  • There is No Perfect Skin Without a Daily Dose of Vitamin C

January 26, 2020

No it’s not just a trend, Vitamin C is truly one of the star vitamins for a healthy and glowing complexion. Sure you probably know all about its immunity boosting and pick me up benefits especially during that time of the year. But did you know that Vitamin C has superpowers when it comes to your skin?

It is one of the most effective antioxidants available. Antioxidants prevent and reduce the damage caused by external aggressors (such as UV and pollution) to our skin. They are essential in supporting the skin own renewal process and thus delaying premature aging. Vitamin C stimulates our skin defense mechanism and helps its natural regeneration process. When used topically it also helps stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. End result? A brighter, firmer and more plump skin. As a bonus it helps fight hyperpigmentation and reduce sun spots and acne scars.

See why you need to make this holy grail of skincare ingredients a staple in your beauty routine!

What form of Vitamin C to use on your skin?

You can find Vitamin C in skincare in different concentrations and forms: serums, creams and dry powder. They are often mixed with other ingredients as well. There are also many natural ingredients commonly used in natural skincare formulations that are a source of Vitamin C such as broccoli seed oil, citrus fruits oil, pomegranate oil, rosehip oil and others. At Lynn’s Apothecary we definitely favor a pure high grade Vitamin C in the form of a powder because Vitamin C oxidizes when it hits liquid losing its potency with time. In a powder form you get the most stable form and can maximize the results and potency from Vitamin C use. We advise you to do your research before committing to a Vitamin C as not all Vitamin C skincare products are created equally and make sure the other ingredients it is mixed with are also of high grade and suitable for your skin.

We are big fans of Agent Nateur Holi C, a Vitamin C powder with a french patented Calcium K. One bottle of Agent Nateur Holi C could formulate up to 100 bottles of common Vitamin C serum if the concentration of pure Vitamin C used is the common 1%-5%. The french patented Calcium used in this product has also added bonus for your skin: it improves skin elasticity by stimulating the production of hyaluronic acid and elastin in the dermis to prevent skin sagging and the formation of smile lines. So more plumpness and lift!

Is Vitamin C adapted to your skin type?

Usually Vitamin C is adapted for most skin types. If it is not in a pure form, you have to check what other ingredients is it mixed with and make sure the other ingredients are adapted to your skin. If you have skin sensitivities it is advisable to proceed cautiously, in small concentrations. If you have known allergies to Vitamin C you should consult with a specialist.
