There is no shortage of anti-aging ingredients on the market today, all promising dramatic results overnight. Some get their 15 minutes of fame, but are quickly replaced with the next best thing in no time. Research is clear that using a range of beneficial ingredients is always best for keeping your skin at its healthiest. However, there are a couple standout ingredients that you must not overlook if you’re serious about achieving optimal skin health.
Vitamin C is one of those extraordinary ingredients that are among a select few that can treat multiple skincare concerns. It’s been used and studied for many years, and one of the most proven skincare ingredients. For this reason, Lyndsey and I spent over a year creating our own Vitamin C serum.
After days, weeks, and months of countless tweaks to our formula and several trashed batches, including one of which I thought for sure burned my skin off, we created what I believe to be one of our best products yet. Our all-natural serum combines high quality vitamin C with fruit & herb concentrates and a shot of organic Lemon Essential Oil for an invigorating citrus scent. It was the perfect addition to the Handcrafted Beauty line.
What does it do?
- Protects from the sun – overexposure to the sun can cause hyperpigmentation and sun spots. Vitamin C serum will counteract harmful effects of the sun and can also decrease your chances of skin cancer by thickening the dermis layer of your skin.
- Stimulates collagen production – collagen is a natural type of protein in the body and is the main structural component of your skin. We lose collagen as we age due to a variety of causes. Vitamin C serum helps stimulate collagen production to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and restore firmness in the skin.
- Acts as an antioxidant – Vitamin C is loaded with anti-oxidants and attacks free radicals. Continued use of Vitamin C serum will fade acne scars from past breakouts and even skin tone and clarity.
How to apply it?
Vitamin C serum should be applied like other serums or lotions. We recommend using it in the AM daily after cleansing and toning your skin. It should not replace your daily moisturizer and sunscreen. For best results, follow with our Daily Moisturizing Oil.
