Today we’re diving deep into an ingredient that is a must-have in any skincare routine! Can you guess it?! If you said Vitamin C, then you’re right! The reason it’s gaining popularity over the last several years is because it works SO incredibly well. And with all these days spent at home, what better time to talk about skincare and self care?! 😉
Before we dive in, I’m going to tell you the difference between two common, but different, skincare products:
SERUMS VS. FACE OILS:
Serums: lighter weight, layered under moisturizer, formulated to target specific skincare concerns. Clean Beauty says “their molecules are very small, so they absorb deeply in the skin to achieve a desired result: skin brightening, balancing, pigmentation, moisture-barrier repair…”. Because of the small molecules, they can deliver antioxidants and peptides very effectively.
Facial Oils: the ultimate purpose of an oil is to provide extra hydration our skin needs so badly. They are like big glasses of water for our skin! Oils are “particularly effective because they mimic our skin’s natural sebum production”. (source) Face oils will also help strengthen the skin barrier, give our skin that beautiful natural glow and help your makeup go on smoothly.
Beautycounter uses incredibly powerful, safe and & effective ingredients!
A LITTLE ABOUT VITAMIN C:
Ingredients matter so much, not just in terms of safety but also in the deliverable: good ingredients yield amazing results. This new serum is further proof that you don’t need toxic chemicals for a skincare product to be powerful! I admit that I was slightly skeptical about this serum. I’ve had a dark spot on my cheek for probably 2 years now. In just 4 applications of this, I promise you I see the dark spot lightening slightly each day!
Bonus: most Vitamin C products (that are any good!) can be closer to the $200 range, so our under $100 price point makes me super happy, and of course, it’s safe, which a lot of the serums are the market are not.
HOW TO APPLY
30 DAY CHALLENGE:I’m going to be using this for 30 days (already 2 weeks in) and continue use of my favorite Resurfacing Peel at night 3-4 times per week at night (read more about that here!). I’ll be sure to report my results to you on Instagram! I have a couple dark spots on my face; the largest of which is on my cheek, followed by some on my upper lip area and my forehead. The spots on my forehead are barely noticeable now, my lip has faded drastically and I can see the spot on my cheek starting to lighten as well. I’m so excited!!
