“Vitamin C supports and strengthens skin cells to fight against environmental aggressors such as UV, Infrared Radiation and pollution, which are the main culprits of oxidative stress in skin,” explains Linda Blahr, Head of National Training at SkinCeuticals.
Vitamin C is pretty much the Holy Grail of skincare right now. Why? Because it helps to neutralise the damage the environment does to our skin and helps tackle dullness, dark spots and accelerated ageing. It also supports the production of collagen, leaving skin glowing, firmer and fresher.

If you’re seeking a purse-friendly option, the Generation Skincare Vitamin C Serum, which costs £13 on Amazon, has hundreds of 5-star reviews with customers saying it helps banish spots, fine lines and uneven skin tone.
The organic face cream contains an all-natural blend of powerful ingredients, such as skin superhero, hyaluronic acid, which hydrates your skin, brightens its complexion, and helps to remove acne and scars, as well as nourishing vitamin E, aloe vera and green tea extract. The brand is also completely cruelty-free.
In one of the Amazon reviews, an impressed beauty buff who shared a before and after photo, wrote: “I have been using this serum for the past couple of weeks now and as you can see it has made a massive difference between my skin tone. I suffer with redness on my face on this has made a massive difference. It’s not as red and I am sure the more I use it the more it will go down. The dryness on my skin has also improved, which happened on the second day of using and now it feels silky soft.”
Another customer raved: “I absolutely love this product! My skin is difficult to say the least. I suffer from breakouts and dry patches and finding a product that works no matter what stage my skin is in proved really difficult, anyway I’ve been using the generation skincare for a couple of months now and it has become a sure skincare essential, my breakouts are now almost non existent and flaky dull skin is a thing of the past! I would definitely recommend! Before and after pictures seen below are two weeks apart.”
