Vitamin C is one of the most effective anti-aging skin care products on the market. Skin specialists rave about its ability to make the skin look fresh and glowy. It has a multitude of benefits and health properties. Read on to learn all about why you should add Vitamin C to your skin care routine.
Topical vitamin C is made with antioxidants that can help protect the skin from UV damage. Although it can’t be used in place of sunscreen as it doesn’t block UV radiation, it can add an extra layer of protection if any harmful rays make it to your skin.
Hyperpigmentation is a condition where patches of the skin are darker than the rest of the skin. These include age spots, sun spots, and other discoloration. Vitamin C helps reduce the overproduction of melanin in these regions and thus even out the skin tone.
One of the biggest draws of Vitamin C is its anti-aging properties. When used regularly, it can diminish wrinkles and fine lines, and help prevent the formation or deepening of more.
Collagen is the natural protein in your skin that keeps it strong and taut. As we age, our body begins to produce less of it, which is why our skin can start to sag over time. The use of topical Vitamin C encourages collagen growth, lifting and adding volume to our skin.
Topical Vitamin C can help fade scars, sores, or other injuries on your skin. By promoting collagen growth, the skin can heal more quickly by growing new, healthy layers.
When choosing your Vitamin C, you will have best results when the percentage is between 10 and 20. Make sure to use it after cleanser and toner in the morning. Combine it with other products like Hyaluronic acid, Niacinamide, or Vitamin E for even better results.
