Vitamin C is an essential part of the skin’s defense system. It has a plethora of benefits, from anti-aging to color correcting, and skin strengthening to protection.
Here are five reasons to add a vitamin-c serum to your skincare routine:
1. Boosts Collagen Production
Vitamin-C has incredible regenerating properties. Dermatologist Howard Sobel of New York City explains the benefits of topically applying vitamin-c: “When vitamin C is used topically, the skin is triggered to heal itself by accelerating the production of collagen and elastin,". Collagen and elastin are both naturally occurring protein fibers that help keep skin plump and firm.
2. Protects Against Damage From Free Radicals
Vitamin-C is a proven to be one of the best natural defenses against free radical damage, particularly UV damage. As far as your skin is concerned, vitamin C is "a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals," explains board-certified dermatologist Patricia Wexler. Due to its antioxidant properties, vitamin-c aids in your skin's natural regeneration process, which helps your body repair damaged skin cells.
3. Reduces Dark Circles And Hyperpigmentation.
Another cool thing about vitamin-c is that it contains a property that prevents your skin's melanin production, which is what causes skin discoloration like dark spots and hyperpigmentation. With continued topical use, vitamin C can help prevent dark spots from forming to begin with, as well as gradually heal the skin thus reducing discoloration and hyperpigmentation.
4. Proven Anti-Aging Power
Vitamin C is an absolute staple in preventing and slowing the appearance of aging. Of course, existing signs of skin aging cannot be completely reversed. When we’re young, vitamin C levels in skin’s outermost two layers (epidermis and dermis) are abundant, but as we age, these levels naturally deplete. Incorporating vitamin-c in your skincare routine at a younger age will help slow the aging process of your skin by supplementing these levels. Luckily, vitamin c is also proven to reduce appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, too.
5. Hydrates and Brightens
Magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, one of the main vitamin C derivatives used in skin care, has been shown to have a hydrating effect on skin. It decreases trans-epidermal water loss, allowing your skin to better retain moisture. Vitamin C can also help fade pigmentation and smooth the skin’s surface to reduce dullness and give skin a youthful glow.

Serums are an important step in your skincare routine. Their molecular weight allows them to penetrate deep into the skins layer, so you reap the highest benefits of the ingredients. We knew a serum would be the next step in our skincare collection, but we wanted to make something unique, something that can have a dual purpose. Thus, the Vitamin-C Brightening Booster was created.
A serum that can be used alone, or as a booster to your favorite moisturizer or cream to add a powerful, nutrient rich punch. Powerful absorbic acid, pineapple enzymes, watermelon extract, and green tea extract team together to make an all natural uv-protecting, anti-aging, collagen stimulating, and complexion brightening elixir.
We hope you love it as much as we do.
