We all know how glowing skin and vitamin c are fast becoming hot conversation topics and highly searched for on the internet, but what is vitamin c really good for and how can we get glowing skin? We’ve answered all your questions in the blog, we’ll share the vitamin c benefits, our ultimate routine for glowing skin and what vitamin c skincare you need.
Let’s first answer why we could have dull skin and how we can turn this around for glowing, radiant results. Dull skin can be the result of a lack of hydration (both from our skincare and drinking our recommended daily amount) not enough exfoliation, missing double cleansing your makeup away each day and lifestyle factors such as lack of sleep and an unhealthy lifestyle. To turn this around we opt for brightening ingredients like vitamin c to help tackle dull skin!
What are the benefits of vitamin c?
- Brightening. The most well-known benefit but vitamin c has the ability to inhibit the production of melanin which reduces the appearance of dark spots, pigmentation and uneven texture and tone.
- Protecting. Vitamin c is a clever antioxidant which helps to protect our skin from daily damaging free radicals. It gets to work neutralising the free radicals and aids in fighting against premature ageing and dull skin.
- Smoothing. Because vitamin c has benefits of brightening and protecting, a result is also helping skin tone, texture and fine lines appear smoother and less visible!
What is the best serum for glowing skin?
A serum is where a blend of highly targeted ingredients deliver on specific skin concerns like dullness, ageing, dehydration etc. For dull skin that’s in need of a glowing boost in the form of a serum, we recommend our LET’S CONCENTRATE Skin Glowing Serum that blends intelligent ingredients in a gel texture to aid the appearance of radiant, youthful complexions. The results? Overall brighter, clearer and smoother skin!
And with 77% of our user trial agreeing their skin looks instantly brighter and 80% agreeing their skin feels instantly smoother, the proof is in the numbers!
Time for the steps for our vitamin c skincare and where to find the best serum for glowing the skin…
Step 1: Cleanse. The first step in any skincare routine, and our favourite cleanser for dry dull skin is IN THE BEGINNING Deep Cleansing Melt. A beautiful buttery cleanser with exfoliating pieces that melt as you massage it in, gently buffing away at the skin and aids hydration with olive oil and nourishing ingredients!
Step 2: Mask. This is an additional step for when your skin needs that instant glowing boost and not one for the everyday routine, it’s perfect for special occasions or before heading out. Our MOST REVEALING Glowing Skin Oxygen Peel has AHAs (alpha-hydroxy-acid) like glycolic, lactic, mandelic and malic acids along with vitamin c fruits to exfoliate away dead dull skin cells.
Step 3: Tone. Paired a blend of AHAs like our MOST REVEALING, you’ll love our GLOWCOLIC Resurfacing Toner where you can see great vitamin c benefits. The hardworking toner works to dissolve the glue bonds attaching dead skin cells to the skin, lifting them clean away for brighter, smoother looking skin.
Step 4: Treat. Introducing the best serum for glowing skin! Our LET’S CONCENTRATE Skin Glowing Serum focuses on skin lacking in radiance, uneven skin tone and aids in blemish-prone skin too. The gelee texture sinks into the skin to aid hydration and provide a ‘healthy glow’ appearance.
Step 5: Moisturise. Often dull skin can be lacking in hydration and we love to address this with SKIN TRUFFLE Ultra Radiance Moisturiser. The luxury ingredients of black truffle, gold, silk and champagne are going to add a special touch to your skincare, tick the box for glowing, plumped and nourished skin.
