Four Skin-Loving Benefits of Vitamin C
You already know that Vitamin C is good for your body. Research shows that this amazing vitamin is one of your best beauty treatments, too.
Name just about any skin problem from acne to aging skin and chances are Vitamin C can help. Best of all, this beauty hero can work its magic for beautifying your skin no matter what your age.
If you don’t already use some type of Vitamin C product on your skin, here are 4 skin-loving reasons why you should:
- Saves you from the sag
Studies show that Vitamin C jumpstart production of collagen and elastin, proteins that are essential for keeping your skin firm and wrinkle-free. Since collagen and elastin levels decline as you age, Vitamin C delivers a burst of anti-aging benefits for a young, smooth glow.
- Repairs Aging Skin
Did you know that up to 80 percent of visible aging is caused by exposure to the sun’s UV rays? Vitamin C to the rescue! Vitamin C is packed with antioxidants that help repair and even reverse existing signs of sun damage. It also powers-up your skin’s own healing response to help relieve redness, irritation and even acne.
- Delivers extra sun protection
Vitamin C’s collagen-boosting benefits mean it can rebuild your skin’s structure and renew elasticity. Since it makes your dermal layer stronger, it can help prevents the sun’s rays from damaging your skin in the first place. While Vitamin C is not a replacement for your sunscreen, it can help your sun products work better. So make sure you use an SPF when you venture outside
- Say buh-bye to dark spots
If you have hyperpigmentation, Vitamin C is your best friend. This skin superstar inhibits the action of tyrosinase, the enzyme that causes your skin to produce melanin. You'll also want to make room for the mighty C in your beauty regiment because it can significantly lighten pigmentation without lightening normal skin.
