What Does Vitamin C Do for Your Skin?

Did you know pigmentation, or visible dark spots on the skin, can start as early as your 20s and can affect all skin tones – but especially melanin-rich skin?

With significant advances in skincare technology over the past several years, there are multiple clinically-proven ingredients that can effectively and reliably help brighten your complexion, and even skin tone, as well as help reduce the appearance of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) – one of the more vexing of skin conditions to treat, particularly in melanin-rich skin tones.

Among the most effective brightening actives is the gold standard Vitamin C, beloved by dermatologists and estheticians worldwide. This potent antioxidant possesses a multitude of benefits for both the skin and the body. In fact, Ascorbic Acid - Vitamin C in its purest form- is one of the most effective and versatile antioxidants found in nature.


How can you fade / reduce the appearance of dark spots and reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation (PIH) in skin of color?

Among the best treatments for fading the appearance of dark spots and addressing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, remains a potent Vitamin C serum.

Melanin-rich skin is often overlooked and brightening innovation hasn’t been deemed effective for this particular skin tone. Until recently, however, the majority of Vitamin C serums have neither been tested on nor designed with melanin-rich skin and darker skin tones in mind.

Dark spots are one of the most vexing skin concerns and particularly in melanin-rich skin tones. A well-formulated topical Vitamin C serum remains one of the most effective means of fading the appearance of dark spots for all skin types, though these formulas are not frequently tested on dark spots in darker skin tones.
