Vitamin C is an ingredient that is truly phenomenal for your complexion. It’s an ingredient that quietly goes about creating beautiful skin without all the hype. Vitamin C for skin can really make a huge difference in the health and beauty of your appearance.
It’s one of the most researched skin care additives and wears a number of hats as it penetrates into the layers of your skin.
The many hats of vitamin C:
- It’s a powerful antioxidant that gobbles up free radicals and keeps them from damaging and destroying your cells.
- It stimulates collagen synthesis.
- It brightens and evens out skin tone while giving a healthy glow.
Vitamin C is a superb anti-aging skin care ingredient but should be avoided by anyone suffering with rosacea, acne, and sensitive skin. You should also be aware that vitamin C is a difficult to stabilize and loses its freshness rather quickly. Once a serum containing vitamin C turns yellow it means that it has oxidized and should be thrown out ASAP. A skin care product that has oxidized isn’t effective any longer and can actually begin damaging your skin as it produces unwanted free radicals.
