6 Vitamin C Products to Get that Red Carpet Glow – Preen – Inquirer.net
When you’re walking on a red carpet with hundreds of cameras capturing your every move, your skin needs to look glowy. That’s what New York-based facialist Georgia Louise believes, specifically with major events like the Met Gala. Her suggestion to getting red carpet-ready skin? Vitamin C peels and treatments.
This nutrient has antioxidant properties and protects skin from radicals caused by sun exposure. It’s also a key component in collagen production which helps heal damaged tissue and skin discoloration. You’re then left with radiant skin similar to Amy Schumer and Emma Stone. (Ah, the dream.)
We’re all for improving our skincare routine. So here’s our list of Vitamin C-infused products to add to your existing regimen.
