Using Vitamin C in Your Skincare Routine & The Importance of Vitamin C Rich Food!

Hello there! If you’re looking to boost your skincare routine, Vitamin C is definitely an ingredient you don’t want to miss out on. It’s a powerful antioxidant that helps slow down the aging process, even out your skin tone and texture, boost collagen production, and repair free radical damage. Now, you might be wondering, what are free radicals? Well, they’re pesky molecules that cause premature aging and can come from environmental factors like sun damage, pollution, and oxygen. With the help of Vitamin C, we can protect and support your skin against these external factors. 

Regularly incorporating Vitamin C into your skincare routine can provide a range of benefits to keep your skin healthy, bright, and glowing. It can brighten scarring and pigmentation, reduce redness and inflammation, repair and rejuvenate your skin, improve your skin’s overall tone and texture. Plus, when used alongside sunscreen, Vitamin C can help prevent UV damage. 

If you want to reap the benefits of Vitamin C, using a serum rich in this ingredient is the most effective way to go! Our serums, whether derived from ascorbic acid or plant oils, are more concentrated and can penetrate deeper into your skin. While masks and moisturizers with Vitamin C are great, they may not be as effective in the long run. 

Speaking of plat oils, we love using Rosehip Oil, Sea Buckthorn Oil, and Black Cumin Oil; all of which naturally contain Vitamin C. Rosehip Oil is rich in nourishing Vitamin C, essential fatty acids, and phenols that have been shown to be anti-microbial, ait-inflammatory, and gently exfoliating. Sea Buckthorn Oil on the other hand is a great option for hydrating, regenerating, and protecting sensitive or reactive skin types. Last but not least, Black Cumin Oil is an excellent choice for nourishing and softening your skin while boosting cellular circulation. 

To get the most out of your Vitamin C skincare routine, here are a few tips to keep in mind. Apply your serum both morning and night to protect your skin from environmental damage, UV rays, and pollution. Don’t forget to wear sunscreen on top of your vitamin C to boost its effectiveness! 

Not only can you use our Vitamin C rich products (Clear Skin Advanced Face Serum, Rejuvenating + Hydrating Face Serum, and Radiant Bath + Body Oil) nourish your skin with the goodness of pomegranate! Packed with antioxidants, pomegranates aid in the regeneration of skin cells and promote circulation while their high Vitamin C content promotes collagen formation, resulting in firmer and softer skin!
