Vitamin C Must-Haves To Brighten Your Skin

For dull and lifeless skin that’s in need of a radiance boost, there’s nothing better than a dose of vitamin C. This powerful antioxidant is dubbed the skin brightening hero as it works wonders for giving your complexion it’s glow back.

What other skincare benefits does vitamin C offer? Well, it can help to ease pigmentation and dark spots, and boost your collagen production over time. As a result, you can expect smoother, firmer skin in the long run. While you can use vitamin C as part of your day and evening routine, don’t forget to apply SPF before you go out in the sun.
