Shop Vitamin C Skincare and Vitamin C Serum at Clean Beauty House
I've outlined the top reasons you should add a vitamin C serum to your skincare routine, but before I dive in, here are a few caveats.
1. Treat the Vitamin C serum as a treatment product to be applied prior to your oily serums or moisturizers. You don't want to lather your face with this serum, you just need 3-6 drops to treat blemishes, dark spots and enhance collagen production. This will help you use it in a more targeted way and also make the bottle last longer.
2. Don't forget to apply this serum to your neck if you have an aging décolleté and/or are over 40. Women over 40 need to address their neck tissues the same as their facial skin. Our rough guideline is to address the neck for women over 40, but everyone ages differently so check-in with what your skin needs.
3. If you like what you read, do purchase the serum soon because rumour has it, Etymologie may take out the beautiful Neroli essential oil this serum is scented with. Although this is likely a good move to allow those with sensitivities to use it, we absolutely love the scent of Neroli in it. Hopefully they won't change it, but you never know, so if you love Neroli as much as we do, make sure to shop this batch!
Now let's get into the 5 reasons you should use the Etymologie Probiotic Vitamin C serum!
Vitamin C Serum Offers Daily Pollution Protection
On a daily basis we are exposed to UV light and pollution, which causes oxidative damage to the skin leading to inflammation, collagen breakdown and hyper-pigmentation. In order to protect ourselves from these harmful, highly unstable free radicals caused by UV and pollution exposure, we turn to antioxidants. Vitamin C is one of the most powerful antioxidants that has proven efficacy as an antioxidant, and has been studied for decades. Etymologie uses THD ascorbate which is oil soluble and highly stable, therefore will remain fresh in your serum and will readily absorb into the skin. From there it is then converted to L-Ascorbic Acid (the active form of Vitamin C) to help combat the damage caused by UV and pollution exposure and work it’s high-performance magic on your skin.
Vitamin C Serum Brightens The Skin & Corrects Tone
If you have hyper-pigmentation from acne scarring, also known as post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation, Vitamin C is an excellent tool for skin brightening and correcting because it inhibits the production of melanin in the skin. The Etymologie Probiotic Vitamin C serum contains a 15% concentration of Vitamin C as it has been shown to significantly reduce long-term dark spots in just 3 months. After just 1 month of usage at this concentration of Vitamin C, you will see major improvements in scarring, and that any pigmentation from new spots disappears much faster.
Vitamin C + Probiotic Serum Enhances Your Skin’s Microbiome
Just like your gut, your skin’s microbiome is a clear indicator of your skin’s health and we strongly believe you should take both a topical and ingestible daily probiotic. A diverse microbiome of the right strains of bacteria is essential to maintaining the skin’s moisture barrier, that helps protect the skin from harmful pathogens and to reduces inflammation. This all-natural serum contains a vegan probiotic called Lactobacillus, which is highly stable and maintains its viability throughout the production process so you’re getting live, healthy bacteria delivered directly to the skin for the most effective results.
Vitamin C Skincare Promotes Collagen Production
Collagen is the main protein molecule found in your skin and is responsible for maintaining its structure and giving your skin a plump, youthful appearance! Vitamin C is essential for collagen synthesis and is thus a powerful weapon in your anti-ageing toolkit. It is an absolutely necessary component for the enzymes responsible for collagen synthesis to do their job. With regular usage, our team noticed plumper skin, fewer wrinkles, and a youthful appearance in our skin. This product is our top recommendation for enhancing collagen production.
A Natural Serum For Sensitive Skin that Pairs With Everything
Depending on your skin type or condition you can use the Probiotic Vitamin C Serum alone or combined with other products. Even though very gentle at a 15% concentration, this serum is very powerful, and so we sometimes mix it with our Living Libations Rose Glow Serum to slow down the delivery of the antioxidant to the skin. You can also use this serum with other active ingredients in your regime, such as the Province Apothecary Toner or retinol based serum like the Graydon Full moon serum without issue, or simply add a drop or 2 to your cream moisturizer for some added benefit (we love the Living Libations Rose Glow Creme for added anti-aging benefits).Shop Etymologie at Clean Beauty House & receive a free bottle of hand sanitizer completely free with purhcase.
