Vitamin C Serum: Everything you Should Know

Vitamin C contains natural antioxidants that protect your skin from pollution and free radicals. Vitamin C also protects your skin from potential damage from exposure to UV rays. However, it is not quite the substitute for an SPF sunscreen. It slightly lessens that harm your skin may receive from UV rays. We still recommend using a daily sunscreen to fully protect your skin, especially during the sunnier spring/summer months.

Vitamin C is one of the most sought-after ingredients in skincare. It boasts of a wide range of benefits. Keep reading to discover these benefits and discover one of our newest vegan and cruelty-free skincare products.

Benefits of Vitamin C in Skincare Products

1. Hydrating

One of the key ingredients contained in Vitamin C is Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate. This superstar ingredient is best known for providing your skin with a deeply hydrating effect.

2. Eradicates Pigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is when melanin is overproduced in certain areas of your skin, causing it to appear darker. Vitamin C in skincare products helps to reduce the appearance of pigmentation, uneven skin tone and dark spots.

3. Collagen Production

Vitamin C Boosts the production of Collagen in your skin. As you age, the amount of collagen that your skin naturally produces reduces over time. This will lead to fine lines and wrinkles appearing on your skin. Collagen provides your skin with a plumper appearance and smoothes out any signs of ageing.

4. Heals Wounds

Vitamin C speeds up the process of healing wounds. It also plays an essential part of damage caused to your skin from prolonged and unprotected exposure to sunburn.

5. Reduces Redness

Vitamin C reduces redness of your skin and also treats a a wide range of inflammatory skin conditions. It provides your skin with an effective calming effect and evens out your skin tone. Overall, your complexion will be improved.
