Vitamin C makes the world go around.

It’s true.  No other serum currently on the market can turn drab skin into a bright luminous complexion.  Not only does this stuff brighten, it adds another layer of protection against the long arm of the sun.  For prevention, this little gem should be added to your AM routine in your late teens or early 20s  if you are not fighting acne.  Don’t fret if you are late getting the notice, because it is a beauty MUST for building collagen and the correction of water loss in the skin, dullness, and age spots all the while preventing future damage. 

Buyer beware!  According to the American Academy of Dermatology, Vitamin C is highly unstable and will break down quickly with exposure to light or air.  It’s absorption into your skin is also dependent on the ph of the formula and % of Vitamin C.  When shopping for this precious formula, look for packaging that will protect it and go with a brand that you trust to test its products well.

Derma Darling Recommended Vitamin C:

Obagi – Professional-C Serums

SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic Serum

Both of these brands contain pure Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) and their products are backed with lots of science and testing.  I use Obagi’s 20% C serum and honestly couldn’t live with out it.
