Vitamin C is not only one of my favorite products, it’s an awesome product to use around this time of year when everything is transitioning….the weather, your wardrobe, and your skin. When the weather gets cooler your skin needs an extra boost because its easier and more likely to get dehydrated if you don’t take the right steps. Vitamin C is easy to find in products and is found in citrus fruits and vegetables. Smokers need twice as much Vitamin C because smoking depletes it in the body.
But here are a few reasons why I love it!
1. Anti-aging properties
Most don’t know that Vitamin C helps with anti-aging properties because it promotes the production of collagen and helps to firm skin. It is also needed so skin and tissues can properly heal themselves.
2. Fades dark spots
When used in serums Vitamin C helps to lighten sun and acne spots over time. With continued use dark spots can fade and even go away. The key is consistency. If dark spots are an issue for you using a Vitamin C serum every day will help, in addition to exfoliating and cleansing on a regular basis.
For some reason back in 2014 I was experiencing breakouts on my cheeks. I started using a Vitamin C serum, getting more Vitamin C facials and within a couple of months those spots have disappeared.
Getting a professional Vitamin C facial at least once every few months could also help. The difference in professional and over the counter products is amazing. There’s an instant glow but the few days after your skin will literally have a noticeable glow.
3. Gives a glow
This is the reason I love Vitamin C for the cooler months. Applying it topically in the form of a serum and/or cream will give your skin a natural glow. No need for extra makeup or highlighter because a Vitamin C serum will take care of that for you.
Regardless of your skin type having a natural glow with clear skin is a sign of healthy skin. Especially since the weather is cooler try out a vitamin C serum, cream, or mask and let me know what you think.
