We are going to reveal the biggest reason why some vitamin C and hyaluronic acid serum products really can make you look years younger.
At the same time, others are prone to irritating side effects and allergic reactions, but I’m not going to stop there.
We will also an incredibly simple Beauty trick to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face. This is something that’s completely overlooked by a staggering 99% of women before applying their anti-aging cosmetics each day.
Well, the active ingredients in both hyaluronic acid and vitamin C are proven to prevent and repair free radical damage to the skin, protect against UV sun damage, and stimulate collagen production when applied topically.
All of these benefits add up to a potent anti-aging solution that combat and even reverse the signs of aging on your face.
Vitamin C serum and hyaluronic acid serum are branded and sold separately in their own right although, some manufacturers cleverly combine the two ingredients into one product.
The length of time from when you start using the serums until you see results varies with each person. while some people noticed changes in their skin texture as soon as three to four weeks of consistent use. it may take others a little longer.
How to choose the best anti-aging serum:
Given the rapid rise in popularity of both vitamin C and hyaluronic acid serum over the past few years. It’s no surprise that the market for these anti-aging cosmetics has exploded yet, while some products are incredibly effective at creating a youthful and rejuvenated appearance. The vast majority promised way more than they can deliver.
Certain cosmetics may even cause more harm to your skin than good.
So how do you pick the right vitamin C and hyaluronic acid serum products?
The very first thing to check is the percentage concentration of each ingredient within their respective serums.
For example, there’s no point buying a bottle that is marketed as a vitamin C serum when vitamin C is one of the smallest components of the product. Conversely, too much vitamin C in a bottle can cause allergic reactions.
It’s also unlikely that your skin will be able to absorb as much of the antioxidant.
It would be best if you ideally opted for a bottle that contains between 10 to 20% vitamin C and for hyaluronic acid serum, a concentration of between 2 to 4% hyaluronic acid is generally regarded as the most effective.
Other factors to consider are the stability of the ingredients, the pH level, and the durability of the packaging, particularly for vitamin C serum, which can oxidize without an airtight UV-protected bottle. If in doubt, take a good look at the customer reviews online.
You should also pay particular attention to what others say about the overall absorption rate of each product and how quickly it penetrates the skin.
Using vitamin c or hyaluronic acid for the first time:
When you first begin using either vitamin C serum or hyaluronic acid serum, a little stinging and mild irritation is entirely normal.
For most people, this will subside as you get used to the treatment. Although there are exceptions and if the irritation persists, you may need to downgrade to a less potent serum to make it more tolerable.
Likewise, some products containing high levels of silicones and fillers can be problematic for women with acne-prone or sensitive skin. In this case, we recommend using the serum sparingly or discontinuing their use entirely if you suffer breakouts. On the whole, however, the side-effects from using either vitamin C serum or hyaluronic acid serum are mild.
Assuming you have bought a high-quality product and provided you allow your skin time to adjust to each serum, you can generally avoid complications gradually.
If, after a few months of consistent use, you’re still not happy with the result, you may wish to switch to an alternative product. But before doing so, please make sure your lack of progress is not a result of something closer to home.
The number one skincare mistake:
What most people don’t realize is that only 25 to 30 percent of the skin aging process is genetically determined.
This means that you can control the rate of fine line and wrinkle formation on your skin way more than you might have thought.
Of course, it’s vitally important to use the most effective anti-aging cosmetics available while protecting your skin from harmful UV rays.
Also, a healthy diet and regular exercise are essential to maintaining a youthful complexion. Smoking and alcohol consumption should be limited. Yet despite the widespread recognition of the above, there is still one massive mistake that millions upon millions of women and men across the world continue to make in their fight against premature aging.
They have never learned how to cleanse properly
It seems too simple to be true, but making just one or two minor changes to your cleansing regime can prevent years worth of wrinkles, sagging skin, and pigmentation issues no matter what else you do to combat the signs of aging.
The correct way to cleanse your skin:
The following steps are our best practice cleansing regime — a simple step-by-step process for cleaning your face without causing unnecessary dryness, irritation, or inflammation.
We are all different, and what works well for the majority of people might not necessarily work so well for you and your skin. That said, you will never experience the full anti-aging benefits of any cosmetic product without proper skin cleansing.
So please follow the steps carefully as you may be involuntarily damaging your appearance every single day without even knowing it.
• Using makeup wipes gently removes any eyeliner, mascara, and foundation.
• Ensuring your face is completely clear of makeup.
This first step is only necessary for the evening when you’ll want to remove everything from the day of your skin, including SPF sunscreens.
• Now wash your hands thoroughly with mild soap to remove any excess dirt and bacteria.
If you skip this step, the residue from your hands will transfer to your face.
• Place a small coin-sized amount of cleanser on the palm of your hands. -Use a lightweight pH-balanced cleanser that is not too strong or abrasive on your skin.
Never use soap on your face as this is likely to strip away your skin’s natural oils.
• Moisten your skin with a few drops of lukewarm water, then lather the cleanser and gently apply to your face.
• Use your fingertips in a circular motion remembering that your jawline is not the finish line.
• Apply an equal amount to your neck and decollete.
• Now rinse the cleanser thoroughly remembering to rinse commonly missed areas such as your hairline, neck, and the sides of your nose.
• Use warm water only.
Rinsing your face with cold water to close your pores is a myth. Water that is either too hot or too cold will only shock and irritate your skin, causing broken capillaries.
• Using a soft clean towel gently pat your skin. Dry rubbing can feel good, but it tugs and pulls your face and neck, which puts your elastin at risk.
This is the final step of your cleansing regime.
• We now recommend applying a lightweight natural toner to your skin. Such as poppy Austin pure rose water.
This will help to calm inflammation as well as balance, refresh, and hydrate your face and neck.
Maximize absorption and help seal in moisture:
Apply vitamin C serum or hyaluronic acid serum immediately after cleansing and toning, while your skin is still damp. Waiting until your skin is completely dry will make it harder for the active ingredients within the serums to sink in.
Follow with a high-quality natural moisturizer such as papaya Austin Barbary fig seed oil or 100% pure argan oil.
Finally, and most importantly, add a good-quality broad-spectrum sunscreen over your entire face and neck in the morning.
This will help to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays now and wrinkles and hyperpigmentation in the future.
You can then apply your makeup and head out the door with smooth, glowing skin that is ready for the day ahead.
