VITAMIN C IN YOUR SKINCARE


What does vitamin C in skincare actually do?


It's antioxidant properties aids in your skin's natural regeneration process, which helps your body repair damaged skin cells.


Vitamin C is a key anti-ageing skincare ingredient that helps to gently brighten and smooth your skin. It's one of the most powerful antioxidants and helps protect your skin against free radical damage caused by the environment, which can breakdown your collagen and encourage wrinkles and sagging. Sounds good huh!


But choosing the right product for you can be tricky. It comes in different concentrates and if you have sensitive skin then it's important to be careful not to go in too heavy.


Products with lower concentrations of vitamin C...

REN glow daily vitamin C gel cream - this is one of the simplest ways of getting vitamin C into your daily routine as it's bundled together into their day cream, simple!


Balance Me Vitamin C repair serum - replace your usual serum for this one. If you suffer with sun damage then this could be for you.


Pixi Vitamin C tonic - replace your usual toner for this and wipe it over your face on a cotton pad.


If you want to try higher strength vitamin C products then give one of these a go.


The Ordinary 23% or 30% suspension - at a great price point it's not going to break the bank. The grainy texture is a little odd but apply it before your night cream and use your night cream to help it settle into the skin. The brightening properties in this little bottle are well worth getting past the strange texture.


Murad intensive-C radiance peel


A slightly different method of application, this combines ascorbic acid with glycolic acid – a pairing to smooth, brighten and protect. Apply a layer on to cleansed skin once a week and leave for 10 minutes before washing off.

Mascara is quite often said to be a desert island product. With many clients professing to 'not leave the house without a bit of mascara'. I personally always feel a look isn't complete without mascara and especially when working with fair lashes it can even make a look appear strange or odd until the mascara is applied. If you have fair lashes yourself, always bare this is mind. Go with the eye shadow you had planned and trust your instincts with your eye shadow application until you have finished off with mascara.

Black mascara is the most effective in terms of achieving the most stand out look but if you want something more subtle then browns are readily available too.


When looking for a new mascara consider what you want from it. Volume - I.e you want you lashes to look fuller and thicker or length - I.e you want them to look longer and more defined but not necessarily thicker. Some will profess to do both. People can be quite particular so read reviews and the blurb about the product to be sure it matches what you're looking for.


Waterproof mascara does exactly what it says on the tin. It can't be removed with water and if you cry / get caught in a rain shower it won't be streaming down your face. They're great for weddings etc but not the best for your lashes as you need something stronger to remove it. So don't wear waterproof daily. Some mascaras will say they're water resistant, this is not the same thing as waterproof. They might not smudge immediately with water contact but can be removed with water and will dissolve with excess moisture.


My 3 favourite mascaras are...

Doucce Mascara

Arbonne it's a long story mascara

Maybelline Collosal Volume mascara
