VITAMIN C

published 01 february 2024

Starting at a young age, we're taught about getting a daily dose of Vitamin C boosts the immune systems and contributes to overall health. But how can Vitamin C contribute to healthy skin? This natural, water-soluble nutrient is a powerful antioxidant, and is a piece to the puzzle of maintaining clear, balanced, radiant skin. In this article, we will walk through benefits of topical Vitamin C, and how to incorporate this superstar ingredient into your skin care routine.

BENEFITS OF VITAMIN C

1
Complexion CorrectiON
Vitamin C helps fade dark spots and hyperpigmentation by limiting the enzymes that contribute to excess melanin production. Vitamin C can also help brighten the skin, making way for an even, radiant complexion.

2

Collagen BOOSTING

Vitamin C has been shown to help stimulate collagen production. This works to plump and smooth the skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles over time and promoting a more youthful appearance.

3

SKIN REPAIR

Vitamin C is an all-star source of antioxidants, which have anti-inflammatory properties, and help reduce skin irritation and redness. It also promotes skin healing and repair, encouraging calm, happy, healthy skin.

4

HYDRATION

Vitamin C is known to helps prevent transepidermal water loss from the skin barrier. This works to keep things hydrated, with better skin outcomes when it comes to dryness, acne, and texture.

5

ProtectiON

Scientific studies have suggested that Vitamin C can help protect the skin barrier against UV damage (and helping your sunscreen work overtime), free radicals, and other environmental stressors.

introducing VITAMIN C to your routine

1

pick the right vitamin c

Not all Vitamin C products are created equal.

Go for stabilized forms like our preferred Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (THD) — which we use in our
No. 1 Serum, and is known to more stable, less irritating, and 50x more effective than L-abscorbic acid (which is a popular option).

And as for concentration, 10-20% is generally recommended for effective results without irritation. For sensitive skin, start with a low concentration and slowly increase over time.

2

PROPERLY ADD TO YOUR ROUTINE

Vitamin C plays well with most skincare ingredients, but must be applied before heavier creams and oils. We recommend this sequence: cleanser, toner (Amniotic Toner), Vitamin C (No. 1 Serum), moisturizer (Face Oil or Cream), and sunscreen.

Many prefer to apply Vitamin C in the morning for sunscreen support and environmental protection.

3

CONSISTENCY IS KEY

For maximum benefits and optimal results, remember to use Vitamin C regularly as a part of your daily skin care routine.
From its balancing and brightening properties, to its role in collagen synthesis and its rich source of antioxidants, Vitamin C stands as a skin care superhero, helping transform the complexion and protect the skin barrier.

And as you navigate the world of Vitamin C, look no further than our No. 1 Serum. Its advanced formulation contains Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (THD), along with the hydrating magic of Hyaluronic Acid and a touch of ferments. The No. 1 Serum is a Vitamin C powerhouse designed to be the No. 1 product in your skin care regimen.
