WHAT IS VITAMIN C AND HOW DOES IT BENEFIT SKIN?
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and has many health benefits. Well known for its ability to boost immune systems and help recovery from colds and flu but did you know that Vitamin C can seriously enhance your skincare ritual?
As the Insider Health article by Toketemu Ohwovoriole points out “Vitamin C is an antioxidant that can benefit all skin types and is one of the best vitamins for your skin. It has numerous benefits, including helping with anti-aging and reversing some of the damage done to your skin by radiation from the sun.”
Vitamin C should be applied directly to your skin and the powerful benefits include boosting collagen production, improving hydration, brightening your complexion and protection from sun damage.
1. COLLAGEN PRODUCTION
Your body produces the collagen protein to use a building block for bones, skin and muscle. It is the most abundant protein in your body. Collagen help skin cells renew and repair themselves. Collagen production is tied to skin elasticity and firmness meaning the protein can reduce skin wrinkles and help prevent sagging. Applying a vitamin C serum can boost collagen production, resulting in smooth and improved skin texture.
2. IMPROVED HYDRATION
Vitamin C naturally hydrates your skin by helping the cells to retain water preventing it from becoming dry or too oily. Water retention is needed for your skin to remain healthy and strengthen the immune properties. Well hydrated skin will appear plump and healthy, helping to reduce fine lines and giving skin that youthful glow.
3. BRIGHTER COMPLEXION
Vitamin C helps repair skin cells and improves hydration, resulting in brighter skin tone and texture. It also can help fade hyperpigmentation and smooth skin’s surface to reduce dullness. Hyperpigmentation (discoloration of the skin, age spots) can be reduced by Vitamin C as it promotes renewal and repair of skin cells promoting healthy-looking and #VIBERANT skin.
