Vitamin C & Hyaluronic Acid
Lifestyle and aging as well as diet and nutrition, influence the beauty of your skin. To help your skin stay healthy and beautiful, make sure you eat food loaded with Vitamin C and in the same time apply skincare rich in the same skin nutrients. Trust us, this combination is perfect. All you need is a high-quality Vitamin C Serum and your daily dose of vitamin C (one Kiwi for example).
Over time, as our skin is exposed to the harsh environments and harmful UV sunrays, it can prematurely age and lose its youthful appearance. We see this daily when we look in the mirror. This is due to the loss of collagen and increased damage to skin cells. There are several products on the market that can replace collagen and repair damaged cells. One such product is the Vitamin C Serum. Vitamin C isn’t just for colds, applied topically it has the ability to stimulate collagen production and plump our skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Your skin will have a tighter and firmer feel while it’s also a great first step to treating the onset of wrinkles. Be sure to look for a good quality Vitamin C Serum with either ascorbic or L-ascorbic acid as the active ingredient to get the best results.
Perfect Vitamin C
There are several other benefits to using a Vitamin C Serum as well. It is rich in antioxidants that repair and renew the cells and give your skin a healthier look. It also restores and regenerates your skin. Vitamin C attacks the free radicals in your body and does some hardcore damage repair. If you have any acne scars left from previous breakouts, you’ll find them fading with regular application. Quality serums act as a natural bleaching agent and can lighten the skin, including age spots and dark circles under the eye. The serum can offer protection from the sun as we are often overexposed and this leads to hyperpigmentation and sun spotting. Vitamin C Serum will counteract the harmful effects of the sun and also decrease the chances of skin cancer by thickening the dermis layer. It is important to note that a Vitamin C Serum cannot replace your sunscreen. A sunscreen provides the much-needed SPF protection by shielding the outer layer of the skin while the Vitamin C Serum acts as a sun barrier from within the skin. You should apply the sunscreen as well as the Vitamin C Serum before going outside for prolonged periods of time. It also works best with a good quality moisturizer applied after the serum has been absorbed into your skin.

Why Hyaluronic acid
Another important ingredient to look for in your Vitamin C Serum is hyaluronic acid. It improves your skin moisture content and at the same time strengthens the outer layers of your skin. The outer skin looks and feels softer, smoother, and plumper; all hallmarks of younger looking skin! But that’s not all that hyaluronic acid can do, there’s more. We know that just about everything, from sun damage and acne to sensitive skin and rosacea, can lead to a damaged barrier, so repairing your skin’s barrier with skin-identical ingredients, like hyaluronic acid can go a long way toward fixing, or at least minimizing, those issues, which means it’s helpful for all skin types. Its lightweight texture isn’t an issue for oily skin, and it’s gentle enough that it isn’t a problem for sensitive skin. Hyaluronic acid is also safe to use while pregnant or breastfeeding. Even better, hyaluronic acid also provides antioxidant defense against free-radical damage and reduces inflammation.
