Effective and extremely popular, Vitamin C is one skin care ingredient that has continued to gain momentum in the past few years. From anti-ageing to brightening properties, Vitamin C has multiple benefits and can be applied through different products.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and essential nutrient that helps rebuild and restore tissue damage, but is one the human body does not produce on its own. Naturally, Vitamin C is found in fruits and vegetables, such as guavas, bell peppers, strawberries, oranges and tomatoes.

However, the topical application of Vitamin C has proven to give quicker results for brighter, smoother skin.


Facilitates the production of collagen: Collagen is an important protein that helps give our skin elasticity and therefore, keeps it smooth and supple. Applying Vitamin C regularly can boost the production of collagen, giving you healthy skin.

Brightens the skin: Vitamin C seeps into the skin’s dermal layer to give you visibly brighter, glowing skin with regular use.

Protects against environmental stressors: By fighting against free radicals from pollution and ultraviolet light, which cause dullness, pigmentation and wrinkles, Vitamin C protects the skin and reduces or delays visible signs of skin ageing.

Boosts the efficacy of sunscreen: It’s well known that the UVA and UVB rays from the sun and blue from smart devices cause damage to the skin. While wearing sunscreen is absolutely imperative for skin protection, you can significantly boost your sunscreen’s efficacy by adding a layer of Vitamin C. Studies show that by neutralizing the attack of free radicals, topically applied Vitamin C can reduce the damage caused by UV rays by up to 60%.

Reduces dark spots and pigmentation: With continued use, Vitamin C can significantly reduce the appearance of dark spots, pigmentation redness and patches on your skin, giving you an even tone.


Cleanser: Cleansing is the first step to a healthy skin care routine and choosing a face wash with Vitamin C in it will bring you closer to glowing skin. The Vivphil Cleansing Lotion is a cleanser that helps remove surface debris, addresses signs of ageing and gives you healthy, even-toned skin.

Serum: The most popular way to topically apply Vitamin C is with a serum. A serum should be applied after toning and before moisturizing, and adding a serum to your routine has many benefits. The Skivaan Face Serum consists of two highly stable forms of Vitamin C which work together to provide long-term stability and higher protection. It enhances the skin’s natural defense system to brighten, firm and help dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Moisturizer: Hydration is a key element of a skin care regime for healthy skin and adding Vitamin C to this step has many advantages, such as more protection and better nourishment. The SWY Moisturizing Lotion provides  hours of nonstop hydration and protects your skin from environmental assault. The formula locks in moisture and protects the skin, and the Vitamin C brightens the skin for a natural glow.

Your guide to summer skin care for glowing skin

It’s almost Summer, wasting no time in turning us into puddles of sweat.

As you sweat through every pore and try to get through the day working from home, no longer safe in the cocoon of your centrally air-conditioned office, it’s time to switch up your skin care game.

Summer skin care is a completely different beast from a winter regime, and the combination of the weather and the sun can have a harsh effect on your skin. So, we’re here to tell you what to prioritise, how to find the best combination of products and settle on a routine that suits your skin type.

Best Face Washes for Men and Women

Summer means more dust and pollution, and a lot more sweat, which can often clog your pores, trapping the dirt inside. This, as we all know by now, leads to blackheads, breakouts and acne, and generally affects the health of your skin.

To avoid this, ensure you follow a regular skin care routine that includes cleansing your face at least twice a day. Remember to use Skivaan Face Wash, whether dry, oily or combination, sensitive, or ageing and pigmented. Instead of sticking to your usual CTM (cleanse, tone, moisturise) regime, amp it up to a double cleanse routine to make sure you’re as thorough as can be. Summer makes our skin oilier than usual so this one will help remove the excess sebum produced by your skin. Start by using a precleans to remove the dust, dirt and makeup, following it up with a second cleanser that suits your skin type.

Exfoliate Regularly

That exfoliating regularly causes harm to your skin is a myth. During summer, it’s ever so important to rid your skin of the extra sebum, dirt, comedones, or blackheads as we call them, and dead cells, so exfoliation is highly recommended. This step helps unclog your pores to avoid breakouts and acne. Just ensure you choose one that is gentle and non-abrasive. The rice bran extract in the Daily Microfoliant is gentle enough to use daily, leaving you with visibly brighter, smoother skin.

Moisturize Your Skin

Just like our bodies need extra hydration during the summer, so does our skin. Because we tend to sweat a lot and our skin becomes oily in the warmer months, many of us believe that it needs no moisture, but this is far from the truth. Sweat dehydrates your skin, which can then cause concerns like dullness, dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles. Make sure you continue to moisturize your skin every day, but switch to a water gel moisturizer, like the Dermalogica Calm Water Gel Moisturizer, that your skin will absorb more effectively, without leaving a heavy, sticky feeling. Of course, don’t forget the crucial step of toning before lathering on your moisturizer.

Sunscreen All the Way

You’ve probably heard this enough, but there is no such thing — sunscreen is sacrosanct, no matter what time of the year it is. Broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or SPF 50 provides a protective shield between you and the harmful UV rays the beautiful sun emits, so while you need to get in your Vitamin D, you also need to protect yourself from dark spots, skin ageing, discoloration, or worse. In fact, you must continue to apply sunscreen even if you’re working from home — you have windows, right? Ensure that you are picking a sunscreen that is either suitable for all skin types or is specific to your skin needs — be it oily or dry. UVLYFT not only protects your skin, but also enhances your skin’s natural luminosity without leaving behind any white residue. It’s a win-win!

Adult Acne vs Teen Acne: all you need to know

Acne is no fun – at any age. But knowing how it arises in your teen vs. adult years can help you stay in the clear.

Teen acne

Teens typically break out on the face, chest and back. Such breakouts often arise because androgens, the “male” hormones that both guys and girls have, surge during adolescence, causing excess production of sebum (oil).

The good news is that teens have faster cell turnover and more resilient skin than adults, which means they recover faster from breakouts. After the teenage years, acne tends to improve because teen hormonal changes have leveled off and no longer fuel breakouts.

How to Treat Teen Acne

  • Focus on learning and maintaining good skin care habits because you will be more prone to acne in the future.
  • Avoid products that contain harsh, inexpensive and comedogenic (pore-clogging) ingredients. Stripping ingredients such as Alcohol – commonly found in astringent toners – can cause skin to produce more oil, fueling even more breakouts. Artificial fragrances and colors can also further irritate breakout-prone skin.
  • Look for ingredients like Salicylic Acid and Benzoyl Peroxide to keep dead skin cells and bacteria from accumulating.
  • Moisturize daily – even if your skin seems oily (use an oil-free moisturizer) – to help balance sebum production.

Adult acne

Thought you could outgrow acne? If only. Chronic stress and the varied hormonal changes of adulthood can throw adrenal glands into overdrive, which in turn can boost sebum production, setting the stage for acne development.

Adults also tend to have more inflammatory acne, with lesions predominantly located around the mouth, chin and jaw line. Treating adult acne can be challenging because adults also tend to face skin dryness, sensitivity and signs of aging.

How to Treat Teen Acne

  • Focus on spot treatment and balancing the skin, as well as making sure your other skin care needs are met.
  • Avoid “picking” or “squeezing” breakouts at home, which can result in more breakouts, scarring or redness. Instead, see a professional skin therapist for an extraction.
  • Skin can lose its ability to retain moisture with age. Avoid over-drying skin by choosing products that contain non-drying ingredients such as Salicylic Acid or Glycolic Acid to help remove dead skin cells, excess oil and dirt, as well as Colloidal Silver to control bacteria.
  • If you’re combatting signs of skin aging, Retinol – a wrinkle-smoothing ingredient – can also work well to help prevent acne breakouts.
