The bottom line here?
Once you try vitamin C serums, you won’t want to sleep on this skincare step any longer.
What is Vitamin C Serum?
Though vitamin C serums have a bundle of beautiful benefits (which, we’ll get to in a moment), the ultimate goal of a C serum is this—glowing, gauze, beautiful complexion.
Essentially, vitamin C serum is exactly as it sounds. It’s a concentrated antioxidant that can be used topically to treat and prevent changes associated with aging, can fight hyperpigmentation, and can smooth out complexions to give them an exceptional boost of vibrancy.
Vitamin C serums are acidic, which means all those dead skin cells that can clog up your complexion are seamlessly sloughed away, ensuring that your skin is brighter, cleaner, and smoother. Because of this process, new cell regeneration is expedited, “healing” your skin quickly and accelerating the production of collagen and elastin. Both of these (collagen and elastin) are protein fibers that make your skin look plump and keeps it from sagging, so expediting this process can be a real help in getting your skin to heal and look healthier and younger than ever.
Think of it this way—that glass of vitamin C packed orange juice has come highly recommended by your doctor, right? Well, vitamin C has exceptional topical benefits for your skin, too.
What kind of benefits? We’re so glad you asked. Keep reading to get a glimpse of some of the (many, many) benefits that a quality vitamin C serum can provide.
Our List of Benefits from a Quality Vitamin C Serum:
We’ve already made it clear that vitamin C is all about bringing the glow back to lackluster, dull skin, but we’ve got good news—that’s not all that vitamin C serums can do for a complexion.
1. Hydration Station
Hydration is everything for your skin, so if we’re boasting about a product, you can bet it has wonderful hydration benefits. vitamin C, which is made up of magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, has been shown to have hydrating effects on skin because it decreases water loss and enables your skin to better retain its moisture.
2. Hyperpigmentation Be Gone
Sunspots, age spots, melasma—you name it, vitamin C serums can help. How? Hyperpigmentation happens in areas where melanin has been overproduced and vitamin C has been shown to impede melanin production, which of course, can help fade-out dark spots and allow your clients to finally attain that even-toned complexion they’re searching for.
3. Plump Up Under-Eye Circles
With all that hydration and all those collagen and elastin boosting factors, it’s probably no surprise that vitamin C serums can plump up those under-eye circles. Those fine lines in your under-eye area might not entirely disappear, but with a healthy dose of vitamin C, they’ll likely plump up quickly!
5. Holy Grail Sun Protectant
No, we’re not saying that adding-in a vitamin C serum means you can do away with your SPF (never, ever do that). But, we do recommend adding a C serum into your routine to help better protect your skin from sun damage. Sun damage is caused by molecules called free radicals, which are atoms that are missing an electron. Because they’re missing this “ingredient” they generally search for other atoms where they can steal an electron—which can seriously damage your skin. Vitamin C serums are overflowing with antioxidants, and antioxidants, as you know, help protect healthy skin cells by giving these free radicals and electron to use (without stealing your skin’s). Pro tip—it also can help soothe sunburns!
