Natures Best Vitamin C Serum Review

Nature’s Best Vitamin C Serum Review

Natures Best Vitamin C Serum ReviewDisclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

As we all age, it becomes more and more important to protect our skin from free radicals – the evil little sources of skin damage that come from sun exposure, drinking, smoking, age and all kinds of other environmental factors. That’s why you’ve heard so much about antioxidants – they help fight the oxidizing effect of free radicals, which – not to get too scientific – is when they steal from your existing healthy cells to try to make themselves “complete”, causing a breakdown of your skin cells.

Getting Naturally Beautiful with Rodan + Fields

Rodan + Fields Redefine Eye ClothsIn the beauty world, makeup represents outer beauty while skincare handles inner beauty. (Of course, real inner beauty is a lot more than moisturizing daily, but here we stick to the simple stuff.) One of my beauty goals this year is to get more naturally, just-waking-up beautiful. That journey starts and ends with great skincare.

Enter Rodan + Fields, a skincare company created by dermatologists Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields (who created Proactiv – what more credibility do you need than that?). I’m into science – I trust it – so I love knowing that there’s some good healthy research behind my skincare products, and Rodan + Fields has research in spades.
