I call this Vitamin C-hange.
This is exactly what happens when you incorporate vitamin C into your skincare regimen.
If you are not currently using vitamin C on your skin then you are truly missing out on many important benefits.
We are all aware of the benefits vitamin C has when we eats foods rich with it but those same benefits we also gain by applying it properly to our skin.
Benefits of Using a Vitamin C Serum in your Skincare Regime:
- You are seeing these strange dark spots on your skin and although probably harmless, they are unwelcome. Using a Vitamin C serum will help reduce the signs of hyperpigmentation, the excess of melanin that creates spots on the skin due to sun damage.
Vitamin C Serum is a powerful antioxidant and will help to brighten your skin effortlessly.
- Vitamin C partners with enzymes to develop healthy collagen. This allows for mega support to heal wounds and blemishes.
- Photoaging is premature aging of the skin caused by repeated exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UV), primarily from the sun but also from artificial UV sources. Photoaging differs from chronologic aging: the damaging effects of UV rays – from the sun or artificial tanning sources – alter normal skin structures. Vitamin C in clinical studies and used on the skin has shown significant improvements on average 74% in their skin after 3 months of use. These studies showed improvement in fine lines and wrinkles, texture, photodamage and skin tone.
Don’t forget about your hands and your upper chest!
Here is what I make and it only takes a few minutes. Please remember Vitamin C is strong and can give you a tingling effect when applied.
If the stinging is unbearable or you are showing signs of hypersensitivity please discontinue use immediately. As such I recommend using this initially 2 to 3 times the first few weeks and gradually work your way to nightly.
Use on clean skin and be sure to use only in the evening as it can cause sensitivity to sun exposure.
You should see visible results in just 3 short weeks.
For the fun of it take a picture of your skin prior to use. After 3 months take another and I am positive you will see changes!
Use a 1.5 ounce amber bottle with a dropper. The amber bottle protects the precious ingredients from exposure to light which can reduce the effectiveness.
- 1 teaspoon Vitamin C powder (you can get this on amazon)
- 1 teaspoon filtered water
- 1 teaspoon of glycerin (vegetable)
- 1 1/2 tablespoons of aloe gel
- 1/8 teaspoon of Vitamin E oil
- 6 drops of Frankincense Essential Oil
Use a bowl and mix all the ingredients together with a miniature whisk.
Using a small funnel, empty your mixture into the amber bottle.
Viola! You just save yourself upwards of $50 plus dollars in professionally manufactured Vitamin C serums!
