We all know that Vitamin C is great for our bodies and keeps us healthy, but have you ever thought about putting it on your skin? When applied topically Vitamin C (also known as ascorbic acid) evens out your skin tone, brightens your complexion, fades acne marks, reduces inflammation, and improves your skin overall. By incorporating the right products into your skin care routine you can also boost the effect of Vitamin C for even better results. Today we’ll be taking a look at the By Wishtrend Vitamin C skin care line and why you should consider adding it to your skin care routine.
By Wishtrend Pure Vitamin C 21.5% Advanced Serum
This concentrated serum contains 70% vitamin tree water and 21.5% pure Vitamin C. Because it contains a high level of Vitamin C it gives results almost instantly. The serum has a very light watery texture and is not sticky at all. As soon as I began using this serum I quickly noticed that my skin became much brighter. I also noticed that it reduced the appearance of my blackheads. After using it over a longer period of time I realized that it helped the redness on my face disappear. Since Vitamin C is a type of AHA which has an exfoliating effect, you should not be using it every single day. 1 or 2 times a week during your night time routine should be enough. Remember to always use a sunscreen during the day after using Vitamin C products.
By Wishtrend Natural Vitamin 21.5 Enhancing Sheet Mask
This sheet mask contains boseong green tea water and vitamin tree water for perfect long lasting moisture. The sheet mask is gentle enough to be used anytime you want or you can use it on days where your skin feels like it needs some extra care. What I love about this sheet mask is that I can instantly feel a calming, soothing, and cooling effect as soon as I put it on. It makes my skin look very bright and plump the next morning which makes it good to use before special events. If you use it after applying the vitamin serum it will help to enhance the effects of Vitamin C. It also helps to maintain your skin’s natural oil / water balance. After applying the vitamin serum, leave the sheet mask on for 15-20 minutes then gently tap in the remaining essence to absorb.
By Wishtrend Vitamin 75 Maximizing Cream
This vitamin cream contains 75% vitamin tree water along with Vitamin E. It is mild enough so all skin types – including sensitive skin types – can use it. Vitamin E is excellent for boosting the effect of Vitamin C while soothing and moisturizing your skin. This cream has anti aging and brightening benefits as well. It has a light, fluffy, almost balm-like texture with a refreshing finish. I use this cream daily because it deeply hydrates the inner layers of my skin without feeling oily. This product is free from artificial fragrance but still gives off a very light citrus scent from its natural ingredients. If you use this cream after the Vitamin C serum and sheet mask, it will lock in all the moisture and allow everything to work at its fullest potential.
How can these products be used together?
The fun part about this collection of vitamin products is that you can use them all in order as a special treatment care, or you can mix and match them to use for daily care. To use them together begin with a cleanser and toner to prep your skin then add 3-4 drops of the vitamin serum to your entire face. After it is absorbed into your skin apply the enhancing sheet mask for 15-20 minutes then finish off with the maximizing cream to lock everything in. This routine is good to do once a week.
If you have sensitive skin try putting some of the maximizing cream into the palm of your hand and mix a few drops of the vitamin serum into it. Apply that to your entire face once a week after cleansing and toning for less irritation.
If you have never tried Vitamin C products before, make sure to do a patch test on your arm or behind your ear to check for allergies or bad reactions before you apply it on your face.
Do not use any AHA or BHA products in the same skin care routine with Vitamin C. Make sure the toner you use before applying Vitamin C products does not contain any exfoliating ingredients. Do not use products that contain niacinamide along with Vitamin C. Keep your Vitamin C serum stored in a refrigerator to preserve it and always use a sunscreen during the day with SPF 35 or greater after using Vitamin C products.
