It’s widely known that vitamin C is a strong antioxidant that aids body function from within. But is vitamin C good for your skin, too? The answer is a resounding “yes.” Vitamin C-infused skincare products minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and noticeable dark spots. The following guide provides tips on how to incorporate vitamin C for skin into your routine using OSEA products.
The Cleanser: Ocean Cleansing Milk
A good skincare routine starts with a good cleanser. Perfect for dry and sensitive skin, the Ocean Cleansing Milk gently breaks down oils, makeup, and additional grime to prevent breakouts. Vitamin C takes the form of ultra-gentle magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, which won’t stress and irritate skin.

The Complexion Enhancer: Anti-Aging Sea Serum
Want to maintain a youthful appearance longer? You’re in luck, as that’s one of the main vitamin C benefits for skin. Our Anti-Aging Sea Serum features 3-O ethyl ascorbic acid as an active ingredient in its antioxidant-packed, essential oil-free formula. This stable, oil- and water-soluble derivative of pure vitamin C promotes a brighter complexion and improves skin’s elasticity3. Massage one or two pumps of the serum into your skin in the morning and evening before moisturizing.

The Hydrating Mist: Sea Vitamin Boost
Achieve a dewy glow with the Sea Vitamin Boost mist. This revitalizing toner is enriched with seaweed, which provides essential nutrients that keep skin feeling soft and supple while supporting its natural moisture barrier⁴. The formula plumps, tones, and hydrates for a more radiant look.
Magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, a stable form of vitamin C, also promotes a more even and radiant skin tone5.
Use Sea Vitamin Boost to hydrate parched skin and help it look brighter on the go and after cleansing in the morning and at night. Pair the mist with moisturizer or face oil to intensify the radiant glow.
