How to use an anti-wrinkle vitamin C serum

Vitamin C is an essential ingredient with a triple function: antioxidant, depigmenting and anti-wrinkle, capable of delivering major benefits when applied to our skin. MartiDerm is thrilled to share all the properties of this powerful active that you can find in our anti-wrinkle vitamin C serum, Skin Complex Advanced from the Black Diamond range.

What is a vitamin C serum and how does it work?

An anti-wrinkle vitamin C serum is recommended for use in your daily care routine. One of its main actives, vitamin C, is essential for skin health and acts on the skin of your face, neck and neckline with the following benefits:

  • Antioxidant effect: vitamin C protects your skin from external agents such as environmental pollution or the radiation we expose it to every day and which causes photoaging and the appearance of the first signs of aging, such as wrinkles, expression lines and dark spots.
  • Anti-wrinkle effect: vitamin C helps reduce wrinkles by engaging in the formation of collagen (the protein that moisturises the skin and makes it supple), helping to increase firmness.
  • Depigmenting and brightening effect: vitamin C can reduce the synthesis of melanin, the pigment responsible for the colour of our skin, thereby helping to reduce facial blemishes by regulating hyperpigmentation and evening the tone.

In short, if you're looking to boost skin elasticity and make it brighter and more supple, enjoy a moisturised complexion and, of course, reduce the signs of aging, it's time to add an anti-wrinkle vitamin C serum to your skincare routine.

Skin Complex Advanced, MartiDerm's anti-wrinkle vitamin C serum

Skin Complex Advanced is MartiDerm's anti-wrinkle vitamin C serum in an ampoule format. It is suitable for people with dull, dehydrated skin with signs of flaccidity and expression lines who want to enjoy a rejuvenated complexion. The formula includes 5% Proteum 89+, MartiDerm's exclusive proteoglycan that is 4 times more firming* than a regular proteoglycan, since it offers superior penetration power thanks to its reduced size - meaning more hydration and firmness for your skin.

Skin Complex Advanced ampoules also contain 15% Vitamin C-Tech (the active responsible for antioxidant and brightening effects) and 10 % Vitamin Complex (a nourishing, repairing, antioxidant and regenerating vitamin complex comprising vitamins A, B5, C, D, E and F).

Daily use of MartiDerm's anti-wrinkle vitamin C serum can help give you younger-looking skin in 4 weeks**, as it provides +88% hydration*** and brightens and revitalises your face, neck and neckline. And if wrinkles have you worried, it can reduce them by up to -52%***.

MartiDerm pioneered the creation of serums in an ampoule format manufactured using topaz glass, a material that prevents the components from oxidising, keeping them in perfect condition and guaranteeing each of the benefits described above.

How to apply the serum properly: step by step

Here is a step-by-step guide to applying the serum properly:

  1. Cleanse your face as the first step in your morning skincare routine.
  2. Then use the serum, carefully shaking the Skin Complex Advanced ampoule.
  3. Open it using the Easy Open device inside the box.
  4. Pour half the contents onto your fingers and apply to your face, neck and neckline, massaging in gently until fully absorbed.
  5. Place the ampoule on the base and protect it using the cap of the box so you can repeat these steps in your nightly routine.
  6. Finish by applying moisturiser.

Include anti-wrinkle vitamin C serum in your morning and night skincare routine to achieve the desired results. As explained above, use half an ampoule in the morning and then apply the remainder in the evening.

The Easy Open device will help you to open the ampoule carefully. Here's how to use it:

Hacks to make the most of the serum

Our anti-wrinkle vitamin C serum is not for occasional use but is a skin treatment that should be included in your daily routine to maximise its benefits. For this reason, we recommend using half in the morning and the other half at night.

After application and absorption, use your favourite moisturiser to complete your skincare routine and improve your skin health. If you are interested in learning more about MartiDerm's moisturisers and their benefits, take a look at this: “Moisturiser: your very best skincare partner”.
