Skin School: Vitamin C

Vitamin C is great for boosting collagen and fading dark spots. The perfect anti-ager!

Tips to picking the perfect Vitamin C products

Vitamin C can be a very fickle ingredient. Once it makes contact with oxygen or sunlight the active ingredient basically dies and is no longer effective at boosting your collagen levels or fading those dark spots.

To keep your vitamin c active and protected opt for products that keep the active ingredient safe. Think opaque bottles, technology that only activates the product before you’re about to use it like powders or protective casings or pump applicators that are going to keep the oxygen out.
