Skincare is a topic that most women struggle with, especially due to the numerous products available in the market these days. However, there is one ingredient that people are raving abou, and after using it, I realized it is absolutely miraculous for the skin: Vitamin C.
Vitamin C has always been known to be an important ingredient that is extremely beneficial for the body. Vitamin C is needed for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of the body. It is used to heal wounds, form scar tissue, and create an important protein that is essential for the body.
When it comes to skincare in specific, vitamin C is a magical ingredient that can have numerous benefits for the skin. If you’re looking for a vitamin C serum to add to your routine, we recommend Uriage’s Depiderm serum as it contains 10 times higher concentration of vitamin C than any other serum on the market.
In this article, we’ll explain why vitamin C is such a magical ingredient and the benefits it has on your skin.
Helps protect against sun damage
Because vitamin C contains antioxidants, it can help protect your skin from the damages caused by UV light. However, it is still essential that you apply sunscreen as vitamin C does not replace SPF and cannot absorb UVA or UVB rays. Instead, vitamin C works as a form of protection that can reduce the harm if the UV light gets into your skin.
Reduces skin pigmentation
Having different tones on your skin is natural, but for some women, skin pigmentation can feel like a fault. If you’re looking to unify or lighten dark spots, vitamin C based skincare products are perfect for hyperpigmentation. That’s what makes Uriage’s Depiderm White Serum a great product to treat hyperpigmentation as it contains 10 times more vitamin C than other products. However, be patient as it could take up to 16 weeks to see a significant change.
Most anti-aging products contain vitamin C as it acts as a powerful ingredient that significantly reduces the appearance of wrinkles. The dosage of vitamin C in Uriage’s Depiderm Serum will help smooth out wrinkles and make your skin look healthier and younger.
Aids in collagen production
The most important protein the skin needs is collagen. While it is naturally found in your skin, the production of collagen decreases as one starts to age. However, when vitamin C is applied to the skin, it aids in collagen growth. This is an essential ingredient that prevents the skin from sagging.
If you have open sores or scars, vitamin C can help heal them faster. When applying vitamin C-based skin care product to your skin, it helps close open sores and makes scars less visible.
