This powerful vitamin has gained popularity in beauty products, due to its great ability to naturally improve the skin, fight the signs of aging and improve collagen production. You can currently get it on the market in both moisturizers and serums.

Vitamin C products contain a high concentration of this vitamin, mainly in the form of L-ascorbic acid (LAA), which can be present in serum in a concentration of 10% to 20%. Our vitamin C serum contains 20% which is why it is so effective.

L-ascorbic acid (LAA) is vitamin C in its most potent form, this is your best bet to get the desired results. You can use it on normal or oily skin. Due to its high content, it can cause irritation to some people, so it should not be used on sensitive skin.

What are the benefits of vitamin C for the skin?

1. Provides luminosity, that Super Glow that we all love.

2. Fights the damage caused by free radicals.

3. Increases collagen production and corrects the signs of premature aging.

4. Corrects spots caused by acne and hyper pigmentation.

How, when and how much should I use?

Apply the vitamin C serum every night, on a previously washed face, after applying the toner. Start using a few drops and increase according to your preference, the more you use, the longer the skin will last to absorb all the product. When you start using a vitamin C serum, finish it. Vitamin C oxidizes very easily.

Can you use Vitamin C Serum and Retinol together?

DO NOT mix vitamin C serums that contain L-ascorbic acid with retinol (vitamin A) or niacinamide (also known as vitamin B3, commonly used in skin care formulas). These ingredients do not get along with those of vitamin C, due to their PH they end up canceling each other out and leave the skin irritated, sensitive and red.

How to know if your vitamin C serum is oxidized?

If your vitamin C serum turns a dark color and smells like rust, it means that the vitamin C is oxidized, therefore you will not receive the benefits that vitamin C promises. To extend the life of the product, keep it in a cool and dark place and finish the treatment before storing the product. If you wait several months to use it again, it is probably already rusty. Also avoid getting the dropper on your skin when applying, simply pour a few drops into the palm of your hand and then apply to your face.

As with all processes and treatments, discipline and consistency in use is required to see the desired results.

In conclusion there are many reasons why we love Vitamin C in cosmetics, especially in our vitamin C serum . Dare to include this super product in your beauty ritual.
