How Do Liquid Collagen and Vitamin C Work Together?
If you’ve looked into skincare ingredients that help to keep your skin youthful and firm, the chances are high that you’ve stumbled across both collagen and Vitamin C. At Revive Collagen, we are determined to teach you more about the benefits of liquid collagen and how it can help to improve the firmness and elasticity of your skin. But what about Vitamin C? And in particular, can liquid collagen and Vitamin C be used together?
What Is Vitamin C Good For?
Let’s start with the most obvious questions, which is what Vitamin C can be used for and what the benefits of this popular skincare ingredient.. Vitamin C, which can also be known as L-ascorbic acid, is an ingredient that can naturally be found in food such as citrus fruits, strawberries and white potatoes. If you don’t get enough Vitamin C, this can result in loss of firmness in your skin, as your skin needs the Vitamin to keep the skin plump. Vitamin C is a popular ingredient that is used in skincare products to boost the skin’s collagen production to increase firmness and elasticity, and help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
How is Vitamin C Different From Liquid Collagen?
You may wonder how Vitamin C is different from liquid collagen, if they both increase skin firmness and decrease signs of ageing. And also, which ingredient should you then pick? The main difference between the two ingredients is that Vitamin C can be absorbed through the skin, but collagen cannot. You’ll often see Vitamin C serums or creams that are applied to the skin on a daily basis, and show amazing results in improving skin texture. Collagen supplements, on the other hand, are often consumed as a drink, tablet or powder. This is because collagen cannot be absorbed through the skin as well. If you want to compare collagen tablets and powders to a liquid collagen supplement, it’s good to know that a collagen drink has a much higher absorption rate which makes liquid collagen around 20 times more effective.
But, does that mean you have to choose between a Vitamin C cream and a collagen supplement? No, there is in fact a way to combine the two ingredients and enjoy the benefits of both at the same time! We bet we’ve sparked your interest now, so keep reading to find out more.
