4 Best Vitamin C Benefits for Your Skin   

No need to worry, ladies - the skin superhero is here…vitamin C  


1. Protects Against UV Damage

4. The brightening side

One of the most significant benefits of vitamin C for skin is its ability to protect against UV damage. Exposure to UV rays from the sun can cause free radicals, which can damage collagen and elastin fibres in our skin, leading to premature ageing, fine lines, and wrinkles. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can neutralise free radicals and help protect our skin from all that sunny drama. And when applied topically, vitamin C can also help to reduce the appearance of sunspots and hyperpigmentation. And speaking of that, let’s introduce you to the unmatched face cleanser that does away with all the sun issues - allowing your skin to feel firm and supple. We’re talking about the Lakmé 9 to 5 Vitamin C facial foam - providing intense hydration, this foam evens out skin tone and keeps your dermis protected from sun damage.  

Plus, if radiance is on your agenda, the built-in soft silicone facial brush comes to your rescue. Designed to gently exfoliate your skin, removing dead skin cells and reducing dullness - it massages the skin, improving blood circulation, promoting an A1 look.  

So, if doing away with the curses of sun damage and inviting beautiful skin is on your to-do, fall back on this facial BFF.  


2. Anti-aging angle

Don’t we all wish we could lock time and keep our youth intact forever? Well, that wish is a close reality with Vitamin C in the picture - an anti-aging powerhouse. It promotes collagen production, which is essential for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness. Which may get you thinking…what is collagen? Well, it is a protein that keeps your skin plump and youthful looking! However, as we age, the collagen production slows down, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles (ugh!) However, using vitamin C in your skincare slows down this process and keeps your skin looking #21 and fab. So, if you’re wondering what’s an effective vitamin C solution you can rely on, let's meet Lakmé's two hero products - the Lakmé Vitamin C+ Night Cream and the Lakmé Vitamin C+ Day Cream.Both enriched with the power of Vitamin C, murumuru butter and shea Butter, combat ageing around the clock like a dream! 

Plus, the M-factor, the murumuru butter is known to moisturise skin without clogging your pores and shea butter is known to lock in hydration for several hours. Working together so that you not only wake up to feel-good and young-looking skin but also enjoy this kiss of Vitamin C all day long - this duo is magical!

If you feel your skin covered in dents and curves; loaded with unevenness - you’re in the right place at the right time. For we’re about to talk about the texture improving solution, vitamin C. All you gotta do is invite it into your skincare routine - and watch it exfoliate your skin. Resulting in smoother, softer skin, vitamin C also helps to unclog pores, which can reduce the appearance of acne and blackheads - basically, anything that makes your dermis look bumpy and grumpy. And now that we’ve hyped up the vitamin C brilliance, you have to know our number #1 pick…it’s the Lakmé 9 to 5 Vitamin C+ Face Serum. Enriched with kakadu plums - containing a hundred times more vitamin C than oranges, this serum is another option on the list.
