When temperatures drop and sunlight fades, your skin’s spirits can drop as well. So how do you keep it glowing when the sun isn’t? Well, here are a few easy tips!
Vitamin C to the rescue!
Serums, moisturizers, concentrates… there are lots of different products that are rich in Vitamin C! And with good reason: this active ingredient is our best ally for a boost of radiance. Its anti-oxidizing properties help limit inflammation while helping your skin cells resist the free radicals responsible for premature aging. Plus, it helps stimulate the production of collagen, the protein that gives your skin its suppleness and elasticity.
Want to find out if your skincare product contains Vitamin C? Read the label attentively. It could be listed as ascorbic acid, L-ascorbic acid, ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate, sodium ascorbyl phosphate, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate or tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate—which are all forms of Vitamin C.

PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE SUN
Even in winter, when it seems like it’s hidden, the sun is radiating, and its rays are just as harmful for your skin. In fact, exposure to the sun is the primary reason for premature aging of the skin. That's why applying sunscreen is a vital step in your morning skincare routine.
Choose a sunscreen that:
- Suits your skin type;
- Protects against UVA and UVB rays;
- Has a solar protection factor (SPF) of at least 30.
