It`s not a newness that vitamin C has extraordinary properties in our body when we eat it. This is why the cosmetics industry every day more transfers the vitamin benefits to their products, so as to taking advantage of its properties topically as well in our skin.
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is an essential nutrient since our body is not able to synthesize it.
We must take into account that the human being does not produce vitamin C and that is why we must seek to obtain it externally. We tend to associate vitamin C with oranges, without knowing that there are other foods with much more percentage of vitamin C. For example, guava is the richest food in vitamin C, providing 280mg of vitamin C per 100g, while the orange only contributes 50mg, also the broccoli, spinach, strawberries, kiwis, red peppers, among other foods contribute with enough quantity of this vitamin to our organism.
Vitamin C has a very important role for the skin, therefore, in addition to ingesting it, we must apply it to our skin.
Also, vitamin C is an amazing ally against premature aging, it also gives us luminosity, firmness, elasticity and unifies our skin tone.
Remember that vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant since it prevents damages to the DNA of cells that are exposed to sunlight radiation and free radicals. Likewise, it increases the collagen synthesis, so it helps to prevent wrinkles, increasing the luminosity and unifying the skin tone. Finally, it´s perfect for correcting and avoiding spots in our skin because of its ability to transmit melanin and collaborating with the pigment distribution.
Currently, there are several skin care products that contain vitamin C for topical use. Unlike what we believe, vitamin C does not leave marks or produce hyperpigmentation in our skin. On the contrary, when the product has concentrations of 5-15% it has a depigmenting effect, perfect to improve the tone of the skin and bring more light to our face.
However, the reason why it is not recommended to apply during the day is that vitamin C is unstable in the face of solar radiation and, therefore, decreases its antioxidant properties. .
