Long before their skin starts to show signs of aging, women already seek and incorporate anti-aging solutions into their skincare routine. While the beauty industry is saturated with such treatments and products, women only need go back to their basics to find that miracle ingredient: we’re talking vitamin C.

Vitamin C is steadily gaining popularity in the beauty industry due to its powerful ability to naturally combat signs of aging, repair damage, and improve skin health. The best part? It’s great for all skin types.

 

Here are 7 reasons you need to add vitamin C to your beauty shelf, stat!

  • It keeps your skin younger-looking.

  • Vitamin C boosts collagen production so you can have plumper and firmer skin. The increase in collagen also works to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Dull skin no more!

  • Vitamin C fights free radicals and signs of aging.

  • This antioxidant helps combat free radicals, thus strengthening and renewing your skin at a cellular level. Vitamin C also helps revive other antioxidants, such as vitamin E.

  • Vitamin C shields the skin from damaging UV rays!

  • The antioxidant properties of vitamin C thicken the skin’s dermis layer to guard it from harsh UV rays and sun exposure. It work wonders to the skin when worn with sunscreen!

  • It evens out skin tone and brightens dark spots.

  • Bye bye, blemishes! The topical use of vitamin C impedes melanin production, thus evening out the tone of the skin and brightening your complexion. So if you’ve got dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and racoon eyes to deal with — leave them to vitamin C.

  • Vitamin C promotes skin repair and healing!

  • Vitamin C stimulates healthy cell regeneration and turnover to repair collagen loss and sun exposure damage. Studies found that Vitamin C speeds up the natural healing process of the body, allowing acne, cuts, sunburns and other blemishes to heal more quickly.

  • Vitamin C reduces nasty inflammation!

  • In high concentrations, it can also reduce inflammation. Vitamin C is very ideal for people who have nasty puffiness around the eyes and other skin areas when they wake up in the morning.

  • It hydrates and moisturizes the skin.
