Welcome to the final installment in my five-part series about vitamin C skin care products. Today we're talking about cleansers. Facial cleansers that contain high concentrations of vitamin C are jam-packed with antioxidants that help fight signs of aging. They also leave skin looking refreshed, calm and brilliant. Here are three of my top picks.
N.V. Perricone M.D. Vitamin C Ester Citrus Facial Wash ($30) is a gentle, non-detergent facial cleanser that nourishes, soothes and calms so that you don't wind up with red, blotchy, or uneven-looking skin.
For two more vitamin C facial cleansers,
Jason Natural Gentle Facial Wash ($9.59) is formulated with vitamin C, ester-C, and beta-hydroxy acids to help firm, tighten and tone your skin. This rich cleanser is safe for everyday use and will help to rid your skin of excess oils—yet it won't leave it feeling dry and flaky.
Paula Dorf Vitamin C + Chamomile Foaming Cleanser ($30) is a gentle balancing cleanser that leaves skin looking radiant and bright and feeling calm and soothed. It is gentle enough for everyday use, but strong enough to remove makeup and impurities.
