every morning before my moisturiser.
These are three good ones.
Do you incorporate Vitamins into your skincare as well as your diet?
