Why Vitamin C for your skin is a must!

Whenever I recommend Vitamin C to a client, naturally their thoughts go to oranges or supplements (which is completely fair!) but I’m actually talking about Vitamin C use topically. Topical use of Vitamin C is one if the most important things you can do for your skin, dare I say it’s up there next to SPF! In fact, they go hand in hand.

Vitamin C helps keep our skin’s defense against sun damage (and environmental damage) so add your SPF and you’re in good shape!

Now Vitamin C is tricky, not all Vitamin C products can be absorbed through the skin. It has to be formulated just right, now we won’t go into the deep science behind it but generally if your dermatologist or a medical spa sells it, you can absorb it.

So what are the benefits of Vitamin C? Oh the list is endless- Vitamin C, as mentioned earlier, helps us build a defense against both sun damage and pollution which helps us keep our collagen and helps rebuild it as well! It also is crucial to the aging process by lightening, brightening and hydrating skin! Just like the we need Vitamin C in our diet for our immune systems and overall health, we need it topically for our skin for essentially the same reasons. Best part?
