While it seems like there’s always a new buzzy active ingredient in skincare, there’s one that we always go back to time and time again – Vitamin C otherwise known as ascorbic acid. Often referred to as the gold standard of beauty ingredients due to its high antioxidant content, it boasts a plethora of benefits, including brightening the skin complexion, diminishing dark spots, and boosting collagen production amongst others.
While Vitamin C is best incorporated into your skincare routine with a serum due to its highly concentrated nature, Vitamin C in the form of a moisturiser can offer the same benefits with the added advantage of hydrating the skin. Therefore, if your skin is on the dry or sensitive side, you’ll want to start with that, along with a low concentration such as 8% ascorbic acid, before gradually increasing to as much as your skin can tolerate, but not more than 20% as that will lead to irritation. Below, check out some Vitamin C moisturisers to consider.
