Vitamin C is a must-have in your diet, but it is also a must-have in your skincare routine if you want to both prevent and correct signs of premature ageing. This powerful anti-ageing ingredient protects skin against free radical damage with antioxidant properties. Vitamin C also boosts collagen production and improves elasticity for plumper, firmer, and younger-looking skin.
Vitamin C benefits are endless, as this micronutrient does not just help with anti-ageing. It can also soothe irritated skin and reduce the inflammation of rosacea, eczema, and generally sensitive skin. It can help brighten skin, minimise pigmentation, and smooth skin for improved skin texture. Vitamin C is the ultimate ingredient for full skin rejuvenation and protection.
Medik8 has developed a series of serums, treatments, and moisturisers that harness the powers of Vitamin C for your complexion. If you have youthful skin, you likely want to prevent premature ageing. If you are further along the ageing process, you surely want to reduce the signs. In either case, Medik8 offers high-potency and effective Vitamin-C-based products, such as Vitamin C serums, for your skincare routine.

Which Vitamin C product is best for younger skin?
Vitamin C is incredibly beneficial in any skincare routine, no matter how young you are. This vitamin can help to prevent signs of premature ageing and protect skin from damaging environmental aggressors.
Medik8 C-Tetra Vitamin C Day Cream is an easy way to incorporate Vitamin C into your skincare routine without using potent serums and fussing with too many products. Medik8 uses Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, a stable, oil-based version of Vitamin C, alongside Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerine to protect and hydrate skin. This is a great option for teenage skin and those in their 20s.
Which Vitamin C product is best for ageing skin?
For those in their mid-20s through their 40s, Medik8 C-Tetra Vitamin C serum is a perfect addition to a preventative skincare routine. This ultra-stable serum helps to stimulate collagen production and increase skin’s elasticity whilst brightening the complexion and improving skin texture. C-Tetra contains 3% Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, making it incredibly potent yet highly stable for maximum efficiency.
Which Vitamin C product is best for mature skin?
For mature skin, Medik8 C E Tetra is the best option, as it contains 7% Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, making it a highly concentrated Vitamin C formula. It helps to repair sun-damaged skin and increase collagen synthesis on ageing complexions.
Which Vitamin C product is best for oily skin?
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is an oil-based Vitamin C. Medik8 Vitamin C products that contain this ingredient may feel too heavy and greasy on oily skin. However, Medik8 has also developed CE-Thione serum for those with oily complexions who want to enjoy the benefits of Vitamin C.
CE-Thione contains the water-soluble form of Vitamin C, L-Ascorbic Acid. L-Ascorbic Acid is less stable than Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, as it can oxidise and change colour and smell quickly. To combat this, Medik8 has decanted CE-Thione into 2 small bottles containing 15 ml of product each. This packaging prevents the product from oxidising before the bottle is finished. CE-Thione also contains L-Glutathione, which helps to recycle vitamin C in the bottle and on the skin, making it last much longer.
