In the autumn and winter period, vitamin C strengthens immunity and... improves the condition of the skin! Its versatile effects are used in the care of both young and mature skin. The vitamin treatment can be successfully carried out in the comfort of your home, thanks to which your skin will look young and fresh. And how does it work exactly?


Vitamin C is a popular name for ascrobic acid, which is not synthesized in our body. It is therefore important to provide it from the outside, preferably in the form of fruit and vegetables. Appropriate supplementation of this vitamin has a positive effect not only on our immune system, but also on the skin.

However, before reaching for a cosmetic containing this ingredient, you should look at its concentration. The higher the better, but it is worth remembering that products with vitamin C intended for everyday use contain from 5 to 20%. To make the transport of vitamin C deeper into the skin more effective, it is done using liposomes - ball-like structures.

Types of vitamin C in cosmetics

Even though the form ascorbic acid is the most commonly used form
in cosmetics, which at the same time penetrates the skin well and gives visible effects - it is not the only one. There are also products on the market that contain:

  • magnesium phosphate (MAP) : this is a more stable form of vitamin C than ascorbic acid. It has a more gentle effect and is used in the care of sensitive skin. At the same time, it penetrates less deeply into the skin and has a weaker antioxidant effect.
  • ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate in: it is well absorbed by the epidermis and, combined with vitamin E, prevents rapid oxidation processes
    in cells (together they are called vitamins of youth). Because it penetrates deeper layers of the skin, it is especially appreciated for its effective reduction of skin discoloration.
  • ascorbyl palmitate: like MAP, it works more gently than the pure form of vitamin C. Unfortunately, it is also poorly absorbed by the skin and does not penetrate the skin as well as other forms of this vitamin.
  • ascorbyl glucoside: it penetrates well into the skin and has high biological activity. This form of vitamin C is recommended for sensitive skin.

What effect does vitamin C have on the skin?

  1. Anti-wrinkle - slows down the breakdown of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, while providing protection against free radicals.
  2. Seals blood vessels - vitamin C not only inhibits the breakdown of collagen, but also participates in its synthesis, sealing blood vessels, preventing swelling and bruising, and reducing skin erythema.
  3. Brightens discolorations - inhibits the process of melanin synthesis and gently exfoliates, thanks to which the skin becomes uniform in color and spots and discolorations fade.
  4. Supports anti-acne treatments - thanks to their anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, cosmetics with vitamin C can complement the care of problematic skin.
  5. It acts as a natural filter against UV radiation.

How to use cosmetics with vitamin C?

It all depends on the type of cosmetic. Some of them can be included in your daily care, regardless of the time of day or year. Some products should be used as a treatment for a specific period of time and at the recommended time of day - most often as a night cosmetic.
