I have been using vitamin C serum for about 5 years now and I am hooked for life!
What is Vitamin C?
Vitamin C serum is an antioxidant that is both preventative and restorative.
What are the benefits?
Vitamin C Serum does so many great things for your skin. It helps stimulate collagen. It reduces signs of aging caused by the free radicals in the air and the sun. It also helps to brighten your skin and give you a more even skin tone. The best thing about it is that EVERYONE can use it because it is safe and beneficial for any age, skin type, or ethnicity. Vitamin C serum is great for hyperpigmentation as well. There are so many of us out there that are suffering from hyperpigmentation and not sure what to do about it. This works really well in combination with a topical prescription to balance out the skin tone in a safe and non-invasive way.
It is a great reparative product! I pretty much avoid the sun because I know it is not my friend, but if you do happen to get a sunburn, it helps to recover the skin quicker. This is why it also is so great for acne prone skin because your skin is constantly going through trauma. It will help to repair ance lesions and balance out any hyperpigmentation left on the skin.
I use this Brightening Vitamin C serum sold by DermaCare.
It is pharmaceutical grade which meaning it is stronger and more effective than over the counter. It does not oxidize on my skin as other vitamin C serums do. It is very affordable for how long it lasts and how much product you get.
How to use it.
I always wash my face before I put any product on. This is a reparative product so it should be the very next product that you put on. I only use a few drops for my face, neck, and chest. A little bit truly does goes a long way. If I have any left in my hand I like to use it on the back of my hands as well. I also use other products as so I apply those and then I apply my moisturizer.
