We all know vitamin C packs a serious punch when it comes to your immune system and wellbeing, but did you know it’s also a bit of a wonder ingredient for your skin?
The science behind it is complex but basically, the antioxidant properties of vitamin C and its role in collagen synthesis (how the body makes and uses collagen to build and hold skin cells together) make vitamin C a vital molecule for skin health.
Even in doses as low as 0.6% (usually found as Ascorbic Acid on your ingredients list), the proven benefits of using an enriched product can include:
Better sun protection
Fewer fine lines and wrinkles
Increased protection against environmental damage and free radicals
Increased elasticity in the skin
A more even skin tone
TOP TIP:Vitamin C is light sensitive, with a view to maintain the potency of your serum over a longer period, top quality products will come in darker bottles!
