Why Your Skincare Routine Needs Vitamin C

The Role Of Vitamin C Serums In Skin Care.

Vitamin C is one of the most powerful active ingredients that you can add to your skincare routine. It helps to brighten your complexion and create a radiant glow. The benefits of vitamin C include its ability to act as an instant pick-me-up for dull and tired-looking skin. Whatever your skin type, you can benefit from adding a dose of vitamin C into your skincare routine. At Timeless Skincare, the 20% Vitamin C + E Ferulic Acid Serum is one of the best-sellers – they have even nicknamed it “The Brightener”. 

While vitamin C is something we can add to our diet, most of us don’t get enough of it – which is where your skin care routine comes in. Serums are the best way to get a potent amount of vitamin C directly to your skin.


Vitamin C is raved about by beauty editors and influencers alike as being the ultimate anti-ageing ingredient. It’s famous for being able to stimulate your collagen production to keep your skin looking younger by fending off fine lines and wrinkles.

As we get older, our collagen level starts to drop, along with our skin’s elasticity. When this happens, your skin begins to sag and starts to look dull. Vitamin C resets the clock and boots your collagen and elastin to tighten your skin and brighten your complexion.

One of the main components of vitamin C is magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, which gives your skin a hydrating moisture boost. It works by improving your skin’s moisture retention to keep it plump and fire. 

As vitamin C has anti-inflammatory properties, it brightens your complexion by diminishing the appearance of redness in your skin, while smoothing its texture to create a dewy glow. Vitamin C also helps with whitening your skin by treating hyperpigmentation as it’s been proven to impede melanin production, which can cause dark spots and melasma on your skin.

No matter how bright your skin might be, under-eye circles can instantly make you appear older and tired looking. Vitamin C hydrates and plumps the lines around your under-eye area, and it can help reduce the skin discolouration that creates under-eye bags. 

You can use vitamin C serum after cleansing and toning your skin to help your skin absorb the active ingredients. Make sure to finish off your routine with a moisturizer to seal in your serum for optimum results. Timeless 20% Vitamin C + E Ferulic Acid Serum is safe to layer with your other facial oils and serums, including AHAs, retinols, and your daily sunscreen. 

Vitamin C’s antioxidant properties keep your skin brighten by protecting it from the free radical damage that is associated with UV rays. You can have bright and whiten skin all year round, even in the height of summer. If you end up with a sunburn, vitamin C boosts cellular turnover to replace your damaged cells with new ones.

You can purchase Timeless 20% Vitamin C + E Ferulic Acid Serum directly from the Timeless Skincare website.
