Vitamin C in ampoules is perfect for home skin and hair care. In order for this drug to bring only benefits, it must be used correctly.
Vitamin C as a component of cosmetic creams and masks
Vitamin C is widely used in cosmetology. Modern manufacturers add it to face creams, as well as shampoos, balms, hair masks. Experts assure that the addition of this component to industrial cosmetic products can be regarded as a certain advertising ploy.
Vitamin C is rather unstable, as it tends to disintegrate upon prolonged contact with air. When it comes into contact with metal surfaces, the vitamin is completely destroyed. In order for this substance to really work, it is necessary to add it to cosmetics before using it.
Many beauty salons offer their patients such a procedure as an injection of a solution of vitamin C. Penetrating into the deep layers of the dermis, the vitamin strengthens it and gives it elasticity. An ampoule with an aqueous solution of the vitamin can solve many problems associated with skin and hair. Most often, cosmetologists offer patients combined ampoules, which include not only vitamin C, but also vitamins B, F and some others.
Cosmetic procedures using preparations with a high content of vitamin C can improve the complexion, eliminate the effects of stress. Vitamin C helps to increase the blood supply to the scalp, which in turn helps to accelerate their growth, giving the hair strength and shine.
How to use vitamin C in ampoules
When buying vitamin C in ampoules, you should remember that you need to add it to cosmetics only before applying them to the face, body, hair. It is impossible to add the drug to creams and masks in advance.
Vitamins in ampoules cannot be used in their pure form, as this can cause severe allergies.
If you are allergic to cosmetics with the addition of vitamin C, you should immediately stop using it and, if necessary, consult a doctor.
When using ampoules for facial skin care, it is necessary to separate a portion of the cream intended for single use from its main mass and add 3-4 drops of a solution of aqueous vitamin C to it. After mixing the components, apply the cream to the face.
The solution can also be added to homemade face masks. It is necessary to drip only 3-4 drops of the vitamin preparation into your favorite nutritional composition, then carefully move the components and apply the mask to your face.
You can mix the components in a ceramic, glass, but not in an iron container. Use wooden spoons and spatulas when mixing ingredients.
Vitamin C can be used to treat hair. To do this, you need to prepare a nutritional composition and add 4-5 drops of an aqueous solution of a vitamin to it, and then apply the mask to your hair for 30-40 minutes.
There is no point in adding the contents of the ampoules to hair shampoos or cleansers, since in this case the product will come into contact with the skin and hair for a very short time, as a result of which the effect of adding the vitamin to cosmetic products will be negligible.
