Everything you need to know about Vitamin C to include it in your skincare routine

Known for its antioxidant properties, vitamin C is the answer to all your skin problems from nature. Vitamin C not only boosts your immunity but also comes as a powerful ingredient for dull, rough, pigmented, and aging skin. From improving skin tone to fighting acne scars, this potent ingredient does it all. Skincare products rich in vitamin C nourish and detoxify the skin while slowing down its aging process. Let us dive deep into the benefits of vitamin C to know how good it is for your skin.

Benefits of Vitamin C for skin

  • Fights free-radicals. Harmful UV rays, pollution, smoke, and dust are responsible for free-radicals in the skin. These free radicals damage the skin cells and break the skin collagen resulting in loss of skin elasticity, wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. Vitamin C is a highly antioxidant ingredient that neutralizes free-radicals by providing them the electrons they need to stabilize, thereby helping in the regeneration of skin cells.
  • Helps fight hyperpigmentation. Harsh environmental aggressors, along with acne scars, damage the skin and overproduce melanin at some places on the skin. This leads to uneven skin tone and dark spots, also called hyperpigmentation. With its antioxidant properties, Vitamin C helps reduce the production of melanin and diminishing hyperpigmentation in the process.
  • Brightens the skin. Vitamin C is a brightening agent that detoxifies the skin, balances skin tone, and diminishes hyperpigmentation. This helps reduce dullness and bring back the glow to the skin.
  • Increases skin elasticity and boosts collagen production. Naturally occurring protein fibers ‘collagen’ and ‘elastin’ start to deteriorate with the harmful effects of environmental aggressors as you age. This gives rise to sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines. When applied topically, vitamin C heals the skin, promotes skin elasticity, and boosts collagen production, giving you a plumped and firm skin.
  • Heals the skin. Apart from its antioxidant properties, vitamin C has the power to boost the production of connective tissue cells. These cells are responsible for repairing and healing wounds.
  • Fights signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines. Vitamin C helps repair damaged skin cells and regenerate new skin cells with its ability to neutralize free-radicals. Healthy skin cells promote healthy skin and keep all signs of aging away.
  • Helps reduce the appearance of dark circles. Dark circles have more free-radicals in comparison with the other areas of your skin, owing to how delicate this skin is. When used topically on the under-eye skin, Vitamin C helps fight free-radicals, clear out the toxins, and promotes blood circulation. This helps to lighten and brighten the under-eye skin and prevent fine lines, wrinkles, sagging under-eye skin, and crow’s feet.
  • Hydrates the skin. Vitamin C contains magnesium ascorbyl phosphate that has hydrating properties for the skin and acts as a humectant to prevent water loss from the skin.

Ways to add Vitamin C to your diet and skincare routine.

Since your body does not produce vitamin C naturally and neither stores it, you need to regularly include vitamin C in your diet to reap its benefits. There are many foods rich in vitamin C to boost your immunity and regenerate the healthy cells in the body.
  • Oranges,
  • Lemons, 
  • Kiwis, 
  • Strawberries,
  • Guava,
  • Bell Peppers,
  • Kale,
  • Broccoli,
  • Brussels Sprouts,
  • Papaya. 
Your skin might not reap the full benefits of vitamin C when consumed orally. This is why it has to be used topically via creams, moisturizers, serums, and face masks.

Which form of Vitamin C? 

You can find creams, moisturizers, serums, and face masks with vitamin C as the main ingredient, but serum will provide this ingredient in the most concentrated form. The highly concentrated formulation of vitamin C absorbs better into the skin and is more effective. Make sure to use vitamin C as L-ascorbic acid in its purest form as it penetrates deep into the skin. You can also go for vitamin C serum that comes with vitamin E, as these two antioxidants, when combined, give double protection against free-radicals. 

One good thing about vitamin C is that it suits almost every skin type, except the most sensitive ones, who might experience a little tingling sensation or irritation. Dermatologists suggest using a lower concentration of vitamin C serum for new users, especially those with sensitive skin. Later, when your skin becomes used to the ingredient, you can increase its concentration as per your need. 

What is the best time to use Vitamin C serum, and how?

The best time to use vitamin C serum is in the morning, as this is when harsh environmental aggressors are most active. Vitamin C protects the skin against the harmful effects of these environmental aggressors; it is best to use this potent potion in the morning before heading outside. Use it after cleansing and toning your face and before using the moisturizer. Make sure to use sunscreen towards the end of the daily skincare routine as vitamin C can only help fight the harsh effects of sun damage but cannot protect against UVA and UVB rays. 

Summing-up

Vitamin C is a dominant ingredient owing to its antioxidant properties to heal and repair damaged skin cells. With its potency to neutralize free radicals, this much sought-after ingredient is great for boosting collagen production, improving skin elasticity, warding off wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, dark circles, and other signs of early aging. Include this ingredient in your skincare routine and regain the healthy skin you once had.
