Most people know that vitamin C can be found in their morning glass of orange juice and helps to keep their immune system healthy.
But vitamin C has fast become a favourite addition to skincare routines for dermatologists and beauty influencers alike. And for good reason as it has lots of amazing benefits for your skin. But what are they and why should you start adding vitamin C to your skincare routine?
Benefits of Vitamin C
Vitamin C is a pretty extraordinary skincare ingredient with multiple benefits including:
Powerful antioxidant properties: One of the main benefits of vitamin c is its powerful antioxidant properties meaning it can protect the skin from everyday environmental stressors such as pollution and UV light. These all create free radicals (unstable molecules) in the skin that can cause dullness, wrinkles, and just general unwanted damage.
Vitamin C protects skin from these unwanted free radicals, keeping it healthy, glowing and even helping reduce signs of ageing. Jackpot!
Promoting The Production Of Collagen
Collagen is one of the main components in our skin, strengthening it and making it firm and gorgeously plump. Turns out vitamin c stimulates your body’s natural collagen production. In more technical terms, vitamin C synthesises collagen production so your body can make more.
However, as we get older both collagen and vitamin c levels tend to drop. This is where supplementing can help. Topping up your natural levels with daily vitamin C and collagen supplements to help keep your skin looking young, fresh, and juicy!
Reducing Hyperpigmentation & Brightening Skin
Another benefit of vitamin C is that it can actively reduce the appearance of unwanted dark spots by hindering melanin production, brightening the skin, and giving a more even complexion with extra glow.
Most dermatologists will tell you that vitamin C works best alongside other powerful antioxidants.
