WHY VITAMIN C ON YOUR SKIN
Personally, I am a believer of Vitamin C because it has worked drastically for my skin and that’s why I’m an advocate of the product. Here are some of the benefits of Vitamin C on the Skin:
- Increased tightness and toning
- Brighter, more youthful looking skin
- Reduction of age spots
- Environmental skin damage repair
Vitamin C is a powerful, naturally occurring antioxidant. However, it is a topical treatment to help UV damaged skin cells (sun burn). The process involves free radical elimination, which occurs when electrons are passed to those that have no charge.
As we age, the production of collagen, begins to decline. This leads to wrinkles and more aged-looking skin. Collagen is responsible for plumpness and youthfulness of the skin. A quality vitamin C serum can help boost the synthesis of collagen and improve the overall elasticity of the skin. hence, a treatment for fine lines and wrinkles
ABOUT THE OLE HENRIKSEN TRUTH SERUM COLLAGEN BOOSTER
OLEHENRIKSEN Truth Serum Collagen Booster is like a daily multivitamin for the skin and our #1 age-defying & vitamin C face serum. Ole was an early adopter of vitamin C in skincare, believing that its antioxidant properties and role in promoting collagen make it a crucial ingredient. This potent True-C Complex(TM) and collagen serum helps brighten and firm the skin as it delivers all-day hydration.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE OLE HENRIKSEN TRUTH SERUM COLLAGEN BOOSTER
For a fact, this isn’t merely straight-up vitamin C rather it is a ‘stabilized’ vitamin C derivatives. I got this in a custom set that came along with an Oil balancing toner from the brand.
The Ole Henriksen brand is a quite popular brand in the skincare scene. The product comes in a temepered glass bottle with a pump. It has a pleasant citrus smell which was not over bearing. The main active ingredient in Ole Henrikesen’s Truth Serum is 3% sodium ascorbyl phosphate. This is an alternate for the more common absorbic acid. However, unlike absorbic acid, sodium ascorbyl phosphate is more stable and does not oxidize nearly as quickly (my Pixi beauty Vitamin C serum oxidized on me) thus allowing it to consistently deliver maximum effectiveness while maintain a longer shelf life.
The next ingredient, sodium hyaluronate, is a derivative of hyaluronic acid. This is able to deeply penetrate the dermis and hold 1,000 times its weight in water thus, adding moisture can help protect against further environmental skin damage.
The inclusion of vitamin E in the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum is very important. This is because Vitamin E is a very effective antioxidants and moisturizer retainers. The vitamin also helps increase the skin’s natural protection against Ultra Violet rays, specifically UVB.
I started to see noticeable results after 21/2 weeks. The serum also provided me with much-needed hydration, helping plump my face nonetheless, it blurred out my hyper-pigmentation along my cheeks. I absolutely do recommend, but I must warn you it’s on the pricey side!
