Vitamin C Serums!
Hello again! Kathryne here, providing you with more insight on the latest skincare news.
Everyone has been asking more about vitamin C serum, so that’s mainly what this blog if about.
First off, I will state that with so many products on the market for skincare alone, it can seem challenging to choose the one that’s right for you. The good news is, it doesn’t have to be as complicated as you think. As I’ve mentioned before, please make sure to read the label before purchase to confirm an organic product. A company can be vegan, cruelty-free, paraben, and sulfate free and still contain chemicals such as phenoxyethanol and ethylhexylglycerin, sodium benzoate, oxybenzone, irritants such as parfum, DEA, BHA etc. Those are a no no-even if they are at the bottom of the ingredients list. The few chemicals will still be powerful enough to counteract the nutrients. You don’t want anything contradicting. This knowledge is vitally important for the health of your skin, and not to mention the endocrine system. It’s totally worth spending the extra money for a high quality product that will work fast than to purchase something cheap that ruins your skin with dehydration, clogs pores, with the result of blemishes and fine lines. Let’s all contribute and support companies dedicated to making 100% organic products. I’m going to cut to the chase and inform you all of a magnificent serum with vitamin c.
What you can expect:
-Protection against ultra violet light, environmental pollution and free radicals
-Reverses skin damage with high amounts of anti-oxidants
-Effective for reducing and preventing wrinkles
-Improvement of hydration
-Reduces brown spots
-Ensures even skin tone
-Helps in the formation of collagen
-Aids hormonal acne and eczema, dryness
-Increases blood flow
It really is unique, because it’s made up of smaller molecules to penetrate deep for delivery of active ingredients. You can use a small quantity both morning and night before applying your usual organic face cream. It’s even gentle enough for the under-eye area. The serums we carry at Paris Natural Foods have had five star reviews so far and keep flying off the shelf. They also contain oils that won’t clog pores such as avocado oil and rosehip. These are also crucial for collagen production, blood flow, healing rashes, along with those annoying spots we hate. I suggest choosing one with rosehip, as it is effective and incredibly rich in vitamin c. Yes, INCREDIBLY.
Let me sidetrack a bit here…
I’m always preaching about the application of oils simply because by doing so, your skin won’t produce so much sebum. I’ve written about this before and I want to repeat it because it should never be taken lightly if you’re serious about creating healthy skin. There are consequences to going for a skin product that is oil-free and I don’t recommend it. However, I’ll admit that the only exception is aloe vera gel or aloe aid(but those are mostly for burns and minor scars) and even then, you’ll still have to dab on some oil or moisturizing cream afterwards. Never skip a day, just be persistent. By doing this it creates a barrier on top of the skin to keep all the nutrients in. Seriously ask yourself how else are you supposed to keep from drying out? I’m talking all year, not just the winter. The one and only difference is that there are appropriate oils to use for the winter and others to use in the summer, but I’ll explain that in another blog. This is a very easy concept to understand in order to choose the best serums and creams. The ones that nourish NEED to contain oils, vitamins, and perhaps a tiny bit of essential oils such as lavender and frankincense for anti-inflammatory properties.
Now I’ll get back on track and at this point, I know what you’re possibly thinking….why not just buy one kind of oil then? Why should I bother with the serum now that you’ve mentioned the importance of oils?
Those are really good questions, and I’m going to give you a few reasons.
Number one: A blend of nutrients
When you go to a health food store and expect to resolve all kinds of problems, a wise idea would be to buy a variety of healthy food and supplements, not just one of each. You shouldn’t expect amazing results in all areas with very few options. The omega-3s, multivitamins and probiotics are very important…you need to work with it in your diet too right? Your skin reacts the same way and vitamin C serum is one of the best products to include in your routine. We need to embrace the fact that balance is key and create a blend of nutrients in order to prevent deficiency in most elements. Using vitamin C serum with the perfect combination of ingredients to boost antioxidant properties is at the top of the list for quenching that thirst, which then puts oxidative stress to a halt. The side effects include fine lines that vanish and then you become confident and limitless!
Number two: Give the positive an even bigger boost
Assuming that you use the correct moisturizer or oil alone, this special serum intends to boost the hydrating effects of it without clogging pores and creating that greasy feel most of us loathe. I hear it all the time, “I don’t want my face to be oily though…” Well neither do I, that’s why applying the right serum beforehand is essential for going about your day. The goal is to have that penetration, the protective barrier which creates soft skin. .
Number three: A quick fix
We all may need to improve eating habits right? It doesn’t take long to understand that, even as a health nut, we can’t completely avoid junk at all costs. Sometimes it’s right in your face, you’re starving and at that point it’s you’re only focus to give in and within a short period of time, the skin shows its hate through breakouts in return, dryness or maybe a rash. Realistically, there is a price to pay for everything and what you put in, that’s what you get back-but don’t panic! The truth is, we can use this to our advantage and if you make it a big deal, it only gets worse. The great news is vitamin C serum gives you hope and can be a fast solution to topical healing. The best thing you can do is set aside the worries, wash your hands, and put on a few drops of magic. Who doesn’t desire more collagen anyways?
You want to look and feel your best, and your physical form is a mirror of how you feel about you, what you feed your body, as well as what’s slathered on topically. Balance, remember? We take vitamin C internally and most people know of its benefits on health, so why not put it on your face? On the plus side, aren’t you tired of slathering on that cover-up and concealer? Solve the issues instead of masking them. Go back to the top and memorize the list of benefits stated. You have nothing to lose, a positive outlook to gain, and your skin will fall in love!
Well, that’s it for today. Thanks for reading and until next time beautiful!
