Why a Celeb Facialist Is Calling This New Product Your Best Anti-Aging Defense

Visiting celebrity facialist and skin care expert Joanna Vargas before a big event is practically a "must-do" in Hollywood. So when she launches a new product, it's time for all of us commoners to make a break to purchase it—even if we don't have a regular rotation on the red carpet.

Up this month: her new Rescue Serum ($150), a nonsticky, concentrated vitamin C product that's both super hydrating and super powerful on the war against everything from excess oil and uneven skin pigmentation to redness and flakiness.

The secret, as Vargas says, is the potent antioxidant of vitamin C, which she considers "your best anti-aging defense." (Bonus: This version is even tolerable for the most sensitive skin types who can't always handle the ingredient, and the formula goes on almost like a watery, soaks-right-in primer under makeup.) 

"Vitamin C is the cornerstone of great, glowing skin. It can technically cure any cell mutation, and frankly, that’s what we all complain about when we look at sun damage!" she says. "It has the power to protect skin against the sun and pollution we face daily and will repair existing damage in the skin."

Consider your skin rescued and ready for the big time...you know, just in case the red carpet calls.
