We all know that vitamin C is essential for our overall health. It’s particularly effective at preparing the body for and protecting it from colds and flush. It’s an excellent antioxidant. What though can it do for our skin? Eating plenty of foods high in vitamin c will help your skin retain elasticity, protect it from free radicals and keep that youthful glow.
Applying C topically can intensify and accelerate the restorative and protective attributes of this nutrient on the skin. When I started using Mystelic’s C Serum I was only using it at night. Then I read a Dr. Oz article that recommended using it in the morning after a thorough cleansing to benefit from vitamin c’s sun protecting properties. So I started using it in the morning too. Why twice? At night I figured the serum would have uninterrupted time to help form collagen, repair damage and lighten the few age spots on my face as well as acne fighting. Then paired with my sun protective makeup again in the morning I was ready to face the day. Using the serum too often can lead to irritation and peeling, so start with one daily application and work your way up to two.
According to the Dr. Oz article it would take up to 8 weeks of continuous usage to see full results. Using a Vitamin C Serum or lotion was recommended in place of undergoing laser treatments or chemical peels! He even said that using a topical C treatment could be more effective and less damaging in addition to being much, much cheaper.
Mystelic Beauty Nature’s Best Vitamin C Serum is available in a one ounce dark brown glass container with a dropper. For shipment the dropper is wrapped separately. I was rather surprised they sent it to me wrapped in a little bubble wrap bag in a padded envelope instead of a box, but it arrived ok.
