8 Skin Health Benefits of Vitamin C
Oranges get all the credit for the immune-boosting powers of Vitamin C, but your skincare should be packing some seriously nourishing vitamins. Vitamin C is a remarkable skincare ingredient when it comes to restoring skin in today’s ever-changing environment. With this skin superfood in each of our products, you won’t want to miss out on these skin-changing benefits:

1. Age reversal for youthful-looking skin

Pesky free radicals are working against us all the time, wreaking all kinds of havoc on our skin — fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. Luckily, Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that stabilizes the unstable free radicals. By targeting this damage caused by pollution and radiation, Vitamin C is a powerful anti-aging antioxidant.

2. Brightness booster

Dull skin is a tell-tale sign of neglected, prematurely aging skin, but it doesn’t have to be this way. The concentration of Vitamin C in Pour Moi promotes bright, revitalized skin. When you follow the Pour Moi Ritual, you’re getting triple the Vitamin C twice a day for a noticeably brighter, even skin tone!

3. Promotes collagen production

Not only is collagen a stellar skincare ingredient, it’s found naturally in the skin as a defense against visible signs of aging. Using products rich in Vitamin C, such as Pour Moi skincare, boosts the natural production of collagen in the skin so fine lines and wrinkles get smoothed out. This results in a more youthful look appearance from the potent skincare and from skin's improved ability to produce collagen.

4. Protects against UV radiation and free radicals

We’ve raved about antioxidant protection from pollution and free radicals, and we’re here to remind you to take your vitamins! Namely, take your Vitamin C daily when you use Pour Moi for added protection against the aggressive environments. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that protects the skin from the sun’s harmful rays and repels unstable free radicals from damaging the skin. You don’t want to wear the effects of pollution on your face, so prepare ahead of time with antioxidant-rich sources of Vitamin C.

5. Speeds up healing of irritation, breakouts, and sunburns

Vitamin C works wonders when it comes to speeding up the body’s natural ability to heal itself. When the environment is causing skin to become sensitive, irritated, and inflamed, our climate smart Day Creams deliver Vitamin C straight to the source. On top of that, any redness or breakouts caused by the climate will subside when Vitamin C is involved.

6. Hydrating & moisturizing

We all know that vitamins are good for us, and Vitamin C is there to promote overall health in the skin. Many people suffer from dehydrated skin that goes misdiagnosed as excessive dryness or oiliness. With skincare rich in Vitamin C, skin will become noticeably moisturized as skin discovers its proper moisture balance.

7. Firming

The Vitamin C found in Pour Moi skincare promotes the skin’s natural collagen production and boosts its performance for plump, lively skin. Collagen also fills in fine lines and wrinkles, so Vitamin C has stellar anti-aging properties. You can think of Vitamin C as a built-in promoter of firmness and elasticity.

8. Even out skin tone and reduce discoloration

You don’t have to accept breakouts and dark spots from skin damage or premature aging as a permanent part of your complexion any longer when you incorporate Vitamin C into your regular skincare routine. Acne scars and discoloration will begin to fade as the vitamin goes to work to reduce and remove unwanted marks on your skin. All Pour Moi products — Balancers, Serums, Day Creams, and Night Creams — are packed with all kinds of hydrating and nourishing agents, and Vitamin C is one of our great hero ingredients. With all of these amazing benefits, Vitamin C will revamp your skin for a refreshed complexion, so you can meet the climate with confidence.
