Five Benefits of Using Vitamin C

It is interesting how food which we eat are now slowly, but surely finding their way into our skincare products. Take Vitamin C for example. As we all know, Vitamin C, found in most citrus fruits, is an essential nutrient for human beings.

But instead of just consuming Vitamin C from fruits, Vitamin C skincare is now the new darling. Imagine looking radiant, having a more even skin tone and kissing dull skin goodbye. Now you can!

Here are five benefits of using a Vitamin C enriched skincare series. For more tips on skincare, ask me here.

Benefit 1: Enhance Radiance
Vitamin C helps to refresh the skin, even out skin tone and promote skin radiance and smoothness with regular use.
Benefit 2: Protect against Skin-Damaging Skin Radicals
Vitamin C is a well-known ingredient with powerful antioxidant properties that help skin look healthier by protecting it against harmful environmental elements, such as sun, pollution and cigarette smoke, which damage the structure and appearance of the skin. 
Benefit 3: Treat Skin Instantly 
Vitamin C, when applied directly to skin, is up to 20 times more effective in treating skin than when it is ingested through food or supplements, as it acts immediately to promote a natural, healthy glow. 
Benefit 4: Boost Collagen Production
As we age, our skin’s ability to replace damaged collagen decreases, causing skin to sag, wrinkle and appear dull. Vitamin C encourages the production of collagen in the skin, which gives skin its smooth, firm and healthy-looking appearance. 
Benefit 5: Decrease Pigmentation
Over-exposure to the sun can cause dark spots. Vitamin C has been shown to help fight hyperpigmentation by repressing melanin production, hence promoting a brighter complexion.
