    Vitamin C – Why Is It Good For Your Skin?

    Vitamin C – Why Is It Good For Your Skin?

    Vitamin C, also known L-ascorbic acid, has several important functions which includes helping to protect cells and keeping them healthy. This magical ingredient has so many perks– it promotes collagen production, protects against sun damage, hydrates the skin, and can be the game changing ingredient that you have been looking for all along! Natural Radiant Life offers a 20% L-ascorbic acid formula in ourBrightening Vitamin C Radiant - C Serum. To prevent oxidation of the product, which renders it less effective, ours is packaged in an airless pump that protects the contents within, and keeps everything fresh.

    There are numerous reasons why Vitamin C is great for your skin, but here are Natural Radiant Life’s top five:

    1. It is safe for most skin types. For most people, Vitamin C is an excellent addition to their daily skincare routine because of the many benefits that it contains for a plethora of skin concerns. While a lot of active ingredients target one or two skin concerns, we love Vitamin C specifically for how plentiful and diverse its range of benefits are. For those with extremely sensitive or dry skin who may experience stinging or a warming sensation when Vitamin C is applied, we suggest that you try diluting the Vitamin C with a moisturizer for twice a day application, as it will be a lot more gentle on the skin. Another great thing about this ingredient is the fact that it is safe to use with other actives such as retinols, and SPF.
    2. It is skin brightening.Vitamin C leaves your skin with a brighter, more radiant appearance. Our skin can start to appear more and more dull and lifeless as we age, which is something that Vitamin C can rectify– when used regularly, it can give the skin the most refreshing and youthful glow!
    3. It helps to reduce redness and to even skin tone by addressing a variety of inflammatory skin conditions.As an anti-inflammatory agent, it can soothe the skin and therefore reduce puffiness. Adding Vitamin C to your morning routine will help you start your day off with glowy, youthful looking skin that feels alleviated from the inside out, while also reducing inflammation from the day before. 
    4. It helps fade hyperpigmentation and smooth fine lines. Hyperpigmentation includes sunspots, age spots and melasma. Melasma occurs when melanin is overproduced in certain areas of the skin and is common in pregnant women. Melasma can and often does happen in areas where acne has healed. Many of us deal with these pesky patches of hyperpigmentation and uneven complexion, but fortunately Vitamin C is one of the best ways to stop the production of excessive melanin in its tracks, so to speak. 
    5. It is an antioxidant, which means that Vitamin C halts or holds off environmental and sun damage to cells caused by free radicals. What are free radicals, you ask? Free radicals damage the growth, development, and survival of cells. Damage from free radicals can show up as increased fine lines, uneven skin tone, dark spots, and more. Needless to say, you definitely want to look into adding an antioxidant to your daily skincare regimen, because preventing these negative conditions is simpler and more accessible than one may think!

    For maximum efficacy when adding Vitamin C to your regimen, use it in the morning and be sure to use an SPF too. Using a sunscreen with your Vitamin C helps prevent the Vitamin C from oxidizing on the skin, thereby increasing its efficacy.

    With consistent use, Vitamin C helps users achieve a more even, smooth, and dewy complexion.  Here’s what our customers are saying about theNatural Radiant Life Radiant C Serum:
