(VITAMIN) C FOR YOURSELF
You may already turn to vitamin C to fight a cold or wake you up in the morning. But did you know it can also help protect your skin from pollutants and other stressors and reduce the signs of aging? That’s why Vichy Laboratories included 15 percent pure vitamin C from ascorbic acid as the star ingredient in its new LiftActiv Vitamin C Brightening Skin Corrector ($28.50). It’s combined with other ingredients, including natural-origin hyaluronic acid, which hydrates and plumps skin, and the company’s proprietary mineralizing thermal water, which also helps protect the skin from the effects of fatigue, pollutants and other stressors. Apply in the morning before your moisturizer and SPF to help brighten, firm and smooth your skin. Pick up the new serum at local Target stores or at Ulta at the Bell Tower Shops in Fort Myers (239-334-0659; ulta.com), Coconut Point in Estero (239-992-0361) and Coralwood Center in Cape Coral (239-458-3522).
