Vitamin C serums for face and skin care are becoming increasingly popular due to their proven results, anti-aging properties, and ease of use. Not only are they known to moisturize and regenerate healthy, durable skin, vitamin C serums are also known to act as excellent defenders against everyday pollutants including radiation, sunlight, cancer-causing molecules and smoke.
Experts say vitamin C serum is a star because it effectively treats a range of skin care issues including discoloration, acne, sensitive and oily skin, dark spots/circles, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and more. Vitamin C serum is a superstar because it contains very few allergens and is generally a safe skin care treatment for everyone.
The acidic nature of vitamin C serum results in a number of benefits that includes shedding dead skin cells and improving skin elasticity to leave the skin’s surface brighter and smoother which, in turn, speeds up new cell regeneration. Not only this, vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that boosts healing, protects skin, and neutralizes free radicals which damage proteins, lipids, and DNA in your skin causing further cell damage. Vitamin C bolsters the body’s collagen production which decelerates the aging process and helps repair poor-clogged and sun-damaged skin. This natural panacea also inhibits tyrosinase production which is a key enzyme in producing pigment in skin. By blocking this function, vitamin C lightens discoloration from sun spots, age spots, or acne scars.
Not all vitamin C serums are made equal. Smartr Skin’s Advanced Vitamin C & E Serum with Hyaluronic Acid guarantees best results for your face and skin as it combines several nutrients required for great skin such as vitamin C (20%) and vitamin E to help prevent sun damage, Hyaluronic Acid for moisture retention power, Natural Jojoba Oil to help control bacterial growth, Witch Hazel & Aloe Vera for brightening features, and Amino Acid Arginine to help heal acne and skin damage.
Although generally well-tolerated, you should always do a patch test to ensure you avoid an allergic reaction. This can be performed by applying a small amount of product to a concealable body part like the forearm and waiting 24 hours. If no side effects (rash, redness, hives) occur from the vitamin C serum, you can apply it to the face and skin. Most skin care experts recommend adding a Vitamin C serum to your skin care routine slowly before building up a daily or twice-daily tolerance.
