Here’s Why the Goodness of Vitamin C Is a Must in Your Make-Up

Here’s Why the Goodness of Vitamin C Is a Must in Your Make-Up

Hydrating, cleansing and healing, vitamin C is a wonderous organic substance for your skin.

Vitamin C is a crucial element in skin care regimen. It keeps your skin hydrated and firm and can be introduced in your skin care routine via serums, creams, face washes and body lotions infused with its goodness.

What Are the Benefits of Vitamin C?

Vit C dons several hats. It provides ample hydration to your delicate skin, prevents hyperpigmentation and reverts sun damage, among its many other benefits.

Let’s go over them point by point.

  • Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, a derivative of Vitamin C used in many skin care products reduces water loss from the epidermal layer of your skin. This amps up moisture-retention in your skin.
  • If you are prone to skin inflammation and redness, a Vit C toner or serum will be your best friend. Apply it before bed every night and soon you will see positive results on your skin. Click here to get a serum bottle now.
  • Sunspots, age marks and hyperpigmentation are other skin issues that can be helped by Vit C toners.
  • Since this miracle ingredient has rejuvenating properties, ascorbic acid (Vit C) helps your skin go through the natural regeneration process, aiding in the repair of damaged cells.
  • It also has antioxidant properties that help your skin triumph over the daily UV damage. Click here to purchase a pore tightening Vitamin C toner.

Is It Safe to Put Vit C on Your Face?

Another great thing about the vitamin is that it suits most skin types. Only if your skin is super sensitive or you are allergic to it should you avoid it. If you have never used a vitamin C serum or toner before, take a skin patch test or dilute it in a little bit of water before applying on the skin.

How to Use Vitamin C on Your Face?
