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.
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.
