Wonderful vitamin C! It's immune-boosting and anti-inflammatory and is found in most fruits and vegetables and is also known by the name ascorbic acid. It's also good for the skin through skincare products boosted with this wonderful vitamin and antioxidant!It comes with a number of benefits for the skin where some of the main ones are:
- Stimulates collagen production, which is important for maintaining the skin's resilience and elasticity
- It prevents and reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Evens out the skin tone which helps to decrease hyperpigmentation and brown spots
- Evens out the skin texture which helps to decrease uneven texture and scars
- Neutralizes free radicals (e.g. exhaust gases, harmful radiation) that otherwise cause oxidative stress on the skin and cause it to age prematurely
One of the most common vitamin C products is serum - let's go through which ones we have here at GLOWiD and find the one that suits you and your skin the best! If you want to be reminded where in the routine you best use your serum you'll find our 10-step skincare guide here
Two things to remember about vitamin C serum is to store it in the dark and cool, as it is light sensitive and will lose its effectiveness over time if exposed to too much light. The second is that in the Korean skincare routine it is recommended to use it in the evening because it's an active product.
