Vitamin C and Lemon Extract are actually some of the most powerful ingredients for dark spots and discolorations – and they come straight from nature! Among the many ingredients available in creams out on the store shelves, one of the most popular is Vitamin C. But what is Vitamin C and what can it do? Let us break it down plain and simple and see exactly what this key ingredient can do for African American skin.
What exactly is it?
Vitamin C is an antioxidant. There really isn’t much more to it than that. Vitamin C can be found anywhere from the foods we eat, supplements we take, or (Yup! You guessed it!) face creams. Because this well known vitamin can be found in just about anywhere, it can be easily overlooked.
What can it do?
Do not underestimate the power of this mini molecule! Vitamin C can bring many benefits to the skin. For starters, Vitamin C can prevent and even reverse sun damage on the skin. Its antioxidant factor can actually work in your skin’s favor. How? Antioxidants fight against ultraviolet rays that touch the surface of our skin. They prevent them from forming free radicals in our skin that speed up the appearance of aging. This factor, along with a dab of sunscreen for extra sun protection can really make a difference on your appearance.
Vitamin C also helps in producing collagen for the skin. In simple terms, collagen is a type of protein that helps hold the skin together, giving its youthful look. So a topical Vitamin C cream can actually promote the production of collagen to give your skin its natural hold and fight against the appearance of wrinkles.
So there you have it ladies & gentlemen…The power of Vitamin C. Natural products, specifically lemon based products, would most likely contain Vitamin C. So next time you’re out shopping for a new product, be on the lookout for this key ingredient. Your skin will thank you in the long run!
