Whether you're a newbie to skincare, or have years of experience, you've heard of Vitamin C and its connection to healthy skin. But, do you really know of its science-proven benefits?
Vitamin C is the key to maintaining healthy, glowy, even-toned skin. You're most likely getting a good amount of Vitamin C in your diet but its not transferring to your skin. The best way to reap the benefits of Vitamin C for beauty purposes is to apply it topically, in oils, serums, and creams.

Below are 5 benefits of adding Vitamin C to your skincare routine:
Magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, one of the main vitamin C derivatives used in skincare, has a hydrating effect on skin. It decreases transepidermal water loss, allowing your skin to better retain moisture.
Vitamin C helps fade hyperpigmentation and scars and smooths the skin’s surface, promoting a youthful glow.
Vitamin C is well known for boosting collagen production, which is a naturally occurring protein that diminishes over time. Lower levels of collagen contribute to more fine lines & wrinkles.
Protects against sun damage due to its potent antioxidants.
Have a fresh cut, pimple, or razor bump? Vitamin C will speed up the healing and reduce scars.
How to use a Vitamin C Serum:
Apply it once or twice per day, after cleansing and toning your skin, followed by a moisturizer. Ideally, your skincare routing should go as: Cleanse, tone, serum, moisturize.
Vitamin C can help heal blemishes & scars, reduce hyperpigmentation, and give your skin a natural glow.
Consistency is key for maximum effect, so add it to your routine in a way that makes sense for you and use it everyday to see a noticeable change in your skin.
Discontinue use if you begin to experience irritation or discomfort.
