From a young age I learned the importance of Vitamin C. It helped me get better when I was sick, it stopped my apples from turning brown and, most importantly, it wrote that amazing “Graduation” song. All jokes aside, Vitamin C is a powerhouse antioxidant that helps protect cells from the damage caused by free radicals and maintains bones, skin, and blood vessels. So you might be wondering, “if Vitamin C does all of that internally, why do I need to apply it externally?” When applied to skin, Vitamin C fights off daily aggressors like UV damage and air pollution, both which prematurely age skin. It also promotes collagen and elastin production (protein fibers that keep skin plump), because Vitamin C’s acidic nature triggers a healing response. If that wasn’t enough, this miracle ingredient also inhibits unwanted melanin production, like hyperpigmentation and sun damage. If Vitamin C is not already a daily part of your morning routine, I urge you to run and get some ASAP. Simply apply after cleansing and toning, and you’re protected all day.
