HYDRATE Vitamin C Serum
This product enhances aging skin, but vitamin C serum is a must-have at any age!
It’s loaded with skin-friendly oils that brighten the complexion, reduce fine lines, enhance collagen production, and, lastly and most importantly, seal and protect the skin barrier. This lightweight formula helps lock moisture in and just feels great on the skin!
The benefits of using a vitamin C serum include powerful topical antioxidants and improved skin brightness and firmness due to increased collagen production.
Antioxidants eliminate free radicals that cause wrinkles and clogged pores, reduce collagen breakdown, and keep us youthful.
The brightening effect of vitamin C helps even out skin tone, brightens dark spots, and treats hyperpigmentation and acne scars.
I chose the form of vitamin C (tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate) because it’s the most stable and nonirritating (pH is <5). It also penetrates deeper than all other vitamin C derivatives. I add vitamin E to the formula so that the C is more effective.
I also chose an air-tight, black bottle and treatment pump so that air or light doesn’t reach the oil at all. This keeps your vitamin C serum fresh and stable.
A common vitamin C used in skincare is L-ascorbic acid because it’s a very natural form of C, but it can be very irritating for sensitive skin. It’s also highly unstable as soon as light or air hit it and people end up using rancid vitamin c products which in turn cause damage.
Further, I do believe the skin is smart and knows just what to do in order to be healthy. If we give it the right tools, trust, and listen. If your skin barrier is healthy and healed and you can put oils on your face- this vitamin C serum is an amazing next step for glowing, ageless skin.
The STAR ingredients in Hydrate-
Vitamin C- Helps brighten dark spots, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and produce collagen for firmness, elasticity, and plumping!
Squalane Oil- Squalane instantly hydrates! Squalane is a powerful emollient that helps soften and smooth your skin, locking in moisture. It is absorbed quickly and easily without leaving behind an oily residue. Many people who are acne-prone love squalane oil!
Prickly Pear Cactus Oil- is known for its high concentration of antioxidants, helping to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and acne. Rich in essential fatty acids for a hydrated, youthful, glowing skin.
Coq10 - A powerful antioxidant that is fat-soluble and found in human cells. Which helps to brighten, reverse sun damage, promote collagen production, repair, and regenerate skin.
Milk Thistle Seed Oil- An excellent source of silymarin known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Silymarin's anti-inflammatory properties soothe and calm the skin, reducing redness and irritation. It protects the skin from oxidative damage and premature aging.
Sea Buckthorn Oil- High in vitamins C, A, and E, rich in gamma-linolenic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid that aids in blood circulation and reduces signs of aging.
Neroli- Known for its antimicrobial, antifungal, and antioxidant properties. Which may help reduce acne breakouts and skin irritation. Helps to fade dark spots and maintains moisture.

Usage: Use daily on the face and neck. I don’t use this at night as I let my skin “breathe” and balance itself out during sleep. Then, in the morning, I either just splash my face with water or use a moisturizing toner. Next, apply vitamin C serum and mineral-based broad-spectrum sunscreen if you're into that.
