As we grow older our skin begins to change due to hormones, environmental stressors, and physical health. This is the time when we begin to notice age spots also known as hyperpigmentation, which is the production of excess melanin that presents itself on our skin as spots or large patches. Hyperpigmentation is caused by a number of things such as sun damage and hormones. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that has long been used to prevent and treat sun damaged skin or hyper-pigmented skin. This vitamin is abundant in the human skin as it protects the skin from oxidative stress by lending electrons to neutralize the free radicals.

The exposure of skin to UV light generates ROS (reactive oxidative stress), a reaction that begins the chain of damage to skin cells. Antioxidants, like Vitamin C, are necessary to neutralize ROS from UV exposure, Vitamin C is found in foods such as green leafy vegetables, papaya, lemons and broccoli. Eating these foods is great but it’s not enough to ward of the damage of UVA and UVB light. Vitamin C works best in conjunction with Vitamin E which gives your skin four times the Vitamin C it needs!

My SKY Essentials Triple Clarifying Complex contains three forms of stabilized Vitamin C and three forms of stabilized Vitamin E. This provides your skin the antioxidants it needs to protect it, as well as giving it a healthy glow, by helping to get rid of wrinkles, evening out skin tone and unclogging pores. The combination of Vitamin C and E in our serum also helps to get rid of acne by preventing blackheads, without irritating the skin. My Triple Clarifying Complex also has an added benefit of Rosehip Seed Oil which also works as an antioxidant fighting free radicals, increasing cell turnover and reinforcing the skins barrier to improve skin tone and moisture level. Rosehip Seed Oil contains an increased amount of essential fatty acids such as Omega 3 and Omega 6, which are essential for skin health and helps with anti-aging.

The benefits of this combination has been researched and proven to be a vital addition to any skin care routine. Try my SKY Essentials Triple Clarifying Complex and receive 15% OFF your first order when you sign up for my emails.
