4 Vitamin C Benefits + Why Our Skin Needs It - Silex Skincare
Shaping your skincare routine to your skin’s needs is not the easiest task. If you are open to experimenting with  new products or you are trying to alleviate a skin condition, Vitamin C can often be the perfect solution. In fact, adding this ingredient into your routine is beneficial in more ways than one. So, keep reading to C why!

Boosts Collagen Production

Collagen helps maintain your skin’s elasticity, hydration, and strength. As you age, your collagen production decreases. Applying Vitamin C promotes the production of collagen and, in turn, prevents wrinkles and saggy skin. Vitamin C also acts proactively and prevents damage to your current collagen supply. This assists your skin’s health and allows it to maintain a youthful glow. (Silex Secret: Vitamin C + Tamarind Seed (plant based hyaluronic acid) are the dynamic duo in our C Level to keep your collagen production levels healthy.)

Restores from Sun Exposure 

To clear any confusion from what you’ve read on the ‘net’, Vitamin C does not protect your skin from sun exposure. Vitamin C does, however, combat free radicals through antioxidants. In short, antioxidants fight free radical damage by counteracting the production of them in your body. Bottom line? Do not solely use Vitamin C as a substitute for SPF but, rather, as a neutralizer from the effects of UVA and UVB rays and you’ll be golden✨

Slows Aging & Gets Rid of Fine Lines

Aging is a beautiful thing… when it’s at your own, natural pace. If allowing environmental aggressors to progress your aging process isn’t in your plans, you’re in the right place! Vitamin C assists in the skin regeneration process and works especially well on mature skin. However, Vitamin C is one of the only ingredients that works well on all skin types and ages. (We’re here for it!)

Evens Skin Tone + Prevents Acne 

Hyperpigmentation is a condition that many of us have experienced.. Although it is harmless, it isn’t necessarily enjoyable. Simply, hyperpigmentation happens when your body over-produces melanin. This gives your skin color and causes your body to form darker spots on your skin. Acne, on the other hand, presents in several forms and can stem from many factors. These factors include, but are not limited to, including poor diets, genetics, and hormones. 

If you're one of the millions of people who suffer from acne or hyperpigmentation, you know it can be frustrating. Vitamin C works as a lightening and reducing agent. This means Vitamin C reduces the after effects of acne and brightens the skin. In regards to hyperpigmentation, Vitamin C reduces the production of the tyrosine enzyme. This enzyme is the culprit of the overproduction of melanin and creation of dark spots. With these capabilities, Vitamin C has defined itself as an ingredient of many wonders. 

You’ve probably found yourself splurging on any skincare to experience these benefits, and trust us, we’ve been around this rodeo a time or two! Vitamin C is the holy grail in skincare. Hence, why Vitamin C is one of the main ingredients in our C Level

Give your skin at least a month to see results, especially in regards to acne and hyperpigmentation. Last but not least, grab your C Level Vitamin C Antioxidant Serum! The key to youthful, radiant, and smooth skin? Vitamin C, consistency & patience.
