3.Unify the tone of the skinVitamin C

You may have heard that vitamin C has depigmenting action. It is not entirely correct, the truth is that vitamin C acts to prevent the formation of melanin, the pigment responsible for the formation of spots. Therefore, if you are doing a depigmenting treatment, vitamin C will be a good complement since, while treating the spots you have, vitamin C prevents the appearance of new ones.

What presentations does vitamin C have in dermo-pharmacy?

– Serums: Pre-treatment to the cream to provide an antioxidant action to the deeper layers of the skin. You can use it both day and night.

– Creams: Perfect to bring luminosity to the skin during the day. There is a myth that creams with vitamin C can cause spots on the skin. This myth is false, but what is certain is that they can dirty the skin if a correct routine of daily hygiene and weekly exfoliation is not followed.

– Blisters: Bring light to the face and there is a wide variety, adapted to each skin type. Its formula can be supplemented with other antioxidants such as proteoglycans or vitamin E . As a shock treatment, we recommend using half an ampoule in the morning and a half at night. As a continued treatment, half a blister in the morning.

– Masks: In addition to the antioxidant action it has a peeling effect that helps to eliminate all the impurities of the face leaving the skin very soft and favoring the absorption of the treatments. We recommend using it once a week.

– Tonics and cleansers: They also have an exfoliating action that favors the natural renewal of the skin. So they are a good first step in your beauty routine with vitamin C.

And finally, a very important point that we want you to take into account is that vitamin C is photosensitive. This means that it is damaged by light (either natural or artificial). So we recommend that you keep the dermo-cosmetic products that contain it in their original packaging.
