​ All About Vitamin C

Dec 21st 2017

When it comes to vitamins in skincare, vitamin C is one of the power players. This multifunctional vitamin does everything from clearing up acne and reversing sun damage, to restoring suppleness and fading dark spots on the skin. Having a vitamin C product in your skincare routine is one of the best ways to noticeably improve your skin’s texture and appearance.

Vitamin C can help to fade existing sun damage as well as prevent further dark spot formation. As a potent antioxidant, it is able to prevent cell damage by free radicals that contribute to dark spots and skin aging. It also prevents the formation of pigmented spots by inhibiting the process of melanin production.

If you want to even out and brighten your complexion, fade melasma or sun spots, smooth out fine lines, and have that lit-from-within glow, you should definitely incorporate vitamin C into your skincare routine.

The most common form of vitamin C is ascorbic acid. Unfortunately, ascorbic acid is notoriously unstable, and needs to be formulated in an acidic solution that can be irritating to some skin types. At Janssen Cosmetics, our vitamin C products come in a stabilized form of vitamin C phosphate that ensures that it will be gentle, but effective on the skin. And because of the gentle, stable formulas, our vitamin C products have a long shelf life.

It’s important to remember that using an effective broad-spectrum sunscreen, like our Face Guard Plus SPF30, is essential for protecting your skin when using skin brightening products.

Some of the Janssen Cosmetics vitamin C products we recommend include:

2-Phase Melafadin Concentrate

The 2-Phase Melafadin Concentrate is a 6-week course of treatment ampoules, and is ideal for jump-starting or intensifying your treatment, whether your goal is to fade dark spots or stimulate collagen production in your skin. The potent components in each ampoule are stored in separate compartments and are mixed together weekly to ensure the freshest, most effective vitamin C skincare product.

VitaForce C Skin Complex

The VitaForce C Skin Complex is a daily vitamin C serum that can easily be added to your skincare routine. Containing a gentle, stable form of vitamin C, as well as hyaluronic acid, a powerful humectant, this vitamin C serum moisturizes and brightens at the same time.

VitaForce C Cream

Used ideally in conjunction with the VitaForce C Skin Complex, the VitaForce C Cream moisturizes, softens, and protects skin while brightening with gentle vitamin C phosphate. Hyaluronic acid hydrates the skin while lemon extract also brightens with natural vitamin C compounds.

Collagen Mask Vitamin C

Our Dermafleece collagen Vitamin C mask can be placed over the entire face for a more intense vitamin C treatment. The fabric of the mask puts the vitamin C phosphate essence in contact with your skin for 20-30 minutes without evaporating, so your skin is able to absorb more of the brightening antioxidants.

Vitamin C is a natural and gentle way to fade discolorations and brighten the skin, and with our stabilized form of vitamin C, even the most sensitive skins can benefit from Janssen Cosmetics vitamin C skincare products.
