Here’s why you should use Swansi Vitamin C Serum:

1. Sun protection

Swansi Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant. This means that it reduces the damage that free radicals may otherwise inflict on the body. Free radicals are particles that cause inflammation. It also helps in:

  • reducing the release of cytokines, which are inflammatory compounds
  • reducing damage resulting from exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light
  • reducing premature cell death

2. Preventing premature aging

Swansi Vitamin C serums can help reduce premature aging by protecting the skin from the untimely skin wrinkles that sun exposure can cause. It helps reduce premature wrinkling by stimulating the growth of collagen.  Thicker, collagen-rich skin is less likely to show wrinkling than thinner skin.

3. Creating an even skin tone

Some people apply topical vitamin C to treat hyperpigmentation. These are areas of skin that appear darker than the surrounding area. Sun exposure or hormonal changes linked with aging usually cause these darker areas. Swansi Vitamin C helps reduce melanin production.

How do vitamin C serums work?

Some preparations contain ascorbic acid, which is the natural form of vitamin C. The skin absorbs ascorbic acid well, but it does not always work well when mixed with certain solutions. Ascorbyl palmitate has more stability when mixed with other solutions, but the skin absorbs it less effectively.

Most dermatologists recommend applying serums after cleansing the skin and before applying moisturizers. This allows the skin to most effectively absorb the serum.

Also, combining vitamin C with retinol has the potential to irritate the skin further. If a person uses retinol in their skin care routine, they may wish to use vitamin C serum in the morning and any products that contain retinol at night. This method maximizes the sun-protective effect of vitamin C while minimizing retinol’s potential to increase sun sensitivity.
