Why is Vitamin C a MUST in your skin care regime?

What is Vitamin C and why is it going to benefit your skin, you may ask?

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that protects our skin against free radical damage. These factors include pollution, smoking, alcohol, air con, the sun and so much more. Vitamin C protects the skin from the effects of premature ageing and helps to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin to help reduce fine lies and wrinkles. This serum brightens your overall complexion and balances out that uneven skin tone.

We are advocates of Vitamin C here at Classic Beauty Therapy, it is one of our all time favourite products, can you see why we love it so much?

At Classic we stock C- Tetra by Medik8, which has only 3 powerful ingredients!

- It is formulated in Jojoba oil, which is the closest oil to our own sebum. Jojoba oil aids in balancing excess oil production, soothing, hydrating the skin. It is naturally rich in vitamin A, D and E, working to regenerate and rejuvenate the skin cells.

- C-Tetra contains 7% of Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (don't worry, we struggle to pronounce it as well) which is a lipid - soluble form of vitamin C that penetrates deep into the skin. - Vitamin E, always paired up with Vitamin C to helps to stabilize it. Vitamin E also aids in healing, calming and hydrating the skin while speeding up cell regeneration. You only need 3-4 drops and apply every morning before your moisturiser, its really that simple and your skin will thank you for it!
