Touted as one of the best anti-ageing ingredients on the market, it is the key to maintaining a smooth, even and glowing complexion. 

Using topical treatments is one of the best ways to reap the rewards from the benefits of Vitamin C.

Tell me more about Vitamin C!

Legendary in the skincare world, vitamin c is the holy grail of all things skin related. This incredible antioxidant is an anti-inflammatory nutrient which is known to improve skin texture, skin tone, hydrate and reduce the signs of ageing.

How does it work?

Vitamin c is an ascorbic acid and water-soluble. It plays an important part in keeping skin healthy and has a wide range of benefits for most skin types. Topical use of vitamin c is absorbed on the topmost layer of the skin, allowing it to get to work immediately on smoothing the skin, reducing fine lines and dark spots, and protecting against free radicals. Available in many over-the-counter products, with it being easily absorbed on the skin, it is a seamless nutrient to include into a daily beauty regime. 

What are the benefits?

Adding vitamin c to your daily skincare routine can help brighten your skin and protect against the damage caused by harmful aggressors such as pollution, UV sunlight and smoke. A potent nutrient, it’s anti-ageing, anti-pigmentary and anti-oxidising.

In a nutshell, vitamin c is:

  • Hydrating
  • Brightening
  • Safe for most skin types.
  • Promotes collagen and elastin
  • Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Neutralises free radicals that can cause skin damage


Can I use it?

With its excellent safety profile, Vitamin C is suitable to use on most skin types and can even be used alongside other active ingredients such as retinols and SPF.

It is also known to prevent dullness and restore that dewy glow due to its barrier against free radicals which can impact the skin which benefits everyone.
