Vitamin C is a current skincare trend and for good reason. The multifunctioning skin-boosting vitamin should be an essential staple in your skincare regime for a radiant, youthful, and luminous glow.
The ability of Vitamin C doesn’t stop there! There is an extensive list of skin-benefiting factors when you incorporate this hardworking ingredient into your daily routine. So what exactly are they?
1. Protects against antioxidants
Vitamin C acts as a shield to enclose the skin cell and protect the skin from everyday pollutants, UV exposure and general environmental factors. Without protection, these factors can lead to premature skin ageing and photosensitivity.
2. Elevates collagen production
Vitamin C ramps up its secretion of collagen to strengthen and rebuild the lower layers of the skin, giving it bounce and density. As a result of the vital work carried out by Vitamin C, the protection and production of collagen assists in maintaining a more youthful and firmer appearance.
3. Restores an uneven skin tone
Did you know this clever vitamin can suppress the overproduction of melanin? Melanin is the pigment in our skin that acts as a natural UV protector, but an excess of melanin can create discolouration, pigmentation, uneven skin tone or age spots. Vitamin C suppresses the overproduction of melanin. A win-win for flooding the radiance back into your skin!
4. Heals the skin
Vitamin C combats post-inflammatory activity that may cause the skin to display redness and inflammation. This reduces irritation at the source and promotes wound healing and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
How would we describe Vitamin C in one word? LIFESAVER.
