We all want to maintain a youthful looking complexion, but unless we are blessed with good genes we may need a helping hand. Many models swear by Vitamin C, but what about us mere mortals? It turns out Vitamin C serum is ideal for all ages and skin types. But, aside from anti-aging, what other benefits does it have?

Helps Skin Look Younger

We thought we would start with the benefit that everyone seems to know. Vitamin C can help your skin look youger for longer by stimulating collagen production (mentioned later), evening out your skin tone and brightening your complexion.

Stimulates Collagen Production

Vitamin C is an antioxidant which boosts collagen production. This in turn fills in fine lines and wrinkles giving your younger looking skin without enduring painful cosmetic procedures.

Protects From Sun Damage

As Vitamin C is an antioxidant it helps to strengthen your skin, protecting it from sun damage. We aren’t saying skip out on the sunscreen, but that it should be used in conjunction with with a sun cream to work wonders to your skin.

Reduces Under-Eye Circles

I think we can all say we have suffered with under eye circle at one point or another. Whether that is from working too hard or having one too many late nights out on the town. Vitamin C can help out those who are fed up of having to conceal dark circles as it evens out your skin tone and reduces the appearance of those pesky under eye circles.

Improves Hydration

You should also make sure you reach for the Vitamin C if you suffer from dry skin. Vitamin C based products work wonders where other creams and moisturisers may have let you down. The high concentration of vitamins helps to improve moisture levels and your skin’s hydration.
