With vitamin C being one of the few proven anti-ageing skincare ingredients, most people would agree that it is a wonder ingredient when it comes to encouraging collagen production, improving signs of sun damage and scarring, as well as helping to defend against environmental damage caused by free radicals.
But with vitamin C coming in many different forms of skincare, it can be confusing choosing the right product for you.
Below, BD has rounded up some of the best vitamin C products for brighter, radiant and more youthful looking skin.
