If there was just one skincare product you could take to the grave, which one would pick? We’d definitely pick one with vitamin C! Did you know it has the power to tone the skin, prevent premature aging, provide sun protection as well as boost skin cells renewal. Is there any skin concern this product can’t tackle? We don’t think so!
Vitamin C has been a rich undiscovered treasure for the longest time and it’s loaded with skin benefits. This certainly does not imply that one can rub lemon juice (a major source of vitamin C) on their skin and expect ‘flawless’ skin within a day. No matter what you read under the “home remedies for glowing skin section,” never apply lemon juice on your skin. It is highly concentrated and can cause burns on your delicate skin.
Instead add a product infused with vitamin C in your skincare routine to reap maximum benefits. Need help with that? We’ve got some products that will surely get you hooked. But first, let’s learn a bit more about our hero ingredient - vitamin C.
What are the Forms of Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is present in skincare products in the form of Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate, or Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate. Experts often recommend adding Vitamin C serum in your AM and PM skincare routine. In the morning, apply the serum on cleansed face and follow it up with a moisturizer and sunscreen. We recommend mCaffeine’s Vitamin C & Green Tea Face Serum for healthy and problem-free skin. It’s not just packed with all the goodness of Vitamin C but the presence of Green Tea calms & soothes skin and provides sun damage protection!
Vitamin C Reduces Acne
Vitamin C is rich in antioxidants that help protect the skin from environmental aggressors and fight acne causing bacteria. The anti-inflammatory properties in this ingredient also accelerates the healing process of existing acne, lesions and dark spots.
Vitamin C Protects the Skin From Sun Damage
The sun can damage your skin in more ways than you can imagine. This is why stepping out of the house without applying sunscreen is a major skincare sin. While applying sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 is necessary to protect your skin, including Vitamin C can help reverse existing sun damage. Vitamin C boosts cell turnover and helps replace dead/damaged skin cells with newer and healthier cells. It not only heals the skin but also prevents further damage.
Vitamin C Reduces Dark Spots & Hyperpigmentation
Vitamin C has anti-pigmentation properties, as a result when applied to the skin, it alters the functions of skin enzymes that are responsible for melanin production. Melanin is the pigment that determines the color of your skin, hair, and eyes. mCaffeine’s Green Tea Night Gel with Vitamin C is a great pick for reducing dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Oh, and let’s not forget the overnight hydration your skin can soak in with this sleeping mask! Waking up with soft and plump skin feels good, doesn’t it? Being hooked to good has its perks 😉
Isn’t Vitamin C a true gem? But before you start, remember using Vitamin C in your routine must always be followed with sunscreen. Vitamin C may make your skin sensitive while it does the rest of the magic. Using the two products religiously will get you closer to your skin goals within no time! If you have sensitive skin, consult a dermatologist and research before you use higher than usual concentrated Vitamin C in your skincare routine.
