Vitamin C Benefits for Skin

Vitamin C Benefits for Skin

Few ingredients receive as much praise from skin-care experts as vitamin C. It's well-established that the benefits of vitamin C for skin are extensive and wide-ranging, not to mention beneficial for pretty much everyone, regardless of age or skin type. It's a serious workhorse, one that's absolutely worth incorporating into your routine. Vitamin C is the most plentiful antioxidant found in human skin. Since your body is unable to produce vitamin C, it has to be obtained orally, either from your diet or taking supplements. Still, even if you have a high intake of vitamin C, only a small amount is able to be absorbed in the skin. The only way to see its amazing benefits in the skin is to apply it topically. When applied topically, vitamin C accelerates the production of both collagen and elastin, which help keep the skin plump and firm. Topical vitamin C can help prevent premature aging of the skin, restoring a youthful, smooth appearance.

Consistency is key for maximum effect, so add it to your skin care routine in a way that makes sense for you. Some people apply it in the morning to take advantage of its UV-protectant properties, while others find that it works best as a night serum. Others apply it twice daily.
