Here’s why Vitamin C is the best add on in your Skincare this Summer
Do you have a Vitamin C in your skincare routine? If not, then read up! Vitamin C is one of the most popular ingredients in the skincare industry and for a good reason: its ability to work effectively at making the skin glow. But first, let’s go over the basics...
What is Vitamin C? Vitamin C is found in various foods and is used in skincare products for its ability to act as an antioxidant, meaning it protects the skin from free radicals in the environment. It’s also incredible at evening out skin tone and diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It can be found all over the skincare market, primarily in the forms of Ascorbic Acid, also known as L-ascorbic acid.
Being an antioxidant, Vitamin C is most effective when paired with an SPF, since it protects the skin from free radicals caused by UV exposure. It also works as a melanin inhibitor, lightening hyperpigmentation in the skin and enhancing skin radiance and it's commonly found in a skin whitening cream. All around, Vitamin C is a powerful ingredient that does wonders to the skin. Add this ingredient to your skincare routine if your skin concerns include hyperpigmentation (or if you just want that glow).
The best products for Vitamin C are serums and moisturizers. Vitamin C is a hydrating ingredient so it works great for bringing moisture back into dry, parched skin. It works best when found in serums and moisturizers as they tend to have the most potent amount of the ingredient, working effectively to brighten the skin.
Vitamin C can be used both in the morning and at night since it’s such a gentle ingredient. Like previously mentioned, it is best used when paired with a SPF - so definitely make sure to add this to your skincare routine for the summer! After cleansing, toning and exfoliating, apply Vitamin C both day and night to really get the benefits this ingredient has to offer. If using during the day, apply the Vitamin C prior to using SPF and always layer your products from thinnest to thickest texture.
Why is our environment damaging to the skin? As we go about our day, our skin is exposed to many different pollutants - smoke, dirt particles, and many more depending on where you are located. Vitamin C has reducing properties that allow it to eliminate the threat of free radicals, protecting the skin from the pollutants mentioned. Which is why it works so well paired with an SPF as the sunscreen protects the skin from harmful UV rays of the sun.
Our new Touch Collagen Moisturizer contains not only Vitamin C, but also Vitamin E and A, working as a powerful moisturizer for protecting the skin from the pollutants in the environment. The combination of all three antioxidants brings protective and hydrating properties to the skin, working effectively to protect and hydrate the skin throughout the day.
Pair the Touch Collagen Moisturizer with our Anti-Aging SPF Moisturizer before you hit the beach this summer, and your skin will thank you with its impeccable glow! For the Touch Collagen Moisturizer, apply a thin layer daily to the face and neck area and then immediately follow up by applying a generous amount of the Anti-Aging SPF Moisturizer to the skin for the best results.
