An L-Ascorbic Vitamin C is the freshest and most powerful C you can get in serum. When I first saw that it was only 10%, I thought it might be less effective than many of the 20% Vitamin C serums commercially available. But since it an L-Ascorbic Acid variety of vitamin C, it is a more potent antioxidant and when paired with other specific ingredients as those which are seen in this serum, and can be a far more efficient skin treatment.
An L-Ascorbic based Vitamin C serum has superior anti-oxidant properties to traditional Vitamin C serums. This makes the Lift Care Vitamin C serum especially helpful for aging and photo-damaged skin. Even if you are younger but have over-done suntanning, the L-Ascorbic in this Lift Care Serum is ideal for rejuvenating skin, fading acne scars and treating current acne breakouts.
Secondly, L-Ascorbic Acid provides soluble Vitamin C on a topical level that can be used by the skin in the production of collagen. Providing the skin with Vitamin C is especially important as skin ages and natural levels of both collagen and Vitamin C decrease, which causes sagging and wrinkles.
This is a lightweight serum that applies smoothly and dries down evenly without residue. Once the serum is dry, moisturizer, makeup, and sunscreen can be applied over the serum. I also apply it to my throat and upper chest. Skin appears dewy, not sticky.
I have a few acne scars that over time have become plum-brown marks on my cheeks. I also have a few lighter wrinkle lines along my forehead. Additionally, I have several blackheads and whiteheads around my nose and surrounding pores. These three problems both respond well to this L-Ascorbic Vitamin C serum, and the anti-oxidant properties help purge the sebum from blackheads and whiteheads, so my skin is clearer on the overall.
CONCLUSION: I like that this serum is suitable for both older and younger skin problems including sun damage, acne, scarring, brown spots, wrinkles, the need to use an anti-oxidant and increasing collagen production. Good price for a versatile, useful serum.
