Ask any derm, beauty editor, or industry expert their all-time favorite skin care ingredients, and there’s a solid chance vitamin C dominates the conversation. After all, the classic antioxidant is lauded for evening skin tone, stimulating collagen production, and providing an overall glow. I could write a ten-page love letter to vitamin C at this point, but to be honest, layering vitamin C trips me up more than I’d care to admit.
You see, depending on the form, vitamin C can be super unstable (more on that in a moment), so it’s a very delicate dance to make sure you don’t render it ineffective. And if you’re partial to other skin care heroes (like, say, a hyaluronic acid serum), you may have to choose one adventure to avoid compromising on benefits.
A solution? Try a vitamin C moisturizer! Not only can a hybrid formula help you streamline your beauty routine, but it may be the best option out there for super sensitive skin. Given these perks, it’s no wonder plenty of high-quality options have commanded the market of late—I’ll bet you’ll be besotted with them, too.
