Why is Vitamin C good for your skin?
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that is able to neutralize the damage of UV rays from sun exposure, fades dark spots or dark circles under your eyes, and exfoliates unwanted, discolored skin. You can expect to improve your overall skin’s complexion with adding in Vitamin C based products to your skincare routine. Everyone’s all about eating foods that are enriched with antioxidant properties, yet Vitamin C is the topical version of that. And because it's so versatile, it's for everyone.
What does Vitamin C do exactly?
- Vitamin C is a known skin brightener, so it's great if you're looking to fade dark spots, get rid of acne scars, even out your skin tone, or lighten dark under eyes. That's because it inhibits your skin's melanin production, so using it daily can even help prevent dark spots from forming in the first place.
- When Vitamin C is applied topically to your skin, your body goes into repair mode which accelerates healthy collagen production, cell production and elastin. This healing process can thicken your dermis with new skin and decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles/ prevents them in the future. It reduces inflammation and irritation, while naturally revitalizing the facial areas that have greater chances of premature aging.
- Vitamin C is an antioxidant, (what does that mean exactly?) well it means it protects skin cells from damaging free radicals* caused by UV exposure and pollution. Soooo, basically adding this antioxidant protective layer to your skin helps keep your cells healthy and products against aging.
- For best results, the most efficient way to deliver vitamin C is straight into your skin with a potent, targeted serum. Using a serum is more beneficial because it's high concentration and quick absorbing properties. However, there are many ways that you can take in the benefits of Vitamin C.
