Why You Should Be Using Vitamin C

Bottom line: Vitamin C serum helps reverse and prevent signs of aging, keeps skin firm and youthful, and protects from UV rays. Invest in a bottle. Now.vitamin-c-district-sparkle-meaghan-moynahan-1

I didn’t start using Vitamin C on my skin until about 6 months ago and it’s made all the difference in the world. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve noticed my skin is less radiant and just looks more ragged. How joyous.  A friend mentioned that she had been using this Vitamin C serum for a few weeks and was loving the results so I decided to give it a try. I’ve had such amazing results with this serum that it will be one of those products that is forever in my medicine cabinet. I put on a dime sized amount before my morning moisturizer every day and as a result my skin is much brighter and more boosted.

Because Vitamin C serum helps protect your skin from free radicals, most dermatologists have recommended applying it in the morning to prevent damage during the day but since UV damage continues throughout the day, I use a serum at night, as well. My nighttime serum is more concentrated since my skin won’t see sunlight.
No matter when you wear Vitamin C serums, make sure to never use it within a few hours of salicylic acid, glycolic acid, or retinol to avoid burning, stinging, and redness.

I highly recommend visiting your local Bluemercury store or trying out some of the Vitamin C serums I’ve listed below to kick start your newest skin obsession.
