Is it for you?
Like retinol and glycolic acid, vitamin C tackles most common visible signs of aging. But it’s best known for is its ability to brighten and even the skin tone and eliminate dark spots caused by acne and sun damage.
And let’s face it, dark spots are the worst. Not only do they tarnish the appearance of healthy, youthful skin, but they can also take weeks (even months) to heal fully. But with regular use of this serum, it will reduce the look of dark spots, hyperpigmentation and discolouration in little time.
