First off did you know that the Human body does NOT produce vitamin C? That is why it is so very important to add Vitamin C to your beauty regiment! Topical vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, has been steadily growing in popularity in the skin care business, and for good reason. It is believed to be among the best anti-aging products on the market. Read on to learn why you should consider incorporating a topical form of vitamin C into your beauty regimen!
Vitamin C may sound simple but it’s actually one of the least stable vitamins; it’s easily destroyed when it comes in contact with light or air. This makes formulation and packaging tricky, but there are many different forms out there that try to harness all of vitamin C’s benefits. Ascorbic acid is one of the most common; it absorbs quickly and has the highest potency, but it’s also the most unstable in solution. L-Ascorbic Acid is a powder form that works great in skin care products and maintains it efficiency. Crescent Oaks Skin Care takes great pride in using all natural forms of Vitamin C found in such oils as Sea Buckthorn, Rose Hip Seed and Pomegranate seed oils. These oils all have more than enough percentage of Vitamin C to be very effective. Vitamin C helps to reduce wrinkles, creating the appearance of a brighter, more even complexion. Reducing appearance of aging, promoting timeless Natural Beauty.
So one thing to remember is "The key is not the vehicle that vitamin C comes in, but the form of vitamin C that is being applied," explains Kristina Goldenberg of Goldenberg Dermatology in New York City. The term to look for is ascorbic acid (also known as L-ascorbic acid), which is the most stable and effective form of vitamin C in skin care. That said, all three dermatologists agree that the best vitamin C skin-care product to use is Serum, because "serums are more effective than creams or toners," says Wexler. Moreover, adding vitamin E and hyaluronic acid into the mix is like a one-two-three punch of skin-saving goodness.
Serums are applied before moisturizers and creams; as in terms of consistency, it’s better to layer from thinnest to thickest (while allowing enough time for them to dry in between). After cleansing and toning your skin, vitamin C should be applied, due to its highly reactive properties. This will smooth and brighten skin. Your hyaluronic acid serum/moisturizer or cream should be applied next. It will plump up your skin and make the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines less noticeable. The final step of your skincare regime in the morning should be the application of SPF protection topically. Vitamin C and hyaluronic acid (or a product that combines both) can also be applied at night, prior to going to sleep.
