Vitamin C skin benefits: Collagen stimulating, skin brightening, redness reducing and a potent anti-oxidant
Why we love it: As we age, our skins natural ability to produce collagen rapidly decreases, which is where vitamin c comes in to play. Vitamin c is well-loved for its ability to aid in stimulating collagen synthesis, helping the skin to appear more firm, plump and lifted. It is also a potent anti-oxidant, helping to protect skin from free-radical damage and is excellent at brightening dull skin tones, reducing hyperpigmentation and at evening out the complexion.
