Vitamin C Benefits for The Skin

How Does Vitamin C Benefit The Skin?

Vitamin C's skin-saving benefits aren't limited to its antioxidant status. It has plenty of other skin-healing properties that make it worthy of a permanent place in your medicine cabinet. How does the ingredient work on the skin, though? Are the brighter, smoother results thanks to the same potent antioxidant found in the orange juice you drink when you have a cold? For one, because it's highly acidic, when vitamin C is used topically the skin is triggered to heal itself by accelerating the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are both naturally occurring protein fibers that help keep skin plump and firm. So, in helping to promote collagen production, topical vitamin C can help prevent premature aging of the skin.

Another skin benefit, Vitamin C is a superior brightening agent, when applied topically contains a property that inhibits your skin's melanin production, which is what causes skin discoloration like dark spots and hyperpigmentation. With continued use, vitamin C can help prevent dark spots from forming in the first place. 

What Is Vitamin C?

Consider vitamin C as a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals, protecting the skin. In the same way that consuming antioxidant-rich foods aids your body in fighting off free radicals, topical antioxidants do the same for your skin by helping to offset daily aggressors like UV damage and exposure to air pollution. 

The way vitamin C is applied to the skin is key. All dermatologists agree that the best vitamin C skin-care product to use is in serum form because serums are more effective than creams or toners. As a general rule, serums should be layered underneath your moisturizer. Ascorbic acid (also known as L-ascorbic acid), is the most stable and effective form of vitamin C in skin care and it is one of three powerhouse ingredients in Shabbella Triple Vitamin C Serum. Because of its antioxidant properties, Triple Vitamin C Serum aids in your skin's natural regeneration process, which helps your body repair damaged skin cells.

As with our other serums, it is best advised to start each application slowly. Working up from 3-4 times a week at once in the evening, to daily use as your skin grows more accustomed to the ingredient.. Due to its strong potency, you only need a few drops for each application.
