Most of us know by now that we should be eating a balanced diet comprised of whole foods which provide us with the vitamins and minerals we need. One important factor in a balanced diet is an adequate supply of vitamin C, which can be found in a number of sources like citrus fruits and bell peppers. Vitamin C is essential for the body in many ways, and good skin relies heavily on having enough vitamin C, so we thought we’d take a look at five products from our shelves which contain a healthy dose of vitamin C for your skin:
This cleansing gel from Jan Marini builds to a luxurious lather to soothe, repair and cleanse the skin. It’s a gentler alternative to products which contain glycolic acid, making it suitable for even sensitive skin types. It encourages noticeably softer, more refined skin texture and is potent but sensitive enough to use to remove stubborn eye make up.
Vitamin C can have a profound effect when it comes to brightening the skin, which is why Elemis have packed this dark spot corrector with it. Its brush applicator targets key areas of concern on the face, neck, decolletage and hands and the ELEMIS brightening complex of encapsulated vitamin C, Pea and Daisy is blended with Garden Cress to help reduce the intensity of dark spots without affecting the surrounding area.
This high performance serum has been designed around an advanced vitamin C-based complex which works with the skins own defences to brighten and firm. The serum exfoliates and reduces unbalanced pigmentation, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and prevents and corrects free radical damage.
This product from Jan Marini is as powerful as it is unique – so often, anti-ageing products focus solely on dry skin, but this serum is for people with oily skin. The serum itself will help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while substantially reducing oil breakthrough. With continued use skin texture will appear smoother and deep lines will be less pronounced.
This fortified eye treatment from Dermalogica uses vitamin C for its antioxidant properties, combining it with wild yam to help repair prematurely-aging skin and smooth fine dehydration lines. It diminishes dry, fine lines and replenishes hydration around the delicate eye area while soothing botanicals of cucumber, butcherbroom and arnica help maintain the skin’s elasticity and texture.
