I am not about to give you truth serum from Harry Potter, and make you spill all of your secrets. But I am going to let you in on the secret that has been huge in helping clear up my skin! Vitamin C! I recently started trying Ole Henriksen Truth Serum, and have fallen in love with its benefits.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps to rebuild and maintain collagen, while helping to firm and brighten your skin. I use a small pea size amount each morning after my cleanser and before my moisturizer and sunscreen. Since it is used to fight the free radicals we encounter during the day, you want to use this just in the morning. Save your vitamin A for the night fight, and let the vitamin C be used when more beneficial. More information about applying your skin regimen can be found through Dr. Reath’s practice, here.
I received a 0.5 oz sample over Thanksgiving weekend, and became hooked after seeing my skin start to clear up and get a much brighter glow. My skin started to look healthier just after a week of use, and gave me the confidence to put up a selfie on Instagram today. I ordered the 1 oz bottle, which runs around $48.00 (look for deals on Sephora’s website or Ole Henriksen), but the 0.5 oz lasted me almost a month. So it won’t have to be a frequent purchase and you can see the 1 oz pictured above is a good amount of product. Remember a little bit goes a long way in providing a glowing complexion! Whether it’s this brand or another, you definitely want to add this vitamin to your skin care regimen.
Do you have a favorite vitamin C serum?!
