Vitamin C is a vital nutrient which our body needs to grow and function healthily. The skin is no exception, but as we cannot produce the powerful antioxidant ourselves, it has become a synthetic saviour. Revitalising skin and targeting skincare woes, it’s no wonder vitamin C has become a staple in women’s skincare routine.
Vitamin C builds up the skin's two outer layers – the epidermis and dermis – which naturally diminish over time, by repairing damaged skin cells and strengthening their function. Vitamin C also boosts skin’s collagen and elastin, treats dry skin, and prevents environmental stressors and skin damage.
