The powerful antioxidant offers a host of benefits, such as fading dark spots and acne marks and minimizing dullness, wrinkles, and bumpy texture. As board-certified dermatologist Michelle Henry previously told InStyle, the ingredient effectively slows visible signs of aging by protecting against UV-induced damage from free radicals and speeding up collagen production. One easy way to start using it is with the Versed Skin Found the Light Powder with Vitamin C. The powder can be mixed into your go-to creams, serums, sunscreens, and foundations for a brightening, anti-aging boost whenever your skin needs a glow-up. The unique mixture retains its potency from the very first use, unlike most vitamin C serums, and seamlessly incorporates itself into any product without adding a white cast. That's because it's made with a tapioca starch base, a natural alternative to talc; it's also free of parabens, silicones, and sulfates.

Reviewers say there's no pilling or clumping whatsoever when mixing and claim they've experienced little to no irritation on their sensitive complexions. One person says they even use the powder to lighten darkness on their armpits and thighs. People Love This $22 Gentle Retinol Serum So Much, They're Afraid It Will Get Discontinued "After using this for over a month I can confidently say I've found my new favorite vitamin C," wrote one reviewer. "Other brand's products tend to change color or go bad before I've finished the bottle. This powder version protects the integrity of the formula. The mess-free bottle dispenses just the right amount. I've been using this on weekday mornings and my skin is looking beautiful and brighter." "This is such a cool addition to my skincare," shared another. "What I really love about this is that you get to add it to whatever moisturizer you use. I've noticed my skin is much brighter and overall more of a unified tone. This has become a staple for me."
