The benefits of vitamin C for your skin

The benefits of vitamin C for your skin

This post is brought to you by our Esthetics Experts Panel, composed of skin care professionals, educators + authorities with decades of experience in the industry.

With the help of our Esthetics Experts Panel, here's everything you need to know about vitamin C, all the amazing benefits of vitamin C for your skin and how to tell if you should use a vitamin C in your own skin care routine.

Vitamin C anti-aging benefits

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that fights free radical skin damage. Free radicals are unstable molecules (caused by UV, pollution ‐ our own bodies even produce them) that cause oxidative stress and speed up the appearance of lines, sagging and discoloration. Vitamin C works by binding to these free radicals, to prevent oxidative damage and it can help prevent signs of premature aging by stimulating the production of collagen, which deteriorates as we age.

“Antioxidants improve your skin natural regeneration process to repair damaged cells,” says Debbie Jones, licensed esthetician and member of our Esthetics Experts Panel. “Vitamin C works by binding to these free radicals to prevent oxidative damage and help delay age signs.”

The right vitamin C percentage

Some formulas promote a high percentage of vitamin C, but pushing up the percentage can increase the chance of irritation, breakouts or bumps. Vitamin C derivatives are safer and more effective for the skin, because they are more stable and less irritating than the active form of vitamin C. Bioelements vc10 daily glowvc10 nightly bright and vc10 eye bright serum are properly calibrated with stabilized 10% vitamin C triple-sourced from vitamin C derivatives + natural acerola cherries (which have 65x greater vitamin C than oranges!) to minimize irritation.

How to get 24 hours of vitamin C benefits


Want to experience the most superior vitamin C available? Use a powerhouse duo of 10% vitamin C innovations.

IN THE AM:
apply vc10 daily glow vitamin C serum. This potent C has a type A personality – to give skin serious glow, as it fights free radical damage like lines, spots and sag caused by sun, pollution and chronological aging.

IN THE PM:
apply vc10 nightly bright. This overnight sensation brightens, hydrates and delivers radiance as it fights photoaging.

AM + PM: gently pat in (do not rub) a small amount of vc10 eye bright contour under eye area and upper eyelids

These formulas are powered by a signature vc10 concentration of 10% stabilized vitamin C triple-sourced from C derivatives + natural acerola cherries.

How to tell if you should use a vitamin C serum

A very common question people have is “do I need to use vitamin C on my skin?” The answer is simple: if you have skin, then you need a vitamin C serum!

“Vitamin C is for everyone and anyone who is looking to address and combat the accumulative daily damage to their skin,” shares Dawn Gantt, licensed esthetician and member of the Bioelements Esthetics Experts Panel. “A huge benefit of vitamin C is that it helps the skin heal itself, and every skin needs healing on an everyday basis.”
