Vitamin C Benefits For Skin (Skin के लिए Vitamin C के फायदे) | ClearSkin, Pune | (In HINDI)


You must have heard from a lot of people that
vitamin C is very beneficial for skin. Vitamin C is available in many different forms,
which may cause some confusion about which vitamin C products you should use. Today we will discuss the benefits of vitamin
C. Let’s see if vitamin C is good for skin. Is topical vitamin C good for skin? Hello, I am Dr. Dhananjay Chavan, Cosmetic
Dermatologist and Hair Transplant Surgeon, Clear Skin and Hair MD, Pune. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that protects
our skin from free radical damage. These free radicals are aggravated by pollution,
radiation and smoking to harm skin, making it dull and cause signs of premature ageing. Vitamin C protects your skin from cellular
and tissue damage caused by free radicals. Apart from this, vitamin C prevents skin from
getting hyperpigmented and stimulates collagen production. It is because of all these benefits that vitamin
C is found in so many skin care products. Vitamin C is also known by the name ascorbic
acid. It supports our immune system and helps calcium
and iron absorption. Vitamin C is water soluble. Our body does not produce or store vitamin
C. That is why it is necessary for us to eat or ingest vitamin C to maintain bodily functions. Eating vitamin C rich foods, fruits, and vegetables
will satisfy the daily vitamin C quota. But applying vitamin C topically has more
benefits. So let’s understand the benefits of topical
vitamin C. The first benefit is that vitamin C brightens
skin. As we know, vitamin C protects the skin from
free radical damage and prevents excess melanin production. Other than this vitamin C also plays a role
in natural skin lightening. It stimulates the production of glutathione
and vitamin E in our body which in turn stimulates the production of pheomelanin. This pigment replaces the darker pigment and
makes your skin light and bright. The second benefit is that vitamin C naturally
exfoliates the skin, bringing the lighter toned skin to the surface. The third benefit is that vitamin C improves
the skin texture. Vitamin C helps in skin cell renewal which
evens out the skin tone. The fourth benefit is that vitamin C stimulates
collagen production which makes the skin smooth and glowing. Vitamin C is an excellent healing agent for
the skin. In fact, research indicates that vitamin C
also helps with wound healing. By stimulating collagen production, vitamin
C heals and repairs the skin. The next benefit is sun protection. You know that vitamin C is an antioxidant
that protects our skin from free radical damage. It also shields our skin from UV radiation
and prevents pigmentation and photoageing. Vitamin C is important for the overall health
of the body. It can be taken both topically and orally. Vitamin C can be taken orally from fruits
and vegetables. Fruits like strawberry, orange, kiwifruit,
mango, grapefruit, papaya, melon, plums, grapes, apples and vegetables like red peppers , broccoli,
tomato, spinach and cauliflower are excellent sources of vitamin C.
But when we consume vitamin C orally, a very small percentage of it reaches our skin. In fact, research also says that topical vitamin
C has more benefits. The collagen in the body reduces with age. Vitamin C is extremely useful in boosting
the collagen levels in the body. Topical vitamin C is very effective in skin
rejuvenation and slowing down the ageing process. In fact topical vitamin C is 20 times more
effective than oral ingestion. Continuous use of vitamin C for 3 days itself
shows a lot of improvement in our skin. So let us discuss the topical forms of vitamin
C. Topical vitamin C is often found in moisturisers
and serums. Serums are thinner and silkier in texture
than moisturisers. Moisturisers hydrate our skin, and serums
penetrate our skin and controls specific issues. Let us take a look at the benefits of vitamin
C serums. Vitamin C serums have a higher concentration
of the necessary ingredients which is why they work better. Vitamin C products have a higher concentration
of vitamin C in the form of active ingredient L-Ascorbic acid. Products with vitamin C have 10-15% concentration
of L-Ascorbic acid. If you are going to use vitamin C, first start
with a lower concentration and then increase the concentration gradually. Vitamin C is available in different forms
and derivatives. L-Ascorbic acid is also called LAA and this
is the most effective form of vitamin C. It is less stable in other forms which may cause
irritation on the skin. If this suits your skin, it can bring about
the best results for your skin. It works best on normal to oily skin. Next is Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate which
is a water-soluble derivative. This causes less irritation to skin and is
a good option for dry and sensitive skin. Next is Ascorbyl Palmitate which is a stable
form and used in oil-based skincare formulas. It is less effective in other forms, but in
the stable for it is very effective in protecting the skin from free radical damage. The next form, Ascorbic Glucosamine, is effective
in reducing hyperpigmentation. It is also a water soluble derivative which
has antioxidant and skin brightening properties. However, not a lot of research has been carried
out on this derivative. The last derivative is Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate. This is stable and water soluble, gets easily
absorbed into the skin and gets converted to ascorbic acid. This brightens the skin and protects it from
free radical damage. Vitamin C is often combined with other ingredients
like hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid helps to hold in the moisture
in the skin. This keeps the skin hydrated and makes the
skin less prone to ageing. Vitamin E is also used in combination with
vitamin C. Ferulic acid is also an antioxidant and helps
to keep vitamin E and C stable, protects skin from free radical damage and stimulates collagen
production. So let us see how vitamin C is used. We will try and answer all the common and
popular questions. First question – When should we apply vitamin
C? How to use vitamin C serum? If you are using vitamin C serum, you should
apply it after your face is freshly cleansed. If you are using a vitamin C moisturiser,
then apply it after the serum. Next question, how to apply vitamin C serum? Wash your hands well before applying the serum
or moisturiser on your face. The next question is how much serum should
you use? Usually the amount of serum to be used is
mentioned on the bottle, this is based on the concentration of the serum. So make sure you read all the instructions
before using serum. Usually, a few drops of serum are enough to
apply on the whole face. It is necessary for the serum to be completely
absorbed by the facial skin. If the serum has not been absorbed completely
or has been over absorbed, use a little lesser serum. Whenever you use a serum, remember that your
remaining skincare products should be applied only after the serum has dried. If you are applying it at night, it is necessary
to apply moisturiser after the serum. If you are applying it in the morning, then
at least apply moisturiser and sunscreen. As we said before, you should initially start
with 10-15% vitamin C serum and increase the concentration if your skin can tolerate it. Mostly, the maximum concentration used is
15-20%. It is necessary to patch test any serum before
using, especially if you have dry and sensitive skin. Take a little serum and apply it behind your
ear or on your wrist. If you do not see any unusual reaction, you
can continue using it. To see the results of any product, you will
have to wait patiently. I want to share some tips so that you get
the best results. Tip number 1:
Use any skin formula regularly. Random use will not give you the desired results. Tip number 2:
Do not use expired or old products. Tip number 3:
Store your products well. Do not store the products in direct sunlight. L-Ascorbic acid, LAA or vitamin C may undergo
oxidation if directly exposed to sunlight. This is why they come only in dark glass bottles. The product has to be stored in an airtight
container, you should never leave the bottle open as oxygen can cause a breakdown of vitamin
C serum and make it inactive. Always keep the serum in a cool, dry place. Vitamin C can degrade because of high temperatures. Tip number 4:
Vitamin C serum can irritate sensitive skin. So if you have sensitive skin, you can use
magnesium ascorbyl phosphate instead of L-ascorbic acid, as this is gentler on the skin. Tip number 5:
While choosing a vitamin C serum, choose one that has a pH level close to 3.5, as this
will aid better absorption. Tip number 6:
Do not combine vitamin C serums that contain L-ascorbic acid with retinol which is vitamin
A and niacinamide which is vitamin B3. The pH levels of these ingredients do not
match and do not work together. Using these in combination may cause redness
on the skin. Tip number 7:
Wait at least 3 minutes before applying retinol or niacinamide with vitamin C serum. If you already have a product that has this
combination of ingredients, don’t worry. These have been formulated systematically
and scientifically to be used without harming your skin. Tip number 8:
Pay attention to the appearance, color, smell, and consistency of your serum. Your serum should be clear or white or a light
champagne color. Of it is cloudy, brown or dark in color, it
has become oxidised. Vitamin C serum is odourless. Tip number 9:
Do not use the serums that are available in clear bottles. So as you must have understood, vitamin C
is quite effective for the health of your skin. This can be orally consumed, but your body
cannot store it and you have to regularly consume it. The vitamin C you get from your diet may not
be enough for overall skin health. To keep your skin healthy it is more effective
to apply vitamin C topically. A topical serum may prove to be more effective
if it is combined with vitamin C from the diet. So make sure you
use vitamin C serum correctly. I hope that you got
the information you were looking for about the benefits of vitamin C and how you should
use it, from this video. If you have any more questions you can ask us
on www.clearskinindia.com. This is an educational video, please consult
with a doctor before using any product. Vitamin C is available in many different forms
– serums, moisturisers and even fruits and vegetables. Vitamin C plays a very important role in maintaining
your skin’s health and you should take care to include vitamin C
in your skincare routine and diet. But you should remember that vitamin C serums
or even vitamin C intake from the diet cannot be used as the main line of treatment
for any
skin issue. This is a supportive or maintenance therapy
which should be included additionally in your diet or skincare routine. If you have any skin issue, I hope you will
consult a dermatologist or skin specialist at the correct time and get it treated. All the best. Thank you.
