So, let’s start this off by saying this… Vitamin C needs to get the attention it deserves! This ingredient is a total life saver and it’s included in so many products due to the vast amount of benefits it has. Vitamin C is an antioxidant which means it protects the skin cells from being damaged by UV exposure.It also encourages melanin production in the skin, which helps to even out skin tone and enhance skin radiance.
