Why do you need Vitamin C?
What is it?
Vitamin C is an antioxidant, known as L ascorbic acid. Vitamin C benefits are amazing for the protection of the skin and have been used to help with hyperpigmentation! Also, it helps damaged skin cells!
Now, here is some important stuff you should know when using this product
Vitamin C benefits for skin include skin healing and skin strength
Creating a beautiful glow
Protects against free radicals
This why you need Vitamin C in your Skincare Routine!!
When using a vitamin c product on the skin, remember to:
- Apply sunscreen
- Use a little bit, a little goes a long way
- Try a patch test
- Wear a hat and stay cool
These guidelines should be followed regardless of when you use Vitamin C.
In my experience with my clients and personally, when using vitamin C, you can reverse its job and burn your skin even more. So make sure to wear a hat and wear sunscreen!
Personally, I prefer using Vitamin C at night time. I have prevented burning and my skin has time to heal and correct whatever is needed.
However, finding a good company that sells a vitamin c serum can be a bit daunting.
Vitamin C can oxidize when exposed to the air, so it becomes useless and a waste of money when applied to the skin. Certain brands like SkinCeuticals and Dermalogica have perfected their serums with the science of course. They knew exactly how to formulate and which ingredients to combine with this essential ingredient!
Now, these brands are the ONLY that I trust and have used. Almost every other vitamin C was too abrasive or not working. As an esthetician, it is important for me to test these products to give my best recommendations. So, I am not recommending anything I wouldn’t personally use.
Vitamin C foods
According to Healthline, here are some foods that are potent in Vitamin C!
- Kakadu Plums
Last piece of advice
If your goal is to have clear skin, I would say rethink that and create a different mindset. Set your goal to “healthy skin”.
Reaching a skin goal requires more than topical product application, it requires constant care and visits to a professional, esthetician or dermatologist. It requires diet changes, stress management skills, and true willpower.
