A powerful Anti-oxidant
Topical Vitamin C protects skin against harm caused by exposure to sunlight. It does this by neutralizing reactive oxygen species (free radicals), the highly reactive molecules produced by the interaction of sunlight, cell membranes, and other components of skin tissue. Antioxidants protect skin by neutralizing free radicals, which would otherwise destroy skin and its components. These free radicals are stimulated by ultraviolet light and also occur naturally in the oxygen atmosphere.
A Collagen booster
As we age we lose the ability to create collagen. It is the collagen in our skin that gives our skin structure and support. Vitamin C is the only antioxidant that has been proven to increase collagen synthesis. L-ascorbic acid serves as a signal, relaying a critical message to collagen genes to synthesize collagen, as well as being a cofactor for two enzymes important in collagen synthesis. Without sufficient levels of vitamin c in the skin itself the production of collagen is reduced significantly. Please note that whilst digesting vitamin c (in the form of vitaminc rich foodstuffs and drinks) or by taking vitamin c supplelements can help the production of collagen, it is unlikely that sufficient levels of vitamin c will make it out to the skin. Most vitamin c will be absorbed by the major organs leaving insufficient levels available in the skin for optimal collagen production.
Skin Lightening and Blemish Reduction
Topically applied vitamin c serum inhibits the production of tyrosinase - an enzyme which provokes the production of melanin. By inhibiting the production of melanin the skin will become lighter and localised areas of darker pigmenation will be reduced. Please note that melanin inhibiting agents such as vitaminc, niacinamide, kojic acid etc will not make skin lighter than its genetically determined colour. Such agents will restore skin to its normal colour. Vitamin C can also help prevent the appearance of hyperpigmentation and blemishes by protecting the skin from UVA damage which tends to lead to hyperpigmrentation. Vitamin can therefore prevent and treat pigmentation issues.
Our serum base contains vitamin rich plant oils (Apricot, Safflower, and Evening Primrose Oils) and moisturising agents hyaluronic acid and glycerine. The serum base is light and easily absorbed. Although the serum can be used at any time of day we recommend you apply the serum in the mornings to benefit from the skin protecting benefits, especially when outdoors.
Love this product!! 5 stars from me!
hi, I just want to say that I absolutely love your serum. I use this with the skin renewal cream at night and although only been using it about since a week, I can see the difference, my pores beside the two sides of my nose are tight again and I have more healthy radiant complexion! thank you for your producst!! already thinking of ordering more products :-)
I started using this product 2 years ago and I think I'm going to be using it forever! Does what promises and feels great on the face. I'm using it one face, eyes and neck. After I apply my moisturizer, or my sunscreen.
I absolutely love this product, I don't use it everyday, i'd say I use it 3 times a week and after i do a dermaroller treatment (Which I find it works amazing with). I apply the Aminoderm moisturiser on afterwards and i've noticed a massive difference in my skin since adding these 2 products together. It's gone a lot more plump, smoother and more radient, I get compliments on my skin all the time. Applying it over my skin after a dermaroller has such an amazing effect, it sinks in so effectively and makes me look radiant and fresh in the morning, I will be using this forever, i'm on my 3rd-4th bottle now, and been a fan of sr-skincare for almost a year now.
This is simply a wonderful, brilliant product. Packed with a punch and dealt with a kiss. It's a miracle worker. For the first time ever, I have used a product that is truly epic. After using this for a month now (along side other sr-skincare products/peels) it has made my skin so soft, smooth and tightened my pores. I'll never live without this vitamin C serum ever!
Simply The Best! At 51 people always ask me what I use for my skin. I will always buy this product.
I purchased this a week ago and I have used it twice a day for 4 days. My skin looks flawless, radiant and glows. I applied the Alpha Bright toner followed by the Vitamin C Serum and my usual moisturiser, (SPF 30). The result - simply stunning and I received complement after complement about my skin. I can see the difference; my skin looks phenomenal, clear, even toned, plump and my pores on either side of cheeks are smaller. I have used the Skinceuticals C E Ferulic serum and AS' Vit C serum has the same effect, in fact, I would go as far as to say, I prefer the way my skin looks using the AS serum. Great results at a fraction of the cost. Definitely a keeper and I'll be re-purchasing this again and again.
Great product, my dark spots faded (not very easy on black skin) my skin is less oily : all this for less than £5 after trying many expensive products. Truly amazing, a BIG THANK YOU to Forever Young. I will surely recommend you.
I agree with the other reviewers. This suits my skin very much and gives it a nice glow.
Easily comparable with high end Vit-C brands and at a fraction of the cost. I'm on my third bottle now and see this as a permanent staple in my beauty regime. A must have for micro-needling fans and anyone with pigmentation issues.
