But did you know it\u0026#39;s also a skin care powerhouse? Topical Vitamin C is one of the most potent antioxidants available – and it lives up to the hype, effectively tackling the primary causes of premature aging to give you brighter, firmer skin.Here\u0026#39;s a breakdown of what a daily dose of Vitamin C can do for your skin!brightenOver time, intrinsic (natural) and extrinsic (environmental) factors cause structural changes in the skin, leading to uneven pigmentation. From UV-induced “age spots” to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, dark spots are no match for Vitamin C: it helps stop the causes of uneven pigmentation to effectively brighten skin.firmAnother major benefit of Vitamin C is that it renews skin\u0026#39;s surface. It boosts production of substances that keep skin looking firm, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.defendThis is where Vitamin C’s antioxidant properties really come into play. Vitamin C helps counteract the effects of oxidative stress and free radicals from sunlight, pollutants and chemicals by neutralizing damaging molecules, which help defend the skin against aging. But – here’s the really exciting part – the latest research also shows that Vitamin C actually enhances your skin’s natural defense system, helping it to protect itself from oxidative stress.There’s just one caveat. In order for topical Vitamin C to actually help brighten, firm and defend skin, it has to get into skin – and many formulas contain unstable ingredients and forms of Vitamin C that lose efficacy before they even touch your skin. The most well-known forms of vitamin C are:L-ascorbic acid—in other words, pure Vitamin C. This form tends to be the strongest.Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate: Penetrates deeply and effectively into your skin.Magnesium ascorbyl phosphate: Can increase hydration levels in dry skin and prevent water loss.Sodium ascorbyl phosphate: Usually has a neutral pH, which makes it gentle for sensitive skin.To make sure you get the most out of your Vitamin C formulas, choose one with stable ingredients that can get where skin needs it most.
