Vitamin C is one of the most popular and effective skincare ingredients out there, especially when it comes to anti-ageing and enhancing your skin’s natural glow. Let’s take a closer look at
What Vitamin C is and why you should add it into your routine ASAP.
What is Vitamin C?
Vitamin C (also known as L-Ascorbic acid) is a vitamin that the body can’t make itself. You have to either get it from your diet or apply it to your skin as a topical treatment. While eating a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals is important, there’s no guarantee that the necessary nutrients are going directly to your skin.
That’s why it makes sense to add some Vitamin C skincare into your routine. That way, you can make sure that it’s going straight to your skin, keeping it healthy and protected.
What does Vitamin C do for your skin?
Vitamin C is an antioxidant, meaning that it helps to protect your skin from damage and environmental stress like pollution, weather, smoking and chemicals. This is known as oxidative stress and is responsible for skin that looks tired, dull and shows signs of premature ageing.
It doesn’t just protect your skin either, Vitamin C actually helps to fight signs of ageing, as well as protecting your skin from damage that causes it. It helps to reduce the rate of the natural loss of collagen in the skin and boosts collagen production, meaning bouncy, plump and younger-looking skin. As well as this, Vitamin C helps to hydrate the skin, making fine lines and wrinkles look less noticeable, even around the eyes.
Vitamin C is also great for evening out your skin tone, reducing redness and improving the appearance of hyperpigmentation (also known as dark spots, age spots, melasma or sun spots) for a smoother, brighter complexion. As you get older, the effects of the sun’s rays can cause these patches of uneven pigmentation on the skin - Vitamin C can help to reverse those signs of damage.
In short, Vitamin C protects your skin, helps with signs of ageing, evens out your skin tone and adds glow back to dull skin.
