A topical vitamin C serum for face is one of the best things you can do for yourself—that is if you want, healthy, glowing skin. There is no need to go under the knife, or go to expensive treatments in stark dermatologist offices. Simply apply this serum on your face every day and you will see the significant improvement in your skin’s texture and appearance in a few, short weeks.
What’s all the fuss about vitamin C? I know most of us know this mighty vitamin as our defender against cough and cold. However, not a lot of us realized what a great help this is when it comes to our skin. The truth of the matter is, vitamin C has many skin care benefits that will make even the most cynical of us believers in its powers.
Vitamin C is one of the most vital proponents of collagen products. Collagen is the protein responsible for cell renewal, which basically means the better the collagen production, the more likely you have supple and clear skin.
Vitamin C is also helpful in reversing skin aging- diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It helps protect the skin against sun damage. It also quickens the healing of burns and scars from wounds that we inevitably subject our skin to. The skin is the largest part of the body and if you have not even a little wound to show for it, you are probably not living life the way you should be living it.
things citrusy? They are, after all, good for your body and will result in better over-all health.
By all means, load up on your fruits and vegetables for health, but in order to really squeeze out the maximum benefits of vitamin C for your skin, it is better to apply it directly to the skin. No, I don’t mean that you slice an orange and slather its juices all over your face. I mean use a pure vitamin C face serum and make it a part of your daily skin care regimen.
Look for vitamin C serums that include hyaluronic acid in its list of ingredients. Hyaluronic acid has often been used as lip fillers by plastic surgeons. In this case, hyaluronic acid will moisturize and help clear skin from impurities and imperfections. It is not a very common ingredient, but it will be well worth your effort to find a serum that has this “fountain of youth” acid in it.
Using these serums is idiot proof and with consistent use, will show the effects soon enough. Cleanse your face with a mild facial wash. Pat your face dry. Then apply a small amount of the vitamin C serum all over your face. With your ring and middle finger, massage this topical serum well on your face and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes to make sure that the skin absorbs all the nutrients of the serum. Apply a sunscreen (preferably with SPF level 30) all over your face and neck. Then you can put on your make-up.
Obviously, you skip the last two steps when you retire at night. Do not neglect it though because sunscreen will not only protect your face from aging too quickly, it will also save you from possible serious skin diseases like cancer and the like. If you prefer to apply your serum in the evenings, you can go to bed after applying the topical vitamin C serum on your face.
