Vitamin C is crowned one of the most sought-after ingredients in skincare, and not without reason—from endowing your skin with a healthy-looking glow and diminishing signs of ageing to depigmenting the skin and fading scars, this vitamin boasts a slew of benefits. It is available in multiple vehicles—it’s condensed into day-time and night-time creams, face-washes, serums, oils, and many more products to enhance their efficacy, and enable them to deliver on their propositions. And because building an entire routine around Vitamin C isn’t as simple as it sounds, we’re building you one instead. Ahead—some of our cult-favourites.
Vitamin C is so ubiquitous these days—it refines your standard peel-off mask too. This mask is an assortment of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and hyaluronic acid, and it excels at brightening and detoxifying the skin, undoing sun-induced damage, diminishing the appearance of spots and hyperpigmentation, and boosting the luminosity of your face. The question is—what does it not do? This one reminds me of the first-bencher from school who had an answer to almost every one of our professors’ questions—just that it isn’t the hair-tearing kind of annoying anymore.
While some body-oils might remind you of a friend who’s almost always stuck to you, this one’s the opposite. You glow when you’re around this friend because they’re so wholesome. A face-cum-body-oil, this formula is just like that. It boosts the strength of the skin’s natural barrier, and prevents environmental aggressors from causing any damage to the body. It minimses blemishes, brightens, hydrates, moisturises, and reduces signs of premature ageing. Now—you know that claims that associate all oils with stickiness and discomfort are unfounded. You can conclude your skincare with a few pumps of this oil, and use it in conjunction with a 5-minute face-massage.
While most sunscreens deliver on what their name suggests, this one goes beyond—much beyond. This sunscreen reminds me of a guy who does everything in his power to woo you. Think about it—it offers the highest levels of protection against sun-induced damage courtesy of a sun-protection factor of 75. Apart from ‘sun-screening’, it boasts a slew of benefits for the skin. It is infused with the richness of Vitamin C, Retinol, Shea Butter, and extracts of cucumber—from moisturising to anti-ageing, it has an expertise in everything. Conversations would just flow. I’d go on another date. How about you?
Stable—yes. Thanks to Ascorbic Acid. It’s recognised as the most stable and effective form of Vitamin C in skincare. This serum is a cult-favourite because it employs just that in its formulation—and who doesn’t like stability in any relationship? While it speaks the praises of Vitamin C by depigmenting the skin, fading spots, diminishing wrinkles and lines, and inducing a natural-looking glow on the face, it attests to the ultra-hydrating and ultra-nourishing abilities of Vitamin E and Hyaluronic Acid. This one’s ready for commitment, and nothing beats that.
Add this to your A.M routine now. This day-cream is luscious and thick, and it feels amazing against the skin. It penetrates your skin seamlessly, and dispatches cocktails of anti-ageing, radiance-reinstating properties to every layer—and this isn’t just Vitamin C’s doing. This feel-good elixir is packed with skin-loving ingredients like Vitamin E, Pro-Vitamin B5, Vitamin B3, Moroccan Argan Oil, Avocado Oil, and Pomegranate that bolster the efficiency of Vitamin C. Really—you cannot stay away. I have tried.
Add this to your P.M routine. We promise it’s all innocent. This night-time cream slides into your regimen effortlessly, and does exactly what its day-time counter-part does—but in a more restorative and rejuvenating manner. This one contains the moisture-dripping Hyaluronic Acid that delivers pumps of hydration to your skin throughout the night—never giving up on undoing the damage, and making you feel wanted.
You know how you cannot start your day without receiving a text from your person? This is that. This brightness-inducing face-wash wakes you up almost instantly. It’s crafted with the goodness of Vitamin C—from restoring the pH of your skin to stimulating the production of collagen, it dabbles in a lot of hobbies apart from cleansing the face thoroughly. This is your chance to find out more.
