Do You Really Need To Use a Vitamin C Serum?
Vitamin C is often lauded as a miracle nutrient, and for good reason – it plays an important role in everything from supporting the immune system to promoting skin health. However, many people don’t know how the body actually uses vitamin C.
In the skin, vitamin C helps to promote collagen production and provides protection against damage from ultraviolet light. Vitamin C also plays a role in wound healing and helps to repair damaged tissue. This makes vitamin C a winner in anti-aging skin care.
What To Look For in a Vitamin C Serum?
There are many different types of vitamin C serums on the market, but not all of them are created equal. Learning about the different types of vitamin C helps tremendously. Here are a few more pointers:
1. Make sure the serum contains 10-20% vitamin C.
At least 10% vitamin C is necessary for it to be effective on our skin. But don’t be fooled by high concentrations of vitamin C, either. Serums with too much vitamin C can actually cause irritation, redness, and dryness.
2. Look for a vitamin C serum that is stabilized.
Vitamin C is a notoriously unstable ingredient, and it can quickly break down in the presence of light or air. A stabilized vitamin C serum will remain effective for longer, and will be less likely to cause irritation. Look for a serum that comes in an airtight bottle and make sure it’s stored in a cool, dark place.
3. Choose a vitamin C serum that is suitable for your skin type.
Pay attention to the other ingredients in your serum. If you have sensitive skin, look for a serum that is non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic.
