L-ascorbic acid is the name of the chemical structure for vitamin C, the same vitamin C you find in citrus, bell peppers, strawberries, and other fruits and vegetables. Vitamin C is essential to proper nutrition and does more than boost your immune system. It is an antioxidant that will help protect the skin to reduce damage caused by sun exposure and other environmental factors that lead to signs of aging. Using vitamin C topically can also assist in the production of collagen to reduce wrinkles and fine lines by restoring elasticity and firmness lost with aging.
Vitamin C in skincare is an effective ingredient that complement other high-performance ingredients to help rejuvenate and improve the appearance of skin, which is easily damaged by environmental aggressors. Topical Vitamin C can be used with oily, normal, dry, and sensitive skin. A few drops of L-ascorbic acid can be applied in the morning daily for optimal results.
