It can be a hard thing finding the right product for you, so here we delve a little deeper to help you find the Vitamin C that’s best for you and proving vitamins are good for the face too!

Although citrus fruit would often be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Vitamin C, the essential ingredient is also a potent skincare saviour.

Often available in a serum or moisturiser form, Vitamin C skincare products can be a life saver for reducing pigmentation, smoothing texture and defending against UV and radical damage. 

If any of these benefits sound appealing to you, we recommend trying out the magic ingredient with BIO Hydra C Serum by Lira Clinical. Incorporating 4 forms of Vitamin C contained in the specialist product, simply apply morning and night after cleansing and notice the difference. 

Getting back to the benefits, here’s a handful of benefits that you may experience when adding Vitamin C to your skin-care regime;

LIGHTEN UP

Although it’s recommended to take your vitamins daily, we also recommend you apply your facial Vitamin C daily too. If administered correctly, doing so can cause your skin to appear visibly brighter in a short amount of time. With promise to brighten dark areas and by harnessing anti-inflammatory properties, Vitamin C can help with a more even, glowy complexion. 

REDUCING PIGMENTATION 

A huge reason why Vitamin C is a vital skincare addition is because it contains a property that inhibits your skin’s production of melatonin – the chemical that can cause dark spots to appear more pronounced. Essentially, this ingredient aims to help halt pigmentation from worsening and can reduce the intensity of hyperpigmentation on your skin’s surface. 

 

COLLAGEN BOOSTER

Due to the highly acidic nature of Vitamin C, consistent use is known to increase collagen production and skin elasticity. This means you may notice your skin is firmer and bouncier in the short term and overtime, promoting collagen and elastic production can help with reducing the signs of premature ageing.

FREE RADICAL DAMAGE DEFENCE

Knowing just how damaging UVA/UVB rays and pollution can be for our skin, Vitamin C is just the super-ingredient to fight against negative impacts such as premature ageing and skin degradation. Incorporating a powerful Vitamin C into your routine (along with a quality 30+ SPF) can help best protect your skin from environmental and free radical damage caused by sun, heat, humidity and pollution.
