Why Vitamin C is Good for Hair and Skin

Vitamin C, also known as L-ascorbic acid, has many amazing and potent benefits for your health in general. It is said to improve your immune system, healthy heart function and even prevents cancer. Although it is readily available, there are so many people who still suffer from Vitamin C deficiencies which may lead to symptoms like nosebleeds, bleeding gums and a weak immune system among others.

I did some more research and I found out that this vitamin does wonders to your skin and hair. It is an antioxidant and it also contains properties that help in boosting collagen production in the skin. Which means it helps in promoting skin elasticity, thus helping to minimize the presence of fine lines and wrinkles on your face. It also helps in boosting collagen production in our hair, which is very important for the growth and health of the hair.

Since this vitamin is beneficial for the skin and hair, then we need to make sure we take get enough of it. Here are 3 ways to do so.

 

Use the right beauty products

Using the right beauty products for our skin and hair helps. It is best to shop around to find the best products for your skin and hair type. Vitamin C hair products are great in removing mineral buildup accumulated on the surface of the hair. So look out for shampoos that include it.

Vitamin C serums are also available to promote thick hair, get rid of dandruff and improve hair growth. So shop around to find the right serums. Beauty stores like Capital Hair and Beauty stock hair and skin products from various brands.

Take more fresh fruits and vegetables that are high in Vitamin C

Eating or in some cases drinking Vitamin C rich foods is one of the easiest and most common ways to enjoy the benefits.

Citrus fruits like lemon, orange, grapefruit and lime are rich in Vitamin C. Dark leafy greens like spinach, kale and turnip greens make a really good source as well. So does Broccoli, cauliflower, and tomatoes.

 

Apply Vitamin C rich fruits topically

You don’t only get the benefit of Vitamin C on your skin from the fruits and vegetables you eat, you can also derive those benefits by topically applying them on your skin. Applying the juice of fruits high in Vitamin C, like the citrus fruits and tomatoes, directly on your skin can do wonders.

The juice of some citrus fruits, most especially lemon or lime, can be a little too harsh for sensitive skin. If you have sensitive skin, then the best way you can go about it is to mix a little water to the juice before applying it on your skin. Once you’ve applied the juice on your skin, leave it to dry for about 20-30 minutes then wash off with cold water and pat your face dry.

The Vitamin C in the juice makes the skin glow. If you were suffering from acne, the juice helps to reduce the inflammation and heal the cuts caused from a burst pimple.

These are just some of the benefits of Vitamin C for the skin and hair. Do you have any tips to share? Please drop them in the comments section below. Thanks for stopping by.

It is a known fact that berries are one of the most skin friendly foods. So blend in some mulberries, raspberries and blackberries into a smoothie to make a delicious drink full of antioxidants. If this is a part of your breakfast each morning, within 2 weeks you will find noticeable difference in your skin texture.

 

  1. Red reboot

Add tomatoes, beetroot and carrots puree to 1/4th cup of water, and have this drink on an empty stomach. Tomato, beetroot and carrots are known to purify the blood and are rich in vitamins.
