The Power of Vitamin C

by

With the sun peeking through flurries of snow and stormy, gray skies, it’s likely that your skin is suffering from the dull bite of the cold. Lack of sunshine and Vitamin D means drab, lackluster skin, but you don’t have to succumb to winter blues if you have the power of Vitamin C! Vitamin C is proven to help reduce signs of aging and boost skin’s radiance, thus giving you a healthy, natural glow that will shine throughout even the coldest of winter storms.avalongel

Avalon Organics’ Refreshing Cleansing Gel is a gentle gel cleanser that uses Vitamin C to rid the surface of your skin from its dry, dull texture to reveal cleaner and brighter skin. This cleanser can be used twice a day, but is best used in the morning before you apply your makeup so that you can start the day refreshed and recharged.

Our skin undergoes the most repair overnight when our bodies are at rest and regenerating, which makes the Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial the perfect treatment to pamper dreary skin. This sleeping facial is applied in place of a night cream, allowing the rich, luxurious texture to hydrate the skin, as well as penetrating deep within to reveal a luminous, supple complexion the following morning!

olehenriksenSerums are concentrated treatments that sink into our skin and treat targeted or problematic areas. The Ole Henriksen Truth Serum is a lightweight Vitamin C serum that brightens, lightens, and tightens the skin. The serum helps to boost the production of collagen in the skin and fade any dark spots or discoloration that tarnishes the skin’s surface. It can be applied in the morning and the evening, twice a day, and should be followed with a moisturizer to lock in all of the serum’s benefits.tarte

If you’re suffering from dark circles and puffy eyes, the Tarte Maracuja C-brighter Eye Treatment is here to save the day! This ultra-hydrating eye treatment smooths the area underneath your eyes, banishing any blue tints and unwanted puffiness while making eyes appear brighter and more awake even if you did skip the beauty rest in favor of catching up with your favorite TV show on Netflix (don’t worry, it’s our little secret).
