What is Vitamin C?

Vitamin C, or L-ascorbic acid, is a potent antioxidant that can be found in fruits and vegetables like citrus fruits (oranges, lemons), strawberries, kiwi, guava, bell peppers, and broccoli. Vitamin C in skincare products is typically made from ascorbic acid, which is a water-soluble form of Vitamin C.

Benefits of Vitamin C

1. Antioxidant Protection:

Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that helps shield the skin from harmful free radicals and environmental damage, reducing the risk of premature aging and skin damage.

2. Collagen Production:

Vitamin C stimulates collagen synthesis, which is crucial for maintaining skin's firmness and elasticity, helping to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

3. Brightening and Evening Skin Tone:

Vitamin C can fade dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and redness, promoting a more even complexion and a radiant, youthful glow.

How to use Vitamin C

Vitamin C is most often found in Serum and Face Mask, where you skin has time to fully absorb the ingredient. It's best if you use it in the morning, after your cleanser and toner. Don't forget to apply sunscreen even if you plan to stay inside, as Vitamin C increase your skin sensitivity to UV. No need to apply it two times a day, as it is a powerful ingredient.
