Vitamin C is known as one of the best anti-ageing ingredients on the market — and the key to maintaining a smooth, even, and glowy complexion.
Although you’re probably getting vitamin C in your diet, there’s no way to guarantee that it’s going straight to your skin, so here's why you should use a vitamin C serum.
Vitamin C has a hydrating effect on your skin. It decreases transepidermal water loss, allowing your skin to retain moisture better.
2. It's safe for most skin types.
Most people and skin types can use topical vitamin C for an extended period without experiencing any adverse reactions.
3. It's brightening
Vitamin C can smooth the surface of the skin to give a more youthful glow.
4. It can even out your skin tone
Vitamin C can help with fading any pigmentation and can be used to treat many inflammatory conditions and fade redness.
5. Helps fade hyperpigmentation
Vitamin C application has proven to reduce melanin which can help fade dark spots, sun spots and age spots for an even complexion.
6. Reduces under-eye circles
These serums can help smooth out fine lines by plumping and hydrating the under-eye area and alleviating any discolouration.
7. Promotes collagen production.
Vitamin C is well known for boosting collagen, which can help prevent the effects of early ageing. When your collagen levels begin to drop, your skin may start to sag.
8. Protects against sun damage.
Vitamin C is rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants protect healthy skin cells by “giving” these free radicals an electron, rendering them harmless.
9. Boosts wound healing
Vitamin C application can speed up the healing process. Healthy wound healing reduces your risk of inflammation, infection, and scarring.
