Vitamin C. It’s the beauty ingredient of the moment – and for good reason. I’ve been reading about copious cult beauty serums that promise a more balanced skin through the powers of vitamin C, but as always I’ve been holding out for a natural option. I’ve finally found that option – in the form of Laidbare Skincare’s Dusk Till Dawn Vitamin C Serum!
Here’s why it’s become an instant skincare essential in my beauty routine…
INNER & OUTER NOURISHMENT
Growing up, vitamin C was one of those important essentials my mum would always go on about. The immune-boosting nutrient has long stuck with me, but I’ve since learnt you can enjoy its benefits both inside and out.
In skincare, vitamin C works hard as an antioxidant that will neutralise skin-damaging free radicals, essentially nourishing your skin overnight and protecting your skin from each day’s dirt, dust, and everything in-between.
Using natural Blackcurrant Seed Oil, Laidbare’s Vitamin C Serum is a potent option for keeping skin clean, clear, and well-balanced. I use mine straight after washing my face each morning and night, as it acts brilliant base layer before my moisturiser. The pump mechanism with the serum squeezes out tiny drops, of which I only need one or two to really hydrate my skin.
The serum also absorbs quickly, leaving a dewy glow – perfect for a no-makeup day too.
THE POWER OF NATURE
As with all my natural skincare choices, I love knowing how each ingredient works, and this serum is one of the best. The Blackcurrant Seed Oil is paired with with Evening Primrose Oil to reduce inflammation and redness – something I suffer from – boosting its nourishing properties greatly.
Laidbare has also cleverly added Carrot Seed Oil, which provides a powerful range of vitamins including A, B, C, and E, with vitamin E widely-known for its skin-boosting properties.
The reason my From Dusk Till Dawn Vitamin C Serum has been an instant hit in my beauty routine is because of how well it works during the upcoming summer months. With warmer weather (finally) coming, my skin needs as much hydration as possible. The serum works hard to rejuvenate dry, irritated or damaged skin, and acts as a brilliant way to protect my skin from drying out in the sunshine. That being said, I also always have my natural SPF products on hand too!
LAYING IT ALL BARE
Alongside being a great product, I was happily surprised to find the serum is only £12.99, which is incredibly cheap for both a serum, and a natural beauty product. It’s one of the main reasons why I love Laidbare – the independent, all-woman team really know their natural beauty, and that it doesn’t have to cost the earth!
