About L-Ascorbic Acid & Vitamin C
L-Ascorbic Acid Overview
L-ascorbic acid is more commonly known as vitamin C. Although many people know that this vitamin is vital for a healthy immune system, few realize what an important ingredient it is for healthy skin. For example, vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, which can help reverse skin damage from over exposure to the sun, and may even stimulate collagen production for tighter skin. With its many healthful benefits, l-ascorbic acid has become a common ingredient in many skin care products. While eating foods with vitamin C will help prevent general problems like scurvy, using skin care products with l-ascorbic acid helps the skin in a variety of metabolic ways.
How L-Ascorbic Acid Helps the Skin
L-ascorbic acid helps the skin in three different ways and they all have to do with the metabolism of the skin cells. The skin metabolizes by exfoliating and repairing itself as well as by rejuvenating collagen fibers, which helps create tighter skin.
L-ascorbic acid helps slow the production of melanin, which prevents dark spots on face which can be caused by pregnancy, hormonal changes from taking birth control pills, and through the natural process of aging. L-ascorbic acid may also slow the development of skin cancer because it works as an anti-oxidant and can reduce skin damage on a cellular level. Another benefit of this ingredient is that it encourages collagen development so that skin can look and feel firm, and may even get rid of wrinkles in some cases.
Improved Skin Quality with L-Ascorbic Acid
When l-ascorbic acid is applied topically on a regular basis, it can help improve skin texture and quality. The weak acid will reduce the look of wrinkles and lines, and can soothe and calm the skin after sunburn. Your skin will not only look and feel better after applying products that contain l-ascorbic acid, but you will also help your skin in the long term by fighting free radicals that damage skin cells. Vitamin C will remain in the skin for nearly 72 hours, so it is helpful to apply it each day to protect the skin and keep it looking healthy.
Needing Just the Right Acidity and Concentration
When you purchase products with l-ascorbic acid, it is best to find it processed to the right pH, ideally 3.5 or less. The acidity helps the skin better absorb the topical product, but if it is too high, it will irritate the skin. Also, keep in mind that it’s not just the pH of the acid, but the concentration of the acid in the facial cream or serum. In order to protect the skin from irritation or redness, the topical product should have no more than a 20% concentration of l-ascorbic acid.
