Ingredient Focus: Vitamin C

As the cold weather approaches, we often turn to Vitamin C to boost our immune system. But did you know that this incredible nutrient isn't just beneficial internally? In this article, we'll explore how Vitamin C can work wonders for your skin when incorporated into your skincare routine.

What is Vitamin C?

Vitamin C, scientifically known as L-ascorbic acid, is a potent antioxidant. You can find it in foods like oranges, kiwi, and broccoli, although dietary Vitamin C is not the same as the one used in skincare products. It's derived from various sources and can also be synthesized in laboratories. The Vitamin C used in skincare products is typically ascorbic acid.

What are the Benefits for the Skin?

- Brightening Skin Tone: Vitamin C helps fade dark spots and pigmentation, leaving your skin radiant by inhibiting melanin production.

- Fighting Free Radicals: Its antioxidant properties neutralize free radicals, protecting your skin from environmental damage.

- Boosting Collagen Production: Vitamin C stimulates collagen synthesis, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

- Healing Wounds: It promotes skin healing and reduces inflammation, making it ideal for post-shave or irritated skin.

All skin types can benefit from this ingredient, that's why we included it in both our Special Sauce Serum and Hydro Edge Moisturizer.

How to Use it in Your Skincare Routine

Vitamin C can be incorporated into your skincare routine through various products like serums, moisturizers, and even face masks. To maximize its benefits, apply Vitamin C in the morning after cleansing, but before sunscreen. When looking for complementary ingredients in your skincare routine, consider:

With its incredible benefits, Vitamin C isn't just a winter immune booster; it's a skincare superhero that can help you achieve healthy, youthful, and radiant skin. So, don't forget to include Vitamin C in your skincare routine to experience the face the change in seasons with confidence and glowing skin!
