Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant tool and a hot topic in most skincare circles. It’s widely regarded as an extremely effective ingredient for improving hyperpigmentation and is an anti-aging staple for many top-tier skincare routines…
What is Vitamin C?
Also known as L’ascorbic acid, vitamin C is a naturally derived antioxidant that can be useful for a wide variety of skin concerns at higher concentrations. The problem? High concentrations usually come along with product instability — due to light sensitivity and a natural insolubility with water. The A Method utilizes anhydrous, water-free formulations to ensure the stability and efficacy of its vitamin C serums, elixirs and other skincare products.
Can Vitamin C help my skin?
The short answer is…probably. Unless your blessed with balanced skin, you probably experience some form of skin concern whether it be acne, hyperpigmentation, the normal signs of aging or even more serious conditions like eczema or melanoma… Whatever the case, it’s like that your skin routine will involve some form of L’Ascorbic acid to help balance and even out your skin condition. The secret is in L’Ascorbic acid’s ability to defend against free-radical damage, and aide in your skin’s natural regeneration process. In other words — it helps keep your skin cells healthy, which in turn will lead to a better environment for balanced skin and even tone. Vitamin C can also help skin by supporting the synthesis of collagen, which may result in the appearance of younger, plumper, firmer-looking skin. One of the ways that our skin keeps itself renewed and youthful-looking is through the production of collagen. As we age, our skin naturally produces less, which can result in more advanced signs of skin aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness, sagging and more.
Can Vitamin C help my skin?
Vitamin C can come in many forms. Most effective Vitamin C products are lipid soluble, meaning they readily absorb into the skin’s lipid layer to provide antioxidant protection without breaking down. It really come down to what your goals are. The A Method offers many different delivery methods for Vitamin C including facial masks, serums, elixirs and skin brightening pads all formulated without water for maximum product stability and effectiveness.
