Spending the weekend in a friend’s countryside home, the girls were putting our stuff in the bathroom (picture this!). As usual, I was very interested in every little pot of cream I saw. Suddenly, I saw a pearly white and fuchsia box: “What’s this? Wow, Vitamin C!” and my friend offered me the box because she had another one at home. I only accepted 2 ampoules to try and now I am writing about my experience with a box I bought online later on.
First of all, what is vitamin C?
Vitamin C applied directly on the skin is a powerful antioxidant. It reduces the effects of skin aging because it can neutralize the harmful free radicals that attack the cells.
Vitamin C has other properties like:
- Stimulating the synthesis of collagen and elastic fibers, improving firmness and reducing wrinkles.
- Reducing the synthesis of melanin, resulting in lighter skin.
- It is also good to prevent cell damage from sunburns.
Vitamin C has a short life span after it makes contact with oxygen. It is for that I recommend you, if you want to get a vitamin C solution, to buy it in ampoules. This way, you can assure yourself that it completely has all its active properties. Much better to open and apply it.
It is possible to find vitamin C included as an ingredient in formulating creams and, recently, I have discovered vitamin C in powder! I got one packet and I will share my thoughts about it. But, I am now telling you in advance that it is very cool.
Repavar Active Vitamin C Ampoules are recommended for use in the day or at night after cleaning and drying the skin. Lightly massaging the product on the face and neck helps it to complete absorption. After this, you can continue with your daily routine and makeup.
I do not typically use it everyday but once a week and because the ampoule is big enough for me I apply it on my chest as well. The results are very satisfying: my skin is brighter, more flexible and every product I use after it is acts much better.
A tip: I put the rest of the product, when I finish, on top of my hands to protect them from future spots.
For me it is a must and, in the future, when my skin asks for more, I will know what it needs!
I couldn’t thank my friend enough for introducing this product to me.
I hope it helps you too!
