Two Miracle Must-Haves
By Elena Severin |
Vitamin C Serums are a must for anyone over the age of 25! They are the skin's equivalent of strength training. A good vitamin C serum will protect your delicate face from all of the collagen robbers we're exposed to everyday like: the sun, fluorescent lights, pollution, smoke and stress. The best serums have added benefits like hyaluronic acid and Esther-C. My personal favorite is Ole Henriken's Truth Serum Collagen Booster. One pump from the sweet-smelling bottle each morning before face lotion and sunscreen, and you will look as though you slept for 12 hours!
Now, if vitamin C serums are the equivalent of strength training for the skin, then vitamin A is like the skin's cardio. These are a must for anyone over the age of 30, as once we hit that magic number our skin slows down its collagen production. Vitamin A kicks our skin into action like our face's own personal treadmill. Vitamin A can be a bit hard on sensitive skins, so there are all kinds for all skin types. Products such as Quercetin, found in Korres's Quercetin and Oak Cream and Arctic cranberry, found in Orlane's Hypnotherapy line mimic vitamin A without the harshness that it can sometimes possess. Finding the right vitamin A for you might take some trial and error, but aren't all of these things worth doing?
