When it comes to my skin and hair, Vitamin C is a must. Vitamin C is packed with antioxidants to fight off free radicals, prevent premature aging, brightens dull skin for that healthy luminous glow and strengthens hair and nails. Vitamin C is even my go-to supplement for that kick-start in the morning to get the creative juices flowing!
I find that the benefits of Vitamin C are most effective in the morning, which is why I try to incorporate it in my routine as much as possible. If I could have my way I’d wake up with mimosas every morning (as orange juice is packed with Vitamin C), but we all know that is a little farfetched! (Or is it?) J
Setting the mimosas aside, here are a few other essentials I focus on to get the lush benefits of Vitamin C.
Wake Up With Me & Vitamin C!
First things first, I love sleep. There are some mornings where I have difficulties getting up without feeling groggy or unmotivated which is often due to insomnia and a lack of sleep in general. As a result, I take showers in the morning as the warm water helps to wake me up but as the hot water is not always affective, I have a little sidekick.
Believe it or not I own a Vitamin C infused shower head and it is spectacular! Aroma Sense is the maker of Aromatherapy shower heads that are filled with aromatic scents and oils that are invigorating for your senses. This definitely comes in handy as the mixture between the water and the scent helps stimulate my mind at the start of they day and helps get me going!
I will also add that it makes my shower and bathroom smell amazing throughout the day! It is a nice scent to come home too, especially when you have two fluff balls running around while you are gone. I can say it makes the guests happy.
As for my skin and hair (being as fragile as they are), the harsh water we have here in California has made a difference to the overall health and appearance of the two over the years I have lived here. The Vitamin C and the microfiber filter in the shower head has helped neutralize chlorine and other unfiltered chemicals to give me cleaner, softer water for my skin and hair. It has left my hair softer, more manageable and has made my skin less irritated.
As Vitamin C is great for collagen, I have also noticed a nice plumpness to my cheeks! Who could argue with that?!
Beautify with Vitamin C!
As all great things come in pairs, I have added these two gems to my current skincare routine to use in the mornings after I shower.
+ Ole Henriksen’s Truth Serum Collagen Booster: Packed with Vitamin C complex that helps with fine lines, uneven skin tone and texture, and elasticity
+ Image Skincare Vital C Hydrating Intense Moisturizer: An ultra-hydrating crème that immediately replenishes moisture for intensive skin improvement and all day smoothness and hydration. I like to call this an orange creamsicle for your face (this moisturizer literally smells like an orange creamsicle and feels amazing on the skin) as it restores youthful resilience for perfectly polished, glowing skin
