The Beauty Benefits Of Vitamin C



Vitamin C is the ultimate hero of vitamins. It is seriously ahhhmazing. The bad boy helps the body make collagen, strengthens the red blood cells and keeps your skin looking gorgeous. It's at the top of the vitamin pyramid, and it's really REALLY important to take some every single day. Vitamin C is 100% water-soluble, which means your body can't store it for later. So, as soon as you take your daily dose of this crazy-amazing vitamin, the body uses it up immediately.

So why is Vitamin C a must-have? 
Here are four fabulous reasons.
  1. It's great for healthy hair. Other than biotin, Vitamin C is fantastic for hair strength and growth.
  2. It makes you look and feel more energised. Vitamin C helps the body absorb iron (which is important for fighting fatigue and feeling great).
  3. It is amazing for nail growth. It makes the nails strong, healthy and naturally free of ridges and spots. Take a supplement every day and watch those nails grow.
  4. It makes your skin glow, glow, glow. Vitamin C is the best source for beating ageing, wrinkles, blemishes, dryness flakiness and sunburn. You name it, this superhero will beat it.
I take a supplement every day. I also like using a serum that has a high level of Vitamin C which I smooth over my face every morning. According to Doctor Oz, applying Vitamin C to the skin can be 20 times more effective than eating it. Look for a serum that contains 5-10% Vitamin C and includes ascorbic acid or L-ascorbic acid. I apply it after cleansing and toning, and for a super anti-ageing boost, combine Vitamins C and E together.

Here are the Vitamin C serums I have been using for 2 years, and I can honestly say they are the BEST. They have made such a huge difference to my skin and you can only buy them here. I love using Obagi Professional C Serum 10 Percent and I'm keen to try Obagi Professional C Serum 15 Percent.
