Antioxidants have long been recognized for their role in improving overall health and even reducing risk of some diseases. The use of antioxidant containing ingredients can also be miraculous for the skin. However, knowing what the effects of a certain kind of antioxidant are and which one in particular meets the needs of your skin problems is something that no one really tells you about. One of the safest antioxidants to use for every skin type is vitamin C. Here are some benefits of vitamin C for the skin and how one can use it safely:
Skin benefits of Vitamin C
From fighting UV damage and preventing wrinkles to evening out skin tone, vitamin C is one antioxidant that can even be used on its own. While vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant itself, using a product that comes loaded with other antioxidants as well can have an even bigger impact. In addition to boosting collagen production, an antioxidant based product can make the skin tone even and reduce dark spots, making the skin look fresh and radiant.
When to Apply Vitamin C Serum
The best thing about using a vitamin C serum is that you don’t need to worry about an exact time for putting it on. However, for better results, the ideal times are in the morning and before bed so the product has more time to stay on the skin and get soaked in. With the whole day ahead of you in the morning, using a combination of vitamin C and hyaluronic acid is a good idea to lock in the moisture and prevent sun damage. For using something that packs an even bigger punch like a concentrated serum, right before bed is the perfect time since the skin has more time to soak in the product as you sleep and work its magic.
Knowing what you need in life is important, but knowing what your skin needs is important too. A serum full of antioxidants can make your skin look more youthful and make the texture smoother and supple for a more confident you.
