Vitamin C is a vital molecule for skin health and collagen production. Dietary and topical Vitamin C have beneficial effects on skin cells and some studies have shown that Vitamin C may help prevent and treat ultraviolet induced photo-damage.
1. Promotes Collagen production
Regular use of Vitamin C can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C is a rich antioxidant which helps boost the production of collagen. This collagen helps fill the fine lines and wrinkles. Making your skin plumper and more youthful in appearance.
2. Protects skin from sun damage
Vitamin C is a rich antioxidant. It naturally helps to strengthen your skin and helps protect your skin from damage from Ultraviolet A and Ultraviolet B rays. It does sometimes increase sun sensitivity, so make sure you use it along with a daily application of sunscreen.
3. Reduces dark circles under eyes
Vitamin C has been found to help with evening out skin tone and reducing the appearance of those dark circles under your eyes. (Take care with applying too close to the eye)
4. Speeds up the healing process
Studies have found that high levels will speed up the body's natural healing process. It can help heal acne scars and blemishes on the face and the décollete.
5. Reduces discolouration
Regular usage of Vitamin C is great for reducing redness and other discolouration of the skin. Regular use may help to achieve a more even skin tone.
6. Youthful looking skin
With the regular use of Vitamin C you can help your skin look younger for longer. Collagen production is stimulated, filling out fine lines, wrinkles and reducing sagging skin, but there is the added benefit of evening out the skin tone and brightening your complexion.
7. Increases hydration
The topical application of Vitamin C directly to your skin will allow it to take advantage of the high concentration of Vitamin C the skin needs to improve overall hydration. This principle can be applied to all areas of the body that suffer from dry flaky skin (even though you have used other moisturisers).
8. Inflammation reduction
Vitamin C will help with inflammation around the eye and any other areas on your face. If you suffer from puffiness around this delicate eye area, a gentle application will help (a little amount is all you need).
9. Brighter skin
Application of Vitamin C will improve the skin's overall complexion by making it appear brighter, radiant and healthier. Regular usage will leave the skin looking and feeling revitalised and nourished.
10. Speeds up healing of sunburn
In addition to protecting your skin from sun damage, Vitamin C can also be effective in helping to speed up the healing of sunburn. Vitamin C helps promote healing and thus reduces the redness and itching associated with sunburn.
