Vitamin C

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that offers numerous benefits for your skin. It is a water-soluble vitamin that helps to protect your skin from oxidative stress caused by free radicals, which can damage your skin cells and accelerate the ageing process.

There are so many benefits to Vitamin C, I’ll have to list them!

  1. Brightens skin tone: Vitamin C is a natural skin brightener that can help to reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. It works by inhibiting the production of melanin, which is responsible for dark spots and uneven skin tone.

  2. Reduces fine lines and wrinkles: Vitamin C is an anti-ageing powerhouse that can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It promotes collagen production, which helps to firm and plump the skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

  3. Protects against sun damage: Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that can help to protect your skin from the harmful effects of UV rays. It neutralises free radicals and helps to prevent photoageing, which can cause wrinkles, age spots, and other signs of ageing.

  4. Improves skin texture: Vitamin C can also help to improve the texture of your skin by reducing the appearance of pores and smoothing out rough patches. It promotes cell turnover, which helps to reveal brighter, smoother, and more radiant skin.

  5. Enhances skin hydration: Vitamin C also has moisturising properties that can help to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. It helps to strengthen the skin barrier and prevent moisture loss, resulting in softer, smoother, and more supple skin.

  6. Boosts skin immunity: Vitamin C supplements (not skincare) is essential for a healthy immune system, and it plays a crucial role in maintaining the health of your skin. It helps to strengthen the skin's natural defences and protect against environmental stressors.

 

Can I use Vitamin C in skincare when I am pregnant/breastfeeding?

Yes it is safe. Your skin may be more sensitive and if you are using active ingredients such as Vitamin C when pregnant, use sunscreen if the weather is sunny.

 

Who should avoid using Vitamin C in skincare?
