Vitamin C Skin Care – Is It All That Hype?

If you are someone who cares about the integrity of your skin and strives for a more youthful, glowing and even skin tone, Vitamin C serum is for you. To achieve that healthy skin texture this product will help you to get the results that you are looking for. But why vitamin C and what are its benefits?

Vitamin C, also called, ascorbic acid, is an important antioxidant that neutralizes freeradicals which can damage skin. Free radicals are one of the leading causes of prematurely aged skin and can come from many sources such as environmental factors, stress, smoking and alcohol to name a few. These free radicals cause damage that appears on the surface of the skin as wrinkles, fine lines and brown spots.

Topical antioxidants help eliminate this by:

Stimulating collagen synthesis.

Decreasing inflammation.

Suppressing hyperpigmentation.

Retaining moisture.

Enhancing UV protection.

Replenishing vitamin E.

There are countless skin care products on the market that contain vitamin C and their claims may include one or more of the previous benefits. As a consumer you must be well informed about what you are purchasing and keep in mind that it must contain a sufficient amount of ascorbic acid to achieve these results.
