The Effects of Vitamin C on Your Skin

If you're interested in skincare, you've probably heard about vitamin C serums.

Few substances are more effective in brightening skin, protecting it from aggressors, and addressing age symptoms. Another aspect of its allure? It’s widely regarded as one of the most effective anti-aging substances available to keep a smooth, even, glowing complexion.

Even though vitamin C may be in your diet, there’s no way to guarantee that it’s going straight to your skin. Using serums and other topical products is the most direct way to reap these benefits.

If you have yet to incorporate a vitamin C product into your skin routine, allow us to convince you of the many reasons why you should.

Vitamin C

What is Vitamin C?

Vitamin C, which also goes by ascorbic acid and L-ascorbic acid, is a necessary ingredient for the growth and repair of tissues in all body regions, including the skin, but the body does not produce it. The potent antioxidant may be found naturally in fruits and vegetables and is widely synthesized in skincare products. 

As an antioxidant vital skin rejuvenator, it is an essential nutrient in tissue repair. Its enzymatic production of various transmitters instantly targets skin imperfections. Formulated with concentrated yet gentle Vitamin C, it helps even tone and boosts firming-looking skin.

While you can certainly eat your way to a healthy vitamin C intake, your skin, in particular, reaps the biggest benefits when it’s applied topically versus ingested. Topically, it’s a lot more potent than oral intake.

Benefits of Vitamin C

Vitamin C focuses on skin issues such as dark spots, blemishes, acne, large pores, undereye circles, and dullness by promoting rejuvenation. Pure Vitamin C helps with:

#1 Collagen production
Collagen provides support and structure to our skin, and as it deteriorates with age, we begin to notice wrinkles and lines. It is a required cofactor for the formation of collagen bundles to prevent wrinkles and sagging skin. 
#2 Skin hydration
The epidermis (top layer of skin) dries up without enough moisture, resulting in itchy, scaly skin and accelerated aging. Hydration is essential for maintaining healthy, youthful-looking skin.
#3 Undereye circles
Vitamin C strengthens the normally thin, sensitive skin beneath the eyes, which helps to minimize and prevent dark circles. The antioxidant effects of vitamin C make skin more elastic and robust, which aids in the concealment of blood vessels beneath the skin.
#4 Improvements on visible signs of aging
 As an antioxidant, one of vitamin C’s primary functions is protecting the skin. Normal cellular processes and environmental insults like ultraviolet light and pollution create free radicals in the skin.
#5 Even skin tone
Vitamin C is also helpful in lightening unwanted brown spots by blocking the pathway of pigment synthesis.  Vitamin C also prevents hyperpigmentation by inhibiting the development of tyrosinase, an enzyme that contributes to the formation of hyperpigmentation.
