Vitamin C is fast becoming a vital beauty ingredient that injects instant radiance into the complexion. With antioxidant and positive ageing benefits adding the vitamin to a daily skincare routine can help even skin tone, protect skin from the visible impact of pollution and keep it looking younger and plumper. It is probably of little surprise then that Spa Technologies UK bestselling product is their Vitamin C Serum.
It is a well-known fact that the weather plays havoc with our skin. As we all battle to work, in a heat known to most of us for only a fortnight a year in another country, we are reminded to apply liberal lashings of SPF, but SPF alone is not the answer. For skin to be protected from sun and pollution a daily antioxidant should be used in combination with a sunscreen.
Equally in the colder months when skin is looking more lacklustre than luscious and instant radiance is required then look no further than this product as it is designed to alleviate problems both before and after they occur.
This unique combination consists of powerful Botanical Extracts alongside two forms of Vitamin C in a clinically significant quantity designed to positively impact the skin.
Vitamin C Ester is a highly differentiated fat soluble substance that, when added to a serum, acts as a moisture locking agent allowing maximum hydration and brightening of the complexion therefore plumping and hydrating instantly whilst decreasing puffiness.
The Seaweed and Antioxidants that form the base of this serum stimulate collagen synthesis and strengthen connective tissue matrix so in essence are acting as building blocks for skin repair and regeneration.
Traditional Vitamin C compound (Ascorbic Acid) within the serum lightens hyper-pigmentation, calms rosacea and has a healing effect on acne prone skin. Ascorbic Acid minimises UV damage caused by free radicals and protects from oxidative damage too.
Finally, the Shea Butter content heals minor blemishes, hydrates fine lines and its Vitamin A content boosts Retinol production.
I love using this product. After cleansing at night time, just a small amount of this serum is necessary to blend over the face and neck, leaving it feeling perfectly night-time ready to work on your skin while you sleep. The serum is not tested on animals and has a six month lifespan.
