Reading time: 6 min

Vitamin C is a well-known ingredient for its ability to give your skin an amazing glow, protection, even skin tone and youthful appearance. But one common question remains: Is it better to apply Vitamin C in the morning or at night?

At Jess Beauty, we're dedicated to help you improve your skin health, with cruelty free formulas and natural ingredients.Let’s take a closer look together at Vitamin C and discover the perfect time for using this component in your routine and make the most out of it.


Vitamin-C, a must-use ingredient


Vitamin C is derived from sources like oranges, lemons, grapefruits, limes, kiwis, and all kinds of citrus fruits. It is considered an important ingredient in skin care because of its many benefits, such as: help to brighten skin, reduce dark spots, boost collagen production, protect against environmental damage and improve overall skin health.


We believe that a good moisturizer with Vitamin C is a must have in your day to day life. But… at any moment of the day?


First, what exactly are the functions of vitamin C in skincare?

Vitamin C, or L-ascorbic acid, is a versatile antioxidant that can positively impact the condition of the skin. Here are some functions of this must-use ingredient:


  1. Brightens skin tone

Vitamin C is famous for glowing up the skin because it inhibits melanin production, this eradicates black spots, uneven skin colour and hyperpigmentation. Leading to a brighter, clearer, more radiant complexion.

  1. Boost collagen production

Collagen is a natural protein that is responsible for skin firmness and elasticity, although this term generally is used to refer to a brand rather than a particular type of product. The signs of aging such as wrinkles and sagging skin are caused by the reduced collagen synthesis. Vitamin C enhances the production of collagen, improving the skin firmness and preventing aging marks, such as fine lines and wrinkles.

  1. Protects against free radicals:

Vitamin C combats oxidative stress by neutralizing free radicals that come with sun and pollution exposure; these unstable molecules damage collagen and elastin, leading to premature aging.

  1. Enhance Skin Repair:

Vitamin C is also essential as a wound healing nutrient in the skin’s internal systems. This function helps the healing of harmed skin cells and helps support production of new skin tissue. This makes it particularly effective in treating minor wounds and improving overall skin health as it reduces inflammation and promotes good skin health.



Why Everybody Should Use Vitamin C in Their Skincare Routine?

  • Suitable For everyone: Vitamin C can be very effective for every skin type, even for oily, dry, and sensitive skin. Due to its effectiveness and affordability, every one should have it in her skincare regimen.

  • Dual Action Power: Vitamin C works on two fronts: It solves currently noticeable problems such as discoloration or wrinkling and also shields skin against future harm instigated by environmental aggression.

  • Glow Booster: Like most non-mineral vitamins, Vitamin C, when taken regularly, definitely boosts the resonant skin tone. The brightening and smoothing factors help in enhancing features for a youthful and radiant skin.

  • Enhanced Combined Effects: Vitamin C also complements other active ingredients found in skincare products such as Vitamin E and ferulic acid. These combinations can work better together and improve the effectiveness of your skin care process.
