Why Vitamin C is a hero ingredient for Summer

We know vitamin C is a powerful ingredient for our inner health and immunity but it's also amazing for the health of our skin. This hero ingredient is jam packed with antioxidants to brighten, firm and protect your skin, the summer months are the perfect time to consider introducing this ingredient into your skin care routine.

Vitamin C aka L-ascorbic Acid is one of the most potent antioxidants ingredients available and is very effective in treating premature ageing giving your brighter, firmer skin.

So how does it work? It has 3 main skin benefits-

Antioxidant protection-

The antioxidant properties in vitamin C help to repair damaged skin cells. It neutralises free radicals that are caused by many different internal and external factors such as diet, lifestyle, UV exposure and pollution. The latest research also shows that Vitamin C actually enhances your skin’s natural defence system, helping it to protect itself from oxidative stress.

Skin brightening-

If you have concerns with uneven skin tone, age spots or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation from breakouts Vitamin C is the answer! As we age our skin is exposed to many different factors that cause structural changes to the melanin in our skin resulting in uneven skin tone and pigmentation. Vitamin C works to brighten the skin and fade pigmentation by inhibiting tyrosinase, a key enzyme in the production of melanin.

Skin firming-

Another benefit of vitamin C is that it renews the skin. It boosts the production of collagen to keep skin looking firm and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Amazing if you are concerned with skin ageing or wanting to prevent future ageing.

As you can see Vitamin C is a super star in the skincare world with so many skin benefits! Do you think your skin could benefit from some of this skin boosting ingredient?

As a great starter we love Ultraderm Absolute C serum. It is an effective combination of nourishing and brightening ingredients to improve skin tone and radiance. It is a lightweight serum that absorbs easily and is suitable for all skin types.
