What does vitamin C do for my skin?

Vitamin C: isn't that in fruit?

Oranges, strawberries and kiwis are packed with vitamin C, but did you know that this vitamin is also super effective in your skincare routine? In addition to a healthy diet, you can spoil your skin even more with this vitamin. We are happy to tell you more about the pearl of skin care!

Skin aging

Vitamin C in skincare ensures that your skin produces collagen faster. Collagen is a protein that is naturally present in your skin and works fantastic against skin aging. Unfortunately, there is no cream or serum that completely disappears wrinkles, but the production of collagen makes your skin more elastic, making your skin look fuller. This reduces fine lines, such as around your eyes, and makes your skin glow. Your skin will look fresh again!


Pimples, almost everyone has to deal with them from time to time. Did you know that no less than 90% of the population has (had) problems with it? When we think of acne, we often think of puberty, but adults can also suffer from it. And let vitamin C now be effective against impurities! Not only does vitamin C tackle pimples, it also works very well against rosacea by strengthening your skin barrier.

Pigment spots

Vitamin C also has an equalizing effect, making your complexion like new again. Pigment spots, for example caused by sunlight, visibly diminish after using skin care with vitamin c. This antioxidant not only reduces the already existing damage, but also protects your skin from new harmful particles. This panacea forms a protective layer on your skin, so that, for example, harmful UV rays cause less or no damage to your skin.

How do you use vitamin C for skin care?

Now that we know that vitamin C is an effective antioxidant, let's find out your new favorites. There are different types of creams, toners and serums that are rich in vitamin C. When looking for a new product, pay attention to how rich it is in vitamin C, because this top ingredient is only effective from 3%. Can't find how much vitamin C is in a certain product? Then make sure that the ingredient is as high as possible in the ingredient list.

It is recommended that you start with the use of vitamin C in your skin care, as it is a very effective antioxidant. Vitamin C can sting your skin, but you will get used to it quickly. As long as it doesn't cause irritation, that stinging feeling can't hurt!
