(Top 3 Reasons Why You Can’t Afford Not To!)

Yes! In fact, so long as it is properly formulated for the face, Vitamin C ranks among the best nutrients to use around the sensitive eye area. This naturally sourced antioxidant has shown to balance uneven skin tone, boost collagen production, and increase hydration.  When delivered in a serum, the ingredient is absorbed at the most effective levels in the skin.

One of the best Vitamin C serums contains a potent concentration, such as our Hyaluronic Vitamin C Serum 1 oz with five percent Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, a derivative of Vitamin C that doesn’t decay as fast as other serums that rely on L-Ascorbic Acid. The added concentration of 1.5% concentration of Matrixyl 3000 helps to build collagen and firm, along with a 1% concentration of Hyaluronic Acid. They all work together to help brighten and give you that well rested look.

Vitamin C is for All Ages and Skin Types

We designed our serum so that it can be used safely by all skin types, including sensitive, dry, combination or oily. The formula is clear, non-greasy, free of parabens, and fast-drying.

The Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin C Serum is great because this Vitamin C formula does not contain vitamin E, it is the best vitamin c serum for oily skin and works just as well on normal and dry skin.

No matter how old you are or what goals you have, our serum protects and nourishes the skin around the eyes. It effectively reduces the appearance and severity of:

  • Crows’ feet
  • Fine lines
  • Deep wrinkles
  • Eye bags

Benefits of Using a Vitamin C Serum 

There are no harmful effects of Vitamin C. It is safe to use even on the most sensitive skin with skin-healing properties that protect not just against precancerous changes, but pollution, sun damage, stress and smoking. Use regularly to help achieve more vibrant, glowing skin. Benefits include;

  • Protects against sun and pollution damage by neutralizing free radicals in the skin
  • Firms and smooths the skin by stimulating collagen production
  • Brightens the skin by increasing cell turnover
  • Helps heal acne scars, blemishes and small cuts by promoting healing and anti-inflammatory function
  • Evens our skin tone, minimizes dark spots and discoloration by inhibiting melanin production

How to Incorporate it in Your Skin Care Routine

Vitamin C for eye wrinkles works best as part of a daily skin care routine. Apply Hyaluronic Vitamin C Serum 1 oz serum on freshly washed skin, that is still damp in order to maximize absorption deeply into the skin. Take one or two drops on your ring finger, and gently pat around the orbital bone of the eye.  Hyaluronic Vitamin C Serum 1 oz can be applied both morning and night and used in combination with other products, such as an eye cream to help seal in moisture. If dark circles or spots are a concern, we recommend using the serum in tandem with our Dark Eye Circle Cream.

For such a popular skin care ingredient, there’s a lot going on with HA, so beware of love at first use! There are more layers to using HA than the simple equation, Dry Skin + Hyaluronic Acid = Hydrated Skin. In some conditions, the intended results can actually backfire. Think the opposite of clear, dewy, plump skin. So how do you use HA properly? 

First - Debunking Common Myths about HA 

Hyaluronic Acid is not actually an acid, like glycolic or salicylic acid that exfoliates the skin. HA is a complex sugar, known as a polysaccharide, that occurs naturally in the body providing hydration for our joints, hair, eyes and especially the skin.
