At Skin and Shape Clinic in Mumbai, Dr. Anju Mehtil, one of the best dermatologist in Andheri, Mumbai explains the benefits of incorporating Vitamin C in your daily skin regime.
Vitamin C is an excellent molecule that offers many benefits for your skin. Some of them are:
When choosing a Vitamin C product, it’s important to consider which form of Vitamin C is present in your serums or products.
It’s important to check the percentage of Vitamin C in a product. Vitamin C works best in 10-20%. More than 20% is not really beneficial, and if the percentage is lesser, it might be irritating. However, with newer products, even lesser forms can become more potent because of advanced manufacturing technology.
Vitamin C can be combined with other products like AHA, BHA, Vitamin E, Niacinamide, and C-Weeds for a more beneficial effect.
Vitamin C is available in various forms, including serum, powder, encapsulated, and anhydrous forms. The most commonly available form is serum, but the powder form maintains potency, and certain products combine it with serum to get activated. The anhydrous form is available where Vitamin C is present in small beads and gets activated when applied to the skin.
The pH to be maintained for Vitamin C is around 2.5 to 3.5. However, with newer products, in spite of the pH being higher, maybe around 4 to 4.4 to 6, because it’s combined with other elements, the potency is still maintained.
