Vitamin C and Why it Deserves a Spot in Your Skincare Routine

We are all familiar with Vitamin C and where to get it in our diets but Vitamin C can also be a powerful skincare ingredient. While consuming Vitamin C is still good for you, there are added benefits to incorporating it into your skincare routine. Applying Vitamin C to the skin allows it to better absorb directly into the top layers of the skin. Also, Vitamin C is available in various different products and deliveries but Vitamin C Serums typically are more concentrated and thus more effective. 

How Does It Work?

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, that neutralizes free radicals, which aids in your skin’s natural regeneration process, helping your body to repair damaged skin cells. This process helps defend your skin against damage from pollution, UV damage, and can heal scars.

Vitamin C also works to accelerate the production of collagen and elastin, these two protein fibres keep the skin plump and firm. So, Vitamin C causing the promotion of collagen helps prevent signs of ageing. Not only that but Vitamin C works to elevate and prevent dark spots and hyperpigmentation by slowing down melanin production. 

How to Use Vitamin C Serums

Vitamin C Serums are best used after cleansing the skin and before moisturizers so the application is easily absorbed. Some dermatologists also suggest applying Vitamin C in the morning, to utilize its UV protection powers.

When using Vitamin C, It’s also important to exfoliate regularly, as it makes it easier for the product to penetrate into the deeper layers of skin. Be sure to store your Vitamin C Serum in a dry, dark and cool place as light and heat will break down the product faster.
