Vitamin C Products We Can’t Live Without
Let us let you
in on a little secret. It’s called vitamin C, and it’s our favorite skincare ingredient.
Known for its ability to brighten, smooth, firm and revitalize your complexion, it's a beauty-maven must-have. Glowing skin is easy to achieve with endless amounts (and money) of makeup, but to naturally shine, you have to put on
the extra effort behind closed doors. That means using vitamin C products at night, when you wake up, and during your trips to the pampering room.
We first discovered the powerhouse ingredient in Joanna Vargas’ Vitamin C Cleanser
. It’s a gentle face wash that can erase layers of oil, dirt and
makeup. (Yes, it had us at two-for-one.) The natural citrus oils left us with the glowiest, clearest skin we’re ever seen, and after consistent use, it only got better. Then, we stumbled upon this number …
Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Power C x 30 Brightening Sleeping Mask. Pardon our French, but it’s amazeballs.
As you rest your eyes, the treatment moisturizes and brightens your skin. The formula contains camu camu berry — a potent superfruit that has 30 times the vitamin C of an orange — so it can polish even the darkest of complexions. The one downside of this product is the light orange smell. While it’s not bad (only different), it has room for improvement. But once we saw the changes in our skin, we paid no mind. Try it, and we guarantee you’ll see a difference.
Last, but certainly not least, we recommend topping your daily regimen off with a custom vitamin C product to fit your
specific needs. If you live under the sun and need an everyday protecting moisturizer, try Dr. Murad’s Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30. It will simultaneously shield and shine your outer layer. If you work on-camera and are constantly removing and re-applying makeup, pick up a package of Ole Henriksen’s Truth to Go Vitamin C Wipes. Every time you wipe off
debris, you’ll be wiping on
The world’s your oyster. There’s no shortage of vitamin C products at your local beauty counter, so we suggest giving them a go. We've tried, tested and rejected a slew of products in our day, and vitamin C-packed formulas have consistently garnered the most positive dramatic results. When you’re met with clearer, brighter skin, think of us — your trusty beauty gurus.
