The Benefits of Vitamin C for Body & Skin

Out of all of the antioxidant-packed ingredients we love around here, Vitamin C is pretty high up on our list. Many babes associate this skincare hero with bright, glowing results – and for good reason. Conversely, some of us attribute getting a dose of this Vitamin with our morning OJ. Hey, we’re just being honest here! And both thoughts on this amazing nutrient make total sense because the truth is that Vitamin C is indeed amazing for both your body and your complexion.

From helping to repair body tissues to protecting your skin from environmental stressors, it is no wonder why this ingredient has kept its buzz factor. We think every babe could use a little more Vitamin C in their life. Curious to get the lowdown and to know why? Here are only a few of the stellar benefits of Vitamin C for your body and skin.

Mighty Vitamin C can boost your immunity.

You’ve definitely heard this one before. Or, you have witnessed someone who was feeling a little under the weather chug back the orange juice. But before you go stock up on OJ, let us warn you that it isn’t a cure-all for nasty infections. However, even though there is little evidence to suggest that Vitamin C can truly prevent common colds, it can definitely help to boost your immunity.

Vitamin C is a micronutrient that helps to support your immune defense system in several ways. Firstly, it helps to strengthen multiple cellular functions of your immune system. This in turn makes it easier for you to fight off those sniffles. Additionally, since Vitamin C is such a powerful antioxidant, it also helps your body fight off free radicals and toxic compounds that would typically affect your health. That being said, adding a Vitamin C supplement to your diet or consuming foods that are high in this nutrient can support better health and diminish your chances of getting sick.

Don’t worry though, babe. There is plenty more where that came from. We’ll get into all of the antioxidant goodness this ingredient has to offer a little later in this blog on The Benefits of Vitamin C for Body & Skin.

Want to help your body produce more glorious collagen? Try some Vitamin C, baby.

Recently, the word “collagen” has garnered some serious attention in the beauty world. From powder supplements to tablets, it seems like every babe is looking to incorporate this protein into their lives. Between its ability to keep your skin looking youthful to the way it protects bone density, it is no wonder why collagen supplements are now considered to be a top beauty must-have.

However, you might be surprised to learn that Vitamin C plays a crucial role in increasing the amount of collagen your body produces. This is because Vitamin C regulates the synthesis of protein collagen. Thus, making it a key component to stimulating that collagen growth in the first place.

So while we’re not saying you need to ditch your latest collagen supplement purchase, hear this. By adding a Vitamin C supplement into your diet or by simply eating foods that are packed with this nutrient, you can help your body generate higher levels of hyaluronic acid and collagen. Both of which will keep your skin looking young, bouncy, and well, fabulous.

This standout ingredient can even help with wound healing.

Alright, this one sounds pretty wild, right? But babe, it’s facts. Vitamin C can help your body’s ability to heal faster.

This is also related to that essential collagen production we just mentioned above. Collagen protein is a major key to preserving and repairing your connective tissues, which all plays into how quickly and efficiently your body can bounce back from injury. And Vitamin C? Well, like we just said, your body needs it for the synthesis of that collagen.

So the next time you find yourself trying to heal from an injury, consider upping your Vitamin C intake and taking it easy, of course.

Antioxidants aren’t just good for the skin on your cute face.

We’ll admit it. This is the golden piece of information we’ve been looking forward to sharing with you the most on our list of Vitamin C Benefits for Body & Skin. Around here, we are *way* into antioxidants. And of course, all of what they can do for both your body and your complexion.

As we mentioned earlier, the antioxidants in Vitamin C can help your body fight off illness. Similarly, by ingesting this Vitamin you are helping to strengthen your skin’s natural barriers. We know that all sounds great, but get this. The only thing better than nourishing your body from the inside out is combining your Vitamin C intake with a stellar skincare routine. A.k.a. topically applying some of this glorious ingredient to your skin.

But since we’re on the topic of your cute face, here’s how Vitamin C benefits it…

Babe, where do we start? Between its unmatched ability to fight signs of aging to how well it works to brighten any uneven skin tone, Vitamin C is truly a skincare superstar.

We love including this gem in some of our favorite products for a slew of reasons. You already know that Vitamin C is packed with age-fighting antioxidants. However, you should also know that it is unmatched for kicking dull skin to the curb. This is because Vitamin C is a pro at preventing melanin production. This in turn helps to lighten hyperpigmentation and visible dark spots. Not to mention, any babe who has used the right Vitamin C products already knows that they can make your skin glow like no other.

Alright, we get it. At this point, you’re ready to scour the internet for the best Vitamin C products, right? C’mon, sis. There’s no need to do that when you have us. We’re about to break down the *best* Vitamin C products that quite frankly, will step up your skincare game in a big way.

Using a Vitamin C cream will keep your skin looking youthful, for longer.

One way we love to incorporate this powerful ingredient into our lives is by simply using it in our moisturizer. I mean, you already know you need to moisturize every day. Therefore, why not do so with a cream that contains some mighty Vitamin C?

It doesn’t get much better than BBE’s HyperActive Anti-Aging Vitamin C cream, babe. Packed with the Vitamin C we’ve been raving about during this entire article and with hyaluronic acid, this product will nourish your skin on a daily. What’s more, it is lightweight, smells ahhh-mazing, and will completely restore the look of otherwise dull, dry, aging skin. Apply this bad boy morning and night to a cleansed, squeaky-clean face and watch the glowing results (and your skin!) come alive.

Oh and, before we go any further into our fave Vitamin C products, we should probably address the skincare elephant in the room. If you’ve heard the whispers about Vitamin C causing stinging, itching, and overall not-so-cute side effects, don’t stress babe. We’d never play you like that, and our Vitamin C products were formulated with calming botanical extracts and with sensitive beauties in mind. No irritating aftermath around here, girlfriend. Nope, just glowing and healthy skin for the win.

Acne-prone babes can also benefit from using this mighty nutrient.

Maybe you deal with a pesky breakout here and there (and babe, who doesn’t?) or you want to keep your skin looking youthful and acne-free. If that sounds dreamy, Vitamin C is also for you gorgeous.

Consider incorporating a lightweight Vitamin C serum into your routine. Not only will this enhance your existing skincare regimen, but it is an easy way to regularly give your skin a concentrated dose of this powerful nutrient. BBE’s HyperActive Anti-Aging Vitamin C serum will make your skin instantly softer. But with continued use, you’ll be like breakouts, where? Not on your cute face, babe. No way.

Babe, you can now get your daily dose of Vitamin C in an easy to use toner!

What could be better than spritzing your way to glowing, radiant, and healthier skin? In our books, the answer is not much babe. If you want to step your Vitamin C game way up, we've got you. Just add BBE’s HyperActive Anti-Aging Vitamin C toner to your life, pronto.

We’ll admit it. Using the whole fam of BBE Vitamin C products is your best bet to reap some serious Vitamin C goodness. However, you can definitely add one or two products to your skincare routine to start and then go from there. Fair warning though, the Vitamin C obsession is real once you begin to see those results. So, don’t be surprised if you find yourself adding to cart on all of these gems.

Using this toner morning and night will give your skin a boost of antioxidants. Moreover, it will make your moisturizer sink into your skin effortlessly. On top of that, we want to also mention that Vitamin C reduces redness. Therefore, we love keeping this spritzing sensation on hand just in case any skin irritations or mishaps arise. You know, those situations when applying a cream just isn’t as refreshing as a Vitamin C packed facial mist.

Ready for more Vitamin C in your life?

Now that you’re in on some of the most impressive benefits of Vitamin C for your body & skin, we’re pretty sure that you are, babe!

Whether you opt for a Vitamin C supplement or choose to incorporate more nutrient-rich foods into your diet, this gem is certainly worth having in your life. Nourish your body from the inside out, babe! This approach definitely pays off and is the perfect complement to your Vitamin C infused skincare routine.

Adding nourishing Vitamin C products to your beauty regimen can produce some stunning results. Not to mention, can keep your skin looking youthful & feeling stronger. And hey, isn’t that what all beauty-obsessed babes want at the end of the day?
