A powerful antioxidant that protects your skin and gives it a radiant glow
There must have been times when you have been given a slice of lemon and asked to rub it on your skin to lighten tan and fade pigmentation. Well, a good idea really since lemon is one of the most well-known sources of vitamin C.
How vitamin C helps
If you went ahead and rubbed that piece of lemon on your skin then all you were doing was trying to get some vitamin C into your skin – a powerful antioxidant that prevents melanin production and brightens your skin. It helps to neutralise free radicals that damage the skin cells and lead to pre-mature aging of skin. Vitamin C also helps to fight the UV rays and keeps your skin safe.
Why we need stabilised vitamin C
While, it is an established fact that did you know that vitamin C in its original form is unstable and its skin benefits are minimal when used directly. So the scientists at the beauty labs have stabilised vitamin C also known as ascorbic acid or activated Vitamin C. It is today considered one of the best natural antioxidants that clears and brightens the skin by repairing cellular damage. Pure vitamin C has been clinically proven to improve overall skin texture, tone and radiance. Easily absorbed, it helps in stimulating collagen production for a healthier-looking skin. It slows hyperactive melanocytes from gathering under the skin to prevent the formation of dark spots.
The benefits of stabilised vitamin C
Scientists say that stabilised C acts faster than regular ascorbic acid, since it’s a smaller molecule and seeps into the melanin under the skin easily — resulting in increased effectiveness. Activated C is highly stable and will remain potent throughout the shelf life of the product without undergoing oxidation. In fact the activated C in today’s creams can be used in a more targeted manner and can be directly applied on the problem points to see almost instant results. This is especially true in the case of dark spots and wrinkles.
In fact many consider activated Vitamin C better than retinoids, because unlike retinoids, Vitamin C does not make the skin sensitive to the sun. You can actually wear a vitamin C based product when going out in the sun. Without harming the top layer of the skin, activated C can fade dark spots, acne scarring, and discolorations. It brings out a natural glow.
