Benefits of Vitamin C on the skin:
Vitamin C is an active illuminating, anti-wrinkle, anti-aging and anti-oxidant ingredient that is present in many men's cosmetic products. This ingredient is super beneficial for the face, and here's why:
- Brightening active: vitamin C helps you to even out the tone of your skin tone by giving it a natural light so that you always look radiant.
- Anti-aging and anti-wrinkle active ingredient: vitamin C helps the formation of collagen and elastin of the skin. This is very beneficial for our face, since with age, our skin increasingly lacks collagen creating expression lines and wrinkles on our face. Thanks to vitamin C, you will get rid of the feeling of facial flaccidity. In this way you will delay the visible signs of aging.
- Antioxidant active ingredient: vitamin C will prevent the premature aging of your skin. Such aging can be caused by sun exposure, through stress, due to pollution or because of free radicals in our skin. Thus, you will achieve firm and youthful skin for longer.
- Other benefits: vitamin C ascorbic acid (i.e, pure vitamin C), will improve the iron absorption of your skin, will repair the tissues of your face and neutralize the free radicals which cause oxidative stress in the skin.
The million dollar question: When to apply vitamin C?
Vitamin C is an ingredient that is recommended to be used both in your facial routine day and night. However, if our intention is to apply it to our face once a day only, we should do it in the mornings. Why? Because in this way we will take advantage of all its benefits during the day, such as the luminosity it gives to our skin, for example.
In addition, the vitamin C acts as the first layer of sun protection on our face, so it will benefit us to apply it in the morning. However, keep in mind that the vitamin C does not replace sun protection so it is always a good idea to apply sunscreen on our face.
