Absorbic Acid, otherwise known as Vitamin C, is hailed as a hero ingredient in the world of skincare. With growing recognition for its numerous benefits, it’s no wonder this powerful antioxidant is fast becoming a firm favourite in skincare regimens. Whilst you can introduce this key ingredient into your daily practice in a variety of forms, we’re here to tell you all about the powdered Vitamin C AKA L-Absorbic Acid from Fresh Face Skin.
What is Absorbic Acid (Vitamin C Powder)?
Before we get into the nitty gritty of things, let’s get down to the basics of Vitamin C powder.
Absorbic Acid is a highly concentrated form of Vitamin C. With similar properties to those that you would find in a retinol, Vitamin C promotes benefits such as brightening of the skin and prevention of premature ageing, in a gentler form.
It comes in a fine, white powder that can easily be incorporated into your skincare routine. Vitamin C powder is water-soluble, meaning that it dissolves quickly in liquids, making it ideal for topical application and an easy application.
What are the Benefits of Absorbic Acid for your Skin?
1. Brightens the Complexion
One of the most sought-after benefits of Vitamin C powder is its ability to brighten the complexion. Vitamin C works by inhibiting the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for dark spots and uneven skin tone. Regular use of our L-Absorbic Acid and Vitamin C Powder can help fade existing dark spots and prevent the formation of new ones, resulting in a more radiant and even skin tone. Say “hello” to that glowy complexion you’ve been searching for!
2. Stimulates Collagen Production
Collagen is a protein that gives our skin its structure and elasticity. As we age, collagen production naturally declines, leading to the formation of wrinkles and sagging skin. Vitamin C powder plays a crucial role in stimulating collagen production, helping to maintain the skin's firmness and elasticity. By incorporating Absorbic Acid into your skincare routine, you can promote a more youthful and plump complexion. And, who doesn’t want that?
3. Evens Out Skin Texture
Vitamin C powder can also improve the texture of the skin. It helps to exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin cells, revealing a smoother and more refined complexion. Helping you to battle pigmentation and uneven skin tone. With regular use, Vitamin C powder can help to minimise the appearance of pores, fine lines, and rough skin texture, resulting in a smoother and more youthful-looking complexion.
How to Use Vitamin C Powder in Your Skincare Routine
So, now you know exactly why you should be using Absorbic Acid, I’m sure you want to know how to start implementing it ASAP.
1. Mix with a Serum or Moisturiser
One of the easiest ways to incorporate Vitamin C powder into your skincare routine is by mixing it with a serum or moisturiser. We recommend combining a little of the L-Absorbic Acid and Vitamin C Powder in with our Fresh Face Skin Reverser or Healer Treatments once a day, in the morning for added support and protection against environmental factors!
Simply mix the powder thoroughly with your chosen product and apply it to your face and neck, focusing on areas of concern such as dark spots or uneven skin tone. Be sure to follow up with sunscreen during the day, as Vitamin C can increase the skin's sensitivity to the sun, due to its ability to increase skin cell turnover.
Vitamin C powder is a powerhouse ingredient that can transform your skincare routine, something that Amelia Goff, founder of Fresh Face Skin, has tried and tested, herself. Its ability to brighten the complexion, stimulate collagen production, and protect against environmental damage makes it a valuable addition to any skincare regimen. If you’re looking to achieve a more radiant, even-toned, fresh-faced complexion - this product is just the ticket to achieving your goal. So why wait? Embrace the power of Vitamin C powder and reveal the full potential of your skin today!
