Vitamin C: A “Legendary” Skin Care Ingredient
How Does It Work?Vitamin C is an antioxidant, which means it fights harmful free radicals that come at us from external sources, such as pollution, or from internal processes like our own metabolism. Free radicals are unstable atoms, or toxins, which can damage cells leading to aging and illness.
While Vitamin C is often recommended by doctors as part of a healthy diet due to its benefits on the body as a whole, topical Vitamin C is recommended by dermatologists for its ability to slow early skin aging, prevent sun damage, and help fight wrinkles, dark spots, and acne. Vitamin C works by aiding in our skin’s regeneration process, thereby helping our bodies repair damaged skin.
Vitamin C has also been found to brighten skin tone, reduce undereye circles, help heal wounds faster, and to encourage production of collagen. It also helps boost your skin’s natural sun protection factor. No wonder it’s been called a legendary ingredient by some.
Who Should Use Vitamin C?
Vitamin C has generally been found safe for use on all adult skin types. While some Vitamin C products can be irritating, every Dubois Beauty product is tested on sensitive skin to be safe and not cause a reaction. If concerned, you can try a small amount on the back of your hand to test if your skin reacts.
