We know all our RAWWlings love a glowing complexion! Getting healthy, bright and firm skin is made easy with Vitamin C!

Vitamin C is super powerful and can help to prevent free radical damage, reduce fine lines and wrinkles while brightening and nourishing the skin. Get the lowdown on all the super benefits of using skincare containing Vitamin C (from natural Superfoods, of course). 

Vitamin C For Anti-Ageing:

Sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles are all part of ageing... we don’t love it but it’s true. This is caused by a few factors: UV, free radicals and a natural reduction in the things our skin loves. Although Vitamin C is naturally present in your skin, UV light exposure reduces it’s availability, which is why we love skincare containing Vitamin C. As an antioxidant, Vitamin C neutralises free radical attacks! It is then converted back into Vitamin C again when it comes into contact with other naturally occurring enzymes in the body. This is super handy to keep your skin looking as youthful and healthy as can be!

To keep your skin firm and youthful in appearance, collagen acts like a supportive spring, helping the surface to bounce back and preventing your skin forming lines and wrinkles. Helping this process, Vitamin C stimulates the increase in production of collagen - YAY!

Vitamin C For Skin Brightening:

When it comes to pigmentation dark spots tend to hang around, often giving you an uneven complexion. Vitamin C is effective at brightening the skin by evening out pigmentation, reducing dark undereye circles and inhibiting the biochemical reactions that cause more pigmentation. Vitamin C blocks a specific enzyme, tyrosinase, that is responsible for causing these dark patches and spots on your skin.

Vitamin C For Skin Protection And Moisture:

The hard work of Vitamin C does not finish at defending against free radicals and producing more collagen. It helps to create a natural protective layer on the skin and protects skin nourishing Vitamins. The protective layer is super important, it blocks pollutants and microbes from entering the skin while reduces skin water loss, keeping the skin super hydrated. An added nourishing bonus of Vitamin C is that it protects Vitamin E supplies helping to moisturise and heal your skin.
