Officially one of the most googled ingredients of 2020, everyone wants to get the lowdown on Vitamin C. Suitable for almost every skin type, the ingredient is easy to incorporate into your skincare mix and it consistently delivers results.
What is Vitamin C?
Firstly, let's establish exactly what this hero ingredient actually is. The popular choice is a powerful antioxidant that when added into your routine can increase collagen production, promote an even tone and leave your skin healthier. Your skin needs antioxidants for optimum health as they reduce damage caused by free radicals.
What can it do for your skin?
Maybe we should write down what Vitamin C can't do for your skin. There's a reason that it's such a hot ingredient. Vitamin C can help to even your skin tone, brighten your skin, minimise fine lines & wrinkles, protect your skin from damaging elements such as pollutants and it gives you serious glow.
How do I use it in my routine?
We would recommend always reaching for a vitamin C product in the morning for three main reasons. One, it supercharges your skin's protection from the sun when used in conjunction with your go-to SPF. Two, it protects your skin against pollutants thanks to the power of antioxidants. Three, our pick of products containing Vitamin C all helps to leave your skin glowing throughout the day.
Anything I should know?
Vitamin C is notoriously unstable as a skincare ingredient. It can break down easily and no longer provide potent protection for your skin - keep any products with Vitamin C out of direct sunlight and make sure to use them up.
