WHAT IS A VITAMIN C ANTIOXIDANT SERUM?

Considered to be one of the most powerful and effective topical antioxidants, Vitamin C, otherwise known as L-Ascorbic Acid, is a topical antioxidant that helps to neutralise free radicals and helps to protect the skin against excessive oxidative stress. When added topically to the skin, it can help skin to look brighter, more luminous and prevent premature ageing signs from appearing. The good news is that Vitamin C is suitable for all skin types and can benefit everyone.

WHY SHOULD YOU USE A VITAMIN C ANTIOXIDANT SERUM?

Vitamin C isn’t naturally produced by the body, so in order to reap its benefits it needs to be applied topically to the skin and incorporated into a healthy diet with foods such as citrus fruits. A serum is the most effective way of introducing it into your daily skincare regime – especially when used alongside broad-spectrum sun protection.

WHAT DOES VITAMIN C ANTIOXIDANT SERUM DO FOR YOUR SKIN?

Vitamin C helps to provide advanced environmental protection and protects skin from ageing, with benefits such as reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and discolouration. Vitamin C helps to brightens the skin and bring a more luminous appearance to the complexion.
