The Benefits Of Vitamin C For Your Skin

Vitamin C isn’t just for your immune system, it also plays an important role in maintaining healthy skin. This powerful antioxidant, when applied topically, has the power to both protect and repair your skin. If you haven’t already added it to your skincare routine, we recommend doing so. Choosing the right formulation is important, but when you do you can truly maximize the benefits of Vitamin C.

Why Do We Need Vitamin C?

This important vitamin is required for the body to function optimally. In fact, you may have heard of scurvy – a disease that results from a severe deficiency of Vitamin C that often affected early seafarers that had minimal access to fresh fruits (like citrus) for long periods of time. Humans cannot function without it, and you must consume it through food. But while your body is busy using up the Vitamin C you eat daily, very little actually makes it to the skin. For skin health, it’s best to apply Vitamin C topically through a serum.

How Does It Work In The Body?

Vitamin C is an antioxidant, which means it protects your cells from damage as a result of environmental factors like sun exposure, pollutants, and other free radicals. This damage exacerbates the appearance of aging, and even contributes to medical conditions like skin cancer. Vitamin C is also crucial to the production of collagen, which is the main building block of skin.

What Are The Benefits Of Vitamin C For The Skin?

Adding a Vitamin C serum to your skincare routine offers many benefits like:

  • Minimizing appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Protection against sun damage (you still need to wear SPF)
  • More even skin tone
  • Improves wound healing
  • Reduces hyperpigmentation
  • Boosts collagen production

As you can see, it plays a very important role in keeping your skin healthy. But, not all Vitamin C formulas are equal. We recommend using one from a trusted, professional brand like SkinBetter Science.
