Did you know Vitamin C works wonders on your skin? Why use Vitamin C in your skin care routine...for many reasons, but to start with, its completely natural!
First, lets cover the benefits. Vitamin C penetrates your skin to fight free radical damage caused by the environment. Wait...what? What does that mean? Its quite simple actually. Vitamin C is an antioxidant. If you like the science behind it, it means that vitamin C can donate electrons in order to neutralize free radicals created in skin after oxidative stress. Why is that important. Because oxidative stress = sun damage. So while vitamin C can't protect skin like an SPF can, it can minimize the damage you can't see. Or in non-techical terms, it naturally helps to strengthen your skin and repel things that could damage it.
It proves most beneficial to the skin around the face. For this reason, many people these days use skin-care products that contain vitamin C, such as concentrated vitamin C serums and creams that are designed for use on the sensitive facial skin.
It also helps to fade skin spots, stop inflammation and repair tired or lacklustre complexions. Because vitamin C can aid in the skin's ability to heal itself, it should be your go-to when looking to reduce red and brown spots. Add to that its anti-inflammatory properties (especially if you're struggling with acne or rosacea), and even-toned skin is in your very near future. So not only are you preventing damage with it; but now you're also fixing damage already done. Studies have found that high levels of Vitamin C can help to speed up the body's natural healing processes. This makes it ideal for use on the face and other areas of skin, as it can help to heal small cuts, acne scars, and other blemishes.
Vitamin C is also hailed as a wonder anti-ageing skincare ingredient as it acts as a great collagen booster, making skin look firmer and more luminous. Some research also shows that vitamin C can also increase the quality of the collagen created in the body. The fine lines and wrinkles that form with age are attacked with the regular use of vitamin C products. The Vitamin C helps boost collagen production in turn filling in the fine lines and wrinkles. As a result, you may find that you have more youthful looking skin without the need for any extreme cosmetic procedures! Vitamin C has also been found to help reduce the appearance of under-eye circles. This is great for those who are tired of trying to conceal the dark circles under their eyes and want to enjoy a more youthful and radiant appearance.
In addition to improving your skin's overall complexion, vitamin C can brighten dull skin, allowing it to look healthier and more vibrant. Strong concentrations of this vitamin leave the skin looking and feeling replenished and revitalized.
That means the right concentration of vitamin c is important. Most products should tell you how much of the ingredient they contain and, as a rule, potency between three and 20 per cent will be the most effective. So while it's easy to go out and find lotions, cremes, and other moisturizers at your local drug store that claim to contain vitamin C, it's important to realize that your skin needs a very high concentration of this vitamin in order to see results. This is why you're encouraged to use concentrated serums rather than a basic creme or lotion.
If you want to look like a 20-something well into your 40’s commit to using anti-aging vitamin C serum to help maintain a healthy, youthful complexion long into the future. It is ideal for women of all ages and skin types.
Vitamin C is best used as part of your morning skincare routine. But it can also be used at night too. The best way to use a topical vitamin C is to simply apply a small amount of it once or twice a day (depending on your skin type) to clean, dry skin. It should be applied before you begin applying your makeup (give it time to dry), but after you use your daily facial toner (should you choose to use one). From there, simply continue with your regular makeup and skin care routine.
And here's one more useful tip. Vitamin C loses it potency when exposed to air. So keep an eye on your packaging. Buy small bottles so you can use it all before it expires. Also look for opaque glass or plastic containers with a pump or some other air-restrictive device so you get the most for you money.
