Ask An Expert: More On Vitamin C
By Anna K. Fryxell |
We loved the responses we got from our video about the benefits of vitamin C with celebrity esthetician, Gina Marí. Since so many of you still had questions about this miracle ingredient, we decided to bring her back for our weekly “Ask An Expert” post so that you, our readers, can get the beauty information that you need.
On our website, Dorothy asks, “Can you post the name of the fat soluble vitamin C that you love?”
Mari says, “My favorite product out there right now is Ayur-Medic's Hi-Potent-C Serum! It's amazing!”
Another reader asks, “Who carries the best most potent vitamin C product for aging skin? To prevent and repair aging skin?” It turns out that it isn't about the potency of the vitamin C, Mari says that it's the form of it that is used in your skincare products that counts. “You want to be looking for Ascorbyl palmitate,” says Mari. “However it is very uncommon. Most products out there use L-ascorbic acid in a high percentage because it tends to be very cost effective in production.”
So there you have it. Keep asking those questions, and we'll keep getting you answers.
