Our three-step routine leaves the skin looking younger and rejuvenated. This regimen includes: Vitamin C Cleanser (6.7 oz) Vitamin C Serum (1 oz) Vitamin C Moisturizer (3.4)
You already know that vitamin C is good for you. Vitamin C sounds simple, but there are actually several different kinds of vitamin C to be aware of. Ascorbic Acid is the most common when it comes to skincare—it absorbs the quickest and has the highest potency when applied topically. Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (MAP) is another water-soluble derivative of vitamin C that can be effective in lower concentrations. Then there's Ester-C, a trademarked form of vitamin C that's been amped up with Calcium Ascorbate. This one comes with a lot of claims, but not a whole lot of data backing up. When in doubt, look for Ascorbic Acid. That's really the one you want.
Here is a list of things vitamin C can do for you. Besides making your skin looking brighter and glowy . But yeah, it does that, too. Boosts Collagen production
Very exciting news: Vitamin C is one of the factors in stabilizing and creating collagen molecules, meaning that it's one of the most reliable anti-aging ingredients on the market. Some research also shows that vitamin C can also increase the quality of the collagen created in the body. So while topical (and drinkable) collagen aren't necessarily doing you any good, your Amazon-sourced vitamin C serum's been pulling double duty.
Defends against free radicals
Vitamin C is an antioxidant, which is good news. To get sciencey about it, vitamin C can donate electrons in order to neutralize free radicals created in skin after oxidative stress. Oxidative stress = sun damage. So while vitamin C can't protect skin like an SPF can, it can minimize the damage you can't see.
Reduces brown spots
Because vitamin C can aid in skin's ability to heal itself, it should be your go-to when looking to reduce red and brown spots. Add to that its anti-inflammatory properties (of interest if you're struggling with acne or rosacea), and even-toned skin is in your very near future. You already knew you were preventing damage with it; but now you're also fixing it post facto.
