How Vitamin C Benefits The Skin & The New Products To Try

Vitamin C is an essential skincare ingredient: not only does it brighten and refine uneven skin tone, it also helps diminish fine lines over time. But even though it comes highly recommended by dermatologists, it’s often hard to find effective formulations on a budget. Enter Superdrug’s latest line, which is brimming with the powerhouse ingredient and starts from just £4.99.


Each Formula Tackles A Number Of Concerns

The great thing about vitamin C is it targets several skincare concerns at once. It isn’t only loved for its antioxidant benefits, either – experts claim it’s highly acidic, which triggers skin to heal itself by accelerating the production of both collagen and elastin. Each product in Superdrug’s range uses vitamin C to revitalise skin, while fighting against premature signs of ageing, too, with the formulas working to neutralise any free radicals (environmental damage), and keep skin cells healthy. In other words, there’s little this range can’t do.

The Products Are Potent 

Every product in Superdrug's new vitamin C line is formulated with kakadu plum – which has the highest known concentration of vitamin C from any food on the planet. Each product helps to brighten skin, as well as evening out rough texture and tone. Meanwhile, added goji berry calms the skin and counteracts potential irritation, while also adding a healthy dose of moisture. 

It’s A Cruelty-Free & Vegan Range 

Leaping Bunny approved, this gentle range is cruelty-free and entirely vegan, so you can be assured you’re buying the cleanest and purest formulations, while still achieving impressive results. 

The products use vitamin C to plump skin, while fighting against premature signs of ageing, too, with the formulas working to neutralise any free radicals (environmental damage), and keep skin cells healthy.
