Top 5 Benefits To Vitamin C For Sensitive Skin

November 28, 2016

Vitamin C is in many skin care products. People turn to the ingredient because they realize it has great healing properties. Sometimes, though, individuals with sensitive skin are doubtful that vitamin C can work on their skin and they don’t know if it’s safe to use. Vitamin C for sensitive skin is not only possible, it’s beneficial. Sensitive skin care products that contain vitamin C can help soothe irritated faces and faces that break out easily.

Top 5 Benefits to Vitamin C for Sensitive Skin

1. Rapid Absorption Into the Skin

A major benefit to vitamin C for sensitive skin is that it’s absorbed quickly. This means that you don’t have to rub it in vigorously, apply it in exorbitant amounts, or play around with it too much to have it work for your skin. People with sensitive skin know that touching the face too much or applying too much product can make face problems worse. One of the best vitamin C benefits is that you can apply it moderately and gently, and have it get down to the business of healing your skin.

2. Non-Oily Vitamin C for Sensitive Skin

Vitamin C is often used in non-oily and non-greasy serums that hydrate the skin at normal levels, rather than in heavy creams that can clog pores because they’re overbearing. The oil-free texture of vitamin C, even when used in products that contain essential oils, is ideal for people with sensitive skin.

3. Boosted Collagen Production

People with sensitive skin might also be dealing with other skin issues, such as loss of elasticity due to aging. Vitamin C is a great ingredient to boost skin suppleness without having to over hydrate the face with greasy creams. Use a gentle product with vitamin C daily to stimulate collagen production and get rid of fine lines.

4. Protection from Damaging UV Rays

Vitamin C serums offer protection against damaging UV rays, so people with sensitive skin can turn to this ingredient instead of commercial sunblocks that might clog pores and irritate skin. Anyone going out in extreme sun, or staying in the sun for longer than 30 minutes, should use a non-oily SPF cream in addition to a vitamin C cream, however.

5. A Natural and Gentle Skin Lightener

If you have sensitive skin and dark spots, you shouldn’t use any kind of lightening products that strip the skin or are ultra abrasive. Vitamin C is a perfect gentle skin lightener and brightener. It naturally bleaches the skin over time, providing an easy increase in radiance for people with sensitive skin.

You can use vitamin C for sensitive skin twice a day for maximum results, in the morning and at night. Non-oily and non-greasy vitamin C skin serums can be applied underneath makeup and before using any eye creams.

There are so many fun pairings in life, a chilled glass of crisp rosé with a fresh green salad, high waisted jeans with a colorful midriff top, a smoky eye with a neutral lip. But when it comes to skincare, the risk of layering or pairing the wrong ingredients together can leave lasting, skin-deep effects. Breakouts, rashes, redness and excessive peeling and flaking are just some of the pitfalls of bad pairings!  

With the growing number of concentrated, active ingredient products on the market, it’s a good idea to know which products work best together, and which to avoid.
