Vitamin C. The skin-boosting ingredient you need to know about

Want brighter, tighter, and, overall better-looking skin? There's an ingredient for that: vitamin C. The powerhouse ingredient is a potent antioxidant that helps reduce inflammation, pigmentation, and promotes healthy collagen production.

Vitamin C is not just for fending off colds

Along with retinol, it is one of the few proven anti-aging skincare ingredients, can improve visible signs of sun damage and scarring, and helps defend skin against environmental damage caused by free radicals.

Vitamin C should be part of every skincare regime 

No matter what skin type, but all vitamin Cs aren’t made equal. Certain types of vitamin C break down and is are less effective when exposed to oxygen. Ascorbic acid is the A-plus of vitamin Cs backed by scientific research and proven results. Rich in antioxidants, vitamin C helps fend off damage caused by free radicals such as premature aging, fine lines, wrinkles and dullness.

Do I need to apply sunscreen after using vitamin C?

The short answer, yes. Sunscreen should be applied directly after using the mask and for two weeks thereafter. But, hey, you should already be using sunscreen as part of your everyday skincare routine so… no biggie.

Vitamin C promotes healthy collagen production

Vitamin C increases the skin’s natural collagen synthesis helping to diminish signs of aging and improve skin texture. Collagen is a vital building block of the skin helping to repair and renew damaged skin cells.
