Want brighter skin: you need a Vitamin c serum

If there is one product that I have to say I swear by, it would be my vitamin C serum. I discovered the power of topical vitamin C about 4 years ago and I truth be told, I can’t imagine how I managed without it as part of my skincare regime. Basically it helps my skin to be better. How? Well for starters it’s brighter and that’s major, after all no matter how good your skin is, you’re not really going to say no to increased brightness and luminosity …are you?

Why do you need vit C?
We are always hearing about the need for antioxidants in our diet and of course this extends to our skincare as well. Antioxidants are crucial tools for positive ageing and vitamin C is one of the most essential tools….think of it like a power drill 😜 As our skin gets attacked by the sun, pollution etc it needs heavy duty protection.
👄Vitamin C is an essential component in the body’s production of collagen
👄Vitamin C is not only necessary for producing collagen and maintaining good levels in our skin, but it is also a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals in the skin.
👄The amount of collagen produced by our skin declines with age and this is made worse by those free radicals created by sun exposure, pollution, stress etc….

Brightening: more luminosity, helpful for Hyper pigmentation and age spots
Firming and promotes elasticity
Antioxidant Protection from free radical

Which type
A lot of vitamin C serums have either ascorbic or L-ascorbic acid as the active ingredient
( studies have shown these versions to be the most stable) however these can irritate some skins.

A little word of caution
If you have sensitive skin look for vitamin C serums that are specifically designed for their skin type.
