Vitamin C is without a doubt the holy grail your skin has been searching for. This ingredient has so many benefits, adding it to your skincare routine will be life changing. You can find this powerful ingredient in many different forms, so it’s important to know which is best to be using for your skin.
There are many different forms of this ingredient, but the two main forms are sodium ascorbyl phosphate and l ascorbic acid. The experts here at DermaBoss recommend using Sodium ascorbyl phosphate over the latter. L Ascorbic Acid is much harsher, so using the water soluble version (sodium ascorbyl phosphate) is a lot safer for your skin.
Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate is equally as effective as the other forms of vitamin C, while still safe to use on sensitive or acne-prone skin. The harsh nature of the other derivatives make it a little risky to use on sensitive skin, as they are more likely to cause a negative reaction. Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate is the most stable with a PH level most closely resembling that of our skin, allowing it to work naturally with our skin to provide all of its profound benefits.
There are many different ways you can include Vitamin C in your skincare routine. Vitamin C can be taken orally, or applied topically using a moisturizer, serum, powder, or cream. While taking Vitamin C orally has many benefits for your health and skin, if you want to maximize the benefits it has on the skin you must apply it topically.
Applying it directly to the area you are trying to improve is much more effective than taking it orally. DermaBoss experts believe a serum to be the best way to add Vitamin C to your routine. Serums are most effective, and also the easiest to add as a step to your current routine. Just add a few drops after you tone and before you moisturize and prepare for the ultimate glow up.
So, What Are The Benefits of Vitamin C Serum For Your Face?
Remember that glow up we told you to prepare for? It wasn’t just a figure of speech, Vit C will literally have your skin glowin’ up! One of our favorite benefits of Vit C Serum for your face is its ability to brighten and even your skin tone. Strong concentrations of Vit C leave the skin looking replenished and revitalized. Due to it’s ability to impede melanin production, Vit C Serum can reduce the appearance of dull skin by giving it a healthy, youthful glow.
Another great benefit provided by the ingredient’s ability to impede melanin production? When used in a serum, it will help to fade hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation is a term used to describe darker patched of the skin.
Common types of hyperpigmentation are sun spots, age spots, acne scarring, and other uneven patches on the skin. We all hate when a blemish pops up, and the last thing anyone wants is a scar to remind us it was there! Add A Vit C Serum to your skincare routine to make sure those blemishes don’t stick around after they heal.
Speaking of blemishes… They won’t stick around for quite as long (or as noticeable) when you have vitamin c in your skincare routine! Vitamin C has many healing properties, and when used on the skin it can reduce redness and inflammation. That means when a blemish inevitably pops up, having Vit C in your skincare will reduce its appearance in color and in size.
The ingredients healing ability to reduce inflammation also makes it perfect for those of us that wake up with puffy under eye circles. We can’t all get our 8 hours every single night. Whether we wake up exhausted from a long night of working or a long night out (or maybe both), under eye circles have a drastic effect on our appearance.
Sure, we can slap some concealer under our eyes, but a lot of the time concealer doesn’t completely do the trick. Plus, this is just masking the problem, not fixing it. When using Vitamin C Serum everyday, make sure you are applying it under the eye where circles would normally appear. The collagen found in Vitamin C Serum works to reduce the lines that are found under tired eyes.
Vitamin C Serum also creates brighter skin, brightening the dark, discolored area underneath the eye to diminished dark circles. In addition, by improving skin hydration, Vitamin C Serum will firm the skin around the eyes, preventing it from sagging and creating the appearance of dark circles.
To top off all of these great benefits Vit C has for your face, it also preserves the youth of your skin. As we mentioned, Vitamin C promotes collagen production, which prevents wrinkles from forming while simultaneously reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that are already there.
The essential vitamins provided to your skin by Vitamin C make certain that the skin is nourished and hydrated. When our skin is properly hydrated, it keeps the skin tighter, making it much less likely that wrinkles will form.
So, from here you’re probably wondering…
What Is The Best Vitamin C Serum?
When considering which serum to buy, there is a lot to take into account. Is it all natural? Does it use the best form of Vitamin C? Is it expensive? These are the questions we kept in mind when creating the DermaBoss Vitamin C Serum, which is why we believe you will agree it is the best option!
Our Vit C Serum contains a mixture of Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, and Beta Glucan. Like Vitamin C Serum, Hyaluronic acid moisturizes skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and has many healing properties for the skin.

This is why its best to look for a vitamin C Serum that includes Hyaluronic Acid. Another ingredient that maximizes the effects of Vitamin C is Beta Glucan. Beta Glucan promotes collagen production, skin healing, and stops premature aging, so make sure you are looking for this ingredient in your Vitamin C Serum as well!
