Vitamin C is one of the best 'hero products' out there! Why? because it can really do so much, it can help protect your skin from the sun, moisturize it, and it's anti ageing! I mean talk about rescuing your skin.
How does it do all this?
Well the answer lies in the composition. Vitamin C is an antioxidant and free radical scavenger and this just basically means it seeks out and gets rid of things that can damage your skin, in this case the bad effects of sun rays. The rays of the sun create free radicals in the skin and then vitamin c will then fight These - Our little hero!
Over time sun rays will damage our skin's DNA, connective tissue, and weaken the protein in the skin. Using vitamin C daily under your SPF will give you an added layer of protection.
Well if that's not enough, vitamin C can help to brighten your skin, protect and strengthen your skin. It helps the body build new collagen. Vitamin C is also the only 'moisturiser' I recommend because it is hydrating and it helps to really moisturise your skin much more effectively than a traditional moisturiser, you will also slow down the decline of natural lipids in your skin ! Vitamin C is suitable to be used by all ages, but the best time to start using it is your twenties. This is to help slow down the effects of ageing and photo damage caused by the sun. Vitamin C levels decrease in the skin as we age so adding in a good serum is a really good way of helping to keep your skin full of all the good things we need to keep us looking younger for longer!
The best part
Vitamin C is natural and relatively inexpensive for the benefits you get!
It's very important to be sure you are buying a good quality Vitamin C serum. You don't want one with added oils and other unhelpful ingredients. I advise my clients use a strong and effective Vit C product called Flavo C. Flavo C is a medigrade product. Read more about Flavo C here here
