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.
