3 main reasons you should add Vitamin C to your routine

1. Potent Antioxidant

When applied topically, Vitamin C has powerful antioxidant ability. Antioxidants protect our skin by neutralising the damage caused by free radicals, which are generated by pollution and exposure to ultraviolet rays. To get the best antioxidant benefit, apply your Vitamin C product in the morning.


2. Supports Collagen

Vitamin C plays a crucial role in supporting our skin’s collagen, which is essential for maintaining the skin’s elasticity and firmness, keeping our skin looking firm and youthful.


3. Brightens skin tone

Vitamin C also contains properties that help brighten skin tone, making it a must-have ingredient if you’re concerned with sun damage and post inflammatory pigmentation.

How to use Vitamin C in your routine


When it comes to incorporating Vitamin C into your skincare routine, it’s essential to understand that not all types of topical Vitamin C are the same. There are water soluble (L-ascorbic acid, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate) and oil soluble (Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate,Tetrahexyldexl Ascorbate) forms of Vitamin C available.

L-ascorbic acid is considered the most potent form of Vitamin C; however, it is notoriously unstable and sensitive to light, air and heat. Look for opaque or tinted bottles if they contain this ingredient. L-ascorbic acid in high concentrations can be irritating to sensitive skin types, so opt for formulations that have the addition of anti-inflammatory antioxidants like Vitamin E or ferulic acid.
