Are you using Vitamin C in your skincare routine? If you haven’t started yet, you totally should. I have been using it for a year now and let me just tell you that it’s been a game-changer. There are so many great benefits to using Vitamin C serum and I am here to give you details.
What is Vitamin C?
Just like when you are sick, you take vitamin C to help you get better. Well adding vitamin C to your skincare acts just as a powerful antioxidant against environmental free radicals that aim to help fight against your skin.
5 Reasons You Should Add Vitamin C Serum to Your Skincare Routine
Reason #1 – Helps with Uneven Skin Tone
Uneven skin tone aka hyperpigmentation is an irregular darkening of the skin. The cause of this is the overproduction of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin and hair color. This results in dark patches and spots and it can age you by 12 years.
Reason #2 – Hydration
Vitamin C is going to help hydrate your skin. It helps your skin retain water and prevents it from becoming too dry or oily.
Reason #3 – Calms Down Sunburn
Yes, you read that right. You should still be using SPF, no matter what. But if you happen to get sunburnt, you can use vitamin C to help speed up cell turnover. Meaning your sunburned skin is rejuvenated and heals faster.
Reason #4 – Reduces Inflammation
If you are someone who gets red, irritated, or shows signs of rash on your skin, studies have shown that vitamin C helps relieve signs associated with inflammatory skin conditions. For example dermatitis, acne, and psoriasis.
Reason #5 – Anti-Aging
When it comes to fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Vitamin C is so helpful to have. The nutrients in vitamin C help protect against damaged and aid in skin regeneration by neutralizing free radicals.
Now that you read this I hope that you decide to add vitamin C to your skincare routine.
