Protect Your Skin this Summer

January 12th, 2021

Your body needs a variety of nutrients to look and function its best, but Vitamin C is a particularly important one. It offers much more than the immune-boosting properties that we all know about.

The antioxidant properties of Vitamin C and its role in collagen synthesis make Vitamin C a vital molecule for skin health.

Protect Your Skin this Summer

Here’s how Vitamin C helps protect your skin:


When skin is exposed to UV rays, damaging molecules called free radicals attack cells and collagen, your skin’s support structure. Vitamin C is an antioxidant, which your body uses to fight off harmful free radicals. Vitamin C acts as a shield against UV rays and offers maximum protection against sun damage including discolorations, pigmentations, redness, and burns.


The accumulation of oxidative damage to proteins is a distinguishing feature of both photodamage and intrinsic aging; such oxidative damage can lead to changes in skin structure. The role of Vitamin C in the hydroxylation of collagen molecules is well characterized.

Firmer skin

Vitamin C triggers collagen production by turning on fibroblasts, which helps improve the appearance of fine lines. Along with minimizing the appearance of fine lines, Vitamin C also helps the surface of your skin appear smoother and firmer by activating cells called fibroblasts that make new collagen.

Improves Hydration & Moisture

If you suffer from dry skin, Vitamin C will help. With topical Vitamin C products, you can enjoy the high concentration of vitamins that your body really needs to improve moisture content and overall hydration.

Wound Healing

High levels of Vitamin C can help speed up the body’s natural healing processes. This makes it ideal for use on the face and other areas of skin, as it can help to heal small cuts, acne scars, and other blemishes more quickly and effectively.

Vitamin C is an essential part of healthy skin. Vitamin C contributes to photoprotection, decreases photodamage, and is needed for adequate wound healing. If you want brighter, tighter, and, overall better-looking skin, make sure to add Vitamin C to your diet this summer.
