I don't mind aging, but I want to age beautifully. I am from Hawaii and naturally love the sun and beach. I would rather take precautions than worry incessantly about sun-damage. Life is too short to not live in the moment. Don't you agree?
These past few years, I've started to notice a few sunspots forming on my face, chest, and hands. Not a lot, but I am a firm believer in taking action while things are in its infancy stage. It is a lot easier to squash those suckers early on than to wait for it to grow and darken. I am not at the stage where I feel I need any invasive treatments. Right now, I would rather tackle it with a balanced and clean diet and upgrade my skincare routine.
There are a lot of GREAT products that work well in lightening up sunspots on the market today. But my issue has always been an ethical one. I want something that is strong enough to actually work but also, they need to be cruelty-free, toxic-free and vegan. Also, a lot of vitamin c serums on the market are chemically altered.
So why should you add an extra step to your skincare routine?
1. Vitamin C serum adds an extra boost to your sunscreen in warding off UVA/UVB rays from the sun.
2. We all know that Vitamin C helps build collagen in your skin. Thus, making your skin brighter, even-toned and supple.
3. If you can find a vitamin c serum that is plant-based, then you have the added benefits of reaping the emotional aspects that plants naturally give us. Some feelings are a sense of happiness, light-hearted and feeling energized.
Continued use of a Vitamin C Serum will protect you from further sun damage, give you that youthful glow, even out redness and lighten sun spots! My sunspots are fading naturally!! Yey!
