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. Natural Radiant Life offers a 20% L-ascorbic acid formula called Radiant C. To prevent oxidation of the product, which renders it less effective, ours is packaged in an airless pump that protects the contents.

There are numerous reasons why Vitamin C is good for your skin, 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 skin care routine because of the many benefits. For those with extremely sensitive or dry skin, who may experience stinging or a warming sensation when Vitamin C is applied, dilute the Vitamin C with a moisturizer for twice a day application.

2. It is skin brightening. Vitamin C leaves your skin with a brighter, more radiant appearance.

3. It helps to reduce redness and to even skin tone by addressing a variety of inflammatory skin conditions.

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.

5. It is an antioxidant - This means 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. Needless to say, you want to add an antioxidant to your daily regimen.

For maximum efficacy when adding Vitamin C to your regimen, use it in the morning and be sure to use an SPF. 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 the Natural Radiant Life Radiant C Serum:
