Your Complexion Does Better With Vitamin C---And We're Not Talking Orange Juice!

Vitamin C.

If you do your beauty homework, then you will find that a topical Vitamin C serum is excellent for a beautiful complexion.

Orange juice is also good for your general health, but when it comes to skin care, you need something more powerful than a juice.

Although we have Retin-A + Alpha Hydroxy Acids in our own anti-aging arsenal, we have learned that adding Vitamin C completes the skin care circle.

So, we have been using a topical Vitamin C serum for about a month now. And we have concluded that Vitamin C makes for healthy, more radiant skin. Our choice:

Dr. Bailey's Professional Cell Repair Serum ($111, at
We LOVE this stuff.

We have noticed in the past 30 days:

softer, smoother skin
a brighter complexion
and in our case, tiny broken capillaries under our right cheek appear to have faded a bit.

So, that's pretty encouraging to us.

Topical Vitamin C in the form of Ascorbic Acid has been shown in a number of studies, to brighten skin, decrease the depth of wrinkles, and stimulate collagen.
Vitamin C serum is a worthy beauty item to add to your anti-aging product arsenal, because it protects the skin from sun damage. 

Unfortunately, NOT all topical Vitamin C serums are alike. So, you must be keen on the C you are buying.

The serum can break down. So not only is the right formula needed, but the proper packaging, too.

Dr. Bailey's good name is on her skin care line, including her Vitamin C Anti-Aging Professional Treatment Serum. So she is very careful about the process of bottling:

Packaged into a sealed, opaque, airless pump so you use "active" vitamin C every time you apply my serum - I think this is the best vitamin C skin care product made!
