Quelle forme de vitamine C utiliser sur la peau ?

What form of vitamin C should I use on the skin?

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, has many health benefits and it is important to consume it every day through a balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables or through appropriate supplementation. Indeed, vitamin C allows the body to function and plays a role in the production of energy for example, it will also help boost the absorption of iron contained in foods for example. But do you know the effects of vitamin C on the skin?

The benefits of vitamin C for the skin

Vitamin C is an essential active ingredient in the production of collagen, a protein that helps form the skin and maintain its firmness, it also plays an important role in wound healing and tissue repair. Furthermore, this active ingredient has fantastic antioxidant properties; vitamin C helps protect the skin against damage caused by free radicals and oxidative stress. Integrating a source of vitamin C into your daily routine therefore helps boost collagen protection and prevent premature aging of the skin.

Vitamin C also plays an important role in the radiance of the complexion, if your complexion is dull, a serum enriched with vitamin C or a few drops of a vitamin C booster in your day cream will allow your skin to regain its natural shine. This active ingredient is also recommended in the fight against pigment spots by inhibiting the production of melanin.

Why do we talk about the stability of vitamin C?

If vitamin C is essential for our body and a real ally for our skin, not all forms of this active ingredient are equal. Indeed, vitamin C is a molecule sensitive to light, heat and air and its degradation can not only reduce its effectiveness but also make it potentially irritating to the skin by becoming pro-oxidant.

In order to guarantee prolonged effectiveness and better skin tolerance, many laboratories have developed formulations containing so-called “stabilized” vitamin C to guarantee prolonged effectiveness and better skin tolerance. Vitamin C derivatives, such as ascorbyl palmitate or sodium ascorbyl phosphate, are most often used in cosmetics. It is also the latter that you will find in our radiance booster concentrated in vitamin C , a few drops in your day cream will be enough to allow you to benefit from all the advantages of this super-powerful active ingredient in complete safety.
