If you are looking to step up your skincare routine this year, Vitamin C is the product ingredient that does it all. Vitamin C can be found in many products, but most commonly it is used in serums. Regardless of your age or skin type, Vitamin C has many benefits that can help you achieve your skin goals.
Here are the top 3 reasons you should add Vitamin C to your product regimen:
Protects against the sun:
As an antioxidant, Vitamin C is a high performing skin care product that promotes the skin’s regeneration process and neutralizes what is known as free radicals that may be harmful to the skin. Free radicals are atoms missing an electron that are looking to steal an extra electron from another atom. This can lead to skin damage and wrinkles. An example of a free radical Vitamin C protects against is the sun’s UV rays. Though it is not a sunscreen substitute, Vitamin C can work in tandem with sunscreen to provide extra protection.
Evens out skin tone:
Vitamin C is known to reduce redness and inflammation to provide a more even skin tone. It contains properties that hinder melanin production in the skin which can cause dark spots and hyperpigmentation. If used topically on a consistent basis, Vitamin C can prevent the formation of dark spots in the first place, as well as fade ones that already exist. This helps give the skin a brighter and more youthful glow.
Prevents aging by promoting collagen production:
Collagen is a natural occurring protein that is important for the skin because it has properties that help plump, firm, and promote healing. Over time, collagen levels begin to deplete. Because Vitamin C boosts collagen production, it helps reduce skin sagging as well as the development of fine lines and wrinkles. The results are a more youthful complexion that stops premature aging.
