Vitamin C (abscorbic acid)

This ingredient is a real gift for the skin. Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant, helps with the lightening of dark spots and skin and induces in the upper layers of the skin the synthesis of collagen. The skin thus receives a boost.

What's Vitamin C?

Vitamin C is essential for humans. This ingredient is found in some fruits and vegetables. Depending on the product where the vitamin C is found, it will have to be modified to prevent oxidation and color change of the product. The vitamin C will then become stabilized and encapsulated. The modified ingredient improves the diffusion of the product, mainly in skin care products, into the upper layers of the skin which minimizes wrinkles and fine lines and reduces spots.

The benefits of Vitamin C

If we focus on stabilized and encapsulated vitamin C, skin care products benefit from using this ingredient. Indeed, the product: - Illuminates the skin - Counteracts the aging effect - Evens out the complexion - Restores the suppleness of the skin - Etc.

How to use Vitamin C?

In skin care, the dosage has to be perfect. So it's important to use a trusted cosmetic line for optimal results. Otherwise, it's safe to use products with vitamin C every day.

Do alternating routines

It is proven that "cures" of this ingredient have miraculous effects. These cures can last from a few days to a few months, until the desired results are achieved. For example, if your main routine is anti-aging, a cure with a routine enriched with Vitamin C would have optimal benefits on your skin. The complementarity of the various ingredients would allow you to get an anti-aging result faster and more effective over time.

Exposure to the sun of vitamin C

The use of cream with vitamin C before prolonged exposure to the sun is not recommended. Indeed, the consequence is that the active ingredients of vitamin C can be modified with the exposure to the sun. This is why, in most cases, the bottles of Vitamin C serum are dark. It is also preferable to store your products containing vitamin C in a dark place, in a place with little or no humidity and where the temperature is basic.

Why do we need to put on sunscreen when we use cream with vitamin C in the morning?

We must not make the mistake of believing that Vitamin C causes irritation when exposed to the sun. It is the pH of products containing Vitamin C that should be checked during exposure to the sun. To counteract the irritating effect, the application of a sun cream is sufficient to protect the skin while offering the benefits of Vitamin C.
