Why Your Skin Needs Vitamin C
Posted on 08 October 2021
- Reverse Damage
Vitamin C stimulates your skin’s production of collagen, so it can even out your skin tone and reduce fine lines. This powerful vitamin is also photoprotective, so it helps your skin fight the harmful effects of UV rays.
- Start Your Routine
A vitamin C cleanser should be the first part of your skincare routine. It prepares your skin to optimally absorb all the other serums and moisturizers that will follow, so be sure to start your routine off right!
- Avoid Irritants
Find a cleanser that is free of perfumes or other ingredients that cause irritation to your skin. Parabens, phthalates and artificial fragrances should be avoided at all costs. Lucky for you, Body Merry’s cleanser doesn’t contain any of these harmful ingredients!
- Consider the Concentration
Cleansers come in a wide range of vitamin C concentrations. An ideal cleanser should have a concentration between 8% and 20%. Be aware, those with sensitive skin may experience irritation with a high-concentration cleanser.
- Make it More Effective
There are some ingredients that will actually enhance the efficacy of your vitamin C cleanser. Vitamin E, ferulic acid, green tea extract and aloe are all great additions that your skin will love.
- Use it Wisely
Use a vitamin C cleanser in the morning and evening as part of a healthy skincare routine. However, if you also use products that contain retinol, do not use the two together. In this case, use your vitamin C cleanser in the morning and retinol products in the evening.
