EDUCATION SERIES VOL. 7: How Vitamin C can improve your nail health.

Vitamin C is widely used in serums and moisturizers to brighten and rejuvenate skin because it  provides an array of beneficial properties, cosmetic and otherwise. Vitamin C has a ton of benefits to the human body including increasing our absorption of iron, aiding in wound healing and repairing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth. The topical application of Vitamin C improves wrinkles, fine lines, and overall texture and appearance, making it a popular, go-to ingredient in the cosmetic industry. 

Studies have shown that when Vitamin C is topically applied with other vitamins, such as Vitamin E, it can help prevent and protect the skin from long-term sun damage and other harmful compounds or free radicals. When combined with other essential vitamins, Vitamin C can prevent dark spots, repair damaged skin, and restore skin health. 

How does Vitamin C help your nails?

When most of us think of protecting our skin, we focus on our face. But don’t forget about your hands! Our hands are often exposed to the elements; the sun, our work, and water, and are often the first victim of neglect, leaving our nail beds dry, weak, and stubby. 

Not only is Vitamin C imperative for skin health, but it is also essential for the production of collagen which is necessary for healthy nails. Collagen provides strength and protein to our skin and fingernails. Vitamin C is essential for the creation of collagen and without it, our nails are ill-fated for stubble-ville.

Succulent, Taupe Coat’s acetone free nail polish remover, includes a complex vitamin cocktail essential for nail nourishment. The vegan nail polish remover incorporates not only Vitamin C, but also Vitamins E & A to provide strength and durability to the nail bed, while effortlessly removing polish. Seriously… no wonder it’s a bestseller.
