On their own, vitamin C and hyaluronic acid are skincare powerhouses. Together, they are a force to be reckoned with. 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 plumped-up glowing complexion of our 20’s.
When we are 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.
What Does Vitamin C Do For Your Skin?
Similarly, vitamin C is a miracle worker when it comes to revitalising your complexion. A potent antioxidant, vitamin C serums help protect your skin against environmental stressors such as UV and pollution that damage healthy skin cells and rob your skin of its moisture and lustre. What makes it so powerful is that while it’s defending, it’s also dissolving dead skin cells and stimulating skin cell turnover to bring new, healthy skin cells to the surface for a brighter, tighter more youthful complexion.
When the two 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. This power combo is especially 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.
