Top 3 benefits of Vitamin C Serum for your face
There's no denying that Vitamin C - or ascorbic acid - is good for your immune system. But, did you know it's also amazing for your skin?
Vitamin C, found naturally in oranges, red peppers and even brussels sprouts, is vital for preventing poor health and contributes to normal immune system support, reduced tiredness and even increased iron absorption.
Vitamin C serum is one of the popular health and beauty trends this year and it's easy to see why. Read on to find out why it's become SO popular in the fight for healthy looking, even tone, plump looking skin!
But did you know that it also helps with improving the appearance and health of your skin?
When used regularly, vitamin C in the form of ascorbic acid provides a wide profile of benefits to keep your skin looking soft and youthful. It can help with skin tone problems, keeping your skin protected against pollution, improving moisture and hydration, all to help keep your skin looking younger for longer.
Wait! Don't go slicing up your fruit bowl and mashing it onto your face just yet - there's an easier way to get the benefits of vitamin c directly on to your skin - and that's through Vitamin C serums.
Here's the top 3 reasons why you should apply Vitamin C serum.
1. Vitamin C serums are the easiest way to get Vitamin C directly into the skin
Whilst you can take Vitamin C orally in the form of a tablet or effervescent tablet, in order to get the most benefit for your face, it should be applied topically in the form of a serum.
Vitamin C is safe and gentle enough to use even on sensitive skin, and can be made part of your daily skincare regime. The most effective way of using vitamin C serum is to cleanse your face and immediately apply a few drops of serum to your fingers, and massage gently around the forehead, nose, cheeks and under the eyes. Avoid getting it in your eyes. Once it's dried, you can then continue to apply moisturiser and makeup over the top as usual.
2. Vitamin C serums have incredible skincare benefits for all ages
No matter what your age, it's never too soon to start applying vitamin c serum to help keep your skin looking brighter, firmer and younger.
The benefits of Vitamin C serum include:
- - Reducing skin discolouration and even skin tone
- - Speeds up skin healing
- - Promotes collagen production to help fight fine lines and wrinkles
- - Helps to reduce the signs of sun damaged skin
- - Improves hydration and dryness
- - Revitalises dull skin to appear brighter and more youthful
- - You can use vitamin c serum with or without a derma-roller
3. It's kinder to your skin than most anti-ageing creams
Because Vitamin C is a natural product that is well utilised by the body, opting for a skin-kind facial serum is the most gentle way of helping keep wrinkles and lines at bay.
You're still best to apply a moisturiser to your skin after applying the vitamin c serum. Remember that Vitamin C serum is not an alternative to SPF, although it can help repair sun damaged skin - so we'd reccomend a light moisturiser with SPF to go over the top of your serum once it's dried.
