The Skin Benefits Of Vitamin C

by Ariana Rojas

The Skin Benefits Of Vitamin C

Vitamin C products are a hot commodity for a reason: They work. You name the skin concern, and the chances are that vitamin C has got you covered. Hyperpigmentation, fine lines, rough textures, acne scars, and dullness can benefit from vitamin C. 

We felt like talking about this due to the high demand for vitamin C skincare. We want to dig deeper to learn all about what makes vitamin C such a sought-after skincare ingredient and the best ways to reap its many benefits.

What is vitamin C?

Vitamin C is a vital nutrient required for tissue growth and repair in all parts of the body, including the skin. This powerhouse ingredient is found naturally in fruits and vegetables and commonly produced synthetically in skincare products, such as toners, moisturizers, and, most commonly, serums.

This potent antioxidant can stabilize free radicals. Vitamin C regenerates your skin and will help to repair damaged skin cells. Topical antioxidants will help offset daily aggressors like exposure to air pollution or UV damage. In the same way, consuming them will help your body fight off free radicals. Antioxidants help keep us and our skin healthy. Adding vitamin C may also help protect skin from precancerous changes caused by UV exposure. Fighting free radicals isn't the only benefit this powerhouse antioxidant has to offer.

What other benefits does vitamin C have?

Lightens brown spots

Vitamin C blocks the pathway of pigment synthesis to help lighten unwanted brown spots or minimize the look of brown discoloration.

promotes collagen production

Collagen gives our skin support and structure. We start to notice wrinkles and lines as our skin ages due to a decrease in collagen as we get older. Vitamin C is an essential factor for building and promoting collagen.

Fun fact: Vitamin C is very reactive and quickly loses its antioxidant properties when exposed to heat, light, air, and other chemicals.

How can you add vitamin C into your daily skincare routine?

The key is the type of vitamin C you are using in your skincare routine. L-ascorbic acid is the most common and effective form of vitamin C. Serums are most effective, and adding vitamin E into the mix is like adding the cherry on top. This is why you'll very often find the two antioxidants formulated together in serums, such as Eminence Organic's Award-winning Citrus & Kale C+E Serum. This potent dose of non-irritating Vitamin C is stabilized by botanically-derived ferulic acid to deliver optimal antioxidant benefits and improve the appearance of the skin.
