Why Should We Use Vitamin C in our Makeup?

Discover the skincare must-have ingredient, vitamin C and why this should be a staple in your skincare and makeup routine.

Vitamin C is a wonderful ingredient that can benefit all of our makeup and skincare routines. With this guide, find out exactly what is Vitamin C, and what skincare benefits it has.


Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, that you’ll most likely have heard of in the context of fruit and vegetables – oranges have lots of Vitamin C! It’s also a powerful antioxidant, which can help repair and restore tissues in the body. For this reason, it’s a great skin care ingredient.


The benefits of Vitamin C have been known for years, so it’s no wonder that it has been making its way into our makeup bags.

With its restorative properties, it is clear why this vitamin is lauded as a must-have skincare ingredient. In its gentlest form, it will help to subtly brighten and smooth the appearance of your skin. It can also benefit your skin by protecting it against free radical damage caused by the environment, which helps to eliminate breakdown of collagen.

When it comes to our skin, Vitamin C is a fabulous ingredient to watch out for, so you can reap all the benefits. The best thing? Vitamin C is ideal for ANY age, because it can help to pause any further damage to your skin.
