6 Reasons Why Use Vitamin C Serum in the Morning
Have you ever wondered why so many skincare products contain vitamin C as their main ingredient? The answer is quite simple, this powerful antioxidant has multiple benefits on your skin. From protecting the skin from damage caused by free radicals to brightening and giving it the radiance it deserves, vitamin C is a boon to the beauty industry. In case you need more convincing, here are 6 reasons you should start your morning skincare routine with vitamin C.
Reasons you should add vitamin C to your morning skincare routine:
1. Protects skin from free radicals
Environmental factors like UV radiation, pollution and smoking can cause free radicals that trigger oxidative stress and damage the skin cells. Using a vitamin C serum in the morning can work wonders as this potent antioxidant neutralises these free radicals and protects your skin from getting damaged. Wondering how to use vitamin C serum in the morning? Simply pour a few drops of the serum on your palm and dab the product on your face and neck using gentle tapping motion.
2. Boosts production of collagen
Collagen is a protein that is necessary for the proper functioning of your epidermis. Your body produces less collagen as you get older, which causes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Collagen also helps the skin to heal itself after getting sun damaged. Vitamin C boosts the production of collagen and thus having a morning skincare routine with vitamin C is essential. Using vitamin C can help make your skin smoother and firmer.
3. Brightens your skin and reduces hyperpigmentation and dark spots
Vitamin C is popularly known for its brightening properties. It evens out your skin tone, and reduces the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. It also works by preventing the synthesis of melanin, the pigment responsible for the colour of your skin. An easy way to reap this benefit is to use a vitamin C-enriched gel facewash to eliminate dirt, dust and impurities from your skin and give it a brighter, youthful appearance within a few days.
4. Reduces inflammation
If you have sensitive skin that turns red and inflames easily due to harsh sun rays or some physical activity, then using products infused with vitamin C are the ideal choice for you. You should hydrate your skin with a vitamin C cream to control hyperpigmentation and sooth the redness cause by inflammation. You can try the Bright Complete Vitamin C UV cream infused with Japanese Yuzu Lemon that reduces the damage caused by harmful UV rays.
5. Improves the texture of your skin
Vitamin C can help enhance the skin texture by promoting cell turnover and exfoliation. It works by dissolving the bonds that hold dead skin cells together, enabling them to be easily broken away. Having a morning skincare routine with vitamin C can help you kickstart your day with smoother, even textured skin. You can use a sheet mask infused with the goodness of vitamin C and lemon that contains a bottle worth of serum in just a single sheet mask.
6. Provides protection against sun damage
UV radiation from the sun can cause significant harm to your skin, including premature ageing, fine lines, wrinkles, and sunburn. By combating free radicals and minimising inflammation, vitamin C can offer some defence against the harmful impact of UV radiation. While vitamin C cannot replace your sunscreen, including it in your morning skincare routine can provide additional protection against sun damage. We suggest you to use the Bright Complete Vitamin C Serum Cream with SPF 40/PA +++ which is a lightweight formula that protects your skin from sun damage such as skin tanning, dark spots and sunburn.
