Vitamin C is one of the most potent, powerhouse antioxidants around. With a long list of health benefits for your skin, vitamin C is the go-to ingredient for collagen production and protecting your skin against free radical damage.
We've all been there. You wake up feeling a little under the weather and immediately reach for vitamin C. Not only is this vitamin the holy-grail of cold and flu season, it has also become the hot topic in skin care.
Vitamin C is said to be one of the best ingredients on the market for aging skin and the key to maintaining a smooth, even, glowing complexion. Because vitamin C is an antioxidant, it helps prevent the forming of free radicals, which go on to break down collagen and elastin.
Vitamin C in skin care:
Fights free radicals
Supports skins moisture barrier
Boosts skin cell regeneration
Increases collagen production
Helps to even out complexion
By now you’re probably wondering how much vitamin C packed foods you need to eat in a day to reap the benefits. Unfortunately, eating more oranges and cantaloupe isn’t going to cut it. Why? Because the epidermis (outermost layer of the skin) doesn’t have blood vessels to send nutrients to the skin cells. Using serums and other topical products is the most direct way to reap the benefits of vitamin C.
Fun fact: Vitamin C is used in ALL @eminenceorganics products in various concentrations. You can be sure they have you covered!
