IS YOUR VITAMIN C SERUM RIGHT FOR YOUR SKIN

by Nubess Stories on June 11, 2020

It's the vitamin that we all know since we were children for its role in immunity for our good health, but vitamin C is so much more: It's also vital for our skin and scalp health.

It is vital in skin health as it repairs cells and tissues and it is an antioxidant, which means it protects cells from scavenging free radicals and harmful effects of air pollution and UV radiation and ultimately, from the aging process. Free radicals increase when we’re exposed to things like cigarette smoke which it neutralizes to slow down signs of aging. vitamin C is involved in collagen production, which is found in all connective tissue throughout the body.

 As consuming anti-oxidant rich food aids your body in fighting off free radicals, similarly topically vitamin C does the same for your skin by helping to fight daily aggressors like exposure to pollution, UV damage and repairs cell damage and keeps your skin healthy. Studies even suggest vitamin C can help to prevent trans-epidermal water loss, which is the evaporation of water from the outermost layer of our skin. 

 Unfortunately, as we age, vitamin C declines much like collagen and so does our skin elasticity. Hence vitamin C should be incorporated in our daily skincare routine to combat this natural reduction and fight premature aging. 

 A small scale study results that applying even a minimum 5% vitamin C solution for 6 months helped increase skin thickness compared with a placebo solution. Thicker, collagen-rich skin is less likely to show wrinkling than thinner skin.

 A serum is a skin care products designed to deliver high concentrations of powerful ingredients in thin silky texture. There is a catch though, vitamin C is very difficult to formulate since its prone to oxidation in contact with heat, light, air, and needs to be pH balanced to work efficiently. Once oxidized vitamin C is no longer effective. This means you'll want to choose the right type of vitamin C serum to get the most potent formula which is value for your money.

 Vitamin C: L ascorbic acid is the most stable and effective form of vitamin C. Pure ascorbic acid penetrates skin barrier easily as it's formulated in a water-oil based serum so the skin absorbs it quickly. This high performance rejuvenating vitamin works perfectly to repair, improve uneven skin tone and texture, and boost hydration in combination with Vitamin B2, hyaluronic acid and, alpha-hydroxy acids. This lightweight serum assists in collagen production, reduce water loss, minimize inflammation and puffiness to reveal brighter and healthy youthful skin.

Sodium Hyaluronate: Has the ability to bind 1000 times its own weight in water and this form of hyaluronic acid is more stable and due to its smaller to the larger molecular size which ensures penetration into multiple skin layers. It serves as a water reservoir helping to regulate the moisture content in the skin and helps to maintain a healthy skin barrier that prevents trans-epidermal water loss. Thus soothing dry, flaky skin making it supple smooth. It provides structure and volume adding to skin plumpness keeping skin renewed dewy and nourished.

Vitamin E: Increases the stability and effectiveness of vitamin C and helps to doubly protect from signs of aging and free radical damage. It enhances the nutrient delivery targeted to the skin and regenerates the activity of antioxidant skin benefits. vitamin E works on the lipid fraction of cells whereas vitamin C works on moisture level as it's a water-soluble vitamin. vitamin C+ adds more value as a serum that envelops skin in a protective shield. This safeguards from, infrared radiation and ozone pollution, which can all contribute to visible signs of aging and acts as a defense from photo-damage. 

Polyphenols: They are secondary metabolites of plants and protect vitamin E oxidation and regenerate oxidized vitamin E. It has the ability to combat cell damage caused by free radicals, speeds up cell reproduction, and works as a good defense against ultraviolet radiation. 

Crystals: These tinctures are prepared by the alchemical technique that supercharges the serum to deliver it's therapeutic healing effects. It works by enhancing microcirculation that helps the product to deeply nourish the skin, penetrate the actives at the cellular level, amplifying its results. As well as help you improve skin elasticity to preserve and achieve a more youthful glow.

Flower essences (Fes):  There is a direct relation between emotion and skin. Emotional problems manifest as physical skin problems like sensitive skin, acne, premature aging, hyper-pigmentation. As flowers are part of the emerging field of subtle energy medicine that improves emotional well being and mind-body health. They have gentle restorative and regenerative healing ability that helps to awaken healing forces of the etheric body, harmonize balance and rejuvenate the spirit thereby healing skin.

Electrolytes: They conduct electricity when mixed with water and are essentials to the function of the skin. So they allow the skin to retain more hydration and quench dull, dry skin by providing extra moisture and optimize their cellular functions. as well as help to boost the efficiency of other bioactive. Electrolytes exhibit anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial properties that help to promote healthy skin, heal acne, zits, improve skin texture, plump up, and rebalance your skin.

Pantothenic acid: Helps to maintain the skin barrier, prevents moisture loss from your skin and enhances the hydration level of your skin so as to remain soft and maintain elasticity.

It boosts the production of glutathione in your skin that inhibits melanin formation and minimizes the appearance of dark spots on the skin.

CoQ10: It's a powerful anti-oxidant vital for energy production in cells as well as to repair the damage caused due to UV and environmental pollution that causes our skin to age faster. It makes our cells healthy by helping our cells rid of toxins and protects the skin at the molecular level from damages effect of UV rays and free radicals. Mainly it helps to block tyrosinase enzyme which helps with the production of melanin thus helps to fade dark spots.

Alpha hydroxy acids: They help clarify skin by gently removing skin discoloration and exfoliating dull dead skin by targeting surface skin whereas BHAs (beta hydroxy acids) unclogs skin pores. This ingredient enhances the results of vitamin C, as they help prep skin for better absorption of active botanicals by clearing dead cells it increases the rate of higher penetration, together they help to lower the skin pH which absorbs best at lower pH and heightens its efficacy.

Vitamin B2: It acts as a facilitator to enzyme reactions that activate other vitamin benefits to your skin. Due to its healing ability, this micronutrient is added in composition to counteract signs of aging, acne, hyper-pigmentation, skin dryness, sun damage. These powerful vitamins work together to energize and rebalance skin, decongest clogged pores, and banishes breakouts. 

How to correctly store Vitamin c + Serum

To keep your vitamin C from losing its efficacy and degrading it's important to store in a cool dry place.

 Keep it away from Light: vitamin C is vulnerable to oxidation from light exposure. That's why they come in opaque dark glass bottles. Keep it stored in a cool dark place.

 Keep the Lid tightly closed: Contact with oxygen breaks down the vitamin C serum. Ensure too reseal the lid after every use and minimize how long you keep it open so as to prevent air from seeping in.

 Keep it Cool: vitamin C will degrade at high temperatures. Hence keep it in a cool place and not in the bathroom as it will be humid with fluctuating temperatures.

This formula has good bio-availability and penetration delivery which releases the formula gradually so you get all-day protection from free radicals and premature aging. This is dermatologist tested and approved, allergy tested, hypoallergenic, non-irritating, non-drying, non-comedogenic, free of fragrance, dyes, parabens, and gluten and has not been tested on animals but with any good skincare essentials have to be used consistently to see visible results.
