Why Your Skin Needs Vitamin C

Hello Beauties!

We’ve all heard for years how essential Vitamin C is when it comes to staving off the common cold and keeping our immune systems in tip top shape. A glass of orange juice and a serving of broccoli at dinner can do your body good from the inside out…but did you know that Vitamin C is a powerhouse when it comes to skin care too? 

Vitamin C has been shown to be an essential ingredient for battling almost all skin care concerns, mostly due to its natural antioxidant capabilities. As we’ve discussed before, antioxidants help to neutralize free-radicals in your system caused by pollution, lifestyle and naturally occuring conditions. Vitamin C helps to aid in your skins’ natural regeneration process, including repairing damaged skin cells, which means more youthful looking skin for you! 

Smoother Skin

The high acidity composition of Vitamin C makes this ingredient excellent for helping you to achieve smoother skin. When used topically, Vitamin C triggers the skins’ acceleration in producing collagen and elastin, resulting in skin that looks plumper and feels firmer. When you give Vitamin C a permanent place on your vanity, you’ll be helping to ward off the signs of premature aging every day. 

Brighter Skin 

When topically applied, Vitamin C has been shown to help inhibit your skins’ melanin production. This is good news for anyone with hyperpigmentation, including sun spots, dark spots and melasma. With use over time, Vitamin C’s brightening properties can stop new spots from forming in the first place, making this one of our favorite preventative ingredients. It should be noted though that those with sensitive skin may experience irritation from high doses of topical Vitamin C, so be sure to proceed with caution and do a small patch test first.

Protected Skin

Perhaps best of all, Vitamin C has been shown to help guard skin from damaging UV rays and sun exposure, making this ingredient even more important to your overall care. Vitamin C has been shown to help thicken the dermis layer, helping give your skin added sun protection. A skin care routine rich in Vitamin C should not be considered as a replacement for sunscreen or SPF protection, so be sure to enjoy the sun with care!

Halloween is just around the corner, and even though you probably won’t be attending any large gatherings, you’re still planning to wear an awesome costume for your Instagram photos. Unfortunately, your skin might not love your look as much as you do.
