Vitamina C

Vitamin C as a cosmetic ingredient.

There are so many treatments with so many formulas that in the end you never know for sure what your skin really needs. However, there are some products which are necessary in every facial routine and vitamin C is one of them.

Many clinical studies have analyzed the use and results of using vitamin C as a cosmetic ingredient in both the short and long term.

Currently, it is the most effective vitamin for brightening the skin and at the same time prevents the synthesis of melanin, which unifies the skin tone. This has two benefits: it lightens existing stains and prevents future stains.

Another of its great benefits is based on neutralizing free radicals while increasing elastic and hyaluronic acid levels.

Although without a doubt, our favorite benefit is that it improves barrier function while helping prevent skin cancer.

And now that we have talked about its benefits... The tips!

Combine with your vitamin C serum or cream other antioxidants such as vitamin E, niacinamide or ferulic acid.

Look for a vitamin C concentration between 8% and 15%. Less than 8% you will not see great effects and a concentration greater than 15% can be irritating to the skin. If you are one of those who have skin that is easily irritated, you are in luck! Today there are some derivatives with proven high efficacy, more stable and less irritating. Take note: Tetrahexylecyl Ascorbate or 3-0 Ethyl Ascorbic Acid.

What more arguments do you need to include an antioxidant vitamin C serum in your daily routine?
