How Vitamin C Saved My Skin.

September 18, 2018


I have to be honest - I have always had great skin - and I know that I need to thank my Mom for that (I would if she was here but sadly I lost her a very long time ago). Last year I turned the BIG 50 and I noticed hyper-pigmentation around my eyes and on the sides of my mouth.

Also my skin just seemed dull - okay maybe I was older but there weren't many more wrinkles (a few), my skin just seemed to lose its vitality. And after some research and extensive reading on Vitamin C - this is why I started using it:

Vitamin C is widely known for its antioxidant benefits for your body but also your skin, brilliantly boosting collagen while helping to treat UV exposure photo-damage,” says Dr Dennis Gross, the New York-based dermatologist. Adding to that, the cult ingredient will also boost skin’s luminosity and smooth skin tone - so it really is a skincare hero. 

And seriously I felt that my skin needed a hero.....and it has been a year now and all the pigmentation has gone! 

So how does it work? And what did it do?

L-ascorbic acid boosts collagen production and smooths and firms skin, as well as fending off photo-ageing.   However, any type of vitamin C in your moisturizing serum and lotion will offer some skin benefit. And honestly it did smooth my skin - all the bumps are gone as well as the roughness.

Lynette from Pink and Purple Dots did a fabulous review on these products. Here are some of the screenshots - but you can definitely read more on her blog post.

My last graphic I saw recently was that Vitamin C also aided with weight loss - has anyone experienced this effect? Can you let me know? I wonder how that works?
