Vitamin C Benefits For Skin: The Key to Immunity & Glowing Skin
Hailed as a wonder supplement, Vitamin C helps to keep your immune system strong and healthy. With its ability to support our immune system being so well supported, nutritionists are urging us to top up our vitamin C regularly as our bodies aren't able to store this water-soluble vitamin.
What Is Vitamin C?
A powerful antioxidant, vitamin C helps to strengthen your body's defences.
Vitamin C is full of Antioxidants that deliver powerful protection for your cells against harmful molecules called free radicals. When free radicals accumulate, they promote a state called oxidative stress which has been linked to many chronic diseases. Whether we include antioxidants in our diet or apply them topically on our skin, they are vital to our health and an essential part of any home skincare routine.
How Do Antioxidants Help Your Skin?
Antioxidants in our skincare products help to slow down environmental damage and not only protect against UV damage (alongside a good SPF of course), but also help repair and restore skin. This antioxidant support helps to:
- Reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles
- Evens out skin tone
- Helps with loss of collagen and elastin
- Makes skin looks visibly brighter
- Helps skin feel firmer combined with a healthy glow
Vitamin C for face is the most well known antioxidant and is often used alongside Vitamin E and Ferulic Acid in serum formulations to maximise the results and efficacy. At Face the Future, we always recommend a good antioxidant product as part of a daily regime; apply it after cleansing and before your sunscreen.
Vitamin C concentrate
Our best-selling antioxidant serum and our Content Manager, Jess's, personal favourite is Mesoestetic AOX Ferulic. "This state-of-the-art antioxidant concentrate contains Ascorbic Acid, which is the purest form of Vitamin C at a high concentration of 15%." Jess says. " Alongside ascorbic acid, 0.5% ferulic acid protects skin's fibroblasts from light radiation and sun-induced inflammation. Vitamin E and peptides in the exclusive protech-cell complex at 1.5%, strengthens the antioxidant action by providing skin with protection against harmful light exposure." Apply morning and evening to make the most of its restorative properties and the immediate radiance-boosting effect on skin.
Vitamin C supplement
Vitamin C not only supports immunity, it also supports skin collagen levels. Vitamin C builds collagen by twisting and strengthening your collagen strands and increasing collagen synthesis eight times over. Advanced Nutrition Programme Skin Vit C is formulated with three innovative ingredients: Vitamin C, Zinc and Acerola Berry to brighten dull skin, deliver antioxidant protection and support skin, hair and nails. The plant-based capsules are suitable for vegan and vegetarian lifestyles.
