Vitamin C is amazing for our health – it boosts our immune systems and keeps us from getting sick. But, the health benefits of this antioxidant aren’t just for our insides – our skin needs vitamin C to be healthy and beautiful too! Here’s why I’m obsessed with vitamin C and why you should be too:
Did you know that we naturally all have vitamin C in our skin? Pretty fabulous, right? Unfortunately, it’s not enough. UV rays, air pollution, dirt, and bacteria all cut down on this antioxidant, so it’s important to replenish with a creme or serum, giving you full benefits of the amazing ingredient.
Here’s why you should incorporate vitamin C into your skin care routine:
- Reduces the appearance of brown spots, red spots, and other types of sun damage
- Helps boost healthy collagen production (ummm, hello 19-year-old skin!)
- Relieves inflammation and irritation
- Increases the effectiveness of your sunscreen and boosts your skin’s defense against UV exposure (summer is right around the corner, people!)
Another HUGE factor to think about with the ingredient vitamin C is packaging – this antioxidant is very sensitive to air and light, so stay away from containers that are translucent and jars with removable lids. Enza Essentials Vitamin C Creme is literally the perfect packaging – no air and light can get in there!
Start using vitamin C in your skin care regimen and you’ll “c” the difference in no time! -xo Kayla
