what is vitamin C serum?

Jul 1, 2023

Ever wondered why you need vitamin C in your skincare routine? Well, it's the secret ingredient that keeps your complexion smooth, even, and glowy. But what exactly is it?

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid and L-ascorbic acid, is like an antioxidant superhero for your body! Our bodies don't produce Vitamin C naturally, but we can benefit from it when we consume foods rich in this essential nutrient. Incorporating Vitamin C into your skincare routine can aid in tissue repair, enhance the immune system, and shield against environmental free radicals.

What are vitamin C’s benefits for skin?

Pretty much…. everything. My favorite thing about vitamin C is that it’s a powerful antioxidant. Have you ever seen an Apple turn brown after sitting for a while? That process you’re watching is oxidation- free radical damage caused by UV exposure. This same unfortunate process affects our skin, leading to aging. Vitamin C is an ANTIoxidant that helps to prevent and repair this free radical damage leading to healthier skin. 

Vitamin C in your skincare boosts collagen production for softer fine lines, wrinkles, and reduced signs of aging.

How to use it-

In my experience and research Vitamin C in your skincare works best in a serum form since serums can penetrate the skin deeper than other products. Vitamin C works great as a daytime product so we recommend applying in the morning. Cleanse, tone, vitamin C, moisturize and then sunscreen. This is a great routine to start your day with!
