You may have heard that vitamin C is a key ingredient that is often included in your favourite skincare products. It is being hailed as possessing fantastic anti-ageing properties, as well as helping to maintain a complexion that is bright in appearance and smooth in texture. Dr. Shaan agrees that vitamin C can be a great addition to skincare products as it can provide many benefits for the skin, and here’s why:
Suitable for almost all skin types – it has an excellent safety record, with patients very rarely experiencing an adverse reaction;
Boosts hydration – many skincare products use a derivative of vitamin C, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, which helps your skin hold on to essential moisture;
Brightens the skin – vitamin C can reduce the appearance of pigmentation and reduce the look of dull skin;
Reduces facial redness – decreases inflammation in the skin for a more evenly toned complexion;
Fades age spots and melasma – vitamin C can help to slow down the production and build up of excess melanin, preventing the formation of darkened patches of skin;
Reduces dark circles – as well as improving hydration around the eyes to help soften lines and wrinkles, vitamin C can alleviate the redness and discoloured appearance of the skin that is synonymous with dark circles;
Increases collagen production – vitamin C can work to help naturally accelerate the production of collagen;
Improves skin laxity – as declining collagen levels also contributes to loose and sagging skin, a boost in collagen can help to tighten and lift the skin;
Protects the skin from sun damage – vitamin C contains an abundance of antioxidants, gifting healthy skin cells with a protective barrier. In addition, vitamin C can enhance cellular turnover, which benefits red and irritated skin by replacing damaged skin cells with healthy new ones;
Enhances skin healing – improved cellular regeneration can also help to accelerate repair and rejuvenation, which positively impacts infection, inflammation and minor scarring.
Dr. Shaan recommends the use of Obagi skincare products, at Aatma Aesthetics.
