Vitamin C Skin Sensitivity


Vitamin C Skin Sensitivity

The force is with Vitamin C, but sometimes, the power is too much for the skin. It's a powerful component in skincare products when adequately formulated. It's an incredible nutrient for a healthy body and healthy skin. Vitamin C can nourish and repair skin tissue and fight premature aging.

For this reason, RxESCUESKIN serum uses the highest quality element of Vitamin C called THD, also known as "Ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate), a molecule derived from vitamin C and isopalmitic acid. (definition by Bulk Actives Ingredients for Skincare)

When Vitamin C (also known as Ascorbic acid, L-Ascorbic acid, Ascorbate) is used on the skin in its purest form, it can have some painful results. Vitamin C is highly acidic, which works great with oils. Conversely, if a product doesn't have the correct pH balance to offset the acidity, side effects can be way worse.

Please carefully read the ingredient list of any skincare products and beware of these spicy combinations. For example, if combined with retinol (Vitamin A), niacinamide (Vitamin B-3), salicylic acid, or glycolic acid because of the pH levels, it can burn your skin. Dermatologists always advise testing skincare with Vitamin C on other body parts before the face to see if there's an allergic reaction.

There are several side effects that can be caused by the vitamin.  

  1. Skin irritation, redness, puffiness, burning, itchy, sensitivity.
  2. Break out, may trigger pre-existing skin conditions or cause a rash.
  3. Sunburn and/or sun sensitivity. Since Vitamin C acts as a skin exfoliant, the skin can be prone to sun damage.

Vitamin C levels up skin health by:

  • Brightening
  • Nourishing
  • Removing top layer of dead skin cells
  • Boosting collagen
  • Softening wrinkles and fine lines
  • Helps fade skin discoloration, hyperpigmentation, and spots
  • Antioxidant
  • Sun damage protection and repair

Before using Vitamin C, it's best to ask a board-certified dermatologist about the risks. During use, please use sun protection because the benefits can be reversed by sun sensitivity. We use superior quality ingredients in our serum, including THD, the most stable and superior molecule derived from Vitamin C, where other forms tend to oxidize, losing their effectiveness.
