Citrus fruits are a great source of Vitamin C

Vitamin C is also known to reduce the appearance of skin discolorations and inflammation, strengthen the response of the skin barrier, enhance the repair process of the skin, and help the skin to better withstand exposure to the harmful rays of the sun, whether or not it is protected by sunscreen. 

Vitamin C is a great ingredient to include in any skincare regimen, especially where the signs of aging are of a particular concern. This vitamin is available in numerous forms, with the most common being ascorbic acid.

Vitamin CThe following forms of vitamin C have been proven to be most effective and stable: ascorbic acid, L-ascorbic acid, ascorbyl palmitate, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, retinyl ascorbate, and sodium ascorbyl phosphate and tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate. Yet, despite all the marketing hype, there isn’t a single “best” form of topical vitamin C. The proven range for the effectiveness of vitamin C is generally between 0.3% and 10%.

Any anti-aging product that contains Vitamin C needs to be packaged in order to protect this antioxidant from excess exposure to air and light. Ascorbic acid and L-ascorbic acid are the most tricky to keep stable. However, even the stabilized forms of this vitamin will not remain potent in the event that they are not packaged in a manner that allows for the minimization of oxygen and light contact.
