Vitamin C Skin Care: Serums, Creams, and Encapsulations

There are many Vitamin C skin care products that have been formulated for maximum penetration, and are useful in all skin types with the exception of skins that are sensitive. There are also Vitamin C skin care creams as well as encapsulations that may be used.

SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic is a Vitamin C skin care serum that is a revolutionary new antioxidant combination. It gives the user eight times the natural protection of the skin against photoaging by neutralizing free radicals, and helps to build collagen. It also helps in giving more antioxidant protection.

The more protection that the skin gets, the younger the user would look and the better the defense would be against environmental aging. This Vitamin C skin care serum contains fifteen percent pure L-ascorbic acid, as well as one percent alpha tocopherol and with more ferulic acid it doubles the synergistic benefits of this product.

One may use it daily by pouring four to five drops on the fingertips and applying to the face, neck and chest. It may feel like the sun damage to the skin has been stripped off, and it costs fewer than one hundred and twenty-five dollars.

Vitamin C Skin Care Creams

The Physician's Complex C-Plus Antioxidant Cream is the latest in rejuvenation of the skin technology. This unique product contains twenty percent Vitamin C and may be used after cleansing the skin by applying twice daily and costs around fifty-eight dollars.

Another Vitamin C skin care cream is the La Roche-Posay Active-C Original Formula that is useful in preventing oxidation. This product contains a special formula that has bound water to polyols, which help to limit its availability in chemical reactions of oxidative type.

The polyols help to promote the penetration of Vitamin C into the skin through the retention of water molecules within their chemical structure, and thus prevents any contribution to Vitamin C oxidation. One may apply it after thorough cleansing of the skin in the mornings and/or afternoons. This Vitamin C skin care cream costs around forty dollars, and according to users, it has proved very effective in treating their skin.

Other than Vitamin C skin care serums and creams, one may also find that they are sold in encapsulated form. Most of these products use formulae that utilize silicon bases in order to give protection to the skin from oxidation, thus ensuring that one gets optimized amounts of Vitamin C concentrations.
