Vitamin C Day
National Vitamin-C Day April 4th
As National Vitamin-C day is April 4th, we thought it would be a fantastic idea to delve into detail about the benefits that Vitamin C can do for us as well as take a look at a selection of our superstar Vitamin-C-infused products that we have here at UK Beauty Club.
Let’s first start off by finding out more about the topical benefits of Vitamin C and why it is so important for our skin!
Topical vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that has numerous benefits for our skin. Here are some of the key benefits:
Brightening Effect: Vitamin C helps to lighten hyperpigmentation and brighten the skin tone, giving us a more even and radiant complexion. The BioLumin-C Brightening Trio by Dermalogica is a powerhouse trio of Vitamin-C infused skincare products (BioLumin-C Serum 30ml, BioLumin-C Eye Serum 6ml & BioLumin-C Gel Moisturizer 15ml) that firms, hydrates and brightens tired skin. If you prefer the combine the beauty of brighter skin with a little dash of fake tan, the St. Tropez Purity Vitamin Serum is a perfect alternative to getting that vitamin-c-infused envious glow.
Collagen Production: Vitamin C stimulates collagen production, which helps to improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. For a serum that is brilliant for fighting hyperpigmentation, tackling dullness, and supporting the skin’s natural collagen, Elizabeth Arden Vitamin C Ceramide Capsules Serum brings together the benefits of Vitamin C and ceramides - or, for a masque that helps to repair and restore damaged skin, the Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque by Dermalogica is perfect for moisturising, soothing and calming complexions as well as increasing elasticity and aiding in collagen synthesis to help restore suppleness.
Protection Against Sun Damage: Vitamin C has been shown to help protect the skin against the harmful effects of UV rays, which can cause premature aging, sun spots, and other skin damage. The Clearing Defense SPF30 by Dermalogica is a vitamin-c infused, shine-reducing SPF moisturiser that helps protect breakout-prone skin from environmental stress. For a nourishing night cream, the Tulasāra Firming Sleeping Masque by Aveda utilises A peptide + Vitamin C to help skin boost its own natural production of collagen for visibly lifted, firmer feeling skin while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Hydration: Vitamin C can also help to hydrate the skin by binding to water molecules, resulting in a more plump and youthful-looking complexion. For an all-in-one spa manicure kit that’s infused with Vitamin C, the Voesh Mani In A Box Vitamin Recharge is bursting with freshness and delivers happy, hydrated hands. If its hair hydration you need – then Redken Blondage High Bright Shampoo is a new blonde haircare system powered by Vitamin C and Redken's Brightening Care Complex that washes away buildup and impurities in hair whilst brightening and hydrating dulled, darkened or mattified blonde hair caused by dulling agents and pollution.
Reduced Inflammation: Vitamin C has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to calm irritated skin and reduce redness and swelling. If you’re looking for a velvety moisturiser that helps to fortify sensitised skin with a damaged barrier, the Ultracalming Barrier Repair by Dermalogica is delicately formulated with Evening Primrose Oil, Borage Seed Oil, Vitamins C & E, Oat and Botanical Actives to help minimise skin discomfort, restore a healthy barrier function and combat free radicals. For a soothing toner, the Antioxidant Hydramist by Dermalogica is perfect for hydrating and firming skin whilst targeting fine lines and wrinkles.
Overall, topical vitamin C is a versatile and effective ingredient that can help to improve the health and appearance of our skin in several ways.
