Before understanding the various products through which you can incorporate these into your skincare routine, let us Vitamin C uses.

How does Vitamin C work?

There are free radicals present both inside and outside the body in the environment due to pollution, UV rays, smoke, etc. These nasty free radicals can seriously damage the skin in various ways: they can make the skin loosen its elasticity and firmness and become wrinkly with fine lines and other signs of skin ageing; they cause hyperpigmentation, dark spots, uneven skin tone, and damage the skin barrier. They make the skin look dull and tired. Vitamin C works by neutralizing these free radicals, thereby nullifying their harmful effects. Vitamin C targets signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines boosts collagen production that improves the elasticity of the skin, and makes the skin firm. It reduces skin pigmentation and dark spots and promotes even-toned skin. It aids in repairing the damaged skin barrier and maintaining overall skin health. Consistent use of Vitamin C reveals bright, healthy, and glowing skin.

But Vitamin C in itself is quite unstable and can irritate sensitive skin. To get the benefits of Vitamin C without compromising skin sensitivity, Light Up Beauty came up with its Vitamin C skincare range featuring THD Ascorbate, or the Gold Standard of Vitamin C, which is gentle and does not irritate sensitive skin. It is the premium version of Vitamin C, which is 50x more effective and penetrates 3x faster into the skin. It is the first Indian brand to come up with this variant in its skincare lineup - Blaze Vitamin C Glow serum, Prism Vitamin C Cream, and Gold Rush Vitamin C sunscreen.
