My skin-care routine has been a journey, to say the least; bouts of acne and dullness have made me vigilant about the products I use on my face, and I'm only getting more discerning. If I'm going to use a product, I want it to work. My morning routine has become quite simple; I wash my face, use a toner sometimes, then a serum, and a moisturizer. That's pretty much it, with a face mask thrown in a couple of times a week. In the morning, I love using a vitamin C serum because it dramatically brightens up my complexion. I've tried what feels like every option on the market, and my favorite is the Summer Fridays CC Me Vitamin C Serum ($64).
I wake up in the morning and my skin is glowing like I cannot believe.
Of all the possible options, why this one? Well, it's the only serum I've tried where I see results overnight. I wake up in the morning and my skin is glowing like I cannot believe. Plus, it doesn't have a weird smell, and it doesn't dry out my skin, make it overly oily, or make me break out. It comes in a great little bottle that's easy to travel with, too. The brand is known for its travel-friendly, adorable packaging, and this is no exception.
Perhaps my favorite thing about the Summer Fridays serum is that it doesn't oxidize. Has your vitamin C serum ever turned brown or started to smell differently? If it has, you're not alone; that's the vitamin C oxidizing. It essentially means that the ingredient is no longer active, and is a relatively common issue, but it's not fun to spend lots of money on a serum only for it to go bad quickly. This bottle lasted me months without oxidizing, which means the ingredients are potent and packaged properly. Here's to Summer Fridays' latest launch, and my glowing skin.
