Vitamin C is commonly found in a large number of skin care products on the market today. It is one of only a very few topical products that has reliable scientific evidence to prove its effectiveness in fighting fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C also has significant anti oxidant properties. It is also commonly found in many nutritional supplements. Some natural sources of Vitamin C are oranges, lemons, limes, cabbage, spinach and green peppers to name a few.

Product Details

Vitamin C has been used for ages in nutritional supplements and topical skin care products. The anti-aging effects of Vitamin C are what make it such a popular choice to include in skin care products. The problem with Vitamin C is that it is very unstable and the use of it in skin care products can pose potential problems if you are not careful. Vitamin C oxidizes when it is exposed to air which can make it ineffective and possibly even dangerous. The formation of free radicals is increased when Vitamin C is oxidized. Vitamin C can be stabilized which will slow the oxidization process. However, oxidization will still occur. Some companies offer products containing stabilized Vitamin C but they are usually rather expensive. Since Vitamin C in its stabilized form offers many skin care benefits it is a popular choice for individuals wishing to decrease fine lines and wrinkles and slow the aging process. One sure way to receive the numerous benefits of using Vitamin C as a topical skin care product is to make your own Vitamin C serum. You can find guides online to help you with this which provide low cost and relatively easy to follow directions. The do it yourself Vitamin C will be highly potent so if you have worries of this irritating your skin or you simply do not want to deal with making it yourself, a Vitamin C derivative is another alternative to consider. A good Vitamin C derivative will release L-ascorbic acid in large enough amounts to increase collagen and will easily penetrate the skin cells to do so. It should also cause less irritation that Vitamin C and have more stability. Two compounds that are already on the skin care market are ascorbyl palmitate and magnesium ascorbyl.

The Good

  • Vitamin C is all natural.
  • Vitamin C skin care products can be purchased just about anyway and even made at home.
  • Vitamin C in its stabilized form is proven safe and effective.

The Bad

  • When Vitamin C becomes unstable it can pose potential problems in regards to skin care.
  • Vitamin C seems to be better suited as a nutrition supplement than for skin care.

The Bottom Line

Vitamin C is a widely recognized all natural nutrition source. It is found in many fruits and vegetables and has numerous health benefits. Vitamin C in skin care products can help eliminate fine lines and wrinkles if used properly. The drawback to Vitamin C in skin care is that it can easily become unstable and end up causing more problems than benefits.
