Were you aware that Vitamin C Serum should be an essential part of your daily skin care routine? Well, your not alone. Up until a couple of years ago, I had never heard that either. Like always, when I hear about something new that piques my interest, I must investigate. Well…Did I have an awakening! First and foremost, I learned that the body uses Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) to replace damaged skin tissue with scar tissue, which helps wounds heal properly. Hmmmm. Interesting. OK. Not only that, but Vitamin C helps the body to produce collagen. Definitely did not know that either. Nor did I know there were 3 types of Collagen. Type 1 and Type 11 Collagen have the greatest effect on skin according to SmartSkinCare.com. Type 111 Collagen gives the skin of young people it’s softness. As people age, Type 1 Collagen replaces Type 111 Collagen. As if that isn’t enough, Vitamin C Serum is a wonderful anti-oxidant, protecting your skin from the damaging free radicals in our atmosphere. Think of it like a sliced apple that that you leave uncovered on the kitchen counter. What happens after a short time? It turns brown or oxidizes. However; if you pour a little lemon juice (Vitamin C) over the apple, it stays fresh. Vitamin C Serum is great for lightening and brightening your skin. Age spots lighten and the overall tone of your skin is improved. In fact, I remember as a kid with “dirty blonde” (yuck!), my mother would squeeze a thousand lemons (?), to make enough juice to rinse my hair with, after it was washed. Then I would go outside to play in the sun, and wait for my hair to transform into a beautiful platinum blonde – NOT! Now did it lighten my hair? Yes! It absolutely lightened my hair, for the same reason it will lighten and brighten your face, helping with hyper pigmentation and sun/age spots. As if all that isn’t enough to convince you to use Vitamin C Serum 20%, on a daily basis, how about this: It also protects your skin from harmful UV Rays which cause age spots and damaged skin to begin with. Use it for preventative care and after damage repair.
*Vitamin C Serum does not have a long shelf life. Therefore, it must be refrigerated or kept in a cool, dark, enclosed cabinet or drawer. As long as the Serum remains clear, you are receiving its benefits. Additionally, the Vitamin C Serum should be thoroughly shaken prior to each use, and applied before any other skin product, in the morning. The slight sticky feel is normal, and will dissipate once the Organic Essentials Company Anti-Aging Serum is lightly applied.
