There are so many amazing natural body care ingredients and essential oils that can help improve the health and appearance of skin, but one of the most essential has got to be vitamin C.
Add some zest to your body care routine and discover the potent benefits of this skin-loving vitamin!
Vitamin C Firms Your Skin
Vitamin C helps skin build collagen – a protein which helps to firm the appearance of skin.
Our bodies naturally decrease the production of collagen over time. Since our bodies cannot produce its own vitamin C, applying it topically can help skin increase the rate at which it synthesises collagen. So, in helping to promote collagen production, topical vitamin C can help prevent premature aging of the skin.
Vitamin C Moisturises Your Skin
If your skin is feeling dull, dry or looking a little lacklustre, vitamin C’s skin brightening effects may very well be the boost your skin is craving. As vitamin C is so easily absorbed into the skin, it can actually help decrease trans-epidermal water loss in the skin, allowing it to retain moisture.
Vitamin C Antioxidizes Your Skin
This powerful antioxidant protects skin from harmful free radicals that come from exposure to stressors like UV light. Vitamin C helps to neutralise the effects of free radicals, which in turn boosts the overall health of your skin.
