Whether you're a skincare guru or just starting out, here are some reasons why Vitamin C should always be your first stop for skincare.
What is Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that plays a critical role in maintaining healthy skin. It's a powerful antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals and prevent damage caused by UV radiation and pollution.
People get most of their Vitamin C from their diets, but only a small percentage of it makes its way to the skin. That’s why it’s important to incorporate Vitamin C into your skincare routine.
How does Vitamin C benefit your skin?
Vitamin C is an antioxidant, which means that it works as a shield to defend your skin cells against free radicals, like pollution, cigarette smoke or UV rays from the sun. Free radical damage appears as fine lines, wrinkles, skin sagging, and even dark areas of hyperpigmentation.
Vitamin C helps to protect your skin from harmful molecules and works to lighten dark spots over time.
It also boosts collagen production! Collagen is a protein that helps your skin stay plump & firm. Vitamin C is a vital component to maintain your skin’s elasticity as you age.
Where do we source our Vitamin C?
