The Benefits of Vitamin C in Skin Care


By Victoria Shelton, Skincare Expert

With so many products to choose from, it can feel overwhelming when looking to create a skincare routine. Incorporating Vitamin C is a great place to start as it targets several very common skincare concerns, and comes in a myriad of different formulas, so you’re guaranteed to find a product that works with your skin type!

Protect your Skin

Skincare with Vitamin C protects the skin from free radical damage, which is one of the leading causes of signs of aging in the skin. Free radicals are unstable atoms that can damage skin cells by breaking down our collagen. Vital antioxidants, like Vitamin C, bind to free radicals, which prevent them from attaching to healthy skin cells and causing damage to them. When it comes to taking care of your skin, prevention is always key!

Fade Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is one of the most common skincare concerns and one that can take dedicated time and effort to rectify. Amongst its numerous benefits, Vitamin C skincare can be a fantastic tool to fade and prevent unwanted pigmentation. Vitamin C helps to prevent the formation of excess melanin by inhibiting the activity of the enzyme tyrosinase which is essential for the formation of pigmentation.

Boost Collagen Production

Collagen is what gives our complexion that coveted plumpness and elasticity. As we age, our natural collagen decreases, which can lead to skin that looks and feels lax and dehydrated. To combat this, a collagen replenishing treatment, such as those rich in Vitamin C, can help restore your skin’s bounce.

For all the benefits of Vitamin C, with extra special attention paid to anti-aging, the Environ Youth Essentia C-Quence serum is ideal. Containing high concentrations of vitamin A, C and E, this serum helps to combat the visible signs of aging. These essential antioxidants increase production of collagen and elastin, restoring tone, texture and radiance to the skin.
