10 Things About Vitamin C & What It Can Do For Your Skin

Replenishes & Plumps Up The Epidermis

Vitamin C is found at high levels in the outermost layers of cells in the skin (epidermis).

Limits The Damage Done By UV Exposure

While Vitamin C is not a sunscreen, its antioxidant properties protects against UV induced damage caused by free radicals.

Increases Collagen Production

Besides combating photodamage, using Vitamin C in your skincare can increase collagen production and repair damaged skin.

Aids In Wound Healing

The body uses Vitamin C to replace damaged skin tissue with scar tissue, which helps wounds heal properly.

Exfoliation Enhances Vitamin C Absorption

Removal of the outermost layer of dead or peeling skin cells (stratum corneum) by laser, chemical, or mechanical methods such as exfoliation enhances absorption of Vitamin C from external sources.

Effective Topical Vitamin C Products Irritate Sensitive Skin

Studies show that L-ascorbic acid (form of Vitamin C) must be formulated at pH levels less than 3.5 to enter the skin.  This is why the ingredient can be greatly irritating to sensitive skin.

A High Dose Of Vitamin C Is NOT More Effective

Studies have shown that maximal absorption was achieved with a 20% Vitamin C solution, with higher concentrations showing lower absorption.

Effective Topical Vitamin C Products Irritate Sensitive Skin

The stability of Vitamin C in topical solutions is a concern, as exposures to air, head and/or light may slowly degrade Vitamin C.

Topical Combination Of Vitamin C + E Are More Protective

Topically applied combinations of Vitamin C and Vitamin E are more effective in preventing photodamage.

Dietary Vitamin C Reduces Dry Skin

Oran consumption of dietary Vitamin C have been correlated with a decreased risk of dry skin as compared to other forms of the vitamin.
