We’re well into winter now and I’m sure most of you have taken at least one dose of Vitamin C so far this season. I don’t want to jinx it but I’m pretty sure my daily dose is what’s kept me sniffle-free so far.


As well as stimulating the immune system to fight your average cold, Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant

that has so many other crucial functions. Taken internally it can assist with fat metabolism and adrenal gland support (source), promote collagen production, improve wound healing and help fight oxidative stress within the body.

Applied topically, this little gem of a vitamin can improve collagen synthesis, help fight free radical damage and improve photo-damaged skin (source).

Vitamin C rich fruits, such as the berries of the sea buckthorn plant and rosehip, have been used to prevent premature ageing as far back as 600 AD.

Tried and tested throughout history as a go-to anti-ageing trick for many a wise beauty, this powerful remedy is still going strong today. Though there’s no need to sit at home crushing berries to smear on your face, there are some gorgeous serums and creams that will get the job done.

To experience the amazing benefits of Vitamin C try Snowberry’s Bright Defence Face Serum to combat free radical damage and glycation, two major factors in the ageing process. This Serum includes lots of VitaminC rich ingredients as well as clinically proven brightening agents to safely and effectively reduce melanin synthesis. A great product for nourishing, protecting and brightening the skin.

This could just be the perfect winter skin remedy!
