The Skin-Brightening Ingredient You Need In Your Routine

Joanna Fleming

Vitamin C, also known as Ascorbic Acid in most skincare products, is a must-have ingredient in any skincare routine. Its antioxidant properties neutralise the damaging effects of free radicals, and help to boost the skin’s defence against UV damage.

Vitamin C also boasts anti-ageing benefits; it works to encourage collagen production, fade post-inflammatory pigmentation and reduce the appearance of sun damage.
