Skincare Session | Benefits of Vitamin C & Matrixyl*
Wednesday, November 23, 2016
I've mentioned before that I'm beginning to pay more attention to my skincare needs. I'm trying to do more research on what products to try for anti-aging purposes, acne treatments, and just all around essential products for my skin.
And I believe I've also mentioned that I was a pretty basic girl when it came to my skincare routine -- I pretty much did the basics -- cleanse, exfoliate every once in awhile, and moisturize. No serums, no fancy oils...just the basics. While sticking to the basics is better than doing nothing at all, it was definitely time to add a few products into my regimen.
When added to your skincare regimen, Vitamin C helps provide a range of benefits to your skin -- evening your skin tone, boosting hydration, and helps keep your skin look younger! The higher the concentration of Vitamin C, the more noticeable your results will be -- but you must also listen to your skin and determine what best works for you.
So far, I haven't experienced any more breakouts than I usual and I haven't seen any allergic or sensitivity either, but I have refrained to using only a couple of drops once a day, versus 4 drops twice a day -- my skin is really sensitive, so I need to introduce product slowly.
Matrixyl S6 Serum, doesn't it sound like something scary?!? Well, it's not. To put it simply, matrixyl is a type of peptide, or protein -- without peptides skin loses firmness, wrinkles begin to appear, and texture begins to change -- all things we don't want. While this isn't the cure-all for anti-aging, it's a wonderful product to add to your cocktail of goodies. This serum also contains hyaluronic acid -- a vital and natural substance that replenishes moisture, lots of moisture! As we age, our skin loses the ability to retain a well balanced amount of moisture -- which results in aging, loss of firmness and decreased appearance of plumpness.
Thankfully, I also haven't experienced any bad side effects from this serum either, but I'm also using less of it.
I've really enjoyed learning more about skincare and the benefits of these particular serums. Another thing I really like, is that Timeless Skincare is an all-natural, paraben-free and cruelty-free skincare company! And, they are currently running an awesome 50% off promotion! So if it's something that you are interested in adding to your skincare needs, hurry...it ends on the 29th!
What is your skincare routine like? What are some of your favorite anti-aging products?
