Three Product Must-Haves to Revitalise Dull, Lifeless Skin

Vitamin C products are especially good if you are suffering from dull, tired, lifeless skin. 


Vitamin C is needed for the growth and repair of tissues and because the body does not store Vitamin C in its tissue, we need to consume it on a regular basis. When we consume Vitamin C by way of absorption into the skin, we can see some of the amazing effects it has on our bodies from the visible exterior benefits.

It is a powerful and effective antioxidant that protects our body from free radicals that cause oxidative stress. We also need Vitamin C in the body to produce collagen which gives us that plumper, fuller, younger looking skin. 


I got my hands on this brand new Vitamin C Instant Glow Enhancer from The Body Shop. I have been a fan of their Vitamin C products for quite some time, being an avid user of the Vitamin C Microdermabrasion Scrub once weekly and between uses I use the Vitamin C Facial Cleansing Polish. 

The Vitamin C Instant Glow Enhancer is a tinted moisturisers/ balm that instantly revitalises the skin. The cream is an orangey/rosy colour and when applied to the face it gives skin an instant sun-kissed glow. Apply a pea-sized amount onto fingertips and massage into skin. Use in the morning after applying your moisturiser and re-apply throughout the day if you need to touch up any areas that have dulled out. 


I have also been using the Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser which boosts radiance and refines the texture of your skin for smoother, softer-feeling skin. This moisturiser will be extremely beneficial to you if your skin is especially fatigued after the winter months and will boost it right on time for summer. Apply a generous amount onto fingertips and massage into the skin. Similarly to the benefits of the Instant Glow Enhancer, this product will revitalise dull, tired, grumpy skin and give it that JLO glow that is so sought after.  

Those two are newbies to my ever growing collection of skincare but for a couple of years, as I mentioned, I have been using the Vitamin C Microdermabrasion Scrub once weekly but on the day to day, I use the Vitamin C Facial Cleansing Polish.  


This daily radiance-revealing facial wash cleanses and exfoliates the skin in one step. The micro beads gently buff away dull skin cells which enhances the skins natural radiance. Skin is left feeling fresh and smooth. All in all, if your skin is really in need of some TLC just before the summer I would recommend them as a three-step routine for about four-six weeks and you should notice a huge difference. 

Here is how I apply:

  • Step 1: Vitamin C Facial Cleansing Polish
  • Step 2: Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser
  • Step 3: Vitamin C Instant Glow Enhancer

All of the Vitamin C products also have an amazing zesty, fresh, orangey fragrance and skin feels and smells amazing after use, not to mention how plump and bright my skin looks after use!
