How is Vitamin C Important For the Skin?

Amir Karam MD Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon Founder / Creator of KaramMD Skin

To achieve the beautiful skin you want, a variety of skincare ingredients are required. Of these, Vitamin C is one of the most important ingredients you need when it comes to achieving glowing, healthy, and youthful skin. Vitamin C serums are popular for a reason: they work. I explain more about what vitamin C helps achieve for the skin in this short video: 4 main reasons you NEED to be using vitamin C in your skin care. Let’s take a deep look into how vitamin C benefits your skin and what results you can expect when you use it.

Vitamin C serum and your skin

Vitamin C can be a game changer for skin, achieving a range of outstanding improvements for any type of skin, particularly oily skin. In addition to removing excess dirt and oil, vitamin C serum neutralizes the skin, resulting in a smooth, soft skin tone that appears more radiant.

Vitamin C serum benefits for oily skin

People with oily skin commonly complain that moisturizers simply make the problem worse, and they don’t work well. A vitamin C serum is lightweight, unlike most moisturizers. While it reduces oil effectively, a good vitamin C serum also achieves a moisturizing effect that balances the skin tone. 

Another benefit of vitamin C for the skin is that the serum helps manage oil and sebum production, further contributing to a balanced, healthy skin texture and tone. As oily skin can be sensitive, a vitamin C serum is gentle, achieving results without causing irritation.

What is Quench, the vitamin C serum formulated by Dr. Karam?

I created Quench as a part of my skincare line, the groundbreaking TRIFECTA. This vitamin C serum provides the following benefits for all skin types and tones:

  • Improves and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brightens and improves skin tone
  • Stimulates collagen production to regenerate fresh, renewed skin
  • Clarifies, evens and improves overall skin texture
  • Brightens dark spots and decreases pigmentation concerns
  • Acts as a powerful antioxidant that protects and renews the skin
  • Clears the skin and reduces acne
  • Helps to tighten and firm the skin
  • Achieves brighter, more luminous, and glowing skin
  • Helps to prevent collagen breakdown and acts as an anti-aging agent
  • Provides anti-inflammatory benefits
  • Neutralizes free radicals

The TRIFECTA by Dr. Karam

I created the TRIFECTA after more than a decade of trying to help my patients find simple, highly-effective skincare products that they could count on to achieve the beautiful results they wanted. Once I realized those products weren’t available without an overly-complex, unsustainable skincare routine, I started formulating the TRIFECTA. These products contain all the vital ingredients your skin needs to be healthy, radiant, and youthful. When it comes to the other vital ingredients included in the TRIFECTA that your skin needs to thrive, I invite you to subscribe to my YouTube channel, DrAmirKaram. There you can watch the other available videos that get into each ingredient and what it achieves for your skin.

The easy-to-use, three-product TRIFECTA line includes:


A unique, gentle but effective cleansing product. Rinse softens and smoothes, boosting cell regeneration and deeply hydrating the skin.


The outstanding vitamin C serum that achieves the benefits listed above and provides an appealing, bright, and luminous skin tone. 


An all-in-one anti-aging cream that firms, deeply hydrates, and refreshes the skin. Illuminate improves skin elasticity, boosts cell turnover, and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles. Illuminate works in conjunction with Rinse and Quench and is also designed to achieve ideal results as a standalone product.
