My Favorite Vitamin C Skin Boosters And How To Use Vitamin C In Your Skin Care Routine

The antioxidant properties of vitamin C help fight free radicals and damage caused by UV radiation.

Vitamin C will boost your skin's collagen production to give you firmer, more plump skin and smooth fine lines and wrinkles out.

When added to your daily skin  care routine, vitamin C provides a range of benefits, from evening out your complexion, shielding skin from the visible impacts of pollution, significantly  helping and improving the hydration and leaving your skin looking younger, longer.


When looking for a suitable vitamin C product, finding the right concentration is really important. Also the way that the vitamin C is produced is a key factor in how efficient will work for your skin. 

Vitamin C can break down in UV light and lessens its potency, this is why is best to keep your vitamin C skin care in a dark environment.


Here are my vitamin C skin boosters :

Hylamide C25 is a concentrated Vitamin C serum for smoother, brighter skin. The formula is light, effective and easily absorbed. It can be used twice a day and it targets dullness, uneven tone, uneven texture and fine lines.Vegan, cruelty free, silicon free, oil-free, alcohol-free, silicone-free.
The Ordinary 100% L- Ascorbic Acid Powder is a very fine, anhydrous powder and it has to be mixed with other skin treatments (creams or serums). It provides the most direct exposure of extremely high concentrations of vitamin C topically. You can mix a small amount of powder  with other skin treatments in the palm of your hand and apply to the face, a tingling sensation might occur during the first 1 or 2 weeks of use. It targets the same skin concerns as Hylamide C25 serum.Vegan, cruelty free,oil free, alcohol free, silicon free, water free, gluten-free, nut-free.

 Pixi Vitamin Wakeup Mist with orange blossom, citrus extracts, lavender and arginine. This is a boosting treatment toner that can be used before moisturizer, after makeup, and basically any time of the day when you need to cool, add hydration, refresh and add a protective veil to your skin. Very soothing, leaves skin refreshed and radiant. Cruelty free.

 Holika Holika Honey Sleeping Pack Acerola, this is a sleep in moisturizer mask, rich in honey, vitamins and essences. It has 20% vitamin C and the texture is almost like real honey but less sticky. It makes skin supple and plump overnight. Improves skins vitality and elasticity, gives a natural glow and its highly moisturizing.

Maximum skin absorption of vitamin c occurs at 20 % strength, increasing the concentration beyond this limit  will not provide better results as skin will not be able to create a better absorption and the risk of creating skin irritations might occur.

When using vitamin C concentrated skin care is best to avoid retinol, glicolys, saliclilyc and lactic acid. Go easy on Vitamin C if your skin is sensitive!

  5. Vitamin C is such a holy grail skincare product especially because of its radical-fighting properties. I'm glad you've shared that it's not to be used with retinol. Now I need a Vitamin C serum.
