The 3 main benefits of vitamin C for the skin
Brighten, tighten and protect - and help your skin fight back.
- Vitamin C is one of the most powerful antioxidants available.
- However, many products contain unstable forms of vitamin C that are not effective.
- BioLumin-C products use super-stable ingredients for maximum skin benefits.
You probably already know that vitamin C is important for overall health and wellness. But did you know it's also a skincare powerhouse? Vitamin C is one of the most powerful antioxidants on the market - and it lives up to the hype by effectively fighting the major causes of premature aging and giving you brighter, firmer skin.
Here's a rundown of what a daily dose of vitamin C can do for your skin!
Over time, intrinsic (natural) and extrinsic (environmental) factors cause structural changes in the skin that lead to uneven pigmentation. From UV-induced "age spots" to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, dark spots are no problem for vitamin C: it helps address the causes of uneven pigmentation and effectively lightens skin.
Another important benefit of vitamin C is that it renews the skin's surface. It boosts the production of substances that keep the skin firm and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Vitamin C helps fight the effects of oxidative stress and free radicals by neutralizing harmful molecules. But - and here's the really exciting part - the latest research also shows that vitamin C boosts the skin's natural defense system and helps it protect itself from oxidative stress.
There's just one caveat. In order for vitamin C to actually help brighten, tighten, and protect skin, it needs to penetrate the skin - and many formulations contain unstable ingredients that lose their effectiveness before they even come into contact with the skin. To make sure you're getting the most out of your vitamin C serum, choose a product with stable ingredients that get to where your skin needs them most. (Our tip?
