The Story behind Vitamin C
Have you ever squeezed lemon juice over sliced apples to keep them from turning brown? That protection is what Vitamin C can do for your skin. Vitamin C is known as the “multi-tasker”. This super antioxidant preserves, tightens and brightens the skin. It should be a staple in your skin care regimen. All Vitamin C topicals are not the same. Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is delicate. If it is not formulated correctly it can oxidize and turn yellow or brown in color. When this happens, it’s not as effective. Look for clear solutions or white creams and powders, a good indication that the formula is stable and effective. Also look for concentrations of at least 10%. They offer the most benefits.
