Are you already familiar with the miraculous effect of vitamin C? Skin therapists and beauty connoisseurs swear by vitamin C, as it boosts collagen production and helps reduce signs of skin aging. In addition, the vitamin can help protect the skin against future skin aging. Enough reasons to add vitamin C to your skincare routine! The Van Rosmalenkliniek tells you more about the effect of this powerful vitamin in this blog.

What is Vitamin C?

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and one of the best anti-aging ingredients. The human body does not make vitamin C itself, but you can get it from your diet. Vitamin C can be found in citrus fruits and vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower and bell peppers.
Besides the fact that vitamin C intake has many health benefits, it is a popular ingredient in skincare products. When you eat food with vitamin C, you only get a small percentage of vitamin C. Another smaller part of the vitamin C that you eat actually reaches the skin. High concentrations of vitamin C are therefore used in skincare products, which ensures that the vitamin C is well absorbed by the skin.

Scientifically proven

Vitamin C helps calm inflammation in your skin, reduce pigmentation (such as dark spots), and even boost your skin’s collagen production. And as you know, collagen keeps our skin firm and taut. Many ingredients in skincare products are said to have an effect on collagen production, but vitamin C has actually been proven to have a direct effect on collagen production.

Vitamin C serums: a strong antioxidant

If you are looking for quality skincare products with vitamin C, you will mainly find them in the form of a serum. Serums are skin care formulas, which are specifically intended for a specific skin problem. Serums are made up of smaller molecules than, for example, a cream, so that they can penetrate deeper into the skin. A serum with a high concentration (10-15%) vitamin C protects the skin against atmospheric skin aging caused by free radicals, UVA and UVB, visible light, infrared radiation and ozone pollution. Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant. An antioxidant neutralizes free radicals. Mo wrote before about free radicals and the importance of a good antioxidant. Free radicals and UV radiation cause our skin to age. By using an antioxidant, you can prevent skin aging caused by these external factors.

What else does vitamin C do for your skin?

In addition to the protective effect of this strong antioxidant, a vitamin C serum also improves the appearance of the skin. Do you suffer from uneven skin tone, rough structure, fine lines, acne scars, or dull skin? Vitamin C is a real powerhouse that can help against all these skin complaints. Fine lines fade, pigmentation spots brighten and the overall skin tone improves. Once absorbed through the skin, a vitamin C serum remains effective for at least 72 hours. With regular use of an antioxidant, it helps to firm the skin and brighten the complexion.

The benefits of vitamin C at a glance:
• Neutralizes harmful free radicals
• Stimulates collagen production
• Minimizes pigment, such as pigmentation spots on the skin
• Reduces existing signs of skin aging
• Firms the skin

Fine vitamin C serums

There are several vitamin C serums on the market. In combination with other active ingredients, there is a suitable vitamin C serum for every skin. Vitamin C is suitable for all skin types, but because of the high dose of vitamin C, it is better to build up the use of some serums slowly.
For normal or dry skin: SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic
A brand known for its quality vitamin C serums is SkinCeuticals. A popular vitamin C serum for normal and dry skin is the SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic† In addition to vitamin C, this serum contains ferulic acid, which is also a strong antioxidant. Together, the ingredients provide double protection against free radical damage.
For impure skin: SkinCeuticals Silymarin CF
Do you suffer from oily or impure skin? Then the SkinCeuticals Silymarin CF suitable. This serum helps to counteract sebum production thanks to the ingredients salicylic acid and silymarin. This serum is therefore not only an antioxidant, but also prevents impurities and an irregular skin structure.
Against pigmentation spots: SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF
For those with pigment-sensitive skin, the SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF suitable. Vitamin C reduces existing pigment in the skin and prevents the production of new pigment by external aggressors. In addition to vitamin C, the serum Phloretin CF also contains the ingredient phloretin. Phloretin also helps to fade pigment and redness caused by acne or skin aging, for example.
Keep in mind that antioxidants like vitamin C lose their effectiveness when exposed to oxygen and light. Therefore, use products that are packaged in tubes or dark bottles and avoid products in jars. This way the product keeps its optimal effect.
