Vitamin C is one of the most powerful ingredients for your skin, along with retinoids. Both are known to help in the fight of fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, dark spots and uneven skin tone.

1.Skin care

From those who are starting to see the first signs of ageing in their early 20s to more mature skin types with or without the visible effects of sun damage, everyone can benefit from adding a vitamin C serum to their daily skin care routine.

2.Powerful antioxidant

It’s pretty unique in the fact that it works on so many different fronts! Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that protects cells from free radical damage caused by the sun and pollution. Besides, Vitamin C is also an effective skin-lightening agent: it helps with pigmentation issues and uneven skin tone.

This happens through inhibiting tyrosinase, the enzyme that causes the conversion of tyrosine into melanin. It stimulates collagen production which is a major ingredient of the scaffolding network that keeps our skin nicely firm and plump.


Vitamin C has an excellent safety profile and suits any skin types. When I am saying all skin types, I really mean all skin types. Young and mature skin. Sun-damaged skin and amazingly preserved skin. Fair skin and dark skin. Dry skin and oily skin. Blemish-prone and sensitive skin. The most powerful form of Vitamin C is L-ascorbic acid as it is the active form.

A note for those with sensitive skin who are worried about adding a new product to your routine, the advantage of choosing a vitamin C derivative such as ascorbyl glucoside is that they are less irritating compared to the more potent L-ascorbic acid. Not all Vitamin C is equal. Always listen to your skin and choose the right vitamin C for your own skin. Choose one your skin (and your wallet) can handle!
