VITAMIN C KICK FOR YOUR SKIN
FRUITY POST ALERT!
Yes, you have seen correct :) - this is going to be a post all about VITAMIN C in SKINCARE products. In this post I (Annabell) want to focus on my top 5 Vitamin C skincare products which I use on a daily basis. I’m suffering from pigmentation around my lips and a bit around my eye area. It tends to be more visible when I have exposed my face to the sun light a lot. Like after a short holiday, the lip contour turns quite dark and it almost looks like I just had a cup of yummy hot chocolate and forgot to wipe my mouth ;) ha I wish!
As pigmentation, sun damage as well as scarring is something I’m struggling with - I have been recommended to use Vitamin C products on a daily basis, to help brighten up my complexion. And it did help a lot! :)
Vitamin C is pretty much a wonder ingredient - it’s one of the few proven anti-ageing skincare ingredients which can improve visible signs of sun damage and scarring, and it helps defend skin against environmental stressors caused by free radicals. Not only does Vitamin C help strengthen the skin, but it can also help refine texture! Sounds great - doesn’t it?
First of all pick a good serum as this can have a huge impact on the overall health of your complexion. I have started using the REN RADIANCE PERFECTION SERUM a while ago and I feel that this particular product helped a lot with brightening up my complexion. Read below which other Vitamin C products I’m using on a daily basis!

This a great boosting serum for skin types, it’s designed to energise and even the skin tone. I usually only use it in the morning followed by a moisturiser. This multi-active serum helped me improve my skin texture and gives a lovely glow.

This is my current favourite moisturiser! I’m loving the light weight texture a lot -especially in summer as I find it very cooling and super easy to apply, a little goes a long way and its non greasy.
This cream smells delicious and it brightened my skin a lot and leaves it super soft!
I would recommend it to anyone who wants to brighten up their complexion.
I use this lovely Mary Kay replenishing Vitamin C serum usually when I’m abroad, as it comes in a small container - I find it perfect when travelling.
