The Vitamin C Serum You Need In Your Skin Care Routine

How many times have you been told to reach for the Vitamin C when attempting to fight off, or prevent sickness? Did you know that Vitamin C, in its powerful antioxidant serum form has quickly become a hero product in a solid anti-aging skin care routine? It has been proven to help fight dullness, hyperpigmentation and visible lines by packing a concentrated level of nutrients onto the skin while helping to halt the accelerator on the overall aging process (sign me up, please!). Last week, I was lucky enough to take a break from surf-camp-chauffeur to indulge in morning Pilates and a facial perched atop the city – while learning all about VICHY‘s new LiftActiv Vitamin C Serum: Brightening Skin Corrector.

Sunspots and overall dullness are my biggest skin issue. I’ve certainly had my share of skin-careless years, and it’s no secret that I spent a portion of last winter receiving several laser skin care treatments to help correct sun damage and sunspots with a top NYC Dermatologist. Thrilled with the results and a new skin care regime, I also left with quite the education in Vitamin C. Since my treatments, I’ve been applying a Vitamin C serum every morning before moisturizing and applying sunblock, but the hefty serum price tag never sat well with me. Since VICHY is among the list of brand recommendations that I received with my laser treatments (and the ONLY brand that my derm recommended at a reasonable price point) – I couldn’t wait for their breakthrough Vitamin C Serum to hit shelves. VICHY LiftActiv Vitamin C Serum: Brightening Skin Corrector, is officially here, combining 15% pure Vitamin C with natural-origin Hyaluronic Acid. I learned from the VICHY team that you won’t find this HIGH dosage of pure dermatologist grade Vitamin C at such a great price ($28.50, yay!) anywhere else.

Despite my diligent sunscreen and hat-wearing, my skin will always be prone to hyperpigmentation.  And since we are all about the ocean life during the summer months, a great skin care routine is especially crucial in prevention and overall brightening.

I’ve been using my new VICHY Vitamin C Serum, daily, for one week and I can already see impressive improvements. I wake up to what feels like my best-looking skin, and a pesky post-pimple mark is even gone. I learned that unlike other Vitamin C products, Vichy’s serum is comprised of their signature proprietary Mineralizing Thermal Water that so many know and love about the Vichy brand. This water is naturally rich in fifteen minerals to help protect against oxidative stressors and environmental aggressors. In addition to the serum, I was introduced to VICHY Mineral 89which I learned to layer over my VICHY Vitamin C Serum to really secure in the serum’s potent Vitamin C, along with sticking to an evening retinol regime.

Like so many moms I  know, I care about quality ingredients for myself and my family. One of the reasons why this product is the right fit for me is because it is free of parabens, fragrance, silicon, and oil. It is also suitable for sensitive skin, which I sometimes deal with, especially during the colder months.
