Ahead, we share everything you need to know about this new product, including why it deserves a spot in your anti-aging skin care routine ASAP!
The Skin Care Benefits of Vitamin C
As mentioned, vitamin C is an antioxidant, and antioxidants help protect the skin by neutralizing free radicals. As a reminder, free radicals are unstable and highly destructive molecules that can bind to the skin and weaken the barrier and leave it vulnerable to premature aging, which can manifest as wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, uneven texture and more. Since free radicals can be induced by the environment, protecting your skin daily with a topical antioxidant like vitamin C is of utmost importance.
There are moisturizers, gels, serums and more formulated with vitamin C, but not surprisingly some formulations are better than others. “A vitamin C serum will be most effective in delivering to the cellular level,” board-certified dermatologist, and Skincare.com consultant, Dr. Dendy Engelman says. “Serums have the highest concentration of active ingredients, and they have smaller molecules which allows actives to penetrate further.”
When choosing a vitamin C serum, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, make sure the serum isn’t too large since vitamin C is known to destabilize when it comes into contact with the air. This makes the serum less effective, and the last thing you want is to invest in a large vitamin C serum that doesn’t work as well as it should. To help keep your vitamin C serum in its best form, make sure to close the cap tightly after each use and keep the bottle stored in a dark place away from natural light.
