How Vitamin C Can Refresh Your Skin When Summer is Over

Summer is the season for beach days, long hikes and, sometimes, reckless behavior when it comes to our skin. You should always wearing at least broad-spectrum SPF 15 to help shield skin against the sun’s harmful UV rays no matter what the season. But summer means we’re more likely to have prolonged sun exposure that can lead to skin damage in the form of fine lines and dark spots. Now that the temperatures are starting to cool, let’s look at all the ways Vitamin C can help reduce the visible signs of sun exposure on the skin and reveal afresh and bright looking complexion.


Anti-Aging

Vitamin C is known as one of the most powerful antioxidants for a reason. It helps neutralize free radicals, those pesky molecules that can age our skin. Free radicals break down collagen, the protein that keeps skin appearing bouncy and youthful. Products formulated with Vitamin C can help restore skin youthful-look. Look for products formulated with Vitamin C in an anti-aging skin care regimen to keep your skin looking healthy.


Fade Dark Spots

Dark spots are a common sign of damaged skin. If you’re worried about dark spots, look for a product formulated with Vitamin C. The antioxidant can help brighten your skin for a more even complexion. Use a product like Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector to reduce the appearance of dark spots or try Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Overnight Leave-On Peel as part of your evening skincare regimen to help brighten skin over time.


Brighter Skin

In addition to helping target the appearance of dark spots directly, Vitamin C can help give your skin that much-sought after overall radiance. Use a daily moisturizer formulated with Vitamin C like Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer to help maintain your skin’s glow. With broad spectrum SPF 15, it also can protect against the UVA and UVB rays that cause dark spots in the first place.
