It's the time of year when we all could use more glow. Historically, winter skin is dull and dry, which means winterizing your skincare routine is essential to promote dewey soft and supple skin all winter long.
This is the time to make the switch: put aside your l-ascorbic acid vitamin C serum and switch to a fatty-based ester C serum.
Why do we need a daily vitamin C serum?
This amazing ingredient plays an important role in preventing visible signs of photoaging -- and there is decades of research on the results! As a potent antioxidant, it helps quench free radicals formed by UV, pollution, blue light (HEV) and infrared (IRA) damage.
The Benefits of a Vitamin C Serum:
- Encourages a firmer, lifted feel to the skin and helps reduce the look of lines and wrinkles.
- Anti-tyrosinase effect inhibits melanogenesis and promotes an even tone, addresses sun damage and discolorations.
Why switch to ester C?
1. Fatty-based vitamin C is hydrating to the skin.
Potent and stable vitamin C esters deliver optimal protection against UV, redness, fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation, all while soothing the skin with light fatty acids that improve hydration and suppleness.
2. They're pH neutral and promote calm skin.
In the winter months, dry or dehydrated skin is more susceptible to irritation from low pH or acidic serums. Unlike traditional l-ascorbic acid, ester C formulations are pH neutral and suitable for all skin types, including dry skin and sensitive skin.
