We are always told to take in more vitamin c for our body through our diet as it is said to significantly reduce the risk of chronic diseases, reduce high blood pressure, and prevent heart diseases. But not many are aware of what vitamin c does for our skin! Here some benefits of what it helps with:
#1 Brightens and even out skin tone
The main benefit of vitamin c lies in its ability to give your skin a revitalising glow like never before! It helps to stimulate the production of collagen and prevents free radical damage caused by external aggressors like UV rays and pollution or even cigarette smoke.
This boost of collagen can help to iron out wrinkles and fine lines, and give a much youthful appearance than before. It also helps to plump up the skin by increasing elasticity and firming it up, making it bouncier and more supple, as opposed to dull, sagging skin.
Vitamin c in skincare products that also inhibit the production of melanin, which reduces dark spots and fades hyperpigmentation, giving rise to an even skin texture and tone!
#2 Protect against harmful UV rays
Vitamin c also works and pairs extremely well with your sunscreen, as it helps to add another layer of protection against sun damage, just in case they escape through the first layer of defence! Additionally, vitamin c can stop free radical damage. To delve into a more scientific explanation, free radicals caused by most sun damage are extremely unstable as they are missing one electron which they then ‘steal’ from other cells and damage their structure. This causes premature ageing quickly. When vitamin c enters the picture, it is rich in antioxidants, which means it is able to neutralise these free radicals and eradicate their threat to your skin.
#3 Speed up healing process
Another benefit of vitamin c is to aid in recovery of wounds. The new and upcoming trend in skincare is the addition of exosomes. Exosomes are medical-grade ingredients that are usually more common in the aesthetic clinics scene, especially using it as treatment to repair damaged skin tissues after invasive procedures like microneedling. When used together in a vitamin c serum, they can increase the speed of healing and skin repair.
