WHAT ARE THE SKIN BENEFITS OF VITAMIN C?
There are different forms of the antioxidant but the most common is Ascorbic Acid which has the highest potency and absorbs the quickest into the skin.
Daily use of Vitamin C is so important before exposing your skin to the sun to help reduce the signs of aging while providing antioxidant protection. The trendy ingredient of the moment is super essential in a healthy skincare routine and great to fix so many problems from dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles, collagen production, dullness, and firmness.
HOW TO USE VITAMIN C IN YOUR SKIN CARE ROUTINE
The first step starts with the proper face wash each morning and night to remove, makeup and sweat. Vitamin C Serum should be used during the day! Never combine Vitamin C + Vitamin A as they tend to cancel each other out. It doesn’t harm your skin, you just get no benefit from either! Retinol or Retin-A is used at night after cleansing!

WHAT VITAMIN C SERUM DO YOU RECOMMEND?
We are big fans of Halcyon Skin Care Vitamin C Serum. This non-acneic (frequently sold out) serum doesn’t oxidize as quickly as others due to citrus stem cells from oranges, and Caribbean orange oil.
WHY VITAMIN C
Vitamin C is famous for being found in citrus fruits. It’s exactly what saved sailors from scurvy back-in-the-day. Scurvy is a condition caused by vitamin C deficiency – without vitamin C, collagen breaks down and everything your body makes collagen with e.g. skin, gums, soft tissues – bleeds and falls apart.
Vitamin C is thought of as orange. You get a nice dose from an orange, but vitamin C dissolved into water is not orange. It’s clear. #BrainTwister
Vitamin C serum benefits skin in many ways. It’s an antioxidant (say goodbye to environmental ageing), it’s a collagen builder (say hello voluminous skin) and it’s a skin tone brightener (welcome that youthful glow).
Vitamin C should be included in your skin care routine if you are over the age of 25.
SO WHAT ARE THE SKIN BENEFITS OF VITAMIN C?
Too many to count! Vitamin C serum is an essential step in any skin care regimen. These synergistic, high-concentration antioxidants are designed for optimized absorption in skin to help prevent free radical damage which leads to the appearance of premature aging.
Vitamin C for skin can also improve the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration.
