About Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an old-time favourite for those looking to boost their immune system, but this ingredient can do plenty more than fight off colds.
The beauty of vitamin C formulations is that they’re easily absorbed, and their antioxidant properties can make your skin appear brighter. This means if your skin is feeling dull and tired, vitamin C can boost your glow factor.
It works through the acidic content of vitamin C. It helps to lift away dead cells whilst simultaneously increasing new cell production. Its anti-inflammatory properties can also help to control blemish-prone skin, to effectively even-out complexions. It further accelerates collagen and elastin production, which is what’s needed for supple, plumped-out, healthier-looking skin.
Vitamin C is often used in combination with retinol and hyaluronic acid to tackle hydration levels, wrinkles, and skin tone. The other benefit of vitamin C is that it’s suitable for, and reassuringly safe, for most skin types, and it can be used AM or PM. Used in the morning, it can protect against environmental stressors, and at night it can undo oxidative damage. You can find vitamin C in serums, gels, and creams, or even powders to give you revived, brighter skin.
