Everything You Need To Know About Vitamin C

 

Found in everything from your morning orange juice to your go-to serum, we don’t have to tell you that vitamin C is good for you. This powerhouse of an ingredient does everything from staving off scurvy for sailors in the 19th century to defending skin against free radicals. It boasts a bevy of beautiful skin benefits, so you’ll want to incorporate it into your daily regimen.

The first thing to note is that there are 3 types of vitamin C:

1. Ascorbic Acid: Most commonly found in skincare, this type of vitamin C absorbs quickly and is at its most effective when applied topically versus ingested.
2. Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (MAP): Water-soluble vitamin C derivative (dissolves in water), which is effective in lower concentrations.
3. Ester-C: Trademarked form of the vitamin infused with Calcium Ascorbate.


Vitamin C is an antioxidant, meaning it can neutralize free radicals (as mentioned above), helping to counteract sun damage and environmental stressors. It also boosts collagen production, helping with anti-aging. Vitamin C helps skin’s ability to heal itself while imparting anti-inflammatory properties, making it an excellent choice for those with acne or rosacea. Or if radiant, even-toned skin is your own #skincaregoal, vitamin C helps with that, too. No matter what your skin concern, vitamin c can help yours look better.
