Vitamin C has long been known as an essential nutrient to promote normal cell function, boost your immune system and ward off illness. But did you know that this important, water-soluble vitamin can be just the thing to keep you glowing and healthy on the outside? Incorporating serums, moisturizers and other products with vitamin C into your daily skincare routine can completely revitalize your complexion. We’re sharing how to use our Vitamin C Day Cream to step up your skincare game.
The Benefits of Vitamin C for the Skin
Vitamin C has a rolodex of properties that can benefit the skin and bring out your best appearance with regular use. It is a powerful antioxidant that helps prevent premature aging and wrinkles caused by free radical damage from UV rays and air pollution.
This vitamin also stimulates the production of collagen and boosts elasticity, which keeps skin plump and youthful. There is also evidence in research published by the National Institutes of Health that suggests vitamin C is a brightening agent that blocks the creation of melanin to help reduce dark spots and hyperpigmentation without altering your skin tone.
How to Use Daily Vitamin C Moisturizer
Make the most out of your vitamin C skincare routine with these helpful tips:
Use It Twice a Day
While you should definitely apply your Cosmedica Skincare’s Vitamin C Facial Day Cream in the morning after cleansing and toning, it can also be helpful to use again at night for more noticeable results.
Although vitamin C offers natural protection against the sun’s rays, you should always add a second layer of defense by applying an SPF after your day cream.
Adjust Your Routine
Depending on the steps in your skincare routine; you may want to reconsider how your moisturizer fits into it. For instance, if you use benzoyl peroxide as an acne treatment, you might opt to incorporate it in your nighttime regimen instead. Some other products like benzoyl peroxide can reduce the potency of your Vitamin C Day Cream when used together.
Additionally, vitamin C may sting a little when used with exfoliating scrubs so consider also using this product on alternating days or adjusting your schedule.
Store It Properly
Like any product, vitamin C’s effectiveness can be impacted by its environment. Be sure to store your Cosmedica Skincare’s Vitamin C Facial Day Cream in a dark, cool space. Because vitamin C is light sensitive, we use opaque, airtight packaging to preserve its efficacy.
Day creams provide lightweight moisture that can last all day without causing you to feel too oily or weighed down. When you supplement your skincare routine with the benefits of a daily moisturizer with the power of active ingredients like Vitamin C, you can even reveal a more radiant appearance. Our Vitamin C Facial Day Cream offers well-rounded moisture through jojoba and shea butter with a boost of antioxidants to protect the skin and combat the effects of aging.
