The Incredible Benefits of Vitamin C for Your Skin

 

Today is National Vitamin C Day, but we don’t need an excuse to talk about one of the most prized, iconic skincare ingredients on the market. Vitamin C is one of the most well-known, highly available skincare ingredients, for good reason. It’s brightening, antioxidant-rich, and renewing benefits for the skin are unmatched. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that plays a key role in promoting overall skin wellness. From brightening your complexion, to protecting against environmental stressors and free radical damage, the benefits of Vitamin C for your skin are vast, making it a hero ingredient to incorporate into your daily skincare ritual. 

Our Vitamin C Glow Drops are a powerful resurfacer, each citrus-infused drop is packed with clean actives to transform dull complexions and leave your skin balanced and visibly smoother. This innovative, fresh-pressed brightening serum delivers radiant, glass-like skin. 

 

 

Our Vitamin C Glow Drops are clinically proven to transform your skin. In a blind, clinical  study conducted with 100 consumers under a doctor's supervision, consumers experience incredible results:

  • 98% said skin looked brighter
  • 99% said skin felt more improved
  • 99% would recommend it to a friend
  • 100% said skin looked more glowy
  • 99% saw more radiance

Board Certified Dermatologist Dr. Alex Zeitany recommends Vitamin C Glow Drops saying, “This product contains 20% Vitamin C, one of the highest percentages on the market, Ferulic Acid which works synergistically to boost the antioxidant effect of Vitamin C, and Alpha Hydroxy Acids in the form of gentle citrus (like lemon, pink grapefruit) and that’s going to provide a light chemical exfoliation to the skin. What’s so special about this serum is its oil base, which is going to hydrate and nourish the skin and help restore your skin barrier while giving you antioxidant benefits to brighten the skin and visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Ideal even for those with sensitive skin.”

 


Vitamin C for Sensitive Skin: Our Solution

With Vitamin C being such an active ingredient, it is known to often irritate sensitive skin and be too harsh for some delicate complexions. When we developed our Vitamin C Glow Drops we wanted a serum that was able to deliver all of the incredible benefits of Vitamin C, but in a gentle way, suitable for all skin types. Even the most sensitive complexions.

For starters we use a potent, best-in-class 20% active Vitamin C that is encapsulated in Glycerin (think of it like your daily supplement!) which allows deeper absorption into the skin in a much more gentle way.

What’s special about our Vitamin C Glow Drops is that its a hydrating oil-based formula with calming florals like Rose and Arnica to moisturize and nourish your skin and restore your skin barrier, while still delivering antioxidant benefits to help brighten and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Both Vitamin C + Ferulic Acid, which we included in the formula, have strong calming properties and work together synergistically to boost the antioxidant effects of Vitamin C and deliver maximum benefits. The addition of Ferulic Acid with Vitamin C makes a potent skincare solution, even if you have sensitive skin as it helps to calm irritation, boost collagen and deliver maximum antioxidant protection to your skin. Your sensitive skin is better shielded from environmental stressors that can otherwise irritate your complexion.

Let’s dive a little deeper into the reasons why Dermatologists and the SAINT JANE team believe in this powerhouse ingredient:


Brightening and Balancing Skin Tone

Vitamin C is known for its brightening properties, helping to even out skin tone and fade dark spots. Vitamin C works by inhibiting unwanted pigment development, often caused by overexposure to the sun and skin dehydration. Vitamin C can help to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and leave your skin looking brighter, clearer, and more radiant.


Anti-Aging Benefits

Vitamin C is also incredibly effective at reducing the signs of aging. By stimulating collagen production, Vitamin C can help to firm up your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, Vitamin C can also help to protect your skin against environmental stressors such as pollution and UV radiation, which can cause premature aging and damage to skin cells.


Boosting Skin's Natural Defenses

Vitamin C plays an important role in boosting your skin's natural defenses. As an antioxidant, Vitamin C helps to protect your skin cells from free radical damage and other harmful molecules that can damage your skin. By boosting your skin's natural defenses, Vitamin C can help to protect your skin against environmental stressors, pollution, and UV radiation, keeping it looking healthy and radiant.


Promoting Skin Cell Turnover

Vitamin C also has incredible renewing properties for the skin by boosting collagen production and your skin’s elasticity. 

How to Incorporate Vitamin C into Your Skincare Routine

We recommend applying our Vitamin C Glow Drops daily as part of your AM skincare ritual. Using a Vitamin C serum in the morning, will give your skin the antioxidant support it needs throughout the day. After cleansing your skin, apply a full dropper of the serum onto dry skin and massage until completely absorbed. Follow up with a moisturizer like our Hydrating Petal Cream, and (of course!) SPF like our Luxury Sun Ritual SPF 30.

Wearing a facial SPF is important for everyday but especially important after using a Vitamin C Serum. Gentle citrus actives like Lemon and Pink Grapefruit in our Vitamin C Glow drops act as light exfoliators to boost skin renewal. Your freshly regenerated skin cells need immediate protection from sun damage.

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for your skin and one that you should incorporate daily for maintaining healthy radiant skin and that lit from within glow.

Luxury Active Floral: Blue Tansy, A Holy Grail for Skin Stress

Blue Tansy oil for anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial skin benefits. Purifies, calms and soothes sensitive and acne-prone skin.

Saint Jane uses delicate florals with modern actives to nurture your skin back into balance. Our goal with each clean, floral ingredient is to harness their powerful attributes to target specific skin problems like fine lines, dark circles, sun spots, dull skin, dry skin, clogged-pores, blemishes, redness and so many others.

When we developed Superflower Detox Serum, we wanted the formula to be a purifying powerhouse, giving your skin a true reset to restore balance. A detoxifying, daily green juice for your skin that strengthens your skin barrier, decongests pores and delivers rich antioxidants to shield your skin from environmental stressors. We were able to accomplish these goals in this superboost serum with powerful, floral essential oils…one of which is Blue Tansy.

French medical and herbal practitioners have long acknowledged the therapeutic qualities of Blue Tansy oil and it has long been used for its known anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.

Cultivated and thoughtfully purveyed from the Moroccan region, our farmers use a steam-distillation process in order to extract the most potent state of Blue Tansy oil, harnessing its maximum benefits for the skin. Compounds found in this versatile flower can help skin that’s prone to a range of problems, including dryness, sensitivity, irritation, breakouts, wrinkles and dullness. Making Blue Tansy a more than ideal ingredient in your daily skincare ritual, no matter your skin type…especially wildly sensitive, angry-at-everything skin.

We adore and celebrate Blue Tansy as one of our chosen luxury active florals for so many reasons, but here are a few:

Powerfully Calms Skin Stress

Blue Tansy is ideal for those with acne-prone skin, blemishes and other sensitivities. 

The magnificent blue color of Blue Tansy oil and the soothing effects come from chamazulene, a compound in the flower that has rich antioxidant activity. Whether you suffer from rosacea, eczema, acne or just general sensitivities, adding blue tansy to your skincare can help to bring your skin back to balance. Since Blue Tansy is known for its natural anti-inflammatory properties, it can offer general relief to tame flare-ups, and soothe redness and irritation. 

Replenishes Moisture to Dry Skin

Blue Tansy beautifully helps to provide moisturizing and nourishing relief to dry complexions and to even the most delicate and troubled complexions. Skin that is stripped of moisture and raw can receive hydrating relief from this powerful ingredient, plumping the skin and restoring bounce and elasticity, leaving many different skin types balanced, and noticeably glowier.

Calms and Soothes Sensitivity

Skin practitioners praise the calming effects of Blue Tansy with its antioxidant rich compounds to help shield your skin from free-radical damage, often the cause of so many skin sensitivities due to the breakdown of your skin’s natural defense system…the barrier. Even with Blue Tansy’s powerful effects, it is still ultra calming and soothing to the skin, giving you noticeable results, no matter your skin type.
