Vitamin A and C aren’t just vital antioxidants for your health, these two vitamins are also powerhouse skincare ingredients that can help you achieve all your skincare goals. Touted for their ability to smooth out wrinkles, restore tired-looking skin, tackle hyperpigmentation and brighten the skin – vitamin A and C can do no wrong. But for all that, two important things need to be kept in mind when looking for vitamin A and C products to include in your skincare routine.
Both vitamin A and C come in very different forms, some more stable, some less; some more effective, others less. Ultimately, what makes vitamin A and C superstar products, comes down to these two factors: formulation and packaging. The ZO® Skin Health range only contains the very best ingredients and up to date scientific formulations that are of the highest quality and are delivered in airtight and light-blocking packaging. This guarantees that the ingredients stay stable and effective so that clients can see and feel visible results.
Vitamin A, or Retinol as it is very often referred to, comes in different strengths and formulations. The ZO® Skin Health Radical Night Repair is our personal favourite because of its high potency microencapsulated retinol that addresses premature ageing. It stimulates epidermal renewal and collagen production for fewer fine lines as well as evens out skin tone. The high potency microencapsulated retinol has a slow releasing effect that makes it even more effective and stable. Radical Night Repair™ is formulated with additional antioxidants (vitamin E and Marrubium vulgare plant stem cells) as well as moisturising and soothing ingredients (glycerine and plukenetia Volubilis seed oil) that help feed and nourish the skin.
If, however, you are a first-time Retinol user we might suggest starting with the ZO® Skin Health Retinol Skin Brightener 0.25% or 0.5%. When using a Retinol product, we advise starting slow by using it every third or second night until your skin is accustomed to the Retinol.
This antioxidant is the holy grail of skincare, in part because it’s so effective but mostly because formulation and packaging play a huge role in how efficient it is. The ZO® Skin Health 10% Vitamin C Self-Activating Serum provides a powerful punch of ascorbic acid. This form of vitamin C is scientifically proven as the most effective derivative to dramatically brighten the skin and address hyperpigmentation. This serum also helps the skin defend itself against pollution and external environmental triggers. It is formulated with complimentary antioxidants such as vitamin E, coenzyme Q10 and squalene which help to keep the skin hydrated and protected.
