Skincare 101: The best vitamin C serum

When thinking about glowy skin our first port of call is a vitamin C serum. Like when you’re feeling under the weather and in need of a boost, you turn to the options of vitamin C like adding a big class of OJ to your morning breakfast! In this blog we’ll share the vitamin C benefits and, of course, the best vitamin C serum for you.  


What are the benefits of vitamin C?

Often, you might be wondering but what is vitamin C good for? It’s a hero ingredient which has been in the skincare industry since the beginning and now one of the most searched-for skincare ingredients – and we’ll explain why:

  • Brightening. An obvious vitamin C benefit, but dull skin types need this ingredient! If you suffer from dark spots, pigmentation and uneven texture and tone, vitamin C has the ability to inhibit melanin production which reduces the appearance of these.
  • Protecting. Vitamin C = antioxidant, making it highly effective in protecting our skin from damaging free radicals we’re exposed to on the daily. As well as neutralising these free radicals, this enables vitamin C to help against premature ageing, dullness, dry skin and other skin concerns.
  • Smoothing. Because who doesn’t want smooth, glowing youthful skin? Vitamin C really is a powerhouse ingredient. Say goodbye to uneven texture and tone, fine lines and wrinkles!

Where can I find the best vitamin C serum?

It’s time to introduce LET’S CONCENTRATE Skin Glowing Serum! An exciting addition to the TEMPLESPA serum family for that ultimate glowy skin result. Our high-performance and innovative gel serum is enriched with vitamin C, sodium hyaluronate (super hydrating!) a blend of clever minerals and a selection of Mediterranean inspired extracts. Each designed to reduce the appearance of dull and uneven skin tone, help smooth texture and brighten and clarify.


How do I use a vitamin C serum?

After cleansing and toning, take your LET’S CONCENTRATE and apply a few drops to your palms before massaging into your skin. Allow a few moments between your serum and moisturiser to allow it to sink into the skin. Top tip: Try ‘pressing’ your serum into your skin rather than stretching and manipulating it, which can cause unnecessary redness and strain on the skin.

Where can I find other vitamin C skincare?
