The Benefits of Vitamin C For Your Skin


Jun 6, 2024
Beauty insiders and dermatologists around the world have long hailed vitamin C as a holy-grail skin care ingredient. In fact, in a 2023 Vogue* interview, top dermatologist Dr. Joshua Zeichner said “Vitamin C is the most potent topical antioxidant, it helps neutralize free radical damage and protect the skin against UV light exposure and other environmental pollutants.” Known as the gold standard in brightening, we, at Avon, are truly impressed by the wonders of vitamin C for the skin: Just check out our recent blog post outlining its glow-boosting skin care benefits.

As good as the reports may be, no ingredient is perfect, and despite its proven efficacy vitamin C is notoriously unstable. It’s a water-soluble compound that can break down easily when exposed to light, heat, air or the wrong pH level, which can easily happen during storage and transit.

When dealing with vitamin C, it's crucial to seek out the appropriate formulation from reputable manufacturers supported by scientific research, one that makes vitamin C as stable as possible while also delivering it effectively to the skin. The good news? Avon offers a juicy range of stable high-performance, vitamin C-infused formulas that are worth adding to your skin care routine.

Caring For Your Vitamin C Product
As potent and transformative as vitamin C can be, you can unintentionally diminish its efficacy without proper usage or storage. Don’t leave the cap open for too long and don’t store it in direct sunlight. Make sure you read the label and follow the usage instructions to ensure you’re helping preserve the product’s potency.

The antioxidant properties and incredible benefits of stabilized vitamin C make it an undeniable skin care staple. Without a doubt, it’s an essential step in virtually every skin care routine.
