4 Must Try Vitamin C Products: How to Get "Milky Skin" with Vitamin C

Being one of my favourite skincare ingredient this year, the results of Vitamin C is quite visually persuasive, that I could see the improvement of my skin day to day. However if you are a skincare newbie or have never included Vitamin C in your skincare routine, it could be pretty tricky, so this article is here to guide you though some of the most commonly asked questions about Vitamin C.

What are the benefits of Vitamin C for skin?

Scientifically proven and Loved by many skincare enthusiasts, Vitamin C is one of the most powerful ingredients for your skin:

    • Make Collagen & plump skin
    • Reduce appearance of dark spots
    • Even skin tone & brighten up complexion 
    • Diminish appearance of fine lines & wrinkles 
    • Heal wound

a. Can acne-prone skin use Vitamin C?

Quite a lot of customers come up to me and ask if they could use Vitamin C on their skin if they have acnes because many people think that it could be irritative. Well, to many people's surprise, Vitamin C is a highly-effective product in the treatment of acne: 

    • Reduce inflammation caused by acne: Vitamin C's natural anti-inflammatory helps reduce the redness and swelling.
    • Heal wounds: Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, therefore speeds up the healing process of wounds caused by acnes. 
    • Reduce appearance of acne scars & hyperpigmentation: The aftermaths of acnes is probably more haunting than acne itself. The appearance of acne scars and hyperpigmentation can be reduced by vitamin C, regaining a healthy skin complexion. 

b. Does Vitamin C lighten skin?

Honestly who doesn't want that milky, flawless skin? Vitamin C is becoming increasingly popular in Korean recently with more and more skincare brands launching Vitamin C products because it effectively lighten skin tone by:

    • Inhibiting production of Melanin: Vitamin C lightens skin by inhibiting the amount of melanin your pigment skin cells generate. When applied topically, vitamin C interacts with tyrosinase, the main enzyme responsible for the conversion of the amino acid tyrosine into melanin, thereby reducing pigmentation. 

c. Does Vitamin C prevent Aging?

Vitamin C is probably most well-known for its whitening effect, however it is also great in anti-aging by:

    • Promoting the production of collagen: believe it or not, collagen synthesis cannot happen without Vitamin C! Applying a Vitamin C serum may boost collagen production, making the skin firmer and more elastic!
    • Protects skin from UV: UV is one of the biggest cause of skin damage and aging. Antioxidant like Vitamin C prevent skin damage from the UV by neutralising free radicals from the sun.
