Vitamin C For Your Skin:
Vitamin C is proven to stimulate collagen production and is most effective in serums so it can penetrate the skin’s outer barrier. When used effectively, it leaves the skin plump, diminishes fine lines, and gives you a youthful glow. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant so it protects skin cells from damage caused by UV exposure.
Your Morning Dose of Vitamin C:
Incorporate Vitamin C into your skincare regimen every morning. Morning is recommended as the antioxidant helps to protect your skin from things like pollution and UV light, which you're exposed to throughout the day. A good routine is to cleanse, tone, apply a vitamin C serum, moisturize, and apply sunscreen.
Can I Use Vitamin C with sensitive skin?
Vitamin C is very safe, but if you have sensitive skin, it may sting. Especially if you use it during the same part of your routine as exfoliating scrubs or acids. It depends on your skin type and routine, so it’s helpful to test it first on a small area and see how your skin responds.
Vitamin C for sunburns?
In addition to minimizing redness, vitamin C accelerates cell turnover. By doing so, it replaces the damaged cells with healthy new ones. This accelerates the healing process of the burn.
Vitamin C for Hyperpigmentation and Acne Scars:
Hyperpigmentation like sun spots or acne scars respond to Vitamin C because it limits melanin production and increases the synthesis of collagen. This fades dark spots, rebuilds skin structure, and can even out the tone of your skin’s complexion.
