Vitamin C In Skin Care
Not certain what Adele’s skin care routine is, but we hope that as National Vitamin C Day approaches this April 4th, she’s at least using this powerful antioxidant to keep her skin radiant, and with that let’s dive right into Orogold, Murad, and m-61 – three brands that have put this ingredient to great use.
What Is It?
Vitamin C is an effective and powerful antioxidant used in the treatment of age spots and discoloration, protects against UV damage and helps to heal wounds.
Not For The Budget-Conscious
When genuine gold finds its way into your skin care products you get something really special – Orogold 24K Vitamin C Booster Facial Serum ($198, orogold.com). As you apply this serum, you’ll notice that it’s flecked with gold pieces, so your skin is instantly illuminated with a warm glow as the Vitamin C penetrates deep into your skin to heal and brighten from within.
Murad Intensive-C Radiance Peel ($49.50, murad.com) is a new advanced formula that delivers a radiant glow just after the first treatment. It contains Glycolic Acid, which helps brighten because it exfoliates dark and damaged cells, while also improving texture and removing dullness. The ingredient Myrtle Extract helps improve skin elasticity, and Vitamin C and Indian Fig protect against free radical damage while enhancing skin clarity and luminosity.
A product that goes out of it’s way to get you treated in a flash is the m-61 fast Blast 2-Minute Vitamin C Facial Mask ($50, m61labs.com) – developed with a hefty focus on technical science and power-packed naturals. This gluten-free, facial mask is the ultra-quick solution to skin-brightening and exfoliating at home. It also contains Vitamin to gently hydrate along with firming seaweed, soothing aloe vera, and antioxidant Vitamin E and is great for all skin types.
