Have you got the juice?

We’ve been utilising vitamin C in our serums for yonks and now it’s time to utilise its transformative powers in the battle against tired eyes.
Vitamin C is basically a high-ranking marine that’s armed with antioxidant-rich properties that make it the ingredient for protecting skin against free radicals and UV damage. It even helps your SPF do its job better, preventing premature ageing and minimising the appearance of any visible signs of ageing you may currently be experiencing.
We’re talking a minimisation of pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and a brighter, more even-toned under-eye area – all with just some regular attention from a dedicated vitamin C-infused eye cream formula, people.
Do yourself a favour and invest – here are eight vitamin C eye creams to choose from.
SATURDAY SKIN Yuzu Vitamin C Bright Eye Cream
This eye cream combines vitamin C-rich yuzu extract and niacinamide to create the ultimate brightening formula for tackling dark circles, smoothing fine lines around the eyes and preventing moisture loss.
