I’ll let you in on a little skincare secret… Sunscreen alone isn’t enough to prevent the skin damage that leads to fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration and sagging. Yes, sunscreen blocks the UV rays that essentially destroy our skin (and lead to skin cancer), but SPF does nothing to stop free radicals, those little scavengers who wreak havoc by stealing electrons within your skin cells.
But there’s a really easy way yo neutralize these little kleptomaniacs, and all you need is a quality vitamin C antioxidant serum. I will tell that this is one product you don’t want to scrimp on… You get what you pay for, and expect to pay $150 or more. And if you’re wondering why these serums carry such hefty price tags, let’s just say it takes a lot of work to formulate them at the proper concentration and pH so they can penetrate your skin.
There are only a few that I would recommend, and one of them in Obagi’s Professional-C Serum 15%–and I even found an amazing deal on it. Hop over to Exclusive Beauty Club and register to get one bottle for $93. Buy two products and the price drops to $55.80. or get six aging-phobic friends together and make a group purchase to get the price down to $51.15…
I’ve used other vitamin C serums by SkinCeuticals and iS Clinical (I recommend those as well), but this one has them beat in one very special way: It smells like Salon Selectives!
So dish… Are you using a vitamin C serum everyday along with sunscreen?
