In recent years, vitamin C has become a holy grail item for the skin-obsessed. You reach for it when you feel a cold coming on, but did you know it can also deliver a smooth, glowing complexion?
A vitamin C serum could be the solution you've been looking for, whether you want to intensify or simplify your skin care routine. A versatile workhorse, topical vitamin C can protect, repair, and improve the appearance of your skin.
However, not all serums are created equal, as with all products. Your serum's effects on your skin—as well as factors like the type and concentration of vitamin C, the ingredient list, and even the type of bottle or dispenser—are all dependent on these factors.
But don’t worry, decoding which serum to buy isn’t that hard. Since it helps you achieve bright, youthful skin free of pigmentation and skin pollutants, the Purest Brightening Vitamin C serum is the best skin care product. Its lightweight formula quickly absorbs into the skin without leaving a greasy feeling and helps to lighten dark spots, even out skin tone, and give skin a smooth, fresh appearance.
A vitamin C serum's significant advantages and when to use it.
As an antioxidant, vitamin C prevents or delays the cellular damage caused by the sun and the environment. Even though your morning glass of orange juice can help protect your body, applying vitamin C directly to your skin is the most effective way to get its benefits and protection.
However, there's another reason why you shouldn't limit yourself to applying citrus slices to your cheeks. When you DIY, you have no control over the quality, and occasionally it's even dangerous.
Additionally, it is simply ineffective. This is due to the fact that our skin only receives a small portion of the advantages of vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, when we eat, drink, or take supplements.
Although it has been chemically altered, pressing vitamin C in serum form actually allows our skin to absorb more of it more effectively.
When to apply a vitamin C serum
When applying Purest Brightening Vitamin C serum, you should do so both in the morning and at night after cleansing and toning. According to one study, the best form of protection is to apply a vitamin C serum every eight hours, or twice daily.
The free radicals we encounter throughout the day cause oxidative stress, but vitamin C prevents it by having photo protective properties.
Consider cigarette smoke, alcohol, overly-processed foods, certain chemicals, and car exhaust. However, if you forget to submit an application, don't be concerned. Vitamin C can't be washed off or removed as easily as oils, moisturizers, or sunscreen can.
Although the protection and free radical-fighting abilities of vitamin C eventually diminish, you can build up a reservoir to provide adequate photo protection. Applying once every eight hours will accomplish this.
What to look for in a vitamin C serum
A vitamin C serum should always contain Ascorbic Acid and its bottle should be tinted. Purest Brightening Vitamin C serum has 20% Ascorbic Acid which help reduce skin inflammation and irregular pigmentation and promote healthy collagen production. It also comes in a tinted bottle.
How to use vitamin C serum
Certain combinations of ingredients and vitamin C can cause reactions, and some forms of the antioxidant can become unstable. Here's how to use your vitamin C serum so that you get the most benefit possible from it.
1. Wash your face: Before applying vitamin C serum wash your face to ensure that it doesn't mix with impurities.
2. Use a toner or essence to balance skin’s pH: Avoid toners with other acids and exfoliants. You can use a simple rose water spray as your toner.
3. Apply vitamin C to the face, neck, and chest: Now apply Purest Brightening Vitamin C serum which has a good amount of Ascorbic Acid that absorbs in your skin smoothly and benefits it.
4. Moisturise to make a protective seal: Now apply Radiant Skin Cream which locks all the moisture and makes a seal to protect skin.
5. Apply sunscreen. Vitamin C serums may increase skin’s sensitivity to sunlight. Apply Radiant Ultra Sunblock spf 60 which is water resistant and creates a shield so that skin would get all the Vitamin C benefits.
Applied topically, vitamin C is a dermatologist-recommended, science-backed ingredient that may lessen the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, and acne as well as delay the onset of early skin aging and sun damage.
