Our Love for Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an essential part of maintaining the skin's health. Since the body is unable to make it on its own, it's important to apply it topically. The purest and most studied form of Vitamin C is L-ascorbic acid. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from free radicals (unstable molecules). Free radicals damage your cells by creating fine lines, wrinkles, texture, dullness, and even skin cancer. When paired with sunscreen, you are protecting your skin both inside and out!
Benefits of Vitamin C:
-Softens fine lines, wrinkles, and texture
-Promotes collagen production
-Brightens overall skin tone
How to use:
-Every morning on clean skin
Vitamin C loses its antioxidant properties when exposed to heat, light, and air. Therefore, it's important to look for a reputable brand. Our absolute favorite Vitamin C serums are by Skinceuticals. They have options for all skin types; even for acne-prone skin! Skinceuticals has mastered the art of stabilizing this temperamental molecule. They make sure to have a pH lower than 3.5, pure L ascorbic acid, and a concentration between 10-20%. They also have endless clinical studies which means it works, for a fact!
