Vitamin C : The Holy Grail of Skin Care Ingredients



The most common advice that people give to attain healthy skin is to drink 7-8 glasses of water. Most of us follow that rule and even after months of trying, we sometimes fail to see that glow, hydrated and even tone look on the skin. But how often have we wondered if the water that we drink even reaches the epidermis level of the skin? Well, not everything that we eat or drink reaches the skin layers to get visible results. Similarly, adding vitamin C to your diet in form of citrus fruits etc does not guarantee the same results on the skin as the topical application of Vitamin C. Using serums and other topical products is the most direct way to reap any skin benefits. So before you go and raid that grocery section, you may want to check out the beauty section to reap its benefits.


Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals and help prevent early aging signs, pigmentation, dullness, uneven skin texture by helping the skin to build more collagen.


I recommend adding a Vitamin C serum to your skincare routine slowly before building up a daily tolerance. Apply it every other day to daily use in the morning, typically three to five drops for the entire face. Also do not expect to see results over night. It takes time and consistent application to see best results. The best form of Vitamin C for skin care would be in serum form, because serums are more effective than creams and toners.


Benefits of Vitamin C:


1) Hydration: it decreases trans-epidermal water loss, allowing skin to better retain moisture.

2) Brightening: It can impede melanin production, which can help fade dark spots and help achieving a more even toned skin.

3) Protect against sun damage and free radicals: It is a rich source of antioxidants, which can help combat the effect of free radicals.

4) Anti aging: since it is acidic in nature, the skin is triggered to heal itself by accelerating production of collagen and elastin. Hence, prevents premature aging and sagging.


Please note: some preparations contain ascorbic acid, which is the natural form of Vitamin C. Most people can use topical Vitamin C for an extended period of time without experiencing any reactions but few people who have hypersensitive skin can have a minor irritation or breakout by adding this product to their skin regime. So consult with your dermatologist before adding it to your skin care basket.


Celebridey Highlights:


· Adding Vitamin C to my skin care regime has definitely helped me see a more even and brighter skin tone

· You still must drink those 7-8 glasses of water for overall health benefits

· I like to use my Vitamin C in the morning post cleansing. I follow it up with a moisturizer and a sunscreen (which is a must)

· Getting enough Vitamin C dose in your diet does not guarantee its reach to the epidermis level of the skin for skin benefits

· Always consult your dermatologist before adding anything new to your skincare regime
