Nowadays, vitamin C is also present in a host of skincare products, promising clients’ protection against free radicals, the elimination of wrinkles and, to top it off, a gorgeous, radiant complexion. Discover our favourite vitamin C skincare products below and find out how they can be incorporated into your treatments or retail offering to provide clients with a healthy, youthful completion.

Face masks

Arguably the most popular skincare product of the year so far, sheet masks are a fast, easy way to instantly refresh the skin. With both BeautyPro and Skin Republic offering masks infused with vitamin C, clients can make the most of a brighter complexion, as well an even skin tone. Both masks diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as create a smooth, even skin finish. A great addition to your retail offering or an easy, simple way to update your salon service, these effective sheet masks are worth mentioning to clients hoping to add radiance to their skin.


A great alternative to classic cream moisturisers, gels are fast becoming a favourite within the world of beauty, with vitamin C being a key ingredient in many. The protective, moisturising vitamin C gel from SBC will revive and refresh neglected skin, ideal for keen sunbathers or smokers. With a light, non-sticky consistency, this gel is comfortable to apply and fights free radicals to encourage cellular health and growth. This vitamin c gel can be used with both galvanic and microcurrent machines but can also be used within a manual facial.

Base products

With many clients aiming to achieve a dewy, radiant base, why not recommend a foundation or CC cream that contains vitamin C. Sleek MakeUP’s CC cream features the popular vitamin, as well as SPF29, enabling clients to create a gorgeous, natural base look whilst protecting their skin. Nourishing vitamin C also works to add moisture to the skin and will help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, while improving the elasticity of the skin. Available in a selection of shades, this CC cream is a worthy addition to your professional make-up supplies, as well as your retail offering.
