It is widely known that Vitamin C is a skin care superhero. This potent substance is praised for its capacity to provide a more radiant complexion, balance skin tone, and reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. Here is all the information you need to include vitamin C to your skin care regimen.
What is Vitamin C?
Vitamin C, also called ascorbic acid, is a powerful antioxidant required for the growth, development, and repair of all bodily tissues, including the skin. Vitamin C is also known as ascorbic acid.
Your body benefits greatly from vitamin C, which is also a miracle worker when it comes to skin care. The formation of collagen in the skin is increased, pigmentation and inflammation are reduced, and UV damage is prevented.
Vitamin C can only be ingested (think chewable vitamins and freshly squeezed orange juice) or applied topically (think Vitamin C in your favourite skin care serums and moisturizers) because we cannot create it and our systems cannot store it.

Benefits of Vitamin C For Your Skin
One of the best things about vitamin C is that it aids in both preventing and repairing environmental damage. Vitamin C can offer further defence against the ageing effects of environmental stressors including pollution, blue light, and UV rays during the day, and at night, its regenerative characteristics can lessen the appearance of damage from free radical exposure. Here is a deeper look at the various advantages of vitamin C for skin care.
Fights Free Radicals
Free radicals trigger inflammation and cascades of damage. Antioxidants give free radicals an electron before they harm the skin in an unnecessary way. One such antioxidant that can reduce the visual effects of exposure to pollution, particle matter, and other forms of environmental stress is vitamin C. Vitamin C can neutralize and eliminate free radicals.
Minimizes Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Free radical damage frequently affects collagen and elastin. The firmness and bounce of a young complexion can be attributed to these structural proteins. Weakened tissues are unable to offer crucial structural support, which leads to the development of apparent ageing symptoms including drooping skin and fine lines and wrinkles.
The antioxidant properties of vitamin C can help reduce the visibility of hyperpigmentation. The skin defends itself by causing cells called melanocytes to create the pigment melanin in response to stress. Tyrosinase, an enzyme that activates the skin's melanocytes, is inhibited by vitamin C, which reduces the visibility of dark patches and hyperpigmentation by preventing melanin formation. This results in a complexion that is lighter and more even in tone.
Increases Collagen Production
The natural depletion and degradation of your skin's collagen resources as you age causes visible signs of ageing. Vitamin C helps skin stay firm, plump, and youthful-looking for longer by stabilizing the collagen that currently exists in addition to stimulating the skin's fibroblasts to make new collagen.
Add Vitamin C To Your Skin Care Routine
It's easy to incorporate a Vitamin C serum into your skincare routine. All skin types can utilize vitamin C, which is normally made in a fast-absorbing solution that can be used morning and night. Applying 1-2 drops of serum on cleaned and toned skin is advised by skin care professionals.
Apply your preferred facial oil and/or moisturizer after spreading a thin layer of serum with your fingertips over your face and neck and letting it fully absorb.
