[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Sure, we take Vitamin C vitamins or drink orange juice when we’re feeling under the weather for an added immune system boost, but if you aren’t slathering this stuff on your face, you’re missing out on one of the best benefits of Vitamin C.
A powerful antioxidant, Vitamin C is an essential component in the body’s production of collagen (the stuff that keeps your skin looking firm and youthful) and has the ability to rejuvenate aged and photo-damaged skin by combating collagen degradation and oxidative stress.
Our bodies are incapable of producing Vitamin C on their own making it vital we get the nutrient from food sources. In extreme cases, when our bodies lack Vitamin C, things can get ugly (ahem, scurvy anyone?)
Results from clinical trials show when applied topically, Vitamin C serum promotes collagen formation and mitigates the effects of free radicals, helping to maintain firm, radiant and youthful skin.
We love Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Vitamin C+ Serum. Made with micro-algae oil for intense hydration and a Vitamin C derivative, it reduces sun spots, dullness and smooths fine lines. The lightweight texture absorbs quickly and leaves skin feeling silky and smooth. This serum is powerful and we here at BOND EN AVANT noticed brighter skin within days. Who doesn’t love instant results?!
