We all know vitamin C is essential to our health, but did you know it’s important for our skin too? It’s a crucial part of any skincare routine because of one thing: Free radicals.

Free radicals are what is causing damage to your cells by disrupting them and are directly responsible for the appearance of signs of aging and dull complexion. To put it simply, if you can eliminate the damage free radicals have on your skin, you’ll be able to manage signs of aging easily.

What causes free radicals to be produced?

There’s no way we can avoid the creation of free radicals in our cells, because of our urban lifestyle. They are usually accelerated by environmental aggressors like pollution, cigarette smoke, and radiation.

The key to fighting free radicals: Vitamin C

Metabolism naturally gives rise to free radicals, and our body’s immune system can fight some of them. However, when accelerated by environmental aggressors, free radical production can become excessive. What’s worse, free radical damage accumulates with age and cause more harm on us over time.

Antioxidants neutralises free radicals and stop them from disrupting our cells.

The most effective and well-known antioxidant is probably vitamin C. It has been studied and proven to combat free radical production and formation, especially those that are caused by pollution and cigarette smoke. It is also renowned for its ability to shield the skin from damage induced by UV rays, which is the main cause of premature skin ageing.

What else does vitamin C do for your skin?

Besides neutralising free radicals, vitamin C also reduces the appearance of pigmentation, boosts production of collagen production, reduces inflammation and irritation, and improves skin’s natural healing ability.

Are you receiving enough vitamin C?

You may be consuming fruits and vegetables, or even multivitamins to load up on your vitamin C intake. This is definitely a good start. However, the goodness of vitamin C is first allocated to the benefit of your vital organs, and typically the normal diet doesn’t give you sufficient vitamin C to supply to your skin cells to help it combat the damage from free radicals.

If you are concerned about the effects of free radicals on your skin, try topical vitamin C treatments. These feed your skin directly with vitamin C, which means your skin benefits from this super-ingredient directly. However, vitamin C as a topical product can be quite unstable too, in that it sees chemical changes when exposed to sunlight. As such, topical vitamin C products are hard to store, and “expires” way too fast.


If you need a booster, go for a facial treatment that infuses your skin with vitamin C. This way, you’ll be receiving vitamin C directly in your skin, and the vitamin C that’s infused in your skin is definitely still in its freshest state, and not compromised by any external factors.

Try the Sonic C Plus Therapy by Bella Skin Care. This treatment combines generous amounts of high-grade vitamin C, coupled with the use of mild electric current, to help activate skin cell’s regeneration. The micro-vibration technology helps product to absorb more effectively, and to penetrate deeply into the skin.

Go for regular sessions of the Sonic C Plus Therapy and you’ll find that your skin’s elasticity is strengthened, and its natural defences are improved. You’ll also find that your skin looks brighter, clearer, and the appearance of signs of aging eliminated.
