Slowly but surely you put aside the summer care routine and come back to the one that will give extra hydration and shine to the skin. Don’t forget that exposure to the sun and both sea and pool water create a blur which you have to deal with using the right care products. And the ideal is a serum with vitamin C in its composition.
Let’s take the things from the beginning.
What is vitamin C and what does it do for the skin?
Vitamin C is an extremely powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from environmental pollution and the external attacks it receives every day. At the same time, it has an anti-aging effect. It reduces fine lines and wrinkles while repairing sun damage such as freckles and spots. It gives the skin a natural glow as well as uniformity. It reduces inflammation while boosting production by restoring elasticity. As you understand, it is your great ally and all you have to do is to include it in your daily care routine. And the best way is to use a serum with vitamin C in its composition.
Vitamin C and skin type
Normal Skin: It is the first product you use morning and night before sunscreen and night cream.
Oily skin: You choose a formula with a thin and light texture that is easily absorbed without leaving a greasy feeling.
Dry skin: The richer the serum the better. You combine it with a cream that contains hyaluronic acid in its composition in order to offer the skin the maximum percentage of moisture.
Sensitive skin: If you belong to this category, it is good to consult your dermatologist before using a vitamin C serum.
