Vitamin C is touted as an important nutrient for our immune system and overall health. But do you know the benefits of Vitamin C for our skin? There is no guarantee that you can reap these benefits through the food you eat, so below we will discuss the importance of adding a Vitamin C serum to your skin care regimen.
1. Brightens complexion: Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, can brighten the skin. When used topically, Vitamin C can help fade dark spots, hyper-pigmentation and provide a youthful glow to your overall complexion, by impeding melanin production.
2. Prevents sun damage: Vitamin C is an antioxidant and can protect your skin against
“free radicals” such as sun damage.
3. Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles: Vitamin C promotes collagen production through a process called “collagen synthesis”. With a boost in collagen, it can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
4. Prevents sagging skin: Vitamin C can prevent sagging skin, due to the boost in collagen it provides, it can give the appearance of more toned skin.
Vitamin C serums are safe for almost all skin types, however you should always perform a patch test before trying a new product. You can use Vitamin C in the morning or at night, but be sure to apply the serum before a moisturizer.
