Say goodbye to fine lines and dull skin with a vitamin your skin loves—vitamin C. There’s a reason it is so popular in skincare, between its firming, brightening, and antioxidizing benefits. As Laura Cline, Youth To The People’s Director of Education, asks, “What doesn’t it do?”
Whatever your skincare goals, there are a plethora of active ingredients to be on the lookout for when putting a routine together. And you might be wondering how long you’ll have to wait before seeing visible results.
For most of us, a winter complexion equals a lackluster one, so you’ll want to seek out ingredients with brightening effects as you work towards replenishing your shelves with a new hero product, or perhaps entirely overhauling your routine. Formulations that include vitamin C and exfoliating acids—lactic and glycolic acid are your best bets here—effectively wipe away winter dullness to leave your complexion sparkling.
