Vitamin C Benefits for the Skin

 

by

We don’t mean to sound like your mom, but did you take your vitamins today?

You already know vitamin C is great for your body; it helps ward off colds, keeps you feeling healthy, and even helps you get rid of hangovers. However, you might be surprised to learn that vitamin C is actually incredibly beneficial for your skin. 

Why should you care? Well for starters, your skin looks dull, tired, and older than you actually are. We know the truth hurts. But we’d never drop a bomb on you like this without giving you a solution for your problem. 

The experts at Disco know men’s skin inside and out. We’ve worked tirelessly to develop a skin care line that works to help keep men’s skin within healthy pH levels to maintain optimum health. 

We can tell you exactly why you need to include vitamin C in your skin care routine, why you might want to use it.

Benefits of Vitamin C for Skin

Skin care is self care, and using products that have quality, all-natural ingredients will help keep your skin looking youthful and healthy. 

Unless you grew up with someone in your life that taught you how to take care of your skin, you’re probably still using soap and water to wash your face. It’s cool, bro, we’ve got you covered. 

Vitamin C can do wonders for your skin, and you can grab the benefits by adding products to your routine that include it (so put the carton of OJ down unless you’re going to drink it). 

Here’s everything you can expect from vitamin C skin care. 

Antioxidant Protection

You probably didn’t know it, but your skin is at war on a daily basis. It’s enemy? Free radicals. Never heard of them? Without getting too science-heavy, here’s how free radicals damage your skin.

Everything is made up of molecules, and to be balanced, a molecule needs two electrons. Free radicals are molecules that are unbalanced; they only have one electron. 

Some free radicals exist in your own body, but many of them exist in the environment. External stressors like UV sun rays, cigarette smoke (from your own or someone else’s cigarettes), pollution, and even household cleaning products are all sources of free radicals. 

Because free radicals are more unbalanced than your last Bumble match, they look for molecules that are balanced to latch onto. Healthy molecules, like the ones that live in your skin cells, are an easy target. 

When a free radical steals electrons from a healthy molecule, it damages the molecule and damages the cell where the molecule lives. The damage is done to the cell results in sagging skin, loss of elasticity, fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation (aka age spots). 

What can you do about free radical damage? You can use antioxidants. 

Antioxidants work as a shield to protect your healthy molecules. They are also balanced molecules that guard your skin cells and offer one of their electrons to free radicals so that the free radical doesn’t attack your skin. 

Antioxidants are like superheroes for your skin cells, and vitamin C is one of nature’s best antioxidants. In fact, vitamin C is a known “electron donor,” which makes it the perfect solution for preventing oxidative stress on the skin. 

Skin Brightener

We already leveled with you and told you your skin was looking a little dull. Luckily, you’ve got a solution. 

Vitamin C is a potent skin brightener, able to rejuvenate skin and restore a healthy skin tone. In fact, studies show it’s effective in fading dark spots of hyperpigmentation. Vitamin C helps create a more even, youthful skin tone by fading spots, brightening your skin, and helping keep it evenly toned. 

Hydration

Even if your skin is oily, you need a moisturizer and you need hydration. Skin that is oily is sometimes a result of dry, dehydrated skin. When your skin doesn’t have enough hydration, it sends a message to your sebaceous glands to make more oil. This can create a skin that looks and feels oily. 

The solution? Your skin needs hydration, and it needs it in several different ways. Moisturizing ingredients add moisture and water to your skin, but in order for those ingredients to be effective, your skin needs to be able to retain the moisture. 

Vitamin C helps your skin retain moisture by preventing transepidermal moisture loss (aka moisture loss from the inside of your body to the outside of your skin by evaporation.

Anti-Aging

Whether or not you’re currently concerned with anti-aging you should be. The sooner you begin using anti-aging products and ingredients on your skin, the longer your skin will stay looking youthful. 

As you get older, your collagen levels decrease, making your skin sag and wrinkle. Vitamin C helps fight against the signs of aging by supporting healthy levels of collagen and elastin production in your skin. 

Dark-Circle Fighter

The combination of vitamin C’s brightening abilities and collagen-boosting properties make it a powerful tool for combating dark circles under the eyes that can make you look tired and out of it. With a single swipe of the right product, you can eliminate dark circles, hydrate your under-eye area, and deliver antioxidant-rich age-fighting ingredients to your thin, under-eye skin. 

Vitamin C Benefits for the Skin: Where to Sign Up

Curious how you can get the benefits of vitamin C for your own mug? We’ve got you covered there, too. 

Disco is the skin line created by a man for men’s skin. Our products aren’t like what you find at the bullseye store; our products are made specifically to address the skin needs of a man. 

Men’s skin is thicker, tougher, and able to grow hair. It also has a completely different pH balance than a woman’s. You need skin care that’s built for your skin, and Disco is the brand to deliver it. 

We rely on vitamin C in our products to help hydrate, brighten, and provide antioxidant protection. Here’s where you can find vitamin C in our products and how you can incorporate them into an easy, daily skin care routine to keep you looking as sexy as you feel. 

Moisturize

Every skin needs moisture, and we’ve got the moisturizer that works best for men’s skin. Our Hydrating Face Moisturizer is packed with hydrating and antioxidant-loaded vitamin C to keep your skin bright and moisture-locked. 

Our moisturizer is lightweight and absorbs super fast, so you can take care of your face and get on with your day. Macadamia nut oil keeps your skin looking wrinkle-free while vitamin E hydrates your skin and conditions it, leaving it feeling soft, smooth, and touchable.

For Your Eyes Only

Your eyes say a lot about you, and your eyes aren’t saying good things, man. Bags, dark circles, and fine lines and wrinkles make your eyes look tired and older than they actually are. Vitamin C works to reduce these lame conditions so you can look like the studly, strapping young lad you are. 

Disco’s Repairing Eye Stick is the solution for getting next-level skin care for your entire eye area. Loaded with vitamin C, you can swipe on our eye stick and watch your dark circles disappear, no additional sleep required. 

We also include pycnogenol, a plant-based extract from coastal French pines that helps reduce under-eye swelling (aka bags), brighten up dark skin, and even out skin tone. It’s also an excellent antioxidant source.

Niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3, helps keep the fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes plumped and promotes collagen production. It also helps to smooth the skin and condition it, leaving your skin looking firmer and more toned.

A surprising ingredient in our eye stick? Caffeine. Caffeine tightens and firms your skin, helping erase puffiness and wake up your entire eye area. Caffeine is also a powerful antioxidant and helps soothe irritated skin. It’s like giving your eyes a morning shot of espresso. 

Let’s Disco

You’ve got choices in terms of skin care, but for the best available vitamin C products, Disco is your go-to. We use vegan, plant-based ingredients in our formulas and never include ingredients that are known as toxins or could cause skin irritation. 

What’s more, Disco uses sustainable ingredients and has a zero-tolerance policy for animal cruelty, which means you can keep a clear conscience while getting clear, healthy skin. It’s a win-win. 

Your doc would tell you to take your vitamins, and we’re telling you to take your vitamin C to get sexier, softer, younger-looking skin. A little vitamin C skin care a day keeps the fine lines and wrinkles...well, you know the rest.
