The Power of Vitamin C in Skincare

Nature has given us an abundance of amazing ingredients that we can use to stay healthy and youthful for life. Skincare is not a new or modern concept. There are a wide array of beautiful fruits, herbs, plants, and minerals that are free from toxins and chemicals that have been used for thousands of years as part of a natural beauty and skincare routine.

While there are many natural ingredients that have amazing benefits for your skin, Vitamin C certainly is one of the most popular in facial products. What is the big deal with this extract, and what do you need to look for in skin care products to ensure you are getting the best results? 

Vitamin C is a natural antioxidant found in fruits, commonly citrus fruits, and vegetables. While most people know this Vitamin as a supplement which you consume, there are many benefits of using it topically in skin care products.

Vitamin C is a powerhouse of antioxidants which helps to guard your skin from free radical damage which is caused by environmental factors, such as pollution and sun exposure. It strengthens your skin and specifically fights the harmful effects of UVA and UVB rays from the sun, making this an essential skincare item for the summer months. Vitamin C is also essential for collagen production, which is what makes your skin look plump and rejuvenated, giving it that smooth, healthy glow. Although these properties are all amazing for your skin, the benefits don’t end there. Vitamin C interrupts pigment production, which means that you will see less dark spots on your skin - it is the ultimate skin brightener and fights against hyperpigmentation. 

If you are looking for the ultimate anti-ageing skincare product, it has to contain Vitamin C. Not only does it reverse the signs of ageing (fine lines, pigmentation, and wrinkles), but it actively prevents it too. Equil have an amazing face serum that features Vitamin C as one of its main ingredients which will keep you looking more youthful.

This delicate face serum is perfect for using as a luxurious night-time facial treatment on your face, neck, and around your eyes. Not only does this serum contain Vitamin C, but it has other beneficial oils and aloe vera to give you the best treatment, no matter what age you are.


Grapeseed oil adds to the anti-ageing properties of this beautiful face serum. It tightens pores and brightens your skin. It also absorbs right into your skin without leaving a greasy residue but leaves your skin feeling moisturized. Olive oil provides your skin with much-needed nutrients and a light, earthy olive fragrance. Orange oil is the ingredient which helps with Vitamin C absorption, ensuring you get all of its amazing benefits. Finally, aloe vera is known for its healing properties. This ingredient provides a lovely cooling effect on the skin and provides anti-inflammatory properties. All-in-all this serum provides everything that you need for beautiful glowing skin and has the bonus of a lovely fragrance too. 


When looking for skincare products, we always recommend that you read the ingredients — choosing products such as Equil, that are 100% natural means that you are providing your skin with beautiful ingredients that really work, without the damage and side effects caused by toxic chemicals and preservatives.
