Beyond warding off colds, studies have shown this powerful nutrient may also reduce blood pressure and potentially lower risk of heart disease and topically, it keeps your skin healthy too, protecting from oxidative damage caused by daily exposure to UVA/UVB light, heat and pollution.
So adding Vitamin C to your beauty regimen can brighten your skin, reduce inflammation and promote healthy collagen production as well as protecting against environmental elements and free radicals.
There are a few things to look out for when choosing the right topical product. First, make sure the active ingredient is L-ascorbic acid, a highly potent form of pure Vitamin C that is known for its superior antioxidant benefits. Next, look for serums where Vitamin C is combined with other antioxidants like Vitamin E and ferulic acid. This combination makes all of the ingredients work synergistically, increasing their anti-aging effects. Lastly choose products with a pure concentration of between 10 and 15% Vitamin C.
Longtime pioneer of touting Vitamin C, SkinCeuticals, is really the first beauty brand to maximize the benefits of Vitamin C in beauty products. They pioneered parameters for effective delivery to skin and their antioxidant formulations are really the gold standard for correcting visible signs of aging and preventing future skin damage.
SkinCeuticals has different serums for different skin types and concerns. Use it every day just as you would your sunscreen, under your makeup. For more info go to skinceuticals.com and #VitaminCDay.
