Is Vitamin C good for skincare?

Topical Vitamin C is a science-backed, dermatologist-favorite natural ingredient that may help slow early, premature skin aging, prevent sun damage, and improve the appearance of wrinkles, dark/sun spots, acne. Preventing sun damage aids in protecting against skin cancer and photoaging.

Vitamin C is an antioxidant, it fights harmful external radicals (toxins) that are in contact with your skin from pollution, ultraviolet sun rays or from inside your body from normal processes like your metabolism.  Applying topical Vitamin C removes harmful free radicals and promotes the skin’s overall appearance. Topical Vitamin C used in combination with a broad-spectrum sunscreen further protects the skin from harmful ultraviolet rays that cause skin cancer and skin aging.

Clinical studies demonstrate that Vitamin C can improve wrinkles.  One study showed daily use of vitamin C formulation for at least three months improved the appearance of fine and coarse wrinkles of the face and neck and overall skin texture and appearance.  Vitamin C plays a role in boosting collagen and promoting a brighter complexion.  Combining Vitamin C with other topical natural ingredients can help diminish blemishes, redness, promote a youthful complexion and help protect the skin from long-term/chronic sun damage. 

Can I use Vitamin C every day?

Vitamin C for skincare is generally safe to use every day.  However, depending on your skin type, if using other products or prescriptions, the Vitamin C concentration or formulation i.e. serum, gel, lotion or cream, you may have to modify use.
