As autumn grows nearer, it also ushers in a familiar challenge: the dreaded effects of humidity on our hair, forever known as frizz. With each gust of wind, the risk of frizz looms, literally over our heads, threatening our carefully curated, often not cheap to achieve, hairstyles. And yet, it can seem like there have never been more anti-frizz serums on the market, thus proving we are still on the lookout for "the better one".

Thankfully, gone are the days when brass tones, dry, bleached ends, breakage, and hair loss go hand in hand with being a salon blonde. No need to fret about blonde hair care now; other than, that is, which shade you'd like to pick. The best part? It's as easy as swapping one shampoo for the other, using one hair treatment in place of another. And, for a beauty junkie who likes to try different makeup products, skincare, and hair care products, that presents itself as a pleasure, not an obligation.

Vitamin C is a well-established, powerhouse nutrient in skincare products, offering numerous anti aging benefits, including fighting oxidative stress, promoting collagen synthesis, boosting glow, and fading discolorations. Because vitamin C is a key player in collagen production, it can help improve skin elasticity and firmness, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and even work to prevent stretch marks. And that's not all — vitamin C can also help protect our skin against sun damage and environmental stressors, leading to a brighter, more even complexion. Vitamin C can work wonders for a variety of skin concerns, including hyperpigmentation, dullness, and uneven texture. By promoting collagen synthesis and inhibiting melanin production, it reduces the appearance of dark spots and brightens the complexion. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that can soothe irritated skin and reduce redness.
