Over the past few years, many new Vitamin C Serums hit the market and the momentum just keeps getting bigger. In this post I will go through some of the benefits Vitamin C serum has for your skin and explain why you should add it to your daily skin care regimen.
Vitamin C serum originally became popular for its Anti-Oxidant properties. Due to the ever-growing amounts of pollution and toxins that are in the air, our skin has been getting an awfully large dose of free radicals. Anti-Oxidants are needed to neutralize the free radicals. A balance between free radicals and Anti-Oxidants is necessary for proper functions of living organisms and their parts.
What are free radicals? Free radicals are a molecule that contains an unpaired electron in its atomic structure. They are constantly looking for a pair and when your skin absorbs them they attach to your healthy tissue and take an electron from it. Thereby causing damage to your skin tissue.
Vitamin C has a very high concentration of anti-oxidants. Anti-oxidant are able to pair with a free radical giving it what it needs so that it won't damage your skin tissue. They will connect with the unpaired electrons and provide your skin with all the molecules it needs to stay smooth and nice.
In the recent years, manufacturers have been adding other benefits to their serums as well. Most commonly is Hyaluronic acid. Which is a molecule that slowly depletes as you age so having that in your serum will also help with anti-aging.
You should be using a Vitamin C serum in your daily skincare regimen, no matter your age. As even younger skin will still need the protection to prevent any damage from occurring and the older skin need to be repaired.
