1. Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate

Magnesium ascorbyl phosphate (MAP) it the most stable form of Vitamin C. Works as an antioxidant - neutralizes free radicals, thus inhibiting the aging process. It works superficially, slightly exfoliates the epidermis, gently brightens and improves the skin tone (inhibits the activity of tyrosinase). It is especially suitable for sensitive skin that does not tolerate well other forms of Vitamin C. MAP is also recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women.

2. Why is Vitamin C skin care so important in your routine?

Vitamin C is known to shield the skin from harmful pollutants in the air. It’s an antioxidant, which means it limits the body’s production of free radicals. Wondering why that’s a big deal? Free radicals are unstable atoms that are usually short-lived and highly reactive. In an attempt to become more stable, they steal electrons from other atoms. The higher the number of free radicals in your body, the greater the damage to your cells. Pure Vitamin C protects collagen production that reduces wrinkles. It also offers protection from harmful UV rays.

3. Who should use products enriched with Vitamin C?

Vitamin C serum is suitable for all skin types, however, it might be more beneficial for specific skin conditions. In low concentration it is safe to use all year long - in the coldest days of winter as well as summer's hottest hours. The results you can expect vary - depending on the other ingredients it is combined with. Below you will find a list of skin concerns, which will benefit most from introducing Vitamin C in their skin routines.

Skin with discoloration

Whether your skin complexion is fair light or deep dark shade, you might face a problem of hyper pigmentation. Your skin’s color comes from melanin. When this pigment is deposited in excess in different areas of the body, dark spots develop that are significantly different from your normal skin color. This is hyperpigmentation, which is a harmless condition that affects many people. Vitamin C skin care helps to fight the visible signs of already occured discoloration. Please remember it is important to prevent this type of problem - always use appropriate sun protecion products - your skin will thank you for that!

What causes hyperpigmentation?

  • UV exposure
  • chemical peels
  • some prescription medications
  • hormonal balance
  • pregnancy
  • vitamin deficiencies
Vitamin C evens out the skin tone and brightens any discoloration. Don’t forget about including this Vitamin not only in your skincare, but in your diet as well! Brightening serum is a must for hyperpigmented skin, however, remember about a balanced diet to protect skin and maintain skin health. Your immune system can be compared to an army protecting your skin and body cells - it just needs a little help from the outside to work its best!

Mature skin

Vitamin C helps neutralize the oxidative damage that can accelerate the signs of aging. Skin's surface is a part of your body that has direct contact with environmental stressors and might be exposed to free radical damage. With the use of Vitamin C skin care, you can have faster regenerating skin cells, which gives the outside appearance of skin a more youthful appearance. Additionally, Vitamin C promotes collagen production, as collagen plays an important role in fighting off wrinkles or fine lines.

4. Combination of Vitamin C with Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid is not actually an acid, like glycolic or salicylic acid that exfoliates the skin. HA is a complex sugar, known as a polysaccharide, that occurs naturally in the body providing hydration for our joints, hair, eyes and improving the skin elasticity. Anti inflammatory properties of the hyaluronic acid help to protect our sensitive skin. Applying the combination of Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid on your skin daily, will help you neutralize free radicals from the environment and soothe acne prone skin. Antioxidants found in skin care products may help you fight with general dullness and repair your skin's surface.
