Achieve Brighter Skin with Vitamin C

Is your skin dull, dry, and damaged from too much fun in the sun this summer? Head into fall with a BRIGHTER complexion by adding Vitamin C into your skincare regimen.

Benefits of Vitamin C for Skin

Vitamin C is one of the most potent topical antioxidants available ... it's like a “superfood” for your skin.

It promotes collagen production which improves elasticity in the skin, and its powerful antioxidants can brighten a dull complexion and erase sun spots.

So say bye-bye to uneven skin tone and hello to a brighter, smoother, plumper complexion.

What You Need to Know about Vitamin C Serums

Serums are a great delivery method for Vitamin C because they are designed to deliver a higher concentration of active ingredients. They come in a wide variety of strengths ranging from 5-30%. 

If you have dry or sensitive skin you’ll want to start with lower concentrations at first (5-10%). Those with normal to oily skin should tolerate the 20-30% levels well.

Vitamin C works very well in combination with vitamin E, ferulic acid, vitamin B, and hyaluronic acid. Look for a serum that contains a combination of these ingredients for maximum benefits in fighting free radical damage and boosting collagen production.
