Woman applying Vitamin C skincare product

Anyone who’s dealt with the cold in fall and winter has probably had a cup of orange juice or a packet of Vitamin C to alleviate their symptoms. While the jury is still out about whether or not it’s an effective treatment, Vitamin C has been shown to have many benefits to individual parts of your body, including your skin.

Why is Vitamin C important for the body overall?

Whether you get your daily amount from citrus fruit or multivitamins, Vitamin C is vital for the growth and development of your body. It is used in several body processes, including immune system regulation, wound healing, and bone and teeth health. It’s also an antioxidant that protects against free radicals and many pollutants.

What role does Vitamin C play in skin health?

Vitamin C is used to create collagen, a structural protein that is involved in your joints and skin elasticity. Having healthy levels of Vitamin C can lead to firmer skin, fewer fine lines, and improved hydration. During warmer weather, it can even be a helpful supplement with sunscreen to defend against UV light damage.

Do you have to eat Vitamin C to enjoy the benefits?

While it’s important to have a healthy amount of Vitamin C in your diet, you can also use the nutrient topically on your skin for specific effects. It has been featured in many skincare products, including the C+ Correcting Complex 30% and Intellishade from Revision. Applying products like these to your skin can promote collagen growth for similar results from ingesting Vitamin C from food and supplements.

Dr. Jewel Greywoode, a facial plastic specialist at our Uptown office, stresses the importance of proper skincare. "The health of your skin is one of the most important factors in facial rejuvenation. Hydrating your skin and reducing the effects of sun damage through topical application of vitamin C products is an important aspect of total skin care."
