Let's talk about Vitamin C


This is Martha Thomas, head of customer care for Tree of Life Beauty, and I want to welcome you to our weekly newsletter where we discuss important ways to age gracefully, “how-tos” for keeping skin healthy as you age, and so much more about your skincare regimen.

Please be advised that we are not doctors or dermatologists, and this article should not be taken as medical advice or any medical statement. Any questions or issues involving your skin-care needs should be discussed with a physician, and we highly recommend you consult with your doctor before taking up any skin-care regimen.


Vitamin C is an essential water-soluble vitamin known to exhibit antioxidant properties and is vital to human survival. Topical Vitamin C is known to help improve the skin in a number of ways.

Benefits of Vitamin C

Fights Free-Radicals - Vitamin C helps with antioxidant protection. Antioxidants help fight free-radicals that can damage skin. These free-radicals are caused by many things, some of which are sun damage, pollution, stress, and cigarette smoke (to name a few). 

Helps With Collagen Production - Vitamin C is said to be an essential component of collagen production. Collagen helps skin to retain its shape and plumpness making skin look and feel more firm and smooth helping to reduce wrinkles and fine lines.

Helps Repair Damaged Skin - Vitamin C can help reduce the appearance of brown spots and sun damage helping to brighten your skin's appearance giving it a more even tone and a clearer complexion.

How To Use Vitamin C

Vitamin C comes in many different types of products, such as cleansers, toners, creams, serums, and gels. How you use it will depend on what product you are using. A good rule of thumb for applying products is to clean and tone first and then apply the thinnest products first to the thickest products last.

Vitamin C can be used both day and night as it helps during the day to fight against damage to the skin and helps at night to repair skin that is already damaged.
