Let's incorporate Vitamin C into your routine this morning. 🙋♀️It's small, it's mighty, it's the 🔑 to silky smooth skin all summer long!If you're looking for a vitamin C product to start your day, take a look at my top 3 #VitaminCEssentials. In this comprehensive guide, you'll find everything you need to know about the most in-demand (and under-the-radar) ingredient in skin-care products.
These formulations will fend against uneven skin tone, rough texture, fine lines, acne scars, general dullness — you can name just about any common complexion concern and there's a good chance that vitamin C (and the skin-care products it's featured in) is a recommended treatment.
It's potent stuff, so you only need a few drops for each application. It's best to start out with a low concentration and work your way up as your skin grows more accustomed to the ingredient.
Amazingly, vitamin C's skin-saving benefits aren't limited to its antioxidant status.
Protection from UV Damage
Vitamin C has antioxidant properties, which means it can help to fight against free radicals, reduce inflammation and protect your skin from sun damage.
While this is no replacement for sunscreen, consistent use of a vitamin C serum will play its part in keeping your skin healthy.
Evens Skin Tone
Vitamin C's anti-inflammatory qualities can also aid in reducing redness, which can lead to a more uniform complexion. It also helps fade acne scars and sunspots for a clean, smooth skin tone.
Say Goodbye to Premature Ageing
Premature ageing is caused by unprotected sun exposure, which leads to sun damage. Vitamin C serums shield the skin from the untimely skin wrinkles that exposure to the sun can bring.Since Vitamin C serums promote collagen formation, they can also help slow down the signs of premature ageing, such as the onset of wrinkles.
Helps With Designer Eye-Bags
When it comes to erasing hyperpigmentation and bothersome dark circles and under-eye bags caused by hyperpigmentation, vitamin C is that gal!
As mentioned earlier, vitamin C is known to enhance collagen formation, which improves skin elasticity. It also strengthens blood vessels and improves circulation, significantly reducing the appearance of dark under-eye circles.
The key is not the vehicle that vitamin C comes in, but the form of vitamin C that is being applied. My favourite products are serums which are more effective than creams or toners.
#Skinceuticals serums feature a synergistic antioxidant of 15% PURE vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid). It is clinically proven to deliver advanced environmental protection, fights free-radical damage, and gives you a boost of powerful antioxidant protection.
With that in mind, here are three of my all-time favourite SkinCeuticals vitamin C serums:
C E Ferulic
(✅Skin Concern: Aging | Dehydration | Discoloration)
This award-winning serum is a unique blend of 15% vitamin C, % vitamin E, and 0.5% ferulic acid, a combination which boosts the stability and efficacy of vitamin C, and this product is super efficient.
This vitamin C serum penetrates the deep layers of your skin and provides protection against environmental pollution, reduces wrinkles, tightens skin, and enhances your complexion.
I highly recommend this antioxidant serum to help preserve, heal, and refresh your skin. It is suitable for all skin types and all ages.
Silymarin C F
(✅Skin Concern: Acne | Aging)
Need a vitamin C serum for acne-prone skin? The SkinCeuticals Silymarin CF serum will be the perfect addition skin care regimen. It combines skin-brightening vitamin C with the potent antioxidants silymarin and ferulic acid and a dose of salicylic acid to help improve skin texture and stop breakouts.
This serum is easily absorbed, promotes glowing skin, and can be used with other products in your skincare routine. It isn't too harsh that it irritates your skin, making it perfect for every skin type.
Phloretin C F
(✅Skin Concern: Aging | Discoloration)
This morning vitamin C serum contains the same ingredients as the C E ferulic serum. However, it replaces vitamin E with Phloretin- a powerful antioxidant that protects against free radicals that lead to premature ageing and stimulates collagen production.
Phloretin CF packs quite a punch in the antioxidant department and would leave your skin radiant, softer and smoother.
It is an excellent complement to your sunscreen as phloretin provides extra protection against photoaging. It is suitable for every skin type and ageing skin.
