Vitamin C

Vitamin C
Vitamin C is important for most skin care regimens on so many levels. It has been proven to help the skin from photo-damage from sun exposure when applied topically. Vitamin C is an anti-oxidant and helps fight free radicals which cause damage to the cells. Anti-oxidants protect the skin from damage caused by the effects of sun exposure as well as smoking and pollution.
Vitamin C is especially beneficial for hyper-pigmentation or sun spots. It not only brightens the skin but helps to stimulate collagen. In addition studies have shown that vitamin C helps to minimize fine lines, scars, and wrinkles.
When purchasing vitamin C look for tubes, capsules, or pumps that do not allow air in. Vitamin C is easily broken down by sunlight and air so the correct container is very important to keep it stable. We recommend Benev’s Vitamin C Gel.
Vitamin C should be applied to clean skin underneath the moisturizer.
