    Vitamin C - Lemons


    The ever-so-important Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant to help protect us, while also forming blood vessels, muscles and even collagen in our bones. Plus, it works as a powerhouse ingredient for your skin as it focuses on brightening, fighting harmful free radicals along with collagen and elastin formation. 

    Vitamin C has become an incredibly popular ingredient in skincare, and that’s why Dr. Kaplan includes it in some of his. From the new Diamond Contour SPF 30 Complete Complexion Treatment, to the Diamond Contour Lifting Rose Quartz Neck Serum and the Diamond Contour Intensive Anti-Aging Hand Treatment, Vitamin C is a prominent ingredient in his transformative formulas.

    In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the brightening properties of Vitamin C while also talking about Dr. Kaplan’s recommended products if you’re looking to add this ingredient into your daily regimen.

     

    The Brightening Benefits of Vitamin C

    Thinking about how Vitamin C has so many benefits can seem a little too good to be true, but it’s not! This ingredient is incredibly popular for a reason, and we’re going to dive a little bit more into why now.

    Many of us are looking for ways to brighten up our complexion, and Vitamin C is a key ingredient in making that happen. It does this because it holds high concentrations of ascorbic acid or L-Ascorbic acid, which is a powerful brightening ingredient. It also discourages the natural melanin production in your skin, which is what makes your skin produce dark spots, discoloration and hyperpigmentation. By discouraging that, Vitamin C keeps your skin tone even and these high concentrations of it allows your skin to appear less dull, brighter and more even toned. 

    Though we’re focusing on Vitamin C’s brightening benefits here, there’s also plenty more. Some of which we’ve already mentioned are fighting free radicals and producing collagen. Did you know that it can also reduce redness, the appearance of under eye circles and provide hydration? Talk about a powerhouse ingredient!
