You may be used to popping Vitamin C as a supplement to fight an oncoming cold, but it's also being hyped as a wonder ingredient in skincare.
Vitamin C is renowned for protecting skin from UVA and UVB damage and for improving the appearance of sun-damaged skin by reducing hyper-pigmentation. It's also a magic wrinkle fighting ingredient as it boosts the body's production of collagen and firms skin.
Finally, this one stop shop wonder ingredient reduces inflammation and brightens skin. Or as dermatologist Dr Gach puts it, 'Vitamin C peels the superficial layers of the epidermis giving a fresher and brighter look to the skin as well as strengthens the collagen fibres.'
Still not convinced? Everyone from Adriana Lima and Halle Berry to Suki Waterhouse swear by using it.
