Want to keep your skin’s summer glow going strong well into the fall and winter? It’s possible—and easier than you might think. As the days get shorter and you spend less time in the sun, your summer glow can slowly fade. There are a few simple steps you can take to keep your complexion radiant, even-toned, and clear. No matter the time of year. And you can do it using natural ingredients. No harsh treatments needed. Let’s get started on what you need for bright, clear skin once fall sets in.
Turn Up the Volume on Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient found in a vast number of fruits and veggies, like citrus and leafy greens. It’s essential to overall health—including skin health. It’s necessary for vibrant, clear skin. Of course, while you can benefit from vitamin C in your diet, you can also benefit from the vitamin topically. In other words, it’s time to add skincare products that feature vitamin C into your rotation!
If a luminous, even-toned complexion is a top concern going into the fall, there are products for every part of your daily routine. Look for vitamin C and other brightening ingredients in everything from your cleansers, serums, toners, day and night creams and moisturizers, and exfoliating masks.
There may be other products you feel your skin needs. You can easily find products that contain vitamin C, which may be listed as magnesium ascorbyl phosphate. By itself, vitamin C can be a powerful and effective way to brighten and tone skin. However, when you add naturally brightening fruit botanicals to the mix, you’ll notice even more brightening benefits for your skin.
Let Citrus Be Your Clear Skin Guide
While using products made with vitamin C can be beneficial, products with real fruit-based ingredients can be useful, too. Lemon and orange-based ingredients can contribute to a skin-brightening regimen. In some instances,Citrus fruits like lemon can even be helpful if you’re also working toward clear skin as it can help balance oil production. If you have oily or blemish-prone skin, a product with citrus fruits like lemon can be a worthwhile addition.
Because citrus is naturally high in vitamin C, it can really help to lighten dark spots or help correct an uneven complexion. Products made with citrus-based ingredients along with vitamin C (in magnesium ascorbyl phosphate form) may offer a boost in overall brightening.
Exfoliate with Vitamin C and AHAs
When a skincare product spends more time on your skin, the benefits can be even more effective. Cleansers, for instance, don’t usually spend much time on your face. They’re effective at cleansing, as you’d expect. But when it comes to brightening, their benefits can be limited. This is why it can be advantageous to supplement your brightening cleanser with other brightening products that are meant to stay on your face longer, like masks and exfoliators. Or products meant to be absorbed into the skin, like vitamin C serums and toners.
When it comes to achieving radiant, clear skin, some exfoliators work better than others. Look for chemical exfoliators with ingredients like vitamin C, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) like glycolic acid, and natural fruit enzymes. These ingredients can help remove dry and dead skin cells, leaving behind a smoother skin surface—along with a more brilliant tone. All it takes is about 20 minutes once or twice a week. Use this type of exfoliator with other brightening products and you’ll be well on your way to your goals of more luminous, even-toned, clear skin!
