Thanks to various environmental factors that are beyond our control, dark spots are a super-common (and normal) skin concern. That’s why vitamin C is such a beloved ingredient. The powerful antioxidant helps fade pigmentation by impeding melanin production, reducing the appearance of dark spots. It’s often recommended by dermatologists for its anti-aging benefits too. It helps protect cells by neutralizing free radicals (unstable molecules that cause damage to skin). Vitamin C also boosts collagen production in the skin, which means it tackles the look of fine lines and wrinkles. In some cases, it even helps to heal wounds. Read on to find out how adding L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 12% Vitamin C Serum to your regimen can brighten your complexion in just one week.
What causes hyperpigmentation?
So many factors can lead to dark spots on the face, from genetics (hello, freckles!) and hormonal changes to sun damage from UV rays. When the skin produces extra melanin, it can create spots or patches that appear darker than the surrounding skin. Even acne and minor skin injuries, like cuts and burns, can lead to hyperpigmentation. This can’t always be prevented, but lifestyle changes can make a big difference. First of all, don’t forget to wear SPF—apply a moisturizer like L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power LZR Anti-Aging Day Lotion SPF 30 every morning. Adding a hyperpigmentation treatment to your skincare routine can also be very helpful. For that, look no further than the potent brightening powers of vitamin C. L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 12% Vitamin C Serum works hard to revive skin’s radiance and even out tone, delivering results you can see.
What are the benefits of vitamin C?
Vitamin C is naturally found in skin; we get a lot from our diet too, of course, but not enough to get a glowing complexion. Using a topical vitamin C skincare treatment like L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 12% Vitamin C Serum offers a whole host of solutions to various skincare concerns. The serum was developed for maximum potency. Firstly, it works to brighten skin in just one week, delivering vibrant radiance and smoother skin texture. Within two weeks, it evens out skin tone and visibly reduces the look of fine lines. And after four weeks, you’ll notice that the less visible pores and wrinkles will look reduced. The bottom line: You’ll get a noticeably brighter, more youthful-looking complexion fast with L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 12% Vitamin C Serum.
Who should use vitamin C?
Everyone! Oxidative stress from UV rays can start to affect your complexion in your 20s, leading to a dull, uneven skin tone and dark spots. And as we age, skin’s cell turnover naturally begins to slow down. Here’s the great news: Vitamin C is suitable for all skin types, and L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 12% Vitamin C Serum is allergy-tested, so it’s safe even for sensitive skin. (The formula contains no parabens, mineral oils or colourants.) After cleansing every morning and evening, smooth a few drops of L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 12% Vitamin C Serum onto your face, avoiding the eye area. (You might feel a slight warming effect, which is totally normal.) After just one month, you’ll have a noticeably brighter complexion.
