Vitamin C isn’t just about eating oranges. It’s a hot topic in skin care and for good reason.
You’ve probably heard of it, but do you know what it might do for your skin? Or how to use it?
Here’s everything you need to know about Vitamin C and how it could boost your skin care routine.
What can it do for your skin?
Brighten & reduce dullness
Help fade hyperpigmentation, acne scars and even out skin tone
Help reduce under eye dark circles
Promote collagen production to help firm and plump the skin
How does it work?
Vitamin C is a natural antioxidant, meaning it helps to protect skin from sun damage.
It also encourages the production of collagen, helping your skin cells replenish more quickly. This can even out skin tone and reduce pigmentation.
As with most skin care products, it can take a few weeks to see the benefits of using Vitamin C.
How should it be used?
Vitamin C is generally very well tolerated by most people’s skin, but if you have very sensitive skin, you may want to do a patch test.
Vitamin C comes in many different forms including serums, moisturisers and cleansers.
It can normally be used 1-2 times a day.
How can it fit into your 47 Skin routine?
Vitamin C is a great ingredient to use alongside Silver Chitoderm (the unique formula in our products) to help smooth, brighten and clear your complexion.
We would recommend using a Vitamin C serum or moisturiser as part of your 47 Skin routine.
Just make sure not to use it at the same time of day as your Super Hydrating Elixir, as this contains Niacinamide which can reduce some of the effects of Vitamin C. To read more about the benefits of Niacinamide on your skin, click here.
