Benefits of vitamin c for the face

People who suffer from skin blemishes or uneven skin tone can greatly benefit from the use of a vitamin C serum. Similarly, if you suffer from acne scars, this remedy can help to clear them up.

This is because vitamin C is high in antioxidants. As you may know, antioxidants helps regenerate damaged skin cells while keeping the effects of free radicals at bay.

It is important to mention, that vitamin C also has other elements that offer healing properties for the skin. For example, it is potent in acids which helps promote collagen and elastin productions in the skin. As you may know, collagen and elastin are the ones that help keep our skin firm and avoid the signs of aging.

As if that were not enough, and this is the part that interests us about this article, it has properties that inhibit melanin production, which causes spots on the skin.

Things to keep in mind before applying vitamin C serum

  1. Make the serum in small batches to prevent the product from expiring over time.
  2. Always save the product in a dark glass dropper and store it in a dark place, such as the medicine cabinet.
  3. Discard the product that turns yellow or rusty over time, just make a new one. NEVER use a product that has lost its color or has a foul smell.
  4. The first time you use this serum, apply it only in a small area on your face to see if you have any adverse reaction. Remember, like all products, all skins react differently. If you experience any adverse reaction, rinse promptly and discontinue its use.
