A Summer with Vitamin C

by | Jan 16, 2022

Vitamin C is a great ingredient to look for on the beauty market if you really want a more radiant, younger-looking, out-of-this-world glowy complexion.

How does it work? Vitamin C is one of the most popular and powerful antioxidants used in the cosmetic industry. It helps boost collagen production, which is directly linked to skin elasticity and firmness. Vitamin C is also known for protecting your skin against sun damage (but of course, you also need to wear SPF), boosting the moisture level and giving you an overall brighter look.

Being the star ingredient, Vitamin C can diminish acne scars, heal blemishes, reduce the redness level in your skin and banish dark spots. Variations of this beautiful ingredient can be tracked down under many names like: L-ascorbic acid (the most stable and effective type of Vitamin C), magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, ascorbyl palmitate, sodium ascorbyl phosphate, sodium ascorbyl palmitate. My top advice would be to consider storing away from the sunlight and open air and humidity since the quality will degrade. It is best to apply the Vitamin C serum before your moisturizer, checking on the label if the product is meant for mornings (photoprotective properties) or evenings (photo-oxidative properties).

Shopping tips:

Vitamin C Serum works for any skin type. Make sure that if you war it during the day you apply a SPF on top and if you have sensitive skin, go for a product that is less likely to irritate like magnesium ascorbyl phosphate rather than L-ascorbic acid. So what are you waiting for to hop on the Vitamin C Express? Find below a choice of my top picks of products for you to try!
