The compound structure of molecules in skin become unstable when a healthy atom loses an electron. Unstable atoms – called free radicals – are motivated by external stressors like UV rays and pollution. Without being addressed, free radicals can cause a breakdown in skin DNA, exacerbating ageing, skin sensitivity and breakouts.
An L-ascorbic acid serum applies antioxidants to skin, which provide electrons back to atoms, neutralising free radicals and providing stability to skin chemistry. Daily use of a Vitamin C antioxidant serum will visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and restore clarity to skin.
