Vitamin C is amazing from the Inside Out & the Outside In — Hello, Antioxidants!
Top Benefits of Vitamin C Overall:
Add a vibrant glow to your skin, improves your immune system, increases the hormone – progesterone (naturally), increases your stress coping abilities and your libido, helps regulate your metabolism by supporting your thyroid, strengthens the heart, muscles and bones, the antioxidant qualities diffuse harmful free radicals, pollutants and toxins especially on the skin.
Sources of Vitamin C that Work from the Inside Out:
IV bars are popping up all over the country for good reason; The hydration, Vitamin B, Glutathione, and Vitamin C are what people are finding to be the fountain of youth. Although you can find vitamin C in the usual sources as well such as Berries, Broccoli and Red Peppers which are potent sources of this essential nutrient. But Truth be told, sources of Rosehips trump them all with their outrageously high levels of easily absorbable vitamin C.
Why should Vitamin C be a MUST in your product lineup?
Benefits From the Outside In:
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that stimulates collagen production and helps to reduce signs of aging by repairing the damage done by free radicals and the sun. Collagen production reduces over time. Topical serums chalk full of vitamin C can stimulate collagen production, which in turn, reduces the signs of aging (wrinkles). Make sure to always opt for the most powerful source of vitamin c with absorbic or L-absorbic acid. Vitamin C is great for acne scarring, skin pigmentation, and so much more. It works to brighten the skin's tint, but its value to skin pigmentation issues is the tyrosinase inhibitors.
When to Apply?
Vitamin C serum works differently depending on when you use it. The most important thing to keep in mind is that consistency is key.
Use daytime/morning if the real danger to your skin is the sun itself, apply the vitamin C serum in the morning after a face wash, and before makeup (our recs for daytime: Suntegrity Boost Serum normal to mature, Olie Rose Glow Oil dry or mature skin, Eco C Serum or Eco Rosehip Oil for normal skin and anti-aging).
Use at bedtime if skin repair is your real focus. The vitamin C will stop damage in its tracks. Apply after cleansing and before moisturizer or do a face oil loaded with anti-aging vitamin C antioxidants. Our recommendations for bedtime: Olie Rose Glow Oil dry or mature skin, Eco C Serum or Eco Rosehip Oil for normal skin and anti-aging).
If sun damage and skin repair are your focus...GO BIG and do it morning and night. One last note....our Manuka Honey Mask, the Intelligent Elixir C Scrub (can use 3-4 times a week), and the Vitamin C Sheet Masks are the perfect weekly anti-aging boost you need to keep glowing all week long! How is that for anti-aging?
Orange you glad you know now?! So drink up, drip on, and apply that vitamin C daily!
