Reasons Why You Need to Use Vitamin C Serum in Skincare

By: Amir Karam MD

You might already know that vitamin C is a powerhouse when it comes to achieving radiant, luminous skin. There are four key reasons you need vitamin C in your skincare routine–it’s a vital ingredient your skin needs to thrive. You can check out this video, where I talk about what vitamin C can do for this skin and why it is a must if you’re trying to achieve or maintain beautiful skin. Here are some of the key reasons why vitamin C is so important for bright, refreshed skin.

Vitamin C brightens and improves your skin tone.

Vitamin C achieves a moisturizing effect that neutralizes the skin to balance the skin tone and manage oil and sebum production, contributing to a smooth, soft skin texture and skin tone that appears more radiant.

Vitamin C reduces hyperpigmentation.

Vitamin C effectively reduces dark spots. Vitamin C has a direct effect on the production of melanin, therefore decreasing the brown spots on the skin.

Vitamin C stimulates collagen production.

Vitamin C is directly involved in the production of collagen–what the skin itself is made of. It works at the molecular level to not only stimulate collagen but to function as a building block of collagen production. It works at the cellular level as well as the structural level. 

Vitamin C reduces inflammation and redness. 

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and has a powerful anti-inflammatory impact. This decreases redness and resolves and minimizes clogged and enlarged pores.   

Quench by KaramMD, the perfect vitamin C serum 

I created Quench, a vitamin C serum for everyone, as a part of my skincare line, the TRIFECTA. Quench works for sensitive skin, oily, dry, or combination skin. Some vitamin C serums have a higher concentration of vitamin C and can cause skin sensitivity. Quench is designed as a morning and evening skin serum that utilizes microdosing to keep the skin bright and beautiful without causing sensitivity.

Quench helps achieve the following additional skin benefits:

  • Minimizes fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduces acne and helps achieve healthy, clear skin
  • Protects and renews the skin
  • Helps to tighten and firm the skin
  • Achieves a healthy, youthful glow
  • Acts as an anti-aging agent
  • Neutralizes free radicals

Finding the right skincare products

I spent over a decade working with patients to help them achieve youthful, sculpted facial features. But a surgical procedure is only half the battle. Healthy, beautiful skin is at least 50% of achieving youthful rejuvenation. After years of searching for the right skincare products for my clients, I realized the skincare line I was looking for didn’t exist. Products with the ingredients patients needed were available, but the skincare routine required was overly-complex, making a daily regimen unsustainable.

Developing the TRIFECTA 

I dedicated the following years to perfecting the TRIFECTA, a simple, three-product skincare routine with the vital ingredients your skin needs to be healthy, glowing, and radiant. The TRIFECTA includes the following:


A gentle, foaming cleanser that softens and smooths the skin, deeply hydrating and boosting cell regeneration.


A Vitamin C serum to achieve a bright, luminous skin tone. 


An all-in-one anti-aging cream that increases skin elasticity, moisturizes and hydrates, and refreshes and renews the skin.

To find out more about the TRIFECTA and the powerful ingredients it includes, I invite you to subscribe to my YouTube channel, DrAmirKaram. In my videos there I explain more about each product and its ingredients and how it renews and heals your skin.

    Hi Dr Karam,
    I use the trifecta on my face and I’m very pleased with the results, but my neck is a different story. I tried using the Trifecta on my neck but my skin wasn’t happy with it, it became very dry, it actually felt itchy, no redness. Any suggestions?
