WHAT IS VITAMIN C?

Vitamin C is an important basic nutrient that we humans need to repair, strengthen and grow tissues. Since the body cannot make Vitamin C on its own, it depends on absorption through nutritional intake and topical application (AKA your diet and skin care). Vitamin C is found naturally in many fruits and vegetables and because of its amazing effectiveness, it now serves as a key ingredient in a variety of skin care products; because it has many antioxidant, rejuvenating and enriching properties.

Let’s take a look at 5 key benefits of Vitamin C in strengthening, protecting and restoring your skin:

1) PROTECTION AGAINST THE POLICE AND THE FORMULATED PEOPLE

Free radicals are molecules created in the body by exposure to environmental stressors, such as particles in the air, pollution, and cigarette smoke. Over time, daily exposure can start to damage and damage healthy skin cells. Excessive molecular compromise leads to damage, and this can sometimes affect important cellular components such as DNA. These harmful changes are not only associated with disease (especially autoimmune diseases and skin cancer), but also contribute significantly to the aging process of the skin. Once the damaging process begins, the skin’s moisture barrier, pigmentation, and overall texture are impaired. We call this oxidative stress – and there’s nothing fancy about it.

But don’t fret! Fortunately, vitamin C is a potent and potent antioxidant, which means it helps neutralize free radicals. This means that Vitamin C supports the natural regeneration of skin cells that have been exposed to daily pollutants and helps repair damage. Similar to how antioxidant-rich superfoods systematically support your body, applying Vitamin C topically will help your skin recover quickly.

2) BOOSTS COLLAGEN PRODUCTION

Collagen is the key! Collagen is a precious protein produced by our own bodies and is vital to the health and appearance of our skin. The production rate decreases with age, which means our skin struggles to stay firm and plump as wrinkles form. Vitamin C is highly acidic and provides stability to collagen molecules, thereby stimulating collagen synthesis. This means that Vitamin C plays an important role in helping to create and support skin throughout all stages of life and helps restore the skin’s own natural collagen production from within. Strong and sturdy on the inside equals splendor and brilliance on the outside – what could be better?

3) DECREE ON ASSOCIATION CONDITIONING

Hyperpigmentation occurs due to the overproduction of the pigment melanin. Melanin is made by skin cells and gives skin its color, however, its production can be altered in different ways, including by hormonal changes, sun exposure too much weather and due to trauma. Hyperpigmentation reduces the overall luminosity and radiance of the skin and can lead to uneven skin tone.

Amazingly, Vitamin C significantly reduced discoloration and hyperpigmentation by blocking cellular pigment synthesis pathways (phew!). Overproduction of melanin is prevented, and with regular use, topical Vitamin C can actually prevent the development of discolored skin in the first place! Vitamin C’s true alchemy lies in its ability to fade hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone without affecting normal pigmentation – it’s just magic!

4) UV LIGHT DAMAGE LIMIT

We can all enjoy exposing ourselves to the sun’s rays, the ultraviolet (UV) radiation emitted by the sun is incredibly damaging to our skin. Even for short periods of time, daily exposure can have negative effects over time if skin is not properly protected. And this protection can go beyond just applying SPF.

Topical vitamin C has been shown to act as a second line of defense for the skin against UV damage. Vitamin C itself is not an SPF, but it does help amplify the skin’s natural antioxidant factors. This means that free radicals generated from UV damage are counteracted and skin cells are nourished to repair and replenish themselves. Prolonged UV exposure actually reduces Vitamin C content in the skin, so if you’re a sun worshiper, adding Vitamin C to your skincare routine in addition to SPF is a no-brainer. need to be debated.

5) REDUCING INFLATION

While all the different chronic skin conditions like Acne, Rosacea, and Eczema have one thing in common: Inflammation. Whether your symptoms include dilated capillaries, spots, redness or overproduction of oil, inflammation and immune stimulants beneath the skin are to blame.

Thankfully, Vitamin C has powerful anti-inflammatory properties because it inhibits the activation of cytokines. Cytokines play a huge part in triggering inflammatory cycles, and research shows that increased numbers of cytokines are present in many inflammatory skin conditions. As many people with acne will be well aware, scars and wounds are common. Ingenious Vitamin C is also integral to aid in wound healing and prevent the formation of large scar tissue. Good news all round.

HOW DO I FORCE VITAMIN C INTO MY WAY?

It’s not all in the product when it comes to reaping the magical benefits of Vitamin C for your skin.
