Beauty ABC's : A = Ascorbic Acid

Vert Beauty Blog - Ascorbic Acid

It’s always important to know what goes into your beauty products. But sometimes the big ol’ science-y names don’t translate. For example, do you know what Ascorbic Acid is? The name may sound scary to some, but it is actually one of the best anti-aging, skin-protecting antioxidants on the planet. Yep, Ascorbic Acid is also known as: 

Vitamin C

This acid, sometimes cited as L-Ascorbic Acid is a form of Vitamin C that provides some major skin benefits like:

  • Brighter skin (goodbye sun damage and dark spots)
  • Firms skin by boosting Collagen (hello supermodel)
  • Boosts your healing response (so long acne scars)

But most importantly, Vitamin C rich products can boost the effectiveness of your SPF! Vitamin C and Sunscreen would be the equivalent to Dorothy and Toto… Best. Friends.Forever! Check out our favorite Vitamin C serums from One Love Organics and John Masters Organics. Vitamin C should be a part of your AM routine. Wear it under your SPF and reap the benefits! Now you know :)
