Vitamin C: A Powerful Anti-Aging Tool

Did you know that Vitamin C also has many anti-aging properties? Whether you’re looking for smoother skin or a youthful glow, Vitamin C can help!

At Sanctuary Day Spa, Vitamin C is one of our favourite ingredients! It has lots of benefits, including boosting your skin’s brightness and providing hydration. But did you know that Vitamin C also has many anti-aging properties? Whether you’re looking for smoother skin or a youthful glow, Vitamin C can help!

Hydrates skin and smooths out wrinkles

When your skin is well moisturized, it becomes plump. In the process, any fine lines or wrinkles are at least partially filled, reducing their appearance. However, when your skin dries out, it tightens. Since the wrinkles and fine lines are no longer filled, they seem much harsher.  Fortunately, hydrating ingredients such as Vitamin C encourage your skin to plump out again. You’ll soon be left with smooth skin!

Promotes collagen production

Collagen is a protein in your skin that is responsible for elasticity. As we get older, our collagen production naturally slows down—that’s why skin sags with age. However, Vitamin C encourages your skin to increase its collagen production, allowing you to preserve your skin’s youthful elasticity.

Protects against sun and environmental damage

Although collagen production decreases with age, your existing collagen supply can also be damaged by free radicals—a type of harmful molecule that is especially common outdoors due to pollution and the sun. Fortunately, antioxidants like Vitamin C can prevent free radicals from damaging your collagen, preserving your skin’s elasticity.

Brightens the skin

Last but certainly not least, Vitamin C is known for brightening the skin! It also helps to minimize hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and uneven skin tone. After using Vitamin C-infused skincare, you can expect a radiant, youthful glow!
