The Benefits Of Vitamin C:
Often hidden behind the spotlight that Vitamin A soaks up, Vitamin C is actually a real hero ingredient that I think should be celebrated more. It's a powerful antioxidant that boasts anti-ageing properties among a list of other benefits.
Vitamin C promotes collagen and elastin production for firmer, more youthful-looking skin
It brightens skin and restores radiance to dull complexions
It can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
As an antioxidant, it fights and repairs free radical damage for a more even skin tone
Why Do I Like This Serum?
An upgrade from Medik8’s best selling C-Tetra, the Intense version is a stronger formulation boosted with additional brightening and nourishing ingredients for amplified results. I’m not a fan of many Vitamin C formulas, but this has a lightweight oil consistency that sinks into the skin beautifully. I just make sure to give it a few minutes to absorb before following with the rest of my skincare.
As far as what it’s done for my skin, the results really do speak for themselves. In just three months it has faded much of my discolouration and improved the overall clarity of my skin. The result? A visibly more plump, even-toned and radiant complexion. My skin just looks healthier. I now have the confidence to go makeup free most days, something which my teenage self would have never thought possible. Now that I’m part of the glow club, I never want to go back.
