What is the best vitamin C?

Friend, who doesn't love vitamin C? It is the antioxidant par excellence and one of the most famous and demanded ingredients in this wonderful world of cosmetics. Okay, let's start at the beginning. What is an antioxidant? "An antioxidant is a substance that prevents the oxidation of another molecule." In short, they are ingredients that help counteract environmental damage that affects our skin.

Benefits of vitamin C

Among the benefits of Vitamin C we find its ability to enhance the production of collagen in our skin, which helps it remain elastic and firm, thus preventing premature aging of our beloved face (and neck and neckline). Ah! and also improves the skin's barrier function.

In addition, it is considered a depigmenting ingredient, so it improves the appearance of spots, blurring them and giving our skin a more uniform tone.

It is an incredible ingredient for the skin when it is exposed to the sun (not directly, as you already know that at facegloss we do not abuse the sun), since in addition to its antioxidant properties it has anti-inflammatory properties and enhances sun protection. And no friend, that doesn't mean it's an SPF. You have to use a sunscreen no matter what, but Vitamin C helps. In fact, if you use both, you are doing very well.

The best version of vitamin C

EYE!!! There is something you should know about pure Vitamin C. Despite all its benefits, ascorbic acid (or vitamin C) is very unstable, is easily oxidized by contact with air, heat and light and requires a very acidic pH. All of this causes cosmetics that contain it to be more vulnerable to oxidation and can irritate our skin in high concentrations... And you will wonder, How do we get effective and non-irritating Vitamin C?

Well, with more stable forms of Vitamin C such as Ascorbyl glucoside. In fact, it is considered the most stable form of Vitamin C and at facegloss we love it!!! It doesn't irritate at all and works wonders as an antioxidant. Our beloved Ascorbyl Glucoside, when it comes into contact with our skin, penetrates the dermal layer and once inside it becomes ascorbic acid, so we obtain the same benefits as pure vitamin C without its drawbacks and sensitive skin can use it! We love!!!!!

In addition, since it is so stable to oxidation, it can be used during the day without any problem. And now comes the million-dollar question: Where do we find this wonder of an antioxidant? Friend, well in our Super Glow Serum. Did you doubt it?

Super Glow serum : an antioxidant bomb

Our SUPERGLOW serum is perfect for a daytime routine. You already know that during the day, the skin must be protected. Therefore, we need products with an antioxidant effect that will reinforce it. Well, as we have told you, Superglow combines Vitamin C in its most stable form, (Ascorbyl Glucoside), vitamin E, hyaluronic acid of different molecular weights and two different types of peptides to, in addition to protecting it, improve the appearance of the stains and leave the skin juicy and very glowy. It is the boost of light that we all need!!!!

On the other hand, remember that vitamin E helps prevent damage to the skin caused by free radicals. Additionally, it can also have an anti-inflammatory and calming effect on the skin. If we combine it with Vitamin C we maximize the benefits of both ingredients and the formation of collagen is stimulated to a greater extent. Boom!!!! Could there be anything more perfect, friend?

Plus, you'll see results right away. One week after starting to use your Superglow Serum , your skin will feel more hydrated and much brighter. After four weeks, you will begin to see how the skin tone evens out, the light will be more noticeable and the skin will be firmer and softer.

On the other hand, if you are wondering if it is suitable for your skin type, you should know that Superglow is indicated for all skin types: oily skin, combination skin and dry skin. In addition, it is a product suitable for sensitive skin and skin prone to imperfections.

Anyway, friend, it is a wonderful antioxidant and a must in your routine. Try it and tell us if you fell in love with it like we did.
