Vitamin C Benefits for the skin.
The primary function of the skin is to protect from environmental factors, like pollution, pathogens, ultraviolet radiation and dehydration…so I guess it’s like our first line of defence and that’s why it’s the first to show signs of damage and age. Our skin contains vitamin C to help with stimulating collagen and assisting in antioxidant protection against UV damage, but with all the stress it gets bombarded with, on a daily basis, we need to give it a helping hand.
Enter Vitamin C serum/cream…Look for a combination of C, E and Ferulic Acid, (Vitamin E stabilizes C and the Ferulic acid helps your skin absorb more of the cocktail). Look for ones in a dark glass bottle or a container that doesn’t have exposure to light and air, otherwise, it will slowly degrade and be useless.
Apply in the AM and PM on clean damp skin before your moisturizer or SPF and press on to the skin.
My absolute favourite is Mad Hippie vitamin C serum because it contains no junky ingredients and my skin soaks it up without the tingling sensation. It’s made in the US but you can buy it on Amazon, online or order straight from their website. I have yet to find one that is as good as this and in the same price range, so hit me up if you have a brand you love..I would love to try it!
