Why You Need Vitamin C In Your Skincare Routine

It’s the ingredient that has been on everyone’s lips and for good reason. With the ability to address a whole host of common skincare concerns, if you want to know more about the wonders of this powerful skin saviour, read on…

So, what’s all the fuss about Vitamin C? Firstly, when used daily, it protects the skin against damage caused by pollution and UV radiation, helping to prevent premature ageing. Secondly, it also aids regeneration, encouraging the skin to heal itself by stimulating collagen production, which in turn reduces the appearance of wrinkles and achieves a firmer, smoother complexion. Lastly, (as if you needed another reason to add it to your beauty collection) it is fantastic for brightening skin tone, reducing hyperpigmentation, brown spots and marks caused by breakouts and sun damage.

Ask any dermatologist or beauty guru and they will gush over the skin-saving benefits of vitamin C (also known as ascorbic acid). When used topically, this is a powerful antioxidant that is integral in keeping our skin cells healthy.

Coming in a variety of forms, Pixi Beauty has an entire range dedicated to this skin-loving ingredient. For the most effective way to reap the benefits, the Vitamin-C Serum is an excellent choice, applied morning and/or night prior to your moisturiser. If you are already using a serum then supercharge your routine by using the Vitamin-C Caviar Balm, this mask can be used once to twice a week to give your skin a luminous boost.

 A fan of the cult classic, Glow Tonic? The next wonder toner to try is the Vitamin C Tonic which will protect, tone and brighten your complexion, using fruit extracts to gently exfoliate whilst it works. Finally, give dull skin a daily dose of glow by swapping your usual moisturiser for the Vitamin-C Lotion. We promise your skin will thank you for it.

Known as the go-to ingredient for a vast array of skin dilemmas, it’s clear to see why this legendary antioxidant receives such high praise and is often recommended by experts. To get in on the Vitamin C action, shop our favourites from the range below:
