Pull out your favourite cashmere and make haste to your local Starbucks, your pumpkin spiced latte awaits as... Autumn has arrived.  And although fallen leaves are brightening up your pathways, the colder weather and shorter days don’t equate to good things for your complexion. Dehydration and dullness are hallmarks to winter skin, but adding one ingredient to your routine will safeguard your skin come rain, wind or shine. Cue vitamin C... 

Why is vitamin C so important?

A water-soluble antioxidant, vitamin C has long been hailed for its healing properties. But, more and more research has shown that topical vitamin C is significantly more effective than consuming it — making it a must-have skin care ingredient.  

Essential to producing collagen in the body, vitamin C accelerates its production, as well as the formation of elastin. The result? Skin that looks plump and firm. But that’s not all... Vitamin C also helps reduce hyperpigmentation, protects against sun damage, enhances hydration, helps combat signs of ageing and reduces red and irritated skin. Pheeew! If you want to find out more about the benefits of this powerful component, why not head over to our Ingredient In Focus Vitamin C guide? 

But where to start in your vitamin C skin care journey?

Then, lather your skin in this gel-cream moisturiser. Infusing a concentrated burst of antioxidants is high-strength THD Ascorbate – the gold standard of vitamin C that’s not only powerful but incredibly stable. Fusing sodium hyaluronate and ergothioneine, the nourishing formula binds water into parched skin while keeping free radicals at bay. What’s more, with a balancing blend of calming allantoin, antioxidant-rich lutein and uplifting neroli, it doesn’t allow premature ageing to stand a chance here.

To finish, add a couple of drops of this potent facial oil. While most vitamin C products target the upper layers of the skin only, this glow-giving concoction is infused with oil-soluble vitamin C, immersed with superfood oils, to carry it to deeper parts of the dermis. Absorbed quickly and starring gentle. but powerful, THD Ascorbate, this face oil brightens and stimulates skin for a radiance like nothing else. 


And as if that wasn’t enough, Sunday Riley is a Cult Conscious brand that has been appointed a Leaping Bunny Cruelty-Free, PETA Cruelty-Free, B-Corporation and Female Founded Business proof points from our third-party partner Provenance. A clearer complexion and a clearer conscience? Sunday Riley has got you sorted!
