Vitamin C Serum
Vitamin C is quickly becoming known as a popular go-to for skin care. It’s not just the answer for a good immunity boost anymore. Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a key component in producing collagen, a protein that gives your skin firmness and strength and promotes the growth of cells and blood vessels. It can also aid your skin in repairing itself.
Here’s how it works: when Vitamin C is applied directly to the skin, like in a serum, it acts as an antioxidant and removes free radicals (unstable molecules that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles) in the skin that can cause aging and wrinkles. Free radicals are most often introduced into the skin by sun damage and pollution exposure. Additionally, research shows that vitamin C can reduce sunburn and prevent consequences of long lengths of sun exposure, like age spots and skin cancer. This powerful, natural product is great to add to your anti-aging regimen to keep your skin looking firm and youthful and to protect your skin from UV rays.
Look for some of these products to incorporate into your skin care routine:
A serum, like this Advanced Vitamin C+E Serum, is great because it offers concentrated amounts and fewer ingredients. This serum is specifically formulated to restore firmness and reduce the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles to restore you skin to its natural beauty. For the best results, use it as part of your daily routine that includes an advanced anti-aging cream with SPF and an Advanced Anti-Aging Retinol Cream in the evening.
Use an oil-free face base that works double duty as a primer and an extra dose of vitamins to combat sun and environmental damage.
Your lips have some of the most delicate skin on your body, so don’t forget to take care of it! A lightweight lip balm with vitamin C will provide a UV-fighting, smoothing treatment.
The best part of Vitamin C is that you can feel good about using it, since it’s a naturally occurring and safe ingredient. You’ll love having brighter, younger-looking skin that keeps working long after you’ve applied it.
