Ahhh Vitamin C! (I c you…) We are celebrating Vitamin C Month by bringing to light our top 5 reasons to love this super ingredient! We have so many more reasons than just 5…but maybe you’ll see that in a later blog. For now, check out our top reasons to love Vitamin C and make sure to comment your top reasons below!
It’s safe for most skin types.
Vitamin C is not considered a “harsh” ingredient and is actually welcomed by most dermatologists! Because it is such a powerful antioxidant and is natural to its core, you’ll find this ingredient in most skincare regimens.
When you think “hydrating” in skincare the first ingredients that might come to mind are collagen, hyaluronic acid, and moisturizers based with aloe or shea. But did you know…Vitamin C is a huge hydrating ingredient! It decreases trans epidermal water loss, allowing your skin to better retain moisture.
It’s brightening & helps with hyperpigmentation!
It’s like a 2-in-1! Vitamin C can help with the appearance of hyperpigmentation and it can also help brighten your skin for that beautiful “glow” we all dream of! It helps smooth out your skin which gets rid of the dullness holding you back from that glowy skin. As far as hyperpigmentation, this occurs when melanin is overproduced in certain areas. Vitamin C has been shown to impede that production and lead to more even-toned skin!
It promotes collagen production!
More collagen production = less wrinkles! Give us all the ingredients that naturally give you that botox look, are we right? As you get older your body does not produce collagen as quickly or as often as it might have when you were in your early 20’s. Vitamin C helps boost that production which then long turn will mean fewer fine lines & wrinkles.
It’s for both men & women!
Vitamin C sees no gender and no skin type. Men and women both young and old can benefit from this super ingredient! Whether you have blemishes, wrinkles, sun damage, pigmentation, etc. there is room in everyone’s skin care routine for a little Vit C! You could actually say it’s for the whole-body, for everybody…just like us!
So, what’s not to love? It’s hard to find a reason why you SHOULDN’T use this ingredient, right? If you want to learn more, make sure to check out our other blogs and our product pages for our Vitamin C Moisturizer and Vitamin C Serum!
