Let me raise a toast, to the skincare ingredient we love the most — Vitamin C! Yes, this champion ingredient, also known as ascorbic acid, is an antioxidant powerhouse. For people wanting to heal hyperpigmentation and dark spots, Vitamin C works like magic. It protects your skin from free radical damage caused by exposure to UV rays, while also increasing collagen production in your skin. It also works to smoothen and firm up skin and make your face look visibly radiant and youthful.
And if revelling in the benefits of Vitamin C sounds like a good idea, then let us help you with our specially curated list of the best Vitamin C products you can get your hands on right now.
- 1. Lakmé Blush & Glow Kiwi Crush Gel Face Wash
- 2. Lakmé 9 to 5 Vitamin C+ Face Serum
- 3. St. Ives Radiant Skin Pink Lemon & Mandarin Orange Scrub
- 4. Ponds Brightening Sheet Mask With Vitamin C And 100% Natural Pineapple
1. Lakmé Blush & Glow Kiwi Crush Gel Face Wash
This one is ideal for beginners who are looking to add vitamin C products to their skincare routine. The Lakmé Blush & Glow Kiwi Crush Gel Face Wash is loaded with the goodness of kiwi, which has a high concentration of Vitamin c, antioxidants and potassium that come together to fight dull and dry skin woes. This is a 2-in-1 fruit, fragrant face wash infused with gentle beads that will lift off all dirt and impurities to give you refreshed and radiant skin.
2. Lakmé 9 to 5 Vitamin C+ Face Serum
The Lakmé 9 to 5 Vitamin C+ Face Serum is indulgence packed in a bottle. We recommend including this in your morning skincare routine, right after you cleanse your face. What we love about this serum is its lightweight and non-greasy formula, and comes enriched with Kakadu Plum — the world’s richest source of Vitamin C. It effectively deals with skin issues like sun damage, dullness and premature ageing and pigmentation. Regular use of this Vitamin C serum will improve the texture of your skin and make it look smoother and plump.
3. St. Ives Radiant Skin Pink Lemon & Mandarin Orange Scrub
If you’ve been skipping on using scrubs then you should totally add one to your skincare stash RN. While a cleanser removes surface-level toxins and dirt, a scrub gets rid of dead skin cells and pore clogging impurities. We recommend St. Ives Radiant Skin Pink Lemon & Mandarin Orange Scrub. Packed with active sources of Vitamin C such as orange, mandarin and pink lemon, this scrub deeply exfoliates your skin and leaves it smooth and glowing.
4. Ponds Brightening Sheet Mask With Vitamin C And 100% Natural Pineapple
Who wouldn’t want to soak in the incredible benefits of Vitamin C by just tearing a sheet mask and leaving it on the face for just 15 minutes? Well, we’d love to. Aimed to give you a glowing, refreshed skin, the Pond’s Brightening Sheet Mask With Vitamin C And 100% Natural Pineapple makes for a great indulgence on weekends or after work hours. Free of parabens and alcohol, this sheet mask is fully soaked in serum and pure pineapple extracts (a great source of Vitamin C). Pineapple is anti-inflammatory, which means it will soothe any kind of irritation and inflammation on the skin. Plus, it’ll instantly brighten your complexion too. We love!
