The Miracle Serum

I know what you are thinking, ‘that’s quite an exaggeration’. But then again the word ‘miracle’ is relative. The point being made here is as regards its potency and effectiveness. The product being referred to in this context is the Credence beauty collection (CBC) Vitamin C serum.

The CBC vitamin C serum is a fine combination of Argan oil, hyaluronic acid, glabra extract and of course its signature 20% ascorbic acid, just to mention a few skin nourishing ingredients. The combination of these ‘skin foods’ work in harmony to solve the problems of skin hyperpigmentation, blemishes and also reduce appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The importance of incorporating a vitamin c serum into your beauty routine cannot be over emphasized.

Vitamin C serum and Free radicals

Free radicals are molecules with unpaired electrons. Free radicals can bind to the body by exposure to UV radiation from the sun; this practically means no one is spared. They are harmful and may cause oxidative stress. As much as we cannot go into the whole chemistry, it should be known that free radicals are bad for the skin cells and may cause their deterioration which speeds up the aging process. Now this is where the CBC vitamin C serum comes in. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that fights free radicals and neutralizes its effect of skin damage.

The CBC Vitamin C serum

The CBC vitamin C serum comes in an Amber glass bottle with a rubber dropper cover. This packaging material was chosen to accommodate the photosensitive nature of the product; thus the amber color. When Vitamin C is exposed to UV light, it tends to lose its potency.

Product User guide

The CBC vitamin C serum is best applied on a freshly steamed or wash face as this helps to open up the skin pores to promote the absorption of the serum. A moderate amount is dropped on the area of interest (in this case, forehead, chin, cheek and neck) and is properly massaged into the skin using circular motions.

Seeing that the serum has a vitamin C concentration of 20%, it is not advisable for use on extremely sensitive skin but can be used on other skin types. The CBC vitamin C serum is water based. This means that there will be no hassle penetrating into the skin pores as vitamin C is water soluble.

It is important to note that while using this product, it shouldn’t be used together with retinol or benzoyl peroxide containing products as these compounds make ascorbic Acid (Vitamin c) ineffective rather they can be used at different times in the day or on different days

Vitamin C serums are preferable to use in the mornings as this is when there is the most UV radiation. But seeing that vitamin C is photo sensitive, it is best advised that it should be applied and allowed to absorb into the skin before going out for the day.

The CBC Vitamin c serum can be used twice a day and everyday depending on the nature of effect you are aiming at. Nevertheless, it helps achieve an overall skin glow and evens out the skin. Everyone deserves a healthy skin and that includes you. Or don’t you think so?? Include the miracle serum in your cart and treat your skin right.
