5 Ways Vitamin C Can Benefit Your Skin (Win!)

May 30, 2021

In a sea of skin-care claims, we’re here to clear something up: vitamin C is truly one of the most effective ingredients you can add to your daily regime. How do we know? In chatting with our friends at B.C.-based Truly Lifestyle Brand, makers of Truly Brightening Vitamin C—a holy grail of facial serums, with 100-plus positive customer reviews (example: “This vitamin C is da bomb, I love it! Have seen a notable difference in my skin. That glow girl! Recommend 1 million x’s” and “This is my third bottle of the vitamin C serum and is a staple in my routine!”)—we discovered the top five benefits of vitamin C for skin:

  • Brightens
  • Fades hyperpigmentation
  • Boosts collagen production (think anti-aging)
  • Protects against sun damage and free radicals by being rich in antioxidants
  • Boosts firmness and prevents sagging

Indeed, just a few drops of Truly Brightening Vitamin C applied, preferably, in the morning after washing your face and before your moisturizer will help to eliminate dull, lifeless skin by boosting the production of collagen and elastin and reducing hyperpigmentation and dark under-eye circles. We love that, along with a healthy amount (18%) of vitamin C, this serum contains soothing cucumber, aloe and botanical antioxidants—a custom, powerhouse blend that fights wrinkles, sagging, lost firmness and more to support the appearance of younger-looking skin. Pro tip: ensure you wear SPF after application, as vitamin C can make your skin more sensitive (plus, they’ll work together to protect against free radicals).

When it comes to skin care, it really doesn’t get any clearer than that; call us vitamin C convinced! —Vita Daily
