Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a nutrient found in citrus fruits. Vitamin C is an antioxidant proven in studies to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin.
It is used in face lotions and creams to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C is also used as a main ingredient in brightening creams and serums which are a new popular addition in the skin care market.
Vitamin C is a great ingredient in your beauty products because of its clarifying and stimulating effects on your skin. Be sure to find a product that has high enough concentration of Vitamin C to be effectively absorbed into your skin.
Here are a few items with the Vitamin C ingredient:
Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate (this has a high concentration of pure Vitamin C), Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Emulsion with Vitamin C (a rich concentration of Vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and collagen), and N.V. Perricone M.D. Vitamin C Ester Eye Area Therapy (brightens and lifts, not recommended for sensitive skin).
