If you’ve built a skincare routine of any kind, chances are that Vitamin C has made its way in there already.

Thanks to its radiance-boosting and brightening properties, it’s a firm favourite with skincare aficionados everywhere. Not just a superhero for facial skincare, the hero ingredient has some pretty impressive benefits for your body, scalp and hair too. 

Here’s some of the Vitamin-C rich products to put on your radar:


This wake-up call for your face contains a suits-all Vitamin C molecule that’s a total complexion game-changer. Say hello to vitamin C’s underdog cousin ‘MAP’ – or Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate to you and I. Just as hardworking, but without causing the irritation that can sometimes occur with regular vitamin C. 

Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate is the star ingredient of the Tired Faace Mask, loved for its skin-perking benefits. MAP is created by combining ascorbic acid (pure vitamin C) with a magnesium salt, to help improve its stability in water-based formulas. MAP is also lipophilic making it stable in oil-based formulas too. And it’s this which allows it to penetrate deeply into skin, offer greater hydration and even fights breakouts.

This potent mask packs a punch when it comes to perking up skin. Alongside a roster of skin brightening ingredients like vitamin C and lactic acid, Faace’s Tired Faace Mask contains a punchy 5% caffeine extract. 


It’s universally acknowledged that vitamin C is a true skincare superstar, but what benefit does it have for your locks? 

  • Helps fight bacteria on the scalp to ward off dandruff 
  • Helps to promote hair growth*

If there’s one ingredient you want to be reaching for when lathering in the shower, or moisturising your skin – it’s Vitamin C. The punchy vitamin not only hydrates skin, but can also boost circulation, help to heal surface damage and help to firm skin by encouraging collagen production. If the benefits didn’t help to sell this as an all-round skin superhero, then the fruity, tropical scents found in the likes of Guava and Orange certainly will!
