Allow me to introduce you to my favorite skin brightener ever: C20+ Ferulic Vitamin C Serum.
This baby right here is the answer to protecting your skin from UV rays and also helping to brighten spots that are unwanted. Think sun spots, discoloration, a mustache…not like an actual hairy mustache, but you know that darkened area that appears above the top lip? Not cute.
I was so apprehensive about purchasing this serum on Amazon, having used a different, more expensive brand before…but the reviews were so good. And what got me was the fact that NuFountain makes the serums as they are ordered, just for you. FRESH. Love that! So I ordered and I am not disappointed. It’s better than the more expensive brand.
For those lucky people who don’t have any brown spots or mustaches, well aren’t you lucky…but you can still majorly benefit from a Vitamin C serum. Its benefits (via Livestrong):
+ Sparks collagen production: Collagen is naturally present in the body. It is responsible for the plumpness of our skin. With age, however, collagen production begins to slow. Topical vitamin C serums can stimulate collagen production. The added collagen might reduce and prevent the signs of aging, such as wrinkles. Choose vitamin C serums with either ascorbic or L-ascorbic acid as the active ingredient.
+ Protects and reverses sun damage: Vitamin C is known to repair some signs of sun damage, such as discoloration and fine lines. It’s the potent antioxidant properties of vitamin C serums that are responsible for reversing some signs of aging and reducing age spots.
+ Brightens skin: Topical vitamin C serums can brighten age spots and hyper-pigmentation, or discoloration of the skin. The vitamin C serums act as a natural bleaching agent and lighten the skin, including age spots and dark circles under the eyes. In addition to brightening skin, topical vitamin C serums can prevent mild redness associated with sun damage. Topical vitamin C can even reduce the number of sunburned skin cells.
Tips on storing and using Vitamin C serums:
Always keep your serum closed with the lid on tight and store in a cool, dark place. This keeps the active ingredients fresh.
I use my Vitamin C serum every morning first thing after I wash my face. Afterward, I apply sunscreen.
Do yourself a favor and give it a whirl! You won’t be disappointed. You can get the NuFountain serum HERE.
