Vitamin C, what is the fuss about and why does my skin need it?


Our skin is subjected to daily pollution and environmental factors that increase the production of free radicals, which in turn attacks the cells and cause skin damage leading to premature skin ageing and pigmentation issues.

Vitamin C is one of the POWERHOUSES that will help with this and targets every sign of skin ageing. However, contrary to popular belief, not all vitamin C are the same!


The AWARD winning AlumierMD Everactive C&E plus peptides is the most active form of vitamin C and contains 15% of L-Ascorbic Acid. L-Ascorbic Acid is one of the most bioavailable forms of vitamin C, which means that your skin is available to absorb and make use of the vitamin C whilst other types of vitamin C is not able to be penetrated deeper than the very superficial layer of the skin, making it quite pointless.




Some of the HERO ingredients in the AlumierMD EverActive C&E + Peptides includes:

  • L-Ascorbic Acid. L-Ascorbic acid is a powerful antioxidant that neutralises free radicals and protects cells from damage

  • Vitamin E: Is an intensely hydrating and fat-soluble vitamin that protects cell membranes and acts as an antioxidant, which strengthens the effect of the L-Ascorbic Acid four folded.

  • MATRIXYL™ Synthe'6™®: Derived from a peptide naturally found in collagen and laminins. Matrixyl Synthe 6 is a tripeptide that strengthens the skin and improves elasticity.

So to summarise vitamin C has amazing actions within your skin:

  • Powerful antioxidant that protects skin cells from UV damage

  • Promotes collagen production to give your skin bounce and reduce fine lines and wrinkles

  • Brightening the skin and fades hyperpigmentation by inhibiting melanin production

  • Reveals brighter, smoother and glowing complexion

Vitamin C is a crucial addition to your skin care regimen and should be something we all use, contact me to discuss further or if you want more details about how to make your skin radiant..
