Why is vitamin C. for the skin
so important ?
Vitamin C is the product for beautiful skin. But what does vitamin C do for the skin? How is it used and in what form does it develop its full effect? These questions will be answered here.
What exactly is vitamin C?
Vitamin C fulfills many important functions in our body. The immune system is strengthened, wound healing is promoted, it helps to strengthen our connective tissue and much more. There are different forms of vitamin C for the skin. Ascorbic acid is known to have caring properties for the skin. From a concentration of 15%, this substance unfolds its full effect on the skin and is therefore a true beauty booster.
What does vitamin C do for the skin?
Vitamin C is a real all-rounder. It makes superficial pigment spots less visible and gives dull and blotchy skin a visible glow. In addition, the skin is protected from irritation, inflammation and environmental pollution. Vitamin C supports the skin's healing process and thus combats red spots and acne. It also improves the effectiveness of sunscreens and protects the skin better against UV rays.
Vitamin C for healthy skin
Vitamin C offers effective protection against harmful environmental influences such as solar radiation or air pollution. These environmental influences destroy the cell membranes, lipids and proteins that are essential for healthy skin. Vitamin C ensures that these influences do not damage our skin and thus ensures healthy skin.
Vitamin C against wrinkles
Collagen is the substance that makes our skin resilient and prevents wrinkles. Vitamin C protects the collagen structure and at the same time supports the production of new collagen in our body. This means the skin stays smooth longer.
Vitamin C for acne, redness and pigment spots
In the treatment of acne, vitamin C is a very effective helper for the skin, as this substance is anti-inflammatory. In addition, vitamin C counteracts the formation of age spots and protects the skin from UV rays, which favor age spots.
How should vitamin C be used?
It is important to note that this substance loses its effectiveness if it is exposed to air or light. Therefore, only products made from opaque bottles should be used. The vitamin C serum is applied in the morning so that your skin is protected all day.
Who is the use of vitamin C suitable for?
Vitamin C can be used by all skin types. Nevertheless, someone with sensitive skin should make sure to use products with vitamin C in alternation with a milder product, as high-dose products can sometimes cause irritation.
Which Form Of Vitamin C Is The Best?
Which form of vitamin C is best for the skin cannot be said in general terms. There are many different forms of vitamin C for external use. Pure vitamin C works quickly and directly, but it cannot be processed into a cream because it is prone to oxidation and decomposes quickly. Therefore, vitamin C can only be applied to the skin in the form of a serum. It is important to ensure that as little air as possible gets into the serum, as the vitamin C loses its effect so quickly.
Which dose is right for me?
Research has shown that a concentration of 0.6% vitamin C has a positive effect on the complexion. Concentrations of 15% - 20% are recommended. However, the higher the level, the more attractive it is. And be careful: the effect decreases again from a concentration of 20%. Too high a concentration of vitamin C can have disadvantages. The skin is easily irritated or redness may appear.
