Vitamin C




SKIN TALK: Vitamin C Notes by Fatma Shaheen.

"The one ingredient your skin absolutely must have is vitamin C.  Skin fibroblasts rely on vitamin C for collagen synthesis and regulation. If you want a glow, have even skin texture, tighter skin then its a must. Use daily 365 days of the year".


What is Vitamin C


Vitamin C is ascorbic acid, ascorbate, a low molecular carbohydrate. 


Why do I need vitamin C?


You need Vitamin C to produce collagen & elastin. Vitamin C promotes 

keratinocytes and melanin synthesis providing antioxidant protection 

against UV induced photo damage. Vitamin C is essential for the formation 

of the skin barrier and collagen, the modulation of cell signal pathways.


Types of vitamin C

Ascorbic acid, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, sodium ascorbyl phosphate



Benefits of using vitamin C on skin


Brightening, reduces hyperpigmentation, reduces dark circles, reduces acne-scarring, stimulates collagen, 

protects against photo-damage/UV rays, heals inflammation, improves lines and wrinkles.


Side-effects of using vitamin C


A quality Vitamin C should be slightly low in PH for best results as this could irritate your skin.

You should always apply a hyaluronic acid based serum after vitamin C application 

to protect your acid mantle and reduce any potential side effects.


Which products can I combine with my vitamin C?


Vitamin A, Retinol based products are great to use at night and Vitamin C in the morning. 


Can I use vitamin C at night?


Vitamin C should be use in the morning after your cleanser. It's designed to help defend your skin 

against photo-damage. If you have hyperpigmentation you could also use at night. 

I prefer retinol or other actives at night and a cream or balm to support your skin's barrier.


When should I start using 

vitamin C?


16 is a good age to start ( you can start even younger) it's important to protect your 

skin for optimum skin health.
