If you’re not yet familiar with the skin care benefits of vitamin C, it’s a natural antioxidant that helps brighten the skin, address signs of aging, and even tone among other benefits.
But not all vitamin C skin care products are created equal, which is why we’re sharing what you need to know about the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 10% Pure Vitamin C Serum, and what sets it apart. Ahead, we’re sharing how to use the beloved serum and why it should be a staple in your skin care regimen.
Benefits of the L’Oréal Paris Vitamin C Serum
Vitamin C serums are known to sometimes feel gritty or go bad quickly due to light pollution and oxygen exposure. These major downfalls were taken into consideration when formulating this serum. It has a smooth, non-greasy texture, and the packaging is an air-tight, easy-to-use tube made from aluminum that will help prevent the product from degrading.
When creating the formula, an advisory panel of dermatologists was able to work with and validate the products that make up the Derm Intensives line. The panel worked in conjunction with the L'Oréal research and scientific knowledge teams to perfect it by dissecting testing protocols and results from independent clinical research facilities.
The formula contains key skin care ingredients, such as pure vitamin C and hyaluronic acid. To maximize the vitamin C purity, the serum is formulated without the use of water. This resulted in a highly potent, effective vitamin C serum.
It’s also fragrance-free, paraben-free, mineral oil-free, dye-free, allergy tested, and non-comedogenic.
This Pure Vitamin C Serum works to leave your skin visibly brighter and more radiant in just one week. After two weeks of continued use, it helps to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
It also aids in reducing dark spots, improving skin clarity, and evening skin tone over time. It glides onto the skin with ease and it doesn't contribute to a greasy complexion throughout the day.
How Do You Use L’Oreal Paris Vitamin C Serum?
Here’s how to incorporate this vitamin C serum into your daily skin care routine in the morning and at night.
1. Cleanse Your Skin
Just as with any skin care routine, the first thing you want to do is cleanse your skin of any impurities.
If you have oily skin, try the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift 3.5% Glycolic Acid Cleanser to gently exfoliate your skin and rid it of excess oil.
If you have dry or sensitive skin, go for the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof - All Skin Types. It removes makeup and impurities without stripping the skin of necessary oil.
2. Apply the Serum
Once your skin is cleansed, it’s time to apply your vitamin C serum. Simply apply a pea-sized amount onto your fingertips and gently work into clean, dry skin. A slightly warming effect is completely normal. Your skin will be left feeling smoother and looking more vibrant.
Editor's tip: If you think there’s room in your routine for another serum and your skin is in need of an extra dose of hydration, try applying the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Derm Intensives 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum right before the vitamin C serum. In addition to providing hydration, the serum will visibly plump your skin.
3. Lock It In With Moisturizer
To complete your skin care routine, lock in hydration with a moisturizer. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, Vitamin C can make the skin more sensitive to the sun, so it’s important to use a moisturizer with SPF during the day.
We love the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power Day Lotion SPF 30 because it has SPF protection on top of its moisturizing benefits. Plus, it also contains retinol and hyaluronic acid to help address the appearance of wrinkles and brighten the skin.
