What a Bright time to be alive! Here’s the
Vitamin C your skin was craving for
By Carolina Malis
You’ve probably heard wonders about Vitamin C already, but have you actually tried it and seen its effect in real life? I feel like with Vitamin C is a matter of adding it to your routine to discover how much a miracle it is, because let me tell you, IT IS.
While some may think this godsend is only meant to brighten up skin, there’s much more to it than just that. Vitamin C is highly antioxidant, which helps fight the annoying free radicals; it also helps diminish the appearance of dark spots and protects the skin from UV damage. Yep, a true miracle. Now, you must be wondering: ok, but it can’t be that good. There must be a bad side to it, right? Well, yeah, there is. As this is such a delicate ingredient its shelf-life can be affected by many factors as it oxidizes really easily. From light to air or heat exposure, is really hard to keep Vitamin C serums in good condition for a long time.
I remember the very first time I tried a vitamin C serum, and how I freaked out when, after a couple of months, it started turning yellow - and I’ve heard from people who said there's turned brown or even red! But that's the deal about this holy grail, while it carries many perks, it needs constant care. During this oxidation process vitamin C loses some of its powers and some have even mentioned it causes dark spots on their skin, reason why keeping it on a dark, fresh place has turned into a solution for many.
But fear not, skincare lovers, because we’ve been blessed, as the beauty industry is always one step ahead of us and Neogen came out with the perfect solution for this problem: the Real Vita C Powder, and yes, just as you read, it’s vitamin C in powder format.
While powder Vitamin C is not a new thing, this one in particular is formulated in a whole new way. Besides all the perks you already get from it, this DIY powder form of vitamin C supercharges products you already have in your skincare routine in order to make them stronger. You can mix it into any of your skincare products and use it anywhere in your routine: it will be just as powerful. Formulated with 17% ascorbic acid - AKA vitamin C - this powder helps brighten, protect and improve your skin’s texture and tone in matter on weeks.
Also as part of the mix, we find lemon extract, which also contains Vitamin C delivers soothing and nourishing benefits. Finally Allantoin, Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Collagen and Trehalose help hydrate skin for better absorptions and a dewy complexion. Wow, just… wow, right?
While I feel like I haven't been trying it for enough time as to say if it has changed my skin or not - although my complexion does look brighter and more even -, I can say it works way better and I see better effects whenever I mix it with a watery product (toner, essence or serum), but be careful! AHAs, BHAs, PHAs and retinol should not me mixed with it.
I feel like this is especially a great solution for traveling,. BEcause of all those factor I told you about before, traveling with vitamin C can be hard, but this powder will keep its benefits no matter how high on the sky, hot in the summer or cold in the snow you are.
