“C – for Confidence”
All you need to know about Vitamin C
We have all been to a doctor visit where we’ve been asked to increase our diet of citrus food or eat foods rich in Vitamin C. Overall, this vitamin is often cited as an absolute essential to maintain healthy bodily functions, aid absorption of minerals, improve our immunity, and aid wound healing but that’s not all it can do.
Vitamin C, a water-soluble antioxidant, has the molecular weight to penetrate the skin and the properties to combat the effects of UVA and UVB rays, induce collagen production, and prevent skin changes associated with hyperpigmentation.
This anti-ageing superstar, has often been quoted as one of the most important ingredients in skincare. On topical application, it goes deep within the layers of the skin and benefits it by neutralizing free radicals, thereby evening out the skin tone, hydrating the skin, and making our skin look younger, longer. It also has anti-inflammatory benefits that soothe, calm, and make it an absolute delight for any skin type!
How to use Vitamin C on your skin
The most common way to incorporate this into your skincare routine is through a topical application of serums that contain Vitamin C. They can be used in the morning after exfoliating and cleansing your skin and then following up with a moisturiser to make you all set for the day.
