Top 8 Vitamin C Benefits

We’ve all heard that you should take vitamin C to prevent colds and help speed up recovery from sickness. Did you know it also helps your skin? It doesn’t matter what your skin type is, there is a vitamin C type for everyone. Here are a few reasons you should consider talking to your Skincredible clinician about starting a vitamin C regimen for your skin.

1. Improve the appearance of wrinkles

Using vitamin C daily for at least three months has been shown to help improve the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles as well as overall improved skin appearance.

2. Protect the skin from ultraviolet rays

When used in combination with a broad-spectrum sunscreen, you can protect your skin from ultraviolet rays. And if you combine vitamin C with other topical ingredients, specifically ferulic acid and vitamin E, it can help reduce the appearance of redness and help protect you from the long-term damaging effects of the sun’s rays.

3. Reduce the appearance of dark spots

By blocking the production of pigment in our skin, vitamin C can help reduce the appearance of dark spots. In return, your skin will not only have a reduction in dark spots but will have a brighter and more youthful appearance.

4. Topical vitamin C can help with acne

The anti-inflammatory properties that help control sebum (oil) production within the skin can help with acne breakouts. Clinical trials have shown that twice-daily application of vitamin C can help reduce your chances of acne lesions.

5. Boosts Collagen and elastin production

We’ve talked about collagen and elastin before. Collagen is the protein that is naturally present in your skin and helps keep it from sagging. Elastin helps your skin have that elasticity. As we get older, collagen and elastin production slows down causing sagging, less elastic skin. By applying vitamin C to your skin, you can encourage new collagen and elastin production and protect their current stores.

6. Promotes Healing

Vitamin C can help wounds heal quicker, regardless of how you take it. Supplements, dietary changes, topical methods, they all help.

7. Hydrates the skin

No matter how you take your vitamin C, it can help hydrate your skin and body and prevents it from becoming dry and oily.

8. Reduces inflammation

Vitamin C is a wonderful anti-inflammatory and doubles as an antioxidant. These properties helps to reduce redness, rashes, and irritation. Using a topical vitamin C can help relieve the inflammation in skin conditions like acne.

No matter how you slice it, vitamin C is good for your overall health. Not only will it give you a brighter, more youthful looking appearance, but you will also reap the benefits of faster wound and sickness healing. All of this by just by adding a supplement, vitamin C rich foods to your diet, or even a topical variation to your daily regimen.
