Vitamin C for your skin

Hey sun bunnies! Here's an easy way to manage the damage you get this summer. Apply Vitamin C under your daily sunscreen and self tan at night for a healthy, skin kissed glow without the damage! (If you're going to tan your face anyway *sigh* then use Vitamin C to "manage the damage" lol)


I'm going to focus on Vitamin C in this post BECAUSE I have some Vitamin C to give away!!!! To enter the contest, comment on my blog, state your skin type (oily, dry, combination) and why you deserve to win. I will be giving away 1 Skinceuticals Phloretin and 1 Sanavi Cascading C Serum to the lucky winner!!! Thank you Skinceuticals and Sanavi for being so good to us!!!! ❤️ #gratitude
One of the ways that our skin keeps itself renewed and youthful looking is through the production of a protein called collagen. I'm sure you have heard of it. As we age, our skin just doesn't produce as much collagen as it did in our younger years. Less collagen = more signs of skin aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, etc... 
Vitamin C has been proven to support collagen synthesis BUT it has to be applied topically and in the correct molecular structure. If it's too big to penetrate deep enough, it sits on the surface and costs you a fortune, so choose wisely. 
Vitamin C has been shown to help:  
  • Calm skin
  • Brighten skin
  • Retain moisture without making you oily
  • Support the skin’s natural defenses against harmful UV damage
  • Enhancing healing (think post acne marks)
  • Stabilize Vitamin E
Info on the goodies:

Phloretin (Skinceuticals) is a superior Vitamin C product that works well on all skins, including oily skin. It has many more antioxidants than just Vitamin C alone, but it is heavy on the C. It is super potent and very effective. It's molecular structure dives deep into the skin allowing it to repair and correct damage where it's needed the most. It's also going to give more sun protection than sunscreen alone. Value $162

Sanavi Cascading C Serum is also a superior antioxidant cocktail heavy on the Vitamin C. It's molecular structure is a little larger, but still small enough to penetrate skin, allowing more sensitive skins to use it with no irritation. This one is more nourishing and ideal for dry, sensitive or intolerant skin. It's also going to protect you from the sun more than sunscreen alone and fight environmental damage. Value $85
