August 04 /2021

Comments

The excitement is *so* real for this one, babe. Our latest product launch is absolutely everything you’ve been waiting for in a serum, and we are beyond hyped to tell you all about it. I mean, talk about changing the glow game with just a little bit of help from the easiest to use antioxidant powerhouse. From how to incorporate Vitamin C into your skincare routine to the slew of benefits you’ll get from this bad boy, we’re covering it all in this Product Spotlight on our new Vitamin C Serum.

Why you should totally consider using BBE’s new Vitamin C serum

Here’s what makes this serum the one you’ll reach for over and over again. We didn’t only include the best Vitamin C in it, we also added in a ton of other organic ingredients that will take your skincare routine to the next level. But hey, we totally recognize that this brightening ingredient is the star in this serum, so while we’re on the topic, let’s go over how bomb it is for your skin first.

Vitamin C is a heavy-weight antioxidant and works overtime to protect your skin from free radicals. What’s more, it can visibly reduce the signs of aging due to how it boosts collagen production in the skin. And if aging skin isn’t a concern of yours yet, this ingredient also helps with uneven skin tone. Essentially, forget dark spots and dull skin when you’ve got this secret weapon under your belt.

What’s in this serum, you know, besides Vitamin C?

So what else did we pack into this long-awaited serum? Babe, we’re so glad you asked. Broccoli seed oil, willow bark extract, jojoba seed oil – and the list goes on! These organic elements are antibacterial, and all work together to create a powerful barrier for your skin. And while we love all of that, we have to admit that what truly makes this Vitamin C product a showstopper, is the addition of hyaluronic acid in it.

If you think this ingredient sounds scary, think again gorgeous. Hyaluronic acid helps your skin retain moisture, which ultimately creates a beautiful plumping effect. On top of that, it also reduces signs of premature aging and with continued use, you’ll notice that even your pores will appear tighter and smaller.

Is Vitamin C really for me?

Babe, Vitamin C is for everyone. Everyone’s skin could use a little extra TLC and brightening. And with BBE’s serum, it’s also safe for everyone. Our exclusive HyperActive Anti-Aging Blend is packed with antioxidants and plant-based stem cells. Suffice it to say, there is no serum quite like this one around!

Now that you have the entire lowdown on the lineup of superstars we used to create this one, it’s time to move on to the next thing you need to know in this Product Spotlight for BBE’s new Vitamin C Serum.

How to incorporate Vitamin C into your skincare routine

Adding this lightweight serum into your skincare routine is easy peasy, babe. For real, you’ll look forward to this step morning and night, we promise.

Our Vitamin C serum won’t sting your skin like some of the other guys out there. Even if you’re a sensitive queen! All you need to do is apply a few drops to your face to freshly cleansed skin before you move on to your regular moisturizer.

And while we *always* recommend a good SPF for that pretty face, it is even more crucial that you apply sunscreen when using Vitamin C products. Together, these two are a power couple when it comes to protecting the skin from environmental damage. And what most people don’t know, is that using sunscreen on top of your Vitamin C products actually improves its efficacy. If your skin is more on the sensitive side, we suggest adding this guy to your nighttime skincare routine.

The tips & hacks you need to know about this product, right now.

As your besties in all things natural beauty, the tips and hacks department is where we truly shine. So naturally, we had to include a few in this Product Spotlight on our new Vitamin C serum. And trust us when we tell you, there are some key tricks you need to know about when it comes to Vitamin C, your skin, and how you can leverage all of its amazing benefits!

Forget pore-clogging makeup primers. Use Vitamin C serum instead!

If you love to get glam, our Vitamin C serum can take your dewy skin look to the next level.

Applying a few drops to your skin before applying your foundation will give you a gorgeous base for application, and will help you achieve that glowy, just got back from vacay look.

And if you’re going for the currently beloved no makeup, makeup look? Add a drop or two of this serum to your foundation, mix it together, and voilà: you’ve got yourself a lightweight makeup option that won’t feel greasy or oily throughout the day. You’re welcome, babe.

Use your Vitamin C serum on days when you’re *not* exfoliating

Even though we made this Vitamin C serum with sensitive babes in mind, experts recommend that Vitamin C products be used on days where you’re cleansing normally instead of exfoliating.

This is because your skin is at its most sensitive after exfoliation, therefore adding powerful Vitamin C at this point in your routine can cause irritation. Using a gentle foaming cleanser before serum application is what we like best for a beautiful, bright complexion.

If you’re only going to use your Vitamin C serum once a day, at night is best

Here’s the thing. We personally can’t get enough of this powerful little serum, so we love using it twice a day. But if for any reason using a Vitamin C product once a day works best for you, that’s cool too, boo!

In this case, when to apply your Vitamin C has been a long-debated topic amongst beauty junkies. However, we love applying it, especially at night as the vitamin c serum can cause slight reactions with exposure to long periods of sunlight. If you’re worried about your sensitive skin experiencing a reaction, we definitely recommend a nightly remedy!

And finally… Avoid using Vitamin C with products that contain benzoyl peroxide

If you use any acne fighting products that contain benzoyl peroxide, avoid using Vitamin C in conjunction with them.

Why not, you ask? Well, using these two ingredients together can actually counteract their effects. Benzoyl peroxide can oxidize Vitamin C, making the benefits you want to reap from it null and void.

Use these products to complete your brightening skincare routine

If we’ve convinced you to get on the Vitamin C bandwagon, snaps for you (and us), babe! Seriously, it’s one ride you won’t want to get off of – we swear!

You can definitely incorporate your new serum into your existing skincare routine as we mentioned above. But if you’re in need of some inspiration for how to curate the perfect morning or nighttime beauty ritual that includes a Vitamin C based product, we’ve also got you covered. Check out how you can have your very own brightening skincare regimen, below.

The easy, effective, Vitamin C packed morning or night routine

  1. Pick up your fave BBE cleanser, and lather up! Whether you choose our gentle foaming face wash, or our Superfruits & Sea Kelp face wash, you’ll be sure to have clean pores that are ready for the next step! Ps. If you love using a toner, spritz it on at this point in your routine, *pre* serum application.
  2. Time to apply your new go-to serum. Apply 1-2 pumps to a dry face, neck, and chest, and let it sink into your skin! You can use a gentle pressing motion with your fingertips to apply your serum if you like.
  3. A few seconds later, your skin will have absorbed the Vitamin C serum. This means you’re now ready to apply a moisturizer. BBE’s Vitamin C serum pairs beautifully with all of our moisturizers, so just pick one that’s best suited for your skin type! Need a little help with that? Don’t sweat it, babe. Click here.
  4. And finally, if you’re completing this routine in the morning, you need to apply your SPF, girlfriend! Whether you opt for our facial sunscreen or one of our tinted facial SPF sticks that can make your makeup routine a cinch, is up to you. Either way, protect that pretty face from the sun’s harmful rays with our new fave dynamic duo: Vitamin C serum and SPF!
