Importance of Vitamin C


Vitamin C is a vital nutrient for health and one of the most popular ingredients in skincare and very well trusted by dermatologists and estheticians. It helps form and maintain our bones, skin, and blood vessels. It is also a powerful antioxidant and plays an important role in promoting collagen production, brightening and suppressing melanin production. 

Main Benefits Of Vitamin C

Improves Collagen production
During the collagen creation process in your skin, vitamin C helps bind the skin cells together to improve the overall production. As we age, the body naturally starts to lose collagen and production slows down, but by adding vitamin C you can help counteract this process and improve the appearance of elasticity and firmness in your skin.
Fights against free radicals 

Being one of the most well known antioxidants, vitamin C can fight against the visible effects of free radicals helping to protect your skin from the atmospheric dangers that bombard you each day. When used regularly, you’ll notice a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and a healthier-looking complexion.



Additional Benefits 
  • Brightens &minimises age spots and hyper-pigmentation of the skin.
  • Firms skin. 
  • Reduces skin redness.
  • Hydrates Skin. 
  • Helps to protect against skin damage from UV light. 
  • Enhances your skin's natural defence mechanism. 



How to Use Vitamin C in your skincare routine 

Vitamin C can be applied both morning and evening as part of your skincare routine. We suggest using a serum under your moisturiser or a cream form following your cleansing routine. Always recommended to apply a sunscreen afterwards for protection.
