If you’re thinking of changing up your skincare regime, or building one from scratch, Vitamin C is a great place to start! From Vitamin C moisturiser to eye cream, Vitamin C skincare is a popular choice!But what makes it so great? And what products are best to use? We’ve put together our ultimate guide for everything you need to know about Vitamin C for skin, so keep reading for the lowdown.
Vitamin C benefits for skin
Where to start when it comes to Vitamin C benefits for skin? An antioxidant, Vitamin C helps your skin regenerate. Damaged skin cells? That’s where Vitamin C will come in too.
Your body produces collagen naturally, but the production slows down as you age – Vitamin C encourages collagen production, as well as protecting the collagen you already have! Hence, it can help to slow down the aging process.
Meanwhile, we constantly come into contact with the sun’s UV rays, pollution, and other things that can damage our skin. Antioxidants like Vitamin C neutralise ‘free radicals’ (i.e., particularly reactive molecules). This can even help protect our skin from the development of skin cancer.
Men’s Vitamin C regime for skin
Step 1. Vitamin C face wash
To help keep you feeling alert and bring your skin to life, you can’t go wrong with our Anti-Fatigue Face Wash. Simply use it in the morning and evening each day, massaging it softly onto your wet face before rinsing it off. Enriched with Vitamin C, it gets deep into your pores to cleanse the skin leaving it looking youthful and feeling fresh too.
Also for your face is our Deep Exfoliating Face Scrub. Like the Anti-Fatigue Face Wash above, it unblocks your pores, and the natural exfoliating particles present in the scrub work to cleanse your skin and keep it looking great, while removing excess shine. You only need to use it once a day, applying to wet skin and massaging gently, so it’s easy to bring into your routine.
Step 2. Vitamin C eye cream
Step 3. Vitamin C cream
You can top your regime off with some of our Vitamin C moisturiser. Try our Daily Moisturiser to keep your skin feeling soft and hydrated for 24 hours and help protect it from the elements. Or to keep your skin feeling energised try our Anti-Fatigue Moisturiser - it helps protect your face from dullness, dark circles, tightness, loss of firmness and roughness for full coverage. Another option for fighting fatigue is our Recharging Moisturiser, our first that’s enriched with creatine, as it feels fresh on your skin and helps to keep it hydrated.
If you want to use a gel formula, our Anti-Shine Moisturiser could be the way to go. It’s designed for tired and oily skin and, enriched with Vitamin C and guarana, the formula keeps your face feeling refreshed. It fights against the feeling of tightness and dryness for up to 24 hours. Alternatively, you could try the Healthy Look Tinted Gel. It gives your skin a subtle, natural-looking glow, while simultaneously hydrating your skin – it’s a win-win!
Step 4. Weekly Vitamin C face mask for men
Last but not least, don’t forget to treat yourself to a Tissue Mask up to three times a week! Containing taurine, it helps hydrate your skin while fighting excess oil to keep your skin in tip-top condition. Simply leave the mask on for five minutes, and then you’ll be good to go.
