Ingredient Illuminated: Vitamin C

1 minute read 

Vitamin C has become a favourite ingredient among dermatologists and for good reason. It has a number of benefits for the skin. Ascorbic acid, as it is less commonly known, isn’t produced naturally by the body so to be able to reap the rewards of this powerhouse, it needs to be applied topically via your skincare and eaten as part of a healthy diet.

Raspberries are rich in Vitamin C and our upcycled raspberry fruit puree is a key ingredient within the KELSEY range. This vital skin health vitamin can help slow the signs of skin aging, provide hydration and improve the appearance of age-spots and wrinkles. By inhibiting the production of melanin, this glow-giver can minimise the appearance of dark spots, giving a more uniform complexion. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant, helping to neutralise free radicals in the skin caused by factors like pollution, UV light, and stress. Free radicals can lead to premature aging and skin damage,

Another benefit gained from topical application of Vitamin C are its anti-inflammatory properties, helping to control sebum production in the skin, soothing skin and reducing redness. Vitamin C plays a crucial role in the synthesis of collagen, a protein that provides structure and elasticity to the skin. Collagen production naturally declines with age, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin. By promoting collagen synthesis, Vitamin C helps maintain skin firmness and elasticity and helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

By incorporating Vitamin C into your morning skincare routine, you can protect your skin all day from the onslaught of skin damaging free radicals and improve the appearance of your skin, promoting a healthier and more youthful looking complexion.  Start your day with a refreshing, radiance boosting cleanse with our Luminous Glow cleanser. It also doubles as an express brightening mask, pop on the cleanser in the morning and leave it on for 10 minutes before washing off with warm water and see your complexion glow.

It’s also surely no surprise that it’s a key ingredient in our Brightening Concentrate – Three Moons. The stable vitamin C complex together with the alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) help to boost your cellular turnover resulting in smoother, brighter, more luminous skin.

Suitable for all skin types, Vitamin C is definitely an ingredient to look out for when choosing your skincare.
