Does anyone else just love vitamin c in your skincare routine? It gives you such a beautiful glow… you really just cannot beat it! This potent antioxidant is a favourite for many and can be found in The Body Shop’s Vitamin C range. Let’s take a moment to talk about their Vitamin C Mist and Glow Boosting Microdermabrasion.
Why Vitamin C? Well, here are some of the benefits in skincare:
It’s hydrating and decreases trans epidermal water loss, allowing your skin to better retain moisture.
It can help fade pigmentation and smooth the skin’s surface to reduce dullness, leaving you with a youthful glow.
Vitamin C has anti-inflammatory properties – so can help minimise redness on the skin.
It has been shown to delay melanin production so can help fade hyperpigmentation (which occurs when melanin is overproduced in certain areas of the skin) so can help fade dark spots and lead to a more even-toned complexion.
It also boosts collagen production, firming the skin
It also protects against sun damage due to the high level of antioxidants
The Body Shop Vitamin C glow boosting microdermabrasion
This is a fine-grained manual exfoliator made from ground camu, which is rich in vitamin c. It is a gentle, but effective exfoliator that leaves your skin feeling and looking smooth and fresh.
Love using this when my skin is feeling particularly rough… I love the feel of this to get a really good scrub. It has very small, micro granules to smooth away at the skin without irritation. Love.
Utilizes L-Ascorbic Acid.

Mists have become an increasingly popular addition to our skincare collections, but a mist that is more than just water in pretty packaging is always going to be a winner. This offering from The Body Shop offers skin brightening vitamin c and is designed to energise dull, tired skin.
