The skin has different needs based on the seasons we find ourselves in. UV rays from the sun cause significant damage to the skin and often lead to premature aging. Because of this, many skincare ingredients promise substantial effects on the quality of our skin. Among those ingredients, vitamin C has become the most notable, as it can strengthen the body from the inside out.

Whether you want to use a vitamin C serum at home or have the Skin Medicas Vitamin C Serum infused through a DiamondGlow™ treatment, Dermacare has your back! Since vitamin C has so many positive benefits for the skin, the Vitamin C Brightening Serum has become one of the most important aspects of our Core4 products. In this blog, you can learn more about this ingredient and why it should be part of every skincare routine. 

How Does Vitamin C Work?

Also referred to as ascorbic acid, vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can help protect the skin against free radicals. While free radicals are not that dangerous when found in small quantities, they can cause great damage when they build up. Left alone, these free radicals not only lead to premature aging, but they can also trigger a variety of illnesses.

Antioxidants like vitamin C are used to fight free radicals and prevent them from causing harm to the body. Vitamin C helps to keep things in balance, stopping the damaging cells from increasing in number. Used together with an antioxidant-rich diet, vitamin C can lead to healthier skin. 

Benefits of Vitamin C 

Vitamin C brings a series of benefits to the table, which include the following:

1. Combats Signs of Aging

Vitamin C can promote collagen synthesis, and its antioxidant effect keeps you safe from free radicals. This prevents premature aging (skin sagging and the appearance of age spots). Adding vitamin C into a nightly routine can rejuvenate your features, making you look more youthful as the signs of aging decrease. Future symptoms are also prevented from progressing, as the skin barrier remains strong over time. 

2. Decreases Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is very often a byproduct of sun exposure, which changes how certain enzymes behave in the body. When you get too much sun exposure, the enzyme tyrosinase produces more melanin, which causes dark spots on the skin. Vitamin C has shown an ability to inhibit that enzyme to decrease the chances of pigmentation. 

3. Evens Out Skin Tone

Vitamin C also has a bleaching effect, which helps you reduce existing spots on the skin. No matter if they are brown or red spots, this ingredient can diminish discoloration and restore radiance. Vitamin C also has anti-inflammatory effects that help soothe redness, thereby making it an effective treatment against rosacea and weakened blood vessels.

4. Reduces Wrinkles

Oxidative stress caused by UV exposure can break down collagen bonds in the skin, which can lead to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C counters that by boosting collagen, so that wrinkles don’t form in the first place. And even if they form before you incorporate the serum into your routine, the creases should become less noticeable with regular treatment. 

5. Protects Against Sun Damage

When the skin is exposed to the sun, free radicals can trigger inflammatory responses as well as DNA damage. The latter is one of the most critical factors in cancer development, which many people prevent by using sunblock. That said, vitamin C can neutralize those free radicals to reduce the chances of sun damage and keep the skin healthy.
