Every day our skin is exposed to multiple challenges both from the outside and inside. Harsh weather, air pollution, bad habits such as smoking, lack of sleep, or unhealthy diet all combined with the eventual aging processes negatively affect the health and appearance of the skin. Healthy, good looking skin has not only esthetic value, but it is a functional protective barrier against various harmful threats, while proper and effective skin care is one of the easiest ways to ensure the long-term health and radiance of the skin.
The specific combination of essential vitamins and powerful botanicals in Vitamin C Botanicals Skin Serum provides natural support for maintaining healthy looking skin, restoring its healthy appearance, improving hydration, and providing nourishment and protection to encourage firmer, brighter, and youthful-looking skin. This product is paraben and sulfate-free, and contains no artificial dyes or fragrances. It is also vegan and cruelty-free.
The Key Benefits of Vitamin C Botanicals Skin Serum:
Foundation for Healthy Skin. Topical application of vitamin C is the basis of many skin care routines. Vitamin C supports collagen production which is crucial for maintaining a firm, smooth skin appearance and repairing skin damage. Its effects can be enhanced when also taken internally as a supplement complex with lysine and proline – a trio known as collagen “boosters.” The synthesis of collagen, hyaluronic acid and keratohyalin by skin cells is also supported by MSM, an organic form of sulfur which is important for body structure and function. MSM is easily absorbed by the skin and promotes skin repair, a smooth appearance, and reduces puffiness and discoloration.
Hydration and Smoothness. The botanical hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and jojoba oil deliver intense hydrating and soothing effects for all skin types. Vegetable glycerin has moisturizing power improving skin smoothness and suppleness, and safeguards from the irritation of environmental stressors such as wind and cold. Jojoba oil may also help regulate sebum production as it is very similar to the sebum that our body produces naturally. It seals moisture in the skin without clogging pores or exacerbating acne. This keeps the skin from looking oily and helps prevent acne caused by clogged pores.
Soothing and Anti-inflammatory Protection. Horsetail, geranium and dandelion extracts offer a wide spectrum of antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties which benefit in fighting acne and healing rashes and irritation. In addition, horsetail is a rich source of silica which is important for optimal collagen synthesis and, as an astringent it tightens skin pores. Due to its antioxidant properties it can help slow skin aging and provide photoprotective effects and improve wound healing. Dandelion extract can help reduce fine lines and tone unbalanced skin. It has detoxifying properties that rid the skin of toxins that clog pores and cause acne. Together with vitamins C and E it supports the skin’s natural healing processes reducing the appearance of scars and skin inflammation.
Improved Nourishment. Proper blood circulation is important for healthy function and appearance of the skin by providing vital oxygen and nourishment to all skin cells. Gotu kola is well known for its ability to improve blood circulation. This accelerates the skin healing processes and reduces the appearance of broken capillaries. It is rich in antioxidants and also helps fight off free radicals, while triterpene saponins aid in keeping the skin tighter and firmer.
Restoration of Skin Damage. Vitamin E assists in various kinds of cellular restoration from sun damage to healing of scars or burns. Vitamin E together with vitamin C, botanical hyaluronic acid and other plant extracts promote strengthening of skin barrier function and provide moisturizing and healing benefits.
Brightening and Toning. Vitamin C can help in preventing the formation of dark spots, e.g., sun and/or age spots and correcting existing spots. It can decrease production of pigment (melanin) and contribute to antioxidant protection thereby enhancing the natural radiance of the skin.
