18 Nov Vitamin C Serum, “C”ing Results Your Skin Care Toolbox 101
Vitamin C Serum, for over 20 years has been a popular ingredient available in a wide variety of skin care products. Scientists and beauty editors agree: the topical use of Vitamin C can be quite beneficial to our skin, promoting that fresh and youthful look that we all crave. A highly effective antioxidant, Vitamin C Serum inhibits free radical damage while building collagen. It has been shown to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, while increasing volume and firmness. Furthermore, Vitamin C Serum gently lightens hyperpigmentation (dark spots) for a more radiant and even toned complexion. It’s no wonder that this power tool of the beauty industry has found its way into cosmetic bags worldwide. It’s available in just about any form imaginable; powders, gels, creams, lotions, serums and masks. Price points range from drug store deals to diva decadence. With the extensive array of Vitamin C serum products in the market place, choosing the best one for that optimal glow can be tricky, so let’s take a closer look.
While Vitamin C Serum is a must have in your skin care regimen, think of it as that Little Black Dress that calls out for a bit of accessorizing. NCN Vitamin C+ Serum addresses this issue in its latest formulation. Vitamin C (in the form of L-Ascorbic Acid) is by nature a temperamental property, thus it needs assistance to be beneficial to your skin. By far, the most stable and effective delivery system for C is Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (MAP). It is important to understand that MAP is a gentle form of C. NCN’s Vitamin C+ Serum will work to brighten and illuminate the complexion while maintaining hydration and elasticity. For those of you who have sensitive skin, (as I do), don’t hesitate to use this serum daily to address those pesky “age spots” that may plague mature complexions.
NCN Vitamin C+ Serum contains other significant components that make it a standout. Yours truly was especially intrigued by the addition of Glutathione, which has been called the “mother of all antioxidants”, the most important molecule that your skin needs to stay healthy and prevent aging! Equally exciting was my discovery that Ferulic Acid and Vitamin E play exceptionally well with C, each one supporting the other in battling free radicals, promoting collagen growth and refreshing the complexion. Thanks Nanci, for putting it all together for us in one dynamic recipe.
Sometimes selecting the perfect skin care products can become downright intimidating. Here at NCN we strive to make your healthy complexion our first priority. Follow this new “Toolbox” series as we discover how easy it is to become your most beautiful you at any age.
