SKINCARE AND vitamin c

Wouldn’t it be great to wake each morning with a bright, even and blemish-free complexion? Understanding your skincare regime and the effects of active ingredients will go a long way to helping you achieve healthy, refined and radiant looking skin.

 

Vitamin C is one of the most crucial ingredients for revitalising the skin, which is why we try to incorporate it into as many of our formulas as possible. From anti-ageing to sun protection, the list of Vitamin C’s benefits is extensive. Keep reading to find out why you should be incorporating this powerhouse ingredient into your skincare regime.

3. Super sun protection

 

Vitamin C is commended as a strong antioxidant, helping to strengthen the skins barrier and thicken its dermis. Incorporating products such as our Super Serum Duo into your skincare regime will help to re-educate the skin, reducing the effects of sunburn caused by exposure to harmful UV rays whilst preventing the consequences of long term sun exposure.

 

4. Anti-ageing miracle

 

Vitamin C promotes the production of collagen, which is a prime substance for binding skin cells together. Better collagen production is a key attribute of healthy, smooth and younger looking skin, helping to reduce signs of premature ageing and promoting an enviably even skin tone and texture.

7. Happy, hydrated skin

 

Vitamin C has been shown to decrease water loss and retain moisture due to its ability to absorb easily into the skin. It is these properties that make it so effective at keeping the skin hydrated, making it the perfect ingredient for anyone with dry or sensitive skin.

 

8. Generally increases health, vitality and radiance

 

Products containing Vitamin C make a simple addition to your skincare regime that will allow you to maintain fresh looking skin for longer. Take it a step further with our Resurface and Peel Homecare System; tackling a variety of skin concerns it promises to overhaul the complexion, revealing instantly more youthful skin.

5. Even skin tone and balanced complexion

 

Adding the correct dose of Vitamin C into your skincare regime can reduce the appearance of discolouration and pigmentation within the skin. We recommend using a facial serum, like our Brightening Boost, to penetrate the surface of the skin and deliver greater stimulation to ensure sheer luminosity.

 

6. Lightens and brightens

 

Vitamin C is such a simple addition to your skincare regime that promises to uplift skin tone. It tackles a variety of concerns from premature ageing and pigmentation to increasing cell renewal, helping to restore radiance for an unmistakably natural glow.

1. Fighting free radicals

 

Free radicals are molecules that attack the skin damaging collagen levels, causing dry, flaky patches to appear which, in time, can lead to signs of premature ageing. Vitamin C is an anti-oxidant that helps slow the rate of free-radical damage on the skin. Derivatives of Vitamin C, such as Ascorbic Acid, can neutralise free radicals and even reverse their effects on the skin.

 

2. Shields from the visible impacts of pollution

 

The dirt, grime and impurities found in the air attacks the natural barrier of the skin, leaving the face feeling irritated with signs of redness and sensitivity. Vitamin C goes a long way in protecting against pollution by aiding in the healing of wounds and reducing the signs of inflammation.
