Vitamin C

We know that vitamin C boosts the immune system. However, this vitamin is also an important ingredient in many skincare products. It provides a beautiful glow and boosts collagen production in the skin. Here are some tips on how you can add vitamin C into your skincare routine.

Ascorbic acid belongs to the chemical group of water-soluble vitamins and describes the purest form of vitamin C. In the human body, it is involved in many physiological functions that are essential for life. Since your body can’t store vitamin C, an adequate and regular vitamin C intake is necessary to prevent vitamin C deficiency. A balanced, healthy diet with fresh fruits and vegetables is, of course, vital. Which foods are the best sources of vitamin C? Vegetables such as bell peppers, broccoli and kale are healthy sources of vitamin C. Blackcurrants, kiwi and lemons are also among the vitamin C-rich foods.

The use of pure ascorbic acid, as we know it from the food industry, is only possible to a limited extent, if at all, in cosmetics. The reason is quite simple. Pure ascorbic acid is very unstable and decomposes when it comes into contact with light or oxygen. The solution is using a vitamin C derivative, i.e. a slightly modified chemical form. Vitamin derivatives are much more stable, can be better absorbed and are thus gentler on the skin. Ethyl ascorbic acid is one of the comparable and most effective derivatives.

Benefits:

1. Vitamin C brightens dark spots. It inhibits the tyrosinase enzyme and thus prevents excessive and irregular production of the skin pigment melanin.

2. Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant. It neutralizes free radicals and protects the skin from oxidative stress. Thanks to its antioxidant properties, it protects the cells and helps prevent premature skin aging and sun damage (caused by UV rays).

3. Vitamin C boosts collagen production in the skin while at the same time inhibiting the age-related breakdown of this important structural protein. This is the key to improving skin elasticity in the long term.

4. Vitamin C-containing products give the skin an intense glow and restore the radiance of dull and tired skin.

How to use

  • You can use vitamin C serums or moisturizers daily.
  • Please note: Vitamin C has a herbaceous, spicy odor of its own. So don’t be put off when you open or use a product for the first time.
  • Vitamin C should not be used together with niacinamide (vitamin B3), azelaic acid or chemical peels (AHA, BHA, PHA). However, if you allow an adequate amount of time in between, these combinations of active ingredients can achieve great results.
