Vitamin C – what is it, exactly? We all know there’s plenty of it to be found in the humble orange, but what can it really do for our skin topically?
I’ve been using vitamin C in my skincare routine for a long time – it’s fantastic for reducing pigmentation and evening out your skin tone, especially after you’ve had some sunshine on your face. But I wanted to delve a little deeper into the world of vitamin C, so I decided to ask the expert – our brilliant Chief Innovation Officer, Claire – to get into the nitty gritty about how it actually works chemically to improve our skin.
There are a lot of vitamin C products available on the market, so when it comes to deciding which one is right for you, it can seem like a minefield. The key is to think about the quantity of vitamin C the product contains, the form it takes (for example, is it a powder or a liquid?) and what kind of texture might work best for your skin type.
I have a feeling I’ll be back to bug Claire with some more skincare questions very soon...
