Do You Really Need A Vitamin C Serum?

“Vitamin C Serum is the cornerstone to any skin care regimen”-Pamela Hill, R.N.

We hate to break it to you, but there will never be a magic potion to miraculously fix your skin overnight. You need to eat well and be physically active to keep your body healthy, right? Skin care is no different. You need to feed your skin the right ingredients and participate in the proper regimen to keep it healthy.

There are some universally beneficial ingredients in skin care. Vitamin C is one of them. Regardless of what your skin concerns are, Vitamin C plays a vital role in keeping your skin healthy due its high antioxidant concentration.

None of us are exempt from free radical damage – regardless of how much sunscreen we apply or the number of protective layers we wear, we’re still susceptible to the sun, pollution, and smoke. These free radicals, and so many others, are what creates concern for the health of our skin.

Thankfully, there’s Vitamin C to the rescue!

Worried about fine lines? Apply Vitamin C.
Want to treat redness? Apply Vitamin C.
Tired of dull looking skin? Apply Vitamin C.
And the list goes on.

When it comes to anti-aging in particular, Vitamin C is necessary. Collagen is naturally present in the body. Topical Vitamin C serums can stimulate collagen production. This added collagen, from Vitamin C can reduce and prevent signs of aging.

As our founder Pamela always says, “Vitamin C is the cornerstone to any skin care regimen”. Below are her top tips for getting the most out of this powerhouse ingredient.

 

Pam’s Tips For Vitamin C 

 

Timing Is Key:

You wouldn’t drink orange juice at night, right? The same rule applies to Vitamin C Serum. To really reap the benefits of Vitamin C, it’s better to apply it in the morning.

Keep It In Order:

People often get confused about when to apply Vitamin C. For those of you who just use a cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen in the morning, Vitamin C serum is easy to fit into your routine. Apply it right after you cleanse your skin and just before you apply your moisturizer. It’s a simple step, but one that will make a huge impact when done correctly.

Don’t Forget Your Sunscreen:

While Vitamin C is a big fighter of solar free radicals, it doesn’t mean it protects you from the sun. In any skin care regimen that includes Vitamin C, sunscreen use is necessary.
Sunscreen is the final step in your routine that seals in the benefits of all the products applied before it.

Consistency:

As with anything in life, you will see greater benefits if you consistently do it. Vitamin C Serums needs to be applied every day before you see the results to your skin. Good skin requires commitment.

Apply It Properly:

Vitamin C will help all day if properly applied. A generous layer over the entire face and neck. Some of it left on your fingers? Rub it on your hands. It doesn’t just have to benefit the face.
