LEARN WHY VITAMIN C IS SO POWERFUL & WHY YOUR SKIN NEEDS IT

Topical Vitamin C

One of the ways that our skin keeps itself renewed and youthful-looking is through the production of collagen.

As we age, our skin naturally produces less collagen. Losing collagen can result in more advanced signs of skin aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness, sagging and more.

Vitamin C can help support the synthesis of collagen, which may result in the appearance of younger, plumper, firmer-looking skin.

If your skin is prone to redness, Vitamin C may be a good choice. It is an anti-oxidant and helps to calm skin and protect you from free radicals. Vitamin C is also a skin brightening agent. Topical Vitamin C can help brighten your complexion and achieve youthful, healthy looking skin.

Keeping moisture in your skin is an important part of your daily skin care routine. Vitamin C can help skin retain moisture. Add a few drops of Vitamin C serum into your moisturizer to keep skin even more soft and supple.

As a potent antioxidant, topical Vitamin E may help defend against the visible signs of skin aging.

Vitamin E oil can also help improve skin hydration and help support cellular turnover. If you’re using Vitamin E as part of your daily skin care routine, Vitamin C can help stabilize it.

Vitamin C is also important for healthy skin because it supports your UV protective defenses.

Cumulative exposure to the sun’s rays can have immediate effects such as sunburn, plus long-term effects including premature skin aging and skin cancer.

With daily use of a broad spectrum sunscreen with a SPF 30 or higher, the addition of Vitamin C serum to your daily routine can help your skin defend itself against further damage.
