We had a Glowing Idea!

Hey their gorgeous, so we had an amazing idea. And with your input, we've spent months working on a extremely sweet line of products, just for you. From boosting collagen production to diminishing the signs of ageing to correcting dark spots, this Vitamin C boosting product is a highly efficacious skincare serum with a wide range of benefits.

So to get you ready for its launch, we've decided to demystify  everything Vitamin C to get you up to speed. With all of the myths and misinformation circulating about, it’s important to learn the truth about the benefits of a Vitamin C serum.


Fact: Not All Vitamin C’s are Created Equal

While different forms of Vitamin C have overlapping benefits, Sunkissed Treats often uses Pure Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid) to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, Vitamin C to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles over time and Activated C for lightening and skin discolouration's. Each Sunkissed Treats Vitamin C serum effectively incorporates a form of topical Vitamin C that is carefully selected to maximize its targeted efficacy.

Fiction: The More Vitamin C, the Better

When products have concentrations of L-Ascorbic Acid that are too high, skin can experience irritation. Sunkissed Treats selects the best forms of Vitamin C at concentrations that are both efficacious and gentle.

Fact: Your Skin Needs Topical Vitamin C

Just as Vitamin C is an essential part of your diet, it is also an important step in your skincare routine. The human body does not produce its own Vitamin C but relies on obtaining it through nutritional and topical applications. Vitamin C benefits for skin include stimulating collagen production and neutralising free radicals. Daily use of a balanced and stabilised Vitamin C facial serum will ensure that your skin soaks up all of the perks of this powerful ingredient.

Fiction: Vitamin C Causes Skin Sensitivity to the Sun

In actuality, topical Vitamin C has been demonstrated to be a second line of defense against harmful UVA rays while also helping to bolster skin’s antioxidant defenses. We recommend applying a Vitamin C serum in the morning before adding SPF.

Fact: Vitamin C Products Benefit All Types of Skin

The Vitamin C facial benefits extend to all skin types, including sensitive and dry skin. There are also effective formulations of Vitamin C serums that can help to correct dark spots and post-acne marks.

Fiction: Vitamin C Serums are Not Suitable for Sensitive Skin

At Sunkissed Treats, our Vitamin C serums are designed to be gentle enough for sensitive skin. When first beginning to use facial Vitamin C skincare products, start with a once daily application and gradually build to twice a day. Always consult with your dermatologist when incorporating new skincare products into your routine.

Fact: Store Your Vitamin C Serum in a Cool, Dry Place

Store L-Ascorbic Acid serums in a place other than your bathroom cabinet as they are best kept in an area without humidity. Additionally, the best Vitamin C serums are kept in dark-colored or amber bottles that effectively protect the formula from light.

Fact: Apply Vitamin C Serums Before Your Moisturizer

After you cleanse and tone your skin, apply a thin layer of Vitamin C serum. Smooth it on morning and night before your moisturiser to lock in Vitamin C benefits for skin.
