Get that photo finish skin: 5 reasons to use Vitamin CNews
If you are a responsible adult, who doesn’t live solely on cheese-its and McDonalds, you probably have a decent Vitamin C intake via your diet. Of course, this is good for your skin - but it could be a lot more targeted. Using skincare products that contain Vitamin C can be a great way to really ensure your skin truly enjoys one of the best skin-saving ingredients on the market. But why is vitamin C so important for my skin, you ask? No worries, simply read on to find out the 5 reasons why it deserves a spot in your beauty routine.
1. Smooth operator
Vitamin C is the key to maintaining a smooth and glowy complexion. Serums with Vitamin C are acidic, meaning dead skin cells are removed from the skin surface. Think of it as a super mild peeling. Goodbye dullness, hello healthy glow!
2. When red is not your fave
Don’t get us wrong - we love the colour red. Deep red lipstick or a bright red dress; we can all agree that it almost always has a sensual vibe to it. But, when it comes to our skin tone, redness isn’t at the top of our wishlist. Good thing for us Vitamin C is known for its ability to treat a variety of inflammatory skin conditions. That’s not all: due to the pro-collagen and pro-elastin effects of vitamin C, acne scars may also be reduced. So lather it on, and see the redness fade away.
3. Hyperpigmentation no more
We think it’s safe to say that everyone will experience one form or another of hyperpigmentation. Whether it’s sunspots, an irregular skin tone, or age spots: it’s almost a given you’ll, unfortunately, endure this at least once in your life. Most hyperpigmentation occurs when there is an overproduction of melanin. Vitamin C can help reduce melanin production and in turn, reduce the amount of hyperpigmentation. You’ll see that darker spots lighten up over time and your complexion get more and more even. Yup, we tend to get a little bit hyper about this.
4. Slurp and burp
You’re not the only one who gets thirsty sometimes - your skin can use some hydration too. And guess what? Vitamin C can help your skin with this too! Vitamin C serums contain magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, which has a hydrating effect on the skin. It locks down those vitamins while sealing in the moisture. Apply some Vitamin C to your face, lean back, and sip that juice (without the gin, you guys) - it’s time for that 360 degree, moisturizing experience.
5. No need for a time machine
Last but not least, Vitamin C is also well known for its abilities to reduce premature ageing.
Vitamin C can help keep your skin smooth by preventing wrinkles caused by sun damage. It also stimulates the growth of collagen, a protein which provides structure and elasticity to the skin. Warning: you might have to show your ID again when buying those bottles of Merlot at the supermarket.
