How Vitamin C Benefits The Skin

Dermatologists recommend using Vitamin C for good reason: it attacks the signs of premature aging on every front.

4 Skincare Benefits Of Vitamin C:

  1. Preventing premature aging - as an antioxidant, it prevents or reduces the damage to our cells by neutralizing free radicals such as UV Rays and pollution. This can help prevent signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.
  2. Increasing radiance - Its antioxidant properties also help your skin to naturally regenerate and repair itself, giving you that glow this powerhouse ingredient is famous for.
  3. Improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles - Vitamin C is also acidic. Its low pH triggers your skin to produce more collagen and elastin, the naturally-occurring protein fibers that help keep skin plump and firm.
  4. Improves the look of dark spots - Vitamin C not only helps the skin repair itself, it also inhibits melanin production, improving the look of existing dark spots while also working to prevent new ones from forming.

Do I Need To Use Moisturizer With Face Oil?

While our Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil is an incredibly versatile brightening product, it doesn’t replace moisturizer.

A quick crash course in moisturizers vs. face oils: moisturizers hydrate by pulling water into the skin, while facial oils add nourishment and seal in moisture. Using a facial oil alone is like eating food but never drinking water. You’ll survive, but you’ll be very thirsty.

Almost all skin types benefit from using both moisturizer and facial oils together. When you pair a water-based moisturizer with a nourishing, non-comedogenic facial oil, you’re ensuring that your skin stays hydrated and nourished all day long. This also helps to fortify the moisture barrier, helping ward off the damaging effects of environmental stressors such as bacteria and pollution. 

The result: healthy, hydrated, skin that appears plumper, smoother, and more radiant.Learn more about the difference between moisturizer vs. face oilHand holding Full size bottle of Vitamin C Rose Oil
