Vitamin C, you know, that stuff that we find in a cup of orange juice or we take at the onset of a cold. But did you know that Vitamin C can also (and should) be incorporated into our skincare routines?
What does it do?
Vitamin C is an important ingredient for all of our skincare routines as it provides a wide range of highly beneficial factors for our skin.
One of Vitamin C’s best benefits is the promotion of collagen production. The presence of collagen makes your skin firmer and reduces what we as women all seem to be fighting, those dreaded wrinkles and fine lines.
It also protects your skin from UVA and UVB rays. Both types of sun-rays can penetrate your skin creating permanent damage. They are something you’ll definitely want to avoid as much as possible. Vitamin C should never replace sunscreen but can provide added benefits when mixed with an SPF.
Vitamin C can also combat under-eye bags, skin discoloration, and hyperpigmentation. It has brightening effects and within a few uses, the progress will become apparent. This ingredient will also keep you looking youthful with its anti-aging effects. Many celebrities and models swear by the use of Vitamin C to keep them looking younger, dewy, and camera ready.
If you suffer from puffiness, Vitamin C may be something you want to check out. This ingredient can reduce inflammation if used often and in a high enough concentration. It also speeds up the process of healing damaged skin and provides hydration. It’s no wonder why Vitamin C is growing increasingly popular in skincare products and routines with women everywhere.
When should you use it?
It’s best and most effective to use Vitamin C in the morning to protect your skin from the sun and toxins we come in contact with every day. With that being said, you can apply it twice a day if desired for faster results.
After washing your face but prior to applying makeup, use a Vitamin C serum to ensure you’re reaping all of the benefits that this incredible ingredient can provide.
Apply the serum drops and blot into your skin using a cotton ball or cloth. Make sure you give your skin time to absorb the serum and dry completely before moving on.If Vitamin C sounds like something you’re ready to begin reaping the benefits of, you can try our Skin Glow – Vitamin C Serum to help achieve the glowing skin you’ve always wanted.
