Why Vitamin C is Essential for Your Skin

“Vitamin C can help reduce the risk of cancer” – this has already proven to be false by scientific studies in 2013. However, Vitamin C is still essential for your body and your skin, because it offers many irreplaceable (and essential) health benefits.



Being the most popular single vitamin, vitamin C brings an abundance of health benefits ranging from treat cold to reduce stress. But long before modern scientists discover these benefits, ancient civilizations has learned the skin-rejuvenating power of vitamin C when applied topically. 

In ancient Tibet, women who wanted to fight the outward signs of premature aging would rub sea buckthorn on their face and hands. The golden-orange berries of the sea buckthorn plant yield a deep-colored oil that is a major source of vitamin C.


Collagen Booster

Collagen is a structural support protein that is essential for firm, youthful skin. Our skin contains a natural amount of collagen, but this amount will decrease as we are aging. If you are a smoker or receive an excessive amount of sunshine, your collagen level is likely to be lower than average. Low collagen level leads to brittle skin and eventually in wrinkling and sagging

As the synthesis of new collagen slows down, topical vitamin C is one of the most effective ways to boost collagen synthesis and slow its degradation. When topically applied, vitamin C improves collagen synthesis in the skin, and the result will slow down aging effects.

Apply Topically

While oral intakes of vitamin C is very common and easy, because vitamin C get easily dissolved in water and discharged outside our body through urine, only a small amount will reach your skin. Topical antioxidants produce much higher concentrations in the skin than nutritional supplements. In fact, applying vitamin C to the skin is 20 times more effective than oral ingestion. Rejuvenating your skin by constantly replenishing vitamin C can help maintain healthy, younger-looking skin.


Skin-damage Protection

Not only does the powerful anti-aging vitamin C rebuild collagen, but its potent antioxidant power also protects skin from other daily damages such as free radicals. Although our skin naturally has cellular enzymes and other metabolic processes to deal with this kind of damage (antioxidants being one of them), aging and environmental stresses like sunlight, smoking, and pollution, can eventually overpower these protective controls. Regular application of vitamin C can help make up for the loss of enzymes and improve skin protection.
