Vitamin C in skincare: What you need to know

Dr. Mara Padilla Evangelista-Huber, FPDS, FDSP, MClinRes

Why use vitamin C in your skincare routine?

Vitamin C is one of the most popular active ingredients in the skin, and for good reason! It has multiple beneficial effects. 

First, it is a powerful anti-oxidant that protects us from free radicals – substances that can damage our skin cells and cause premature skin aging.

It also has photoprotective effects, shielding us against the damaging effects of the sun’s rays on skin, which include wrinkles, dark spots, rough skin texture and many more.

Vitamin C can also increase collagen production, keeping skin plump and improving skin elasticity and texture.

Lastly, it inhibits tyrosinase, a key enzyme in the production of melanin (the pigment responsible for our skin color), which makes it helpful for fading hyperpigmentation and brightening overall skin tone.
