What are vitamin C’s benefits for skin?
This vitamin is so abundantly available that it is rare to be deficient in it. And what is rarer is finding someone who knows all about this wonder vitamin – the benefits of vitamin C. And that’s true, isn’t it? Not all of us know what this vitamin has to offer us. Hence, this post. Keep reading.
1. Aid In Collagen Production
Vitamin C helps rejuvenate the skin
Vitamin C is a required component for the production of hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine, both of which are needed to bind the molecules that produce collagen. This, in turn, firms and tones the skin. Collagen deficiency makes the skin dull and lifeless. Collagen rejuvenates the skin from the roots and reduces wrinkles and symptoms of aging.
2. Protect against sun damage
Vitamin C help reduce the effects of sun exposure
The antioxidant properties of vitamin C play a role in collagen synthesis, and they help in treating sunburn. Oral vitamin C intake or topical application of vitamin C oil can help improve the condition. But it is important to note that vitamin C must only be used as an addition to sunscreen, not a replacement.
Vitamin C was also found to reduce the effects of UVB-induced erythema (superficial reddening of the skin).
3. Exfoliate your skin
Exfoliating your skin with vitamin C
Vitamin C protects DNA from photochemical reactions that can lead to tumor, skin discoloration, and several kinds of skin cancer. This is because Vitamin C can exfoliate the skin gently, removing the thick, rough skin layer. At the same time, it helps to prevent bacterial damage to the skin.
4. Hydrate and moisturize
Collagen also provides the structure for the blood vessels. The tiny blood vessels under the skin carry oxygen and nutrients that keep the skin healthy. Without enough nutrients, the skin will become rough and dry. Vitamin C increases the formation of elastin, which thickens, protects, and heals the skin cells. The thickening effect helps retain moisture, increases the skin circulation, and plumps up the skin surface.
5. Prevent acne
In addition to boosting immune system, vitamin C increases the resistance of the skin. It also helps fight infections and remove toxins from your body and reduce acne.
Besides, many studies have shown that Vitamin C supplements will help to reduce wrinkles, bruises or scars, especially those caused by acne.
