We have seen and heard about innumerable powerful benefits from Vitamin C Serum. The hype around this particular serum ingredient never dies down. As a matter of fact, its significance in skincare routines just magnifies with the passing days. We are about to launch our Skin Repair Serum on June 20th, which is power packed with the goodness of 5% Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Sodium Hyaluronate and Niacinamide. Now why is it a holy-grail serum?
Vitamin C comes in many forms such as L-ascorbic acid, ascorbyl-6-palmitate, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate and it works wonders for the skin if applied on the skin daily with a moisturizer. These are commonly available in gel/water based serums which can be found in drug stores as well as high end luxury stores.
Let’s look at some of the benefits of using Vitamin C Serum -
Prevents sun damage – Vitamin C prevents damage from UV rays by neutralizing free radicals from the skin’s surface. It is advised to put vitamin c cream or serum along with sunscreen for optimum protection
Boosts collagen - Vitamin C plays a critical role in the maintenance of a normal mature collagen network in humans by preventing the auto-inactivation of lysyl and prolyl hyroxylase, two key enzymes required for collagen production.
Prevents ageing – Vitamin C boosts collagen production which leads to reduction in wrinkles and better skin texture which in turn results in younger looking healthy skin.
Treats acne and blemishes- Vitamin C serum has anti-inflammatory properties which helps in healing the redness and swelling related to acne.
Improve appearance – Due to Vitamin C’s healing properties, it works on the skin to reduce dark spots and acne scars to improve skin appearance.
Reduces hyperpigmentation – Vitamin C inhibits the production of melanin, which helps in managing discoloration and evens out skin tone.
Who should use Vitamin C Serum?
Anyone going through these skin issues – dry skin, hyperpigmentation, acne, scars, wrinkles, sun damage, sagging and dull skin, should definitely incorporate Vitamin C serum in their daily skincare routine. Vitamin C is known for its anti-ageing properties and this can also mean that you start using this serum as a preventative measure before you start seeing signs of ageing.
Which Vitamin C Serum should be purchased?
There are many different forms of Vitamin C serums available in the market. These serums come in a range of prices and concentration levels. The level of percentage present in Vitamin C determines its effectiveness on the skin.
5% Vitamin C serums are gentle and should be used by people with sensitive skin. The highest concentration peaks to 20% which can give quick results in skin’s appearance.
It is advised to start out with a low concentration and work your way up as your skin grows accustomed to the ingredient. Experts suggest using Vitamin C serum which also contains Vitamin E as it accelerates better delivery of Vitamin C. This serum works well on all skin types and initiates skin repair, regeneration and renewal.
