In the world of beauty products, it's no secret that vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid are among the most potent and beneficial ingredients in modern skincare.
On their own, they are skincare powerhouses, but what happens when you put Hyaluronic Acid and vitamin C together?
They are a force to be reckoned with.
The Beauty Benefits Of Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is incredible at intensely hydrating skin, holding up to 1,000 times in weight in moisture at the skin’s surface. This helps to recapture the plump skin and glowing complexion of our 20s.
When we're younger, our skin typically glows because it’s abundant with naturally produced Hyaluronic Acid. As we age, this production slows down and skin starts to lose its moisture.
That’s why skincare products rich in Hyaluronic Acid are so good for recapturing a youthful glow. They help your skin to stay moisturised throughout the day and appear plumper and more even in tone.
There is a wealth of cosmetic and clinical research around the benefits of Hyaluronic Acid, and a serum harnesses the power of this potent ingredient in a way that makes it easy for you to include it in your skincare routine.
It's why a Hyaluronic Acid serum has become the secret weapon of choice for so many beauty experts in recent years.
What Does Vitamin C Do For Your Skin?
Similarly, vitamin C - also known as ascorbic acid - is a miracle worker when it comes to revitalising your complexion.
Thanks to their potent antioxidant properties, vitamin C serums help protect your skin against environmental stressors such as UV rays and pollution that damage healthy skin cells and rob your skin of its moisture and lustre.
What makes vitamin C so powerful is that while it’s defending, it’s also dissolving dead skin cells and stimulating cell turnover to bring new, healthy skin cells to the surface for a brighter, tighter more youthful complexion.
The result? Visible improvements in skin tone and skin firmness that lead to a more youthful appearance and a natural glow.
Whether you increase your vitamin C intake via a supplement or dietary changes, or you opt for a topical vitamin C serum to uplevel your skincare routine, you'll soon be enjoying the beauty benefits of this mighty little vitamin.
So, if you're looking to boost your skin health and overall wellness, vitamin C is a powerful ally. And if increased collagen production and reduced wrinkles are on your beauty wishlist, you'll be glad to know vitamin C can help with that too. It can even help to regulate your skin's melanin production which can help with discolouration and hyperpigmentation.
Can You Have Too Much Vitamin C?
A common concern with vitamin C is whether too much can be harmful. The good news is that the doses used in beauty products are unlikely to cause any negative side-effects, as it would take a considerable amount of vitamin C to cause any kind of health problem.
Another reassuring factor is that vitamin C, is water-soluble which means that any excess amounts are excreted through the body's natural functions.
Hyaluronic Acid And Vitamin C Serum: A Power Combo
When Hyaluronic Acid and vitamin C work together, it’s a double strength age-defying combo.
Antioxidant protection, accelerated skin cell turnover, intense hydration and skin brightening benefits all combine to give the bouncy luminosity of younger-looking skin.
Both vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid are effective at targeting your under-eye area where skin is thinner and more delicate. Lines, dark circles and loss of firmness is much more visible in this area. Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid serums boost hydration and firmness, and lighten visible darkness, to give a smoother, brighter appearance under the eyes.
