Vitamin C Skincare | My Top Picks

I've used Vitamin C products in my skincare routine for years now and I still find it to be one of the most beneficial ingredients you can use after SPF and Hyaluronic Acid. It comes in a bunch of different forms and today I wanted to talk about the benefits of using Vitamin C in your routine and show you my top three picks.
So to start off, what is Vitamin C and what exactly does it do? Ascorbic Acid is a water-soluble vitamin and powerful anti-oxidant that we can't store in the body so we have to get it from our diets. It helps protect against free radical damage and pollution, promotes collagen synthesis and gives the skin a brighter, firmer appearance and also helps with signs of ageing. No wonder it's so popular! There's no denying it's a wonderful ingredient to incorporate into your skincare routine and personally I can't be without it! Nowadays pretty much every skincare brand has some sort of Vitamin C product and I'm so glad it's becoming more popular. 

I love facial mists as they're great for adding a protective layer on the skin when you're going to be out in the city surrounded by pollution and grime. The Body Shop Vitamin C Energising Face Spritz is amazing for refreshing the skin and giving you an instant boost when you're feeling a bit dull or dehydrated. It works really well over makeup and smells delicious! Another product I love and have used for years is the Super Facialist Vitamin C Brighten Glow Boost Skin Serum. I've loved everything I've tried from this range and for good reason. This has a beautiful light texture that absorbs really well and makes a great base for any moisturiser you put over top. When I use this consistently my skin looks so much brighter and the overall texture is a lot smoother. It's a great budget find! The most recent addition to my Vit C family is The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone*. I haven't been using this long enough to give my concluded thoughts but so far it's doing a great job at leaving my skin bright and glowy the next morning. The silicone texture is quite hard to get used to but once it's massaged into the skin you can hardly notice it! I'll definitely keep you updated on this one!
