As someone who suffers from acne and hyperpigmentation incorporating vitamin c into my daily routine has been a game-changer. 

What is Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an antioxidant which neutralises free radical (free radicals are unstable molecules that damage our cells), derived from pollution and UV rays. Not only does vitamin c combat free radicals it can also help repair the damage. Some more reasons to love vitamin c:

  • Fades dark spots
  • Evens skin tone
  • Brightens complexion 
  • Improves texture and fine lines

Intense defense with vitamin c

Last year I came across Avalon Organics intense defense moisturiser with vitamin c and I’ve been obsessed since. This lightweight moisturiser has prevented severe breakouts, along with improving my complexion and fading acne scars. Although it does have a strong smell of orange which can take some getting used to, it really is a great product. I recommend using the moisturiser in the morning to shield your skin from free radicals, pair it with your fave sunscreen and you’re good to go.

Avalon Organics is a cruelty-free and vegan brand.
