Did you know that Vitamin C packs a powerful antioxidant punch for your skin? When applied topically in the form of L-ascorbic acid (the only form of Vitamin C that your skin can fully absorb) Vitamin C serum is accompanied by a bevy of beauty benefits.
Vitamin C serum can help to fight off those nasty free radicals that contribute to premature aging. It helps to tighten & brighten skin tone, lighten hyper-pigmentation and discoloration, and inhibit melanin production. This serum also restores moisture balance to the skin and boosts collagen synthesis which firms the skin and assists in the prevention of fine lines and wrinkles. Protection against both UVA and UVB rays are another benefit of this remarkable vitamin.
There are a number of topical Vitamin C products on the market. We love Obagi Professional-C Serum as it is proven to have superior absorption into the epidermis and dermis. Whichever product you end up choosing, make sure that the main ingredient is L-ascorbic acid so that your skin can actually absorb the product and soak up all of those beautiful benefits.
