Vitamin c for Skin Care

If you’ve shopped in the skincare aisle lately or flipped through the pages of a beauty magazine you will notice the hype on products containing Vitamin C. There are only a select few ingredients that can treat multiple skincare concerns and Vitamin C is one such example!

Vitamin C provides potent antioxidant protection and it shields skin from damaging free radicals (Free radicals are those pesky rogue molecules that promote premature aging). The most common forms of free-radical damage are environmental factors that we can’t escape that assault skin on a daily basis —such as sun damage, pollution and oxidative stress. That’s where topical Vitamin C comes in.

Well-formulated products containing Vitamin C can provide a range of benefits that keep your skin younger-looking for longer! See what Vitamin C can do below:

  • Reduce the appearance of brown spots and other types of sun damage
  • Helps boost healthy collagen production (Hello, firmer skin!)
  • Reduce inflammation and irritation, both of which cause a cascade of damage
  • Fade post-breakout red marks by improving skin’s natural healing response
  • Protects skin against UV exposure
  • Boost skin radiance and luminosity

Ascorbic Acid is by far the most potent form of Vitamin C. Also known as L-ascorbic Acid. When properly formulated, it helps create younger, firmer skin while fading out the signs of sun damage and post-acne marks.

However, for L-ascorbic acid to work its magic make sure the Vitamin C you choose is:

  1. Stabilized Vitamin C

    Remember Ascorbic acid is the most photo unstable molecule and can easily loose its properties if not mixed with the right ingredients to make it stable

  2. Backed by Nano Technology

    For any product to benefit the skin it needs to reach the right places. Deep penetrating of ingredients will result in the best anti-oxidant effect. And this is where Nano Technology comes into play. Nano Technology is the encapsulation of ingredients within tiny vesicles. These vesicles help ingredients reach even the last layer of the dermis.

  3. Both water and fat soluble

    Our cells are made up of both water and fat soluble parts. So make sure that your Vitamin C is both water and fat soluble

The Sesderma C-Vit Lyposomal Serum (available at Estheti Centre) has all the functions mentioned above. Vitamin C is a long-established skincare SUPERSTAR that can help you achieve younger, healthier and more radiant skin.
