Vitamin C protects the skin from environmental elements like ultraviolet rays and pollution that speed up premature skin ageing and promote wrinkles, uneven skin tone and a dull, saggy complexion. Vitamin C helps keep skin healthy by putting up a defence field of antioxidant ‘soldiers’ that fight off pollutants and UV damage. The antioxidant properties of vitamin C are vital for skin health.
Collagen is the skins support ‘mattress’ and vitamin C is the essential cofactor building triple chain strands of collagen to withstand skin stressors.
Vitamin C is helpful in fading skin discolouration marks and brown spots, by blocking the pathway of pigment production.
Vitamin C is ideal for skin that has lost elasticity and is suffering from an uneven skin colour and sun-damaged skin.
It is best to use vitamin C every morning, giving you antioxidant protection all day. Use after cleaning. Apply the serum followed with your moisturiser and sunscreen.
Vitamin C works well with other antioxidants, Vitamin A, B and E which help boost its performance.
Avoid using vitamin C with exfoliating acids like alpha hydroxy acids as this causes skin irritations.
Note: If you have an oily, acne prone or sensitive skin, avoid using vitamin C as a skin brightener, as it will irritate the skin and may cause breakout.
