Vitamin C for the Warm, Summer Months
Give your skin a juicy glow while enjoying the sun.
Summer is fast approaching, which means you’re ready to soak up that much needed “vitamin sea”. However, that could also end up giving you dry spells, unwanted dark spots, and even hyperpigmentation on your skin. Sunscreen is one of your best weapons against harsh UV light exposure, but don’t forget to add some Vitamin C to your skin care routine, too.
Skin care enthusiasts recommend Vitamin C treatments for brighter, smoother skin. Vitamin C is acidic, so when it’s applied onto the skin, it speeds up cell regeneration and accelerates production of collagen and elastin.
Topical application of a gentle essential Vitamin C face toner, like Tuula Skin 139 Saffron Tangerine Vitamin C Face Toner prior to your favorite sunscreen helps in balancing the skin tone, preventing hyperpigmentation, and reducing signs of aging.
Vitamin C evens skin tone.
Dark spots and patches start to show on your skin due to the damaging effects of sun exposure, and because Vitamin C is a natural antioxidant, it helps fade these spots and prevent melanin production significantly.
Vitamin C slows down aging.
Vitamin C also neutralizes free radicals and reduces the damage of daily aggressors like UV exposure and air pollution. The skin is treated to a collagen boost when Vitamin C is topically applied. Collagen maintains skin elasticity and firmness, and it smooths out fine lines and wrinkles. This key ingredient also allows the skin to retain moisture for staying hydrated for longer.
So this summer (and if you live in the tropics), consider adding Vitamin C to your skincare must-haves!
