EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT VITAMIN C

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT VITAMIN C

Vitamin C is well known as the first line for defence for staving off colds, but did you know that it’s also a hero skincare ingredient? A natural antioxidant, it works by neutralising free radicals, which are rogue molecules caused by sun radiation, smoke and pollution that can damage the DNA of skin cells. On a more surface level, vitamin C brightens skin and helps fade sun spots.

Pretty much all skin types will benefit from a hit of this vitamin, whether via slipping some extra citrus fruits into your diet, or by adding vitamin C-charged products into your daily beauty routine. A serum layered under moisturiser at night time will penetrate deeply into dehydrated skin, whereas waters, gels and wash-off formulas will offer a lighter dose for more sensitive skin types. Look out for products that have dark-tinted, airtight bottles. Exposure to air, light and heat can destabilise vitamin C and will affect the potency of your product, so keep it in a cool, dark place.
