Benefits of Vitamin C and how it helps your Skin Glow | KAYA - Blog
As if we didn’t already feel like all of the world’s problems come and rest on our shoulders, there’s a whole bunch of other worries thrown our way — yes, we’re looking at you, skin concerns.
It can all feel like too much, trying to juggle between life and self-care.
However, a solution is always in near sight. You would probably deal with your life problems by talking to your best friend who acts as your unofficial, self-appointed therapist, or you would make the choice to see a professional therapist for guidance and to improve your overall wellbeing.
Similarly for your skin, there is one saviour of an ingredient that helps you through a lot of your skincare worries — Vitamin C, the therapist for your skin. It understands everything your skin goes through on a daily basis and much like therapy (with your friend or a professional), it is well-versed with every nitty-gritty of your life (in this case, skin), empathises with it, and knows how to uplift you instantly!
From sun exposure to wrinkles and fine lines, let’s go on to see why Vitamin C serum is used and some of the areas of expertise our skincare therapist specialises in.
Sun Exposure and Ageing
We all have busy lives to lead and this sometimes can inevitably mean increased and consistent exposure to the sun. However, when skin is exposed to the sun for too long, it can cause visible photo damage owing to ultraviolet or UV rays. These rays can result in what is known as “oxidative stress” that occurs within your skin, and it attacks healthy skin cells to modify their structure. As a result, your skin ages faster to develop fine lines and wrinkles.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that fights oxidative stress and therefore, adding any Vitamin C serum for face to your daily skincare routine can significantly help protect against UV damage.
Sun Exposure and Pigmentation
Not only do UV rays contribute to ageing but they also interfere with melanin production that induces skin pigmentation. Pigmentation is when your skin starts to form dark spots and this commonly occurs with repeated exposure to the sun.
Vitamin C for pigmentation has proven to be effective in combating the process by inhibiting the tyrosinase enzyme that is responsible for producing melanin.
To prevent the effects of UV damage such as wrinkles and pigmentation, you can try the Kaya Antox Vit C Formula face serum.
Inflammation and Acne
The cause of acne is attributed to blocked pores that when left untreated, can result in inflammation, swelling, and redness. It’s a rather unpleasant experience, as we all have encountered at some point in time in our lives.
Vitamin C serum benefits also include anti-inflammatory properties that reduce redness and soothes the skin, which in turn means it also improves the appearance of acne scars — you know the thing that relentlessly decides to overstay its welcome.
Collagen Boost and Hydration
If you ever wished for that one secret magic potion for your skin, in this case let’s call it a “skin glowing vitamin”, it’s this. Another reason why Vitamin C serum is used is to boost collagen production which is one of the main building blocks of the body. It promotes strengthening and hydration of the skin — both of which are important to give you younger, finer looking skin.
However, just like therapy in real life, skincare too takes work and consistency until you eventually see results. It is also important to consult your dermatologist before the use of topical treatments to ensure the best results and avoid any potential side effects.
