Get the Best Out of Your Vitamin C Serum: Tips & Benefits

We would all love a Holiday glow. And what better way to get it than a Vitamin C Serum that gives you all the benefits of Vitamin C and more? While you have your stops, shopping, and decorations planned, you can’t forget the best serum for your skincare routine this season. Find out how to get your best glow going by reading this article.

Why Would I Want a Vitamin C Serum?

Vitamin C or ascorbic acid has antioxidant properties helping the production of collagen synthesis. Collagen is a key molecule in keeping the skin young and healthy. We’ve known for quite a while that Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for our immunity against diseases. It’s a powerful antioxidant that we need for the repair of body tissues, including the skin. But because we cannot produce it on our own, we rely on fruits, vegetables, and drugstore skincare products such as toners, moisturisers, and of course, Vitamin C serums.

Can I Use Vitamin C Serum Every Day?

There’s no black and white rule against Vitamin C skincare less than 5 times a week. However, you’re more likely to get the most out of it when you incorporate your serum into your routine. Use it every day for the best results. If you inevitably subject yourself to UV radiation, apply it early in the morning before heading out. Just remember that it becomes less effective when you stay out too long. Therefore, you should allow it to absorb first.

More Doesn’t Mean Better

It’s also not true that the more Vitamin C you apply, the better your skin gets. Products with high concentration levels of L-Ascorbic acid can cause irritation. Germaine De Capuccini Vitamin C essence serums are gently formulated with a smoothing and hydrating emulsion for restoring luminosity and vitality. The pure and natural orange concentrate acts as your second ascorbic acid booster to provide maximum Vitamin C serum benefits. But without the harshness and irritation.

5 Benefits of Vitamin C Skincare

Statista records that the most preferred facial skin product ingredient in the U.S. alone during 2016 was Vitamin C followed by other fruit-based ingredients and probiotics. The numbers tell us that perhaps this particular ingredient has been doing something right to make people love it. What more can you expect from adding vitamin c to your skincare routine?

1. It’s hydrating

One of the main components of Vitamin C is magnesium ascorbyl phosphate is a proven skin hydrating power tool. It minimises moisture loss which is very important in warmer climates. One such product you can try for this type of hydration is our Vitamin C multi-correction emulsion. you’ll be protected from sun damage and notice a more nourished, hydrated, and supple skin within days of application

2. It’s the answer to hyperpigmentation woes

Hyperpigmentation including sun and age spots happen when there is an overproduction of melanin in certain areas of the skin. Sometimes, it also occurs in areas of your face and body where acne has healed. Applying Vitamin C serum or cream will help challenge and impede melanin production.

3. You get added sun protection

You’re already using SPF moisturisers and getting yourself  UV-protected by applying sunscreen every day. We know. But it won’t hurt to incorporate sun protection into your glow game and further prevent skin damage. This is just one of the best things about Vitamin C products. Additionally, it also boosts cell turnover which means you’re replacing damaged cells with healthier ones.

4. Reduces the Appearance of Under-eye Circles

While Vitamin C for the skin is mostly associated with reducing redness and fighting hyperpigmentation, experts swear by its ability to brighten the under-eye area. Eyebags no more.

5. It’s anti-ageing 

Collagen is the holy grail for almost all skincare, especially anti-ageing products. That’s because it’s responsible for skin elasticity, moisture, and firmness. When you reach a certain age beyond your 30s or 40s, your collagen level diminishes. With a Vitamin C serum, your collagen production boosts and you get to have tight, youthful skin all over.

To make sure you’re getting the best results and to prevent irritation, we suggest doing a skin analysis or getting a professional skin consultation. This will determine how your skin will react to the serum. If you have sensitive skin, go for those with pure Vitamin C derivatives and mild ingredients.

Ready to get glowing? We know you are, as you should.
