How Vitamin C Helps Your Skin

How Vitamin C Helps Your Skin

Vitamin C should be considered an essential step in your skincare routine for giving your skin a brightening boost whilst protecting, repairing and enhancing the skin too.


One of the most effective ways to apply Vitamin C to the skin is through a serum. This should be applied to clean, cleansed skin before your moisturiser. A serum is a potent, concentrated formula.


What are the main benefits of Vitamin C?


Adding some Vitamin C into your skincare routine can help to brighten, protect repair and enhance the skin. It also holds anti-ageing benefits, protects the skins collagen, reduces hyperpigmentation and creates a more even skintone. 


Top Tip: Vitamin C can increase your chances of sun damage, meaning it is even more important to apply SPF throughout the day when you are using Vitamin C in your skincare routine. But of course, you should be doing this anyway!


If you have started noticing an uneven skin tone, Vitamin C could be the answer for you! Don't forget though - when it comes to your skincare routine, consistency is key. Adding Vitamin C to your skincare routine will only work if you stick to it! Use it regularly. Because it has been proven to increase risk of UV damage, we reccomend applying your Vitamin C serum every night instead of in the morning. 


Add even more Vitamin C goodness with a facial mist. This can also be applied throughout the day to give your skin a moisturising boost and an extra dose of Vitamin C!


Top Tip: Sometimes, if you are using retinols alongside your vitamin C, this can mean your vitamin C products are not as effective. Use one product in the morning and one in the evening to avoid this!
