An organic vitamin C serum will do wonders for your face. As more experts are lauding the benefits of vitamin C for our skin, you can expect more and more people using these facial serums so that they can look like their favourite, age defying Hollywood star.
Now, while vitamin C serums are extremely beneficial for the skin, it doesn’t mean that ALL serums that has “vitamin C” plastered all over it are good. In fact, there are a lot of ineffective vitamin serums that are in the market today.
Some cosmetic companies make these serums with minimum vitamins in it and market it as a “vitamin serum”. The truth of the matter is, if there is only 10% vitamin C in the product, it will not get absorbed in the skin, rendering it pretty much useless. You need to look for those that have around 10% concentrate vitamin C in the product for it to be really effective. It might cost a little bit more but it is better than throwing away your money for stuff that does not work at all.
Aside from vitamin C, look for other ingredients like hyaluronic acid, elastin, vitamin E and vitamin A in the serum. These are proteins and amino acids that boost up the skin’s texture and appearance. Remember, as we grow older, our body loses the nutrients that it once had in abundance. When we use supplements (whether oral or tonics), that trigger the production of these natural vitamins, our skin reaps the benefits and you will see clear, supple skin with less fine lines and wrinkles.
When you find the right organic vitamin C serum, be sure to not neglect using sun protection on your skin. Use a sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection so that your skin will not burn, and more than that, will be protected from serious skin diseases caused by frequent sun exposure. Wait for about 30 minutes after applying the sunscreen before you go out to ensure that your skin has absorbed it completely.
