If there's one ingredient you need to make sure is in your clean beauty routine no matter what, it's vitamin C. This anti-ageing superstar can actually benefit all skin types by rejuvenating our skin as well as protecting it from further damage. That's why it's become an absolute staple and daily must-have in our organic skin care routine.
Here's the skin-loving vitamin C enriched facial serums we've been loving in 2021.
Vitamin C Skin Benefits
In clean beauty, vitamin C is known as a powerful brightening and anti-ageing ingredient – able to both help correct existing damage on mature skin types and prevent premature ageing. With its rich concentration of antioxidants, vitamin C is known for its ability to help target signs of ageing and environmental damage such as hyperpigmentation, sun spots and uneven skin tone by reducing their appearance and stimulating skin cell renewal.
