Vitamin C is Magic in Skincare!

Your Skin Doesn’t Want Scurvy! Why Vitamin C is a Powerhouse from the Outside In

At Perpetuity Skin + Spa on the Boise Bench, we deliver a lot of skincare! We do facials, and we provide our clients with curated skincare to maximize benefits, without breaking the bank.

What is Vitamin C and Why is it Important for Skin?

Vitamin C, a water-soluble vitamin found in fruits and vegetables, is the most abundant antioxidant in human skin. It plays a vital role in maintaining skin health and appearance, but our bodies can’t produce it – we need to get it through diet or topical application.

L-Ascorbic Acid: The Powerful Form for Skincare

L-ascorbic acid, the most common form of vitamin C used in skincare, offers potent antioxidant benefits. However, it struggles to penetrate the skin on its own. Look for formulations that combine it with other ingredients to enhance absorption, often at concentrations above 8% for best results.

Benefits of Topical Vitamin C for Glowing Skin

Vitamin C offers a range of benefits for a radiant complexion:

  • Anti-Aging Powerhouse: Vitamin C fights free radical damage caused by UV rays and pollution, which can lead to wrinkles and loss of elasticity. Studies suggest it helps prevent fine lines and wrinkles, and some formulations may even diminish existing ones. The Body Deli’s Vital C Serum is a great option with clinically proven results.
  • Even Skin Tone: Topical vitamin C helps reduce hyperpigmentation, age spots, and sun spots for a more even skin tone. Face Reality’s Brighten-C Mask goes miles in addressing all these concerns, and more. Brighten-C Mask is packed with specialty ingredients like vitamin C to boost radiance, help improve the appearance of discoloration, and offer antioxidant support. And, it’s great for all skin types.
  • Boosts Radiance: As we age, skin loses its natural glow. Vitamin C helps maintain hydration and reduce dullness, promoting a brighter, more radiant appearance. Try The Body Deli’s Hydramist, which delivers Vitamin C, along with a dewy glow to your skin.
  • Addresses Eye Area Concerns: The delicate skin around the eyes benefits from vitamin C’s gentleness. A vitamin C eye cream can help reduce the appearance of dark circles, wrinkles, and puffiness.
