When it comes to vitamins that are packed with the most benefits, the vitamin referred to as ‘C’ always takes the cake. The antioxidant-rich vitamin is not only beneficial to the body, but also to skin! Here are some Vitamin C benefits that show why you should incorporate into your skin care routine.
Vitamin C is well-known for its antioxidant properties and has been dubbed the “secret weapon” of skin experts of all ages. This nutrient has the ability to rebuild the DNA in your skin at the cellular level. Hence this increases collagen production and repairs UV damage.
Reverses the effects of the sun
Prolonged exposure to the sun has a detrimental effect on the skin, resulting in sun spots, roughness, fine lines, flaky skin. Vitamin C applied topically protects your skin from UV damage and repairs damaged skin cells.
Softens and supplies the skin
Did you know Vitamin C has the ability to retain water and can help keep your skin from becoming excessively oily or dry? Applying a cream or moisturizer containing Vitamin C will help keep your skin moisturized for an extended period of time, keeping it soft and supple.
4. Melanin Production
Vitamin C application, particularly at night, may inhibit the production of tyrosinase (an enzyme that contributes to melanin production).
Doesn’t irritate the skin
Vitamin C products are simple to incorporate into your current skincare routine due to their gentle nature and suitability for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
