Looking for a way to improve your skin care routine? Vitamin C might be the answer! This nutrient is beneficial for skin in a number of ways, and our luxury skincare brand has developed vitamin C serum face capsules that contain high levels of vitamin C. But how should you store this serum so that you can get the most out of it? We'll answer that question for you here.


The Three Forms of Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that has a role in many different processes in the body, including keeping your skin healthy and looking great. It's also known as ascorbic acid, and you'll find it in a variety of foods and supplement forms. 

When it comes to your skin care routine, though, it is found in cosmetics, where it often takes the form of L-ascorbic acid, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, and ascorbyl-6-palmitate. L-ascorbic acid is the most common form used in skin care products, but it's also the most unstable. 

That means that it can degrade quickly when exposed to light. Magnesium ascorbyl phosphate is the most stable.

Vitamin C Benefits for Skin

Vitamin C is often lauded for its ability to improve the appearance of the skin. When applied topically, it can help to:

  • Reduce the signs of aging 
  • Brighten and firm the skin
  • Fade the appearance of dark spots
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Boost collagen production
  • Shield skin from environmental aggressors

What are Circcell Vitamin C Ampoules? 

Circcell's Vitamin C Ampoules are a unique product that contains high levels of vit C. Our ampoules contain the traditional L-ascorbate acid mentioned here, along with the other two forms. 

All three varieties work together to provide immediate and long-lasting protection to your skin. This aspect makes Circcell Vitamin C Ampoules more potent than other vitamin C products on the market.

The ampoules also help to brighten and firm skin while also reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, the ascorbic acid in Circcell's Vitamin C Ampoules can help to protect from photodamage, which is skin damage resulting from UV irradiation. 

That makes Vitamin C Serum a must-have for days spent outdoors, especially in the days of summer when we tend to be outside the most.

How to Store Vitamin C Serum

You may be using Vitamin C serum and notice that your skin care routine isn't working as well as it used to. The most likely thing behind it is that the vitamin C degrades after exposure to light. 

As mentioned, L-ascorbic acid is unstable. When it's exposed to light, it degrades and loses its potency. That means all of the benefits that Vitamin C imparts will be lost. You'll want to take steps to avoid this happening by storing your products properly.

Here are a few tips to keep it fresh and potent for longer:

  • Store it in the fridge; just make sure you take it out a few minutes before applying to give it a chance to warm up.
  • If you don't use the refrigerator, keep vit C in a cool, dark place. A cabinet or drawer away from windows will keep it from oxidizing.
  • If the product's label shows it's expired, dispose of it.
  • Close the container tightly every time you use it.
  • Choose containers with dark packaging. This protects the product from light exposure.
  • When stored properly, your vit C will last up to six months.
  • Don't use it if you notice changes like a gritty texture, changes in color or it smells off, as this means it's gone bad.

Why Circcell Vitamin C Ampoules are Different

Our Vitamin C Ampoules are specifically packaged in a way that protects the potency and efficacy of the active ingredients inside, ensuring maximum results from just a minimal amount of product. The ampoules are biodegradable and made from an environmentally safe, vegetable-sourced material.

Additionally, the microsponge technology in the ampoules enables a controlled release of actives for long-acting protection. Their design also delivers high levels of L-ascorbic acid to the skin, brightening skin tone and fighting fine lines and wrinkles. 

The ampoules also contain other beneficial ingredients, such as biopeptides for collagen production and vitamin E for turbocharging vitamin C's effectiveness.

So if you're looking for a powerful vitamin C product that will give you visible results, Circcell's Two Weeks of Vitamin C are a great choice.

How to Use Vitamin C Ampoules

Now that you know where to store vitamin C serum, it’s time to discuss how to use it. After cleansing with your go-to Circcell cleanser, twist off the top and apply the ampoule's content on your face, neck and décolleté. Remember, a little bit goes a long way. You can also use the serum on other areas of concern, such as the backs of your hands. Gently massage it in with circular motions until it's fully absorbed. Larger areas may require more than one capsule. Follow up with your favorite Circcell moisturizer.
