It's deemed "essential" by dermatologists, but why should you be using Vitamin C on your skin? There's a laundry list of reasons Vitamin C is good for your complexion. Here are some:
1. It fades and prevents spots
Vitamin C can aid in the skin's ability to heal itself, so it should be your go-to when looking to reduce any unwanted red and brown spots on your face. That, plus its incredible anti-inflammatory properties, will give you the even skin tone you never thought was within reach.
2. Vitamin C boosts collagen
Vitamin C is one of the factors in stabilizing and creating collagen molecules, meaning it's one of the more reliable anti-aging ingredients on the market. Research also shows that it can increase the quality of collagen in your body, which will make your skin smoother and bouncier than ever.
3. It defends against free radicals
Vitamin C is an antioxidant, which is really good news for those with sun damage. Vitamin C can donate electrons in order to neutralize free radicals created in skin after sun damage. So while vitamin C can't protect skin like sunscreen can, it can minimize the damage you can't see.
Let's talk vitamin C serums
"If you’re not using one, it’s definitely time to step up your anti-aging game and give your skin some serious protection," says celebrity esthetician and skin care expert Renée Rouleau. "Applying a vitamin C serum topically to the skin can essentially keep your skin from turning brown … as well as make your skin look brighter, fresher, with a youthful glow."
InstaNatural's Vitamin C Serum is a standout among serums because of the ingredients vitamin C is paired with. The added Ferulic Acid defends against damage, while Hyaluronic Acid and Sea Buckthorn Oil to support the skin’s protective barrier and keep the skin smooth and free from damage.
