THE POWER OF VITAMIN C
A must for our breakfasts in our childhoods now became a must in our skincare routines starting from our 20s!
Vitamin C is an excellent skin care ingredient because it is safe for all skin types and has incredible anti-aging, moisturizing and brightening benefits. Vitamin C is one of the most powerful skin care antioxidants on the market, which means it helps protect you from something called oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is one of the main culprits behind the signs of aging. Environmental stressors introduce your skin to free radicals that reduce your collagen reserves and cause dull, saggy skin. Antioxidants like vitamin C, destroys these free radicals before they can cause any damage to your skin.
You can think of antioxidants as a shield that protects from external factors such as UV rays, pollution, stress and heat. In addition to the short-term protective benefits of the vitamin C serum, you will also get the added power of a more even skin tone.
Vitamin C serum also has the ability to reduce transepidermal water loss. While you still need your usual moisturizing ingredients like ceramides and hyaluronic acid to moisturize your skin, vitamin C can help these ingredients reach their full potential. Strengthening your skin barrier with vitamin C is equivalent to keeping your skin moist and healthy, so consider your daily antioxidant application as a mini workout for your skin.
You can find vitamin C in a wide variety of skin care products, from cleansers to serums to masks. However, vitamin C is an unstable ingredient; That’s why it’s important to know what to look for when looking for a serum. Since vitamin C is sensitive to the sun, which means it can oxidize and be less effective when exposed to the sun, you should go for products in dark, non-transparent bottles. Because vitamin C alone is a compound that tends to be unstable, choosing products that offer vitamin C together with another ingredient that will stabilize it will be a safe choice. Here are our favorite vitamin C serums!
