What makes this treatment so revolutionary? We’re taking a closer look at vitamin C and why it’s one ingredient that everyone should have in their skincare routine.


What’s vitamin C in skincare?

Vitamin C is largely considered the best anti-aging ingredient while also helping you maintain an even skin texture and tone, along with a glowing complexion. With beauty trends shifting from makeup to skincare, vitamin C is becoming more popular than ever.

Although you can incorporate vitamin C into your diet, there’s no guaranteed way to get it straight into your skin. That’s where skincare treatments like the Germaine de Capuccini come in.

As a natural ingredient, vitamin C is safe for virtually every skin type. Unless your skin is hypersensitive, you shouldn’t experience any issues with using vitamin C. It’s also safe to use alongside other popular active ingredients like alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), retinols, and your daily SPF.


The benefits of using vitamin C for your skin

The best skin care routines are quick, simple, and easy to understand. You want to focus on a small number of active ingredients that will deliver you proven results and transform your skin.

Meet vitamin C. It’s the natural ingredient that is here to change your life – and your skincare routine as well. We’re rounding up the most popular benefits of using vitamin C in your skincare routine to show you the power of this natural multi-tasking ingredient.


  1. It deeply hydrates your skin

Vitamin C is a multi-tasking natural ingredient that has something to offer everyone. The magnesium ascorbyl phosphate within vitamin C deeply hydrates your skin, promoting moisture retention and leaving your skin plump and firm. Keeping your skin hydrated is the first line of defense against free radical damage and premature aging. When your skin is hydrated, it’s less likely to start sagging and showing the tell-tale signs of aging.


  1. Fades pigmentation

The dewy glow created by vitamin C comes from its ability to fade pigmentation on the skin, along with smoothing its surface. Vitamin C works to tackle hyperpigmentation of all kinds, including melasma and age spots. Vitamin C has been proven to slow down your melanin production, helping to fade dark spots and create a more even complexion.


  1. Creates a youthful, dewy glow

If you want to create or maintain a youthful glow, vitamin C is non-negotiable. Vitamin C is used as a treatment for inflammatory skin conditions as it diminishes the appearance of redness while soothing the skin. The power of vitamin C as an anti-aging ingredient comes from its ability to boost your collagen production.

As we get older, our collagen production slows down, causing our skin to show signs of aging. Vitamin C works directly at the source by kickstarting your collagen production over overtime. Using vitamin C will help tighten your skin’s elastin to prevent skin sagging and leave your skin firmer and softer to the touch.


  1. Tackles under-eye circles

Vitamin C is also the secret to making it look like you got a full eight hours of sleep. It can be used topically to reduce the appearance of under-eye circles by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles by hydrating the skin.


  1. Protects against sun damage and UV radiation

Sun damage and UV radiation are something that we should all be thinking about. Vitamin C is a natural antioxidant that fights against free radical damage, including sun damage. It’s the perfect combination alongside your daily SPF. Speaking of sun damage, vitamin C accelerates cellular turnover, meaning that this multi-tasking ingredient can be used to soothe sunburns. It can also work to boost wound healing, including scarring, infection, and inflammation.

If you feel like your skincare routine needs to be turbocharged into gear or that your skin needs a pick-me-up, try using vitamin C. This powerful natural antioxidant ingredient will protect you against premature aging and create the healthy, dewy glow that is at the forefront of beauty trends.
