After hibernating on the couch over the holidays, surviving on a diet regimen of party foods and being a couch potato, it's possibly time to consider upping your vitamin consumption.
Especially, Vitamin C; the new super vitamin trend for skincare set to take 2018 by storm.
Don't fret if you cannot face exchanging the Terry's Chocolate orange for an actual one just yet, this Vitamin C goes directly on your skin and also is the latest skin care trend with a large 3,379% increase in searches for Vitamin C skin treatment recently on Pinterest.
Whilst it can not stop you from getting a cold, Vitamin C serums can brighten and improve your overall skin tone while repairing dull skin in addition to combating polluted and dark areas.
But mainly Vitamin C is most useful to fight the signs of ageing. Vitamin C is vital to raise the collagen production in your skin. This will guarantee it stays strong, healthy, and flexible.
So, consuming an orange won't make you look one decade younger, but boosting the Vitamin C in your skincare routine simply might the ticket for boosting your confidence this year.
[The antioxidant properties of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and its role in collagen synthesis make vitamin C a vital molecule for skin health. Dietary and topical ascorbic acid have beneficial effects on skin cells, and some studies have shown that vitamin C may help prevent and treat ultraviolet (UV)-induced photodamage.]
Consuming vitamin C also has many advantages so why not do both? Eat some oranges and also incorporate this awesome vitamin into your skincare routine.
