Racked's own Rea Frey assesses the toxins of the universe, heads down top The Loop & finds a juicy vita-fresh solution...
We all know the importance of getting our vitamins. One of the most powerful ones around, vitamin C can help boost immunity and pump you full of antioxidants (and you don’t have to ingest a hundred oranges or strawberries to reap the benefits). But can it do the same for your face?
“Absolutely,” says Tara Leggero, aesthetician at Spa Space. “A perfect jumpstart for summer, the Vitamin C Facial not only rids you of dead winter skin, it also gives a dose of antioxidant protection from the sun’s harmful rays.”
For a cool $105, you can achieve clean, vibrant skin with this firming, brightening, hydrating, and calming Vitamin C Facial. Best part? Racked readers receive a complimentary glycolic peel when they choose to go for the Vitamin C Facial! “The combination is fantastic because the peel exfoliates the skin giving a smoother complexion on its own, which allows the vitamin C mask to penetrate into the skin even further,” Leggero says. Now that’s a vitamin worth taking.
