Why you should add Vitamin C to your skincare lineup

We’re strong advocates of a quality skincare regime that not only nourishes our skin but also has lasting, noticeable affects in the long run. Whether it is the daily application of moisturiser, lathering on sunscreen even when there’s cloud cover or today’s topic of adding Vitamin C to your regime, it’s an important part of our day and definitely should be a part of yours.

Sometimes we need something a little more powerful to help our skin bounce back from blemishes, dullness or dryness. In what can be an irritating aftershock of alleviating our faces of pimples, scarring can remain. Hyper-pigmentation and the development of darker spots can also ruin your self-confidence even if your skin is supple and soft to touch. But we’re here to tell you that with a little Vitamin C added to your skincare routines, these can all be an imperfections of the past.

Vitamin C provides an array of benefits for the skin when included in the form of a moisturiser or serum. It is well known to even out skin tones, improve hydration, and is a potent antioxidant that assists in neutralising the skin. Most importantly, it breaks down skin pigmentation and scarring to complete the full circle of banishing imperfections on the skin. When ingested orally, the effects of vitamin C may be lessened so splurging on a new skincare purchase is a must and with good reason too!
