Vitamin C Deserves a Starring Role in Every Skincare Regimen - Here’s Why!
When you hear about Vitamin C, you might think of a field of orange trees. But did you know Vitamin C is an excellent addition to every skincare routine, too? One of the most clinically proven and studied skincare ingredients, it offers a wide range of benefits and can even be suitable for sensitive skin. In other words, every single person who wants beautiful, healthy skin should invest in Vitamin C skin care.
Why Is Vitamin C So Great?
Vitamin C is a natural antioxidant, which means it has the ability to protect your skin from the effects of UV damage. It is also able to promote the production of collagen which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. If that wasn’t enough, Vitamin C can also help balance your skin tone by reducing the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation anywhere on your skin.
When paired with other antioxidants including ferulic acid and Vitamin E, the benefits of Vitamin C are maximized. These combinations help your body absorb and utilize Vitamin C properly, giving you a boost when it comes to brighter skin and a more balanced complexion.
Various clinical studies have been done on the benefits of Vitamin C, and it was found that when used as part of a daily skincare regimen over the course of 12 weeks, Vitamin C was able to reduce the visual appearance of coarse wrinkles on the face, neck, and upper chest. Pigmentation was also more balanced and both sunspots and age spots were visibly reduced in tone.
Hydration With the Vital C Collection
In addition to helping your skin fight off visible damage caused by ultraviolet light, and reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, Vitamin C can also be used as part of a hydrating skincare regimen. If you suffer from occasional dry skin, flaky skin, or are prone to chronic skin dehydration, using one of the following skincare products may help in restoring the moisture your skin so desperately wants.
