The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% is a water-free solution that combines two of the most well-known brightening agents in skincare: pure vitamin C and alpha arbutin. Both ingredients are highly effective at reducing the appearance of dark spots, uneven skin tone, and hyperpigmentation.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect the skin from free radical damage. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage cells, leading to premature aging and the appearance of dark spots. Vitamin C also helps to boost collagen production, which can help to improve the overall texture of the skin.
Alpha arbutin is a naturally occurring compound that works by inhibiting the production of melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color. This can help to lighten the appearance of dark spots, age spots, and sun spots. Alpha arbutin is also a gentle ingredient that is unlikely to cause irritation.
The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% is a great option for anyone looking for a safe and effective way to brighten the skin. It is a gentle formula that is suitable for all skin types.
Here are some tips for using The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2%:
- Apply it to clean, dry skin in the morning.
- Use a few drops and massage it into the skin until it is absorbed.
- You can use it alone or under your moisturizer.
- It is important to note that vitamin C and alpha arbutin can make the skin more sensitive to the sun. Be sure to wear sunscreen daily, even on cloudy days.
The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% is a great addition to any skincare routine. It is a safe and effective way to brighten the skin and reduce the appearance of dark spots.
How To Use:
Apply a few drops to the face in the AM and PM as part of your skincare regimen. Use sun protection in the AM.
Note: Notoriously difficult to keep stable, vitamin C and alpha-arbutin do not perform at their best when combined with water – hence, this formula is completely water-free. It may feel slightly ‘oily’ for a few seconds after application, despite the fact that it is completely free from oil.
