Many ingredients can contribute to the health of your skin and I’m really excited about those of Vitamin C for skin. Well studied and well documented, the benefits of the little anti-aging superstar are undisputed!



Also known as L-ascorbic acid, Vitamin C is found in a variety of food and used as a dietary supplement. But, it also packs a powerful punch when it comes to skin. If you haven’t considered topical Vitamin C for skin wellness yet, it’s something you may want to think about. Here are 5 proven benefits of topical Vitamin C for skin that will leave you fresh, youthful and glowing:

  1. Antioxidant Protection. As an antioxidant, Vitamin C helps to protect skin against damage caused by free radicals, unstable molecules which can wreak havoc to skin cells. Free radicals can be generated upon exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light or pollution. Vitamin C acts as a shield to minimize their disruption.
  2. Protection Against Sun Damage. Although not a sunscreen, Vitamin C limits the damage caused by exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light. It does this through its antioxidant activity, by neutralizing free radicals. Although Vitamin C alone can provide photoprotection, it works best in conjunction with Vitamin E, which increases the action of Vitamin C four-fold.
  3. Boosts Collagen Synthesis. (Bye Bye Wrinkles!). Vitamin C is essential for the synthesis of collagen, a protein which forms part of the skin’s structural framework.
  4. Fights Hyperpigmentation. Vitamin C falls disrupts the synthesis of melanin, which is responsible for skin’s colouring. This makes it a useful agent in treating age spots, melasma and brightening the skin tone.
  5. Anti-Inflammatory Agent. Vitamin C has anti-inflammatory activity and can be used in conditions like acne vulgaris and rosacea. It has been shown to promote wound healing and prevent post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Vitamin C treatments are best applied in the morning when they offer protection from daily assaults.

Love, love, love!

I've only been using this serum for a couple of weeks and the difference in my skin is already noticeable. I have very sensitive skin and didn't have any irritation. I was able to use it daily from day 1. Love this product! It's going to be a staple in my arsenal from now on.

Works good but..

I have been using this deodorant for a couple weeks now and it works very well to keep door at bay. However it dries sticky and when I sweat it gets even more sticky. I will keep using fur a while to see if I can get past the sticky feeling, but not sure if I can. It’s too bad because it really does work.

Terrible Rash

This worked for a few weeks and I started getting a painful red rash under my arms. I was about to purchase a set of 4 and I’m glad that I didn’t. I reached out to the company to inquire about what could have caused this as they claim to have products that don’t cause rashes. Of course no one ever replied. Will not purchase again

My new fave

This cream is my new fave. It's moisturizing without being greasy and absorbs well. The scent is crisp and clean without being overpowering. My husband and son have started using it and love it too! Might need another one to keep by the kitchen sink.
