We all know that Vitamin C is one of the most effective ways of keeping our bodies healthy. And that it’s a brilliant immune booster. But what you may not be quite so aware of is that it’s absolutely fantastic for your skin!
In fact, it is pegged as being one of the safest, most successful anti-aging treatments available to us! And while consuming loads of citrus certainly helps, applying Vitamin C serums directly onto your face has unbeatable benefits. An example of a perfect serum would be SK.IN Vitamin C!
A brighter you
So let’s chat about the advantages…
Firstly, Vitamin C serums are super safe for your skin. In fact, even minor irritations are rare and only really occur in people who are hypersensitive. It’s also totally compatible with other skin care actives like hyaluronic acid, retinol and SPFs. So integrating it into a multi-faceted beauty routine is absolutely hassle free.
Another noticeable result of using Vitamin C on your skin is it’s brightening effect. It contributes significantly to obtaining a youthful glow, reducing hyperpigmentation, age spots and sun spots. It also retards the production of melanin.
In addition, Vitamin C provides excellent protection against photo-ageing (the ageing of the skin from exposure to UV rays) Ie. Use sunblock!. It is also very good for:
- Smoothing out fine lines under the eyes.
- Helping skin retain plumpness and moisture.
- Reducing redness and boosting collagen production.
And all of the above promotes a smoother, more even skin tone.
Experts will tell you that it’s advisable to add a Vitamin C serum to your skincare routine gradually. So initially applying it a couple of times a week is sufficient. You can then build up to using it daily if required. If you want to take advantage of its UV protection qualities, a morning application is preferable. However, it also doubles up as a rejuvenating night serum if used in the evenings.
Please bear in mind that all skincare products have an expiry date. So, if your serum has changed colour or darkened, throw it away. Although not dangerous, it means that the Vitamin C content has oxidised and will no longer benefit you. After all, your skin is one of the most worthwhile investments you’ll ever make, so don’t skimp on the essentials!
