So Vitamin C has been a buzz in the skin community for a while… And with good reason!

Here’s some quick facts on the skin powerhouse… Vitamin C!

Quick Facts On Vitamin C:
Vitamin C (Also known as L-Ascorbic Acid) is a super anti-oxidant and skin healing nutrient.
It’s something that occurs naturally in our skin when we are young, but as we age, our Vitamin C levels naturally decrease. This leads to our skin looking uneven, dull and not as firm as it used to.

Other Benefits Of Vitamin C:⁠

💛 Evens Out Skin Tone⁠
💛 Brightens The Skin⁠
💛 Protects Against Acne Bacteria & Heals Scarring⁠
💛 Improves Skin Firmness ⁠
💛 Improves The Appearance Of Fine Lines & Wrinkles⁠
💛 Increases Effectiveness Of Sunscreen ⁠
💛 Protects Skin From Signs Of Free Radical Damage ⁠

Basically… It’s an absolute POWERHOUSE ingredient, that pretty much everyone should have in their skin routine*

*Providing your skin barrier is healthy and skin is not sensitive!

My Top Tips On Vitamin C:

🤓Vitamin C is strong and can be irritating to some skins. If you have sensitive skin or an impaired skin barrier, it is best to start with ingredients that strengthen the skin barrier first before using Vitamin C. I’d recommend a Vitamin B serum to begin if this sounds like your skin.

🤓I’d recommend using Vitamin C in serum form, over a cleanser or toner.
