Vitamin C Serum

Did you know that our skin doesn’t produce vitamin C naturally externally like other vitamins and minerals do? This is why skin experts can all agree on why after the age of 20 we need a high quality vitamin C for our skin. 

What does a high-quality vitamin C serum do?

6 key skin benefits by using a vitamin C serum:

1) stop premature aging- did you know that your skin does not produce vitamin C externally? That's why you need the help of a vitamin C serum, it helps protect your skin from free radicals, rogue molecules that cause you to age faster. Vitamin C neutralizes these free radicals and creates a barrier so that they cannot come into contact and hurt your skin.

2) It improves your skin by making it firmer and younger looking - vitamin C is a crucial element in the formation of collagen, that keeps your skin looking younger and supple. (hello, firmer skin!)

3) it's faded dark spots and brightens your skin- topical vitamin C serum brightens your age spots and helps reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and discoloration.       

4) it makes your sunscreen more effective and boosts your skins defense against UV exposure- dermatologists believe that vitamin C serum's can offer protection against harmful UV rays. However, it should not be used as a sunscreen and should instead be a supplement to another product, such as prairie bliss botanicals sunscreen moisturizer.

5) Reduce inflammation and irritation, both of which cause a cascade of damage

6) Fade post-breakout red marks by improving skin’s natural healing response

With decades of research around its benefits, vitamin C is a long-established skincare superstar that can help you achieve younger, healthier and more radiant skin. However, like any ingredient, skincare will never be as simple as any single ingredient—just as no single food or nutrient can keep your body healthy, you need more than just one ingredient to keep your skin in good shape, too!
