5 reasons to add Vitamin C to your natural skincare routine

How to get glowing skin with Vitamin C

Sponsored by Andalou Naturals

With the abundance of skincare available, it’s a jungle out there when it comes to deciphering what your skin really needs. But if it’s even skin tone and clear, glowing skin that you’re after (and really, who isn’t?), then vitamin C skincare is your go-to. 

The popularity of Vitamin C is well-known, but what does Vitamin C skincare do for your skin? In short: a lot. Few ingredients are better for brightening, protecting from environmental stress and treating pigmentation. If you’re wondering how to get even skin tone: it starts with including Vitamin C in your skincare routine. Here are five reasons your skin needs Vitamin C.


  1. Antioxidants

A natural antioxidant powerhouse, Vitamin C protects the skin from free radical damage, and promotes tissue repair and collagen production. It is also generally well-tolerated, making it ideal for all skin types, tones and ages. 

  1. Hydrating

Little known as a hydrating ingredient, Vitamin C packs a hydration double-punch by delivering the antioxidant to the skin and then locking in moisture, combining to boost radiance and glow.

  1. Brightening

This is where Vitamin C skincare starts to really, well, shine. Effective in correcting redness and uneven skin tone and lightening hyperpigmentation. For dull, tired skin, Vitamin C is a gamechanger, brightening skin and boosting radiance. The result? Clear, glowing skin.

  1. Anti-ageing

Vitamin C targets early signs of ageing, by promoting collagen production and cell renewal. It makes for the best eye cream for fine lines, targeting dark under-eye circles and fine lines and filtering UV rays.

  1. UV protection

Acting as an environmental shield, Vitamin C protects the skin from free radical damage, pollution and sun damage. It inhibits the skin’s natural production of melanin, and repairs damage from sun exposure by encouraging cell turnover and regeneration.
