I’m sure you have heard about the importance of eating fruits that are rich in Vitamin C, but have you heard of the benefits of applying Vitamin C topically to your neck and face? Products that contain Vitamin C are strong in anti-oxidants that help moisturize the skin and prevent or treat the signs of aging. It is no wonder celebrities and estheticians use Vitamin C Serums and Cleansers on a daily basis. So what makes Vitamin C so effective for the skin? Continue reading and discover its many benefits…
Here are 5 reasons why Vitamin C Serums and Cleansers should be an essential part of your skin care regimen:
1. Collagen Production: Tight, glowing skin? Yes, please!
Collagen is a protein present in every single part of our body. It gives our skin strength, elasticity and it helps replace dead skin cells. As we get older, the production of collagen diminishes and that is why we get wrinkles, loose skin and less elasticity. Here is where Vitamin C Serums come to the rescue! Vitamin C contains ascorbic acid, which is necessary for the production of collagen. The ascorbic acid significantly increases the formation of collagen which results in tighter, firmer and less saggy skin.
2. Anti-Aging: Because no one likes wrinkles
Wether you have prominent fine lines and wrinkles or you are trying to prevent them from appearing, Vitamin C Serums and Cleansers are here to fight them off. Some of the common causes of wrinkles are getting older, loss of moisture, unprotected sun exposure and repeated facial expressions. Although Vitamin C can’t stop you from getting older, it can add tremendous amounts of antioxidants that will keep your skin moisturized so it fights off wrinkles.
3. Hyper-Pigmentation: Age Spots be gone!
One of the most common types of Hyper-Pigmentation is Sun Spots (Age Spots). These are characterized by areas on the face that are darker in color and they are caused by the over production of melanin (a pigment in the body that creates skin color). Unprotected sun exposure increases the production of melanin and that is why certain areas are darker than others. With consistent and prolonged use, Vitamin C Serums can help lighten darkened spots because it interacts with the copper found in those areas to help brighten the skin. When it is combined with a Sunscreen it is more potent in preventing future age spots than if the Sunscreen was used alone.
4. Cleanser: So fresh and so Clean!
When it comes to cleansers, you should aim to use one that will clean the face with out striping it of its natural oils and moisture. There are many products out there that effectively remove the makeup and grime but they leave behind chemicals and dry skin. Natural Vitamin C Cleansers are the ideal combination of cleaning agent and skin nourisher. Vitamin C is rich in antioxidants so as you clean off makeup and sweat from your pores , you are also removing damaging oxidizing agents that cause wrinkles and skin discoloration. Our Vitamin C Cleanser also includes soothing Aloe Vera and Rosehip Oil to keep your skin nourished with key nutrients and Omega 3’s.
5. Moisturizer: Soft and Dewy
Vitamin C Serum is also a fantastic nourishing moisturizer that will leave your skin looking radiant. Serums are more easily absorbed into the skin because they are thin in consistency and they do not leave a filmy layer like their thicker cream counterparts. It has a somewhat oily consistency but once it is applied to the skin, it gets absorbed quickly and leaves it prepared for the addition of Sunscreen.
I hope you found these 5 points informative and that you are encouraged to achieve over all healthier skin through the use of Vitamin C Cleansers and Serums. It is always wise to look for products that are Natural, Sulfate Free and Paraben free.
