C2S Skin Balancing Serum is a synergistic blend of stabilized Vitamin C and salicylic acid developed to target and normalize problem skin areas and restore sebum (skin's natural oil) balance without over-drying. Various skin types are prone to irritation, hyper-pigmentation (blotchiness) inflammatory lesions and various grades of acne. C2S, with its two forms of stable Vitamin C (C2) + Salicylic Acid (S) helps to normalize problem skin areas while at the same time providing advanced skin protection from free-radicals which are known to cause skin aging and other complications.
C2S Skin Balancing Serum contains two forms of Vitamin C: a water soluble form (ascorbic acid) and an oil soluble form (ascorbyl palmitate).
Why use two forms of Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is poorly absorbed through the skin, so by using a water-soluble and oil soluble form of the vitamin, we maximize the amount of Vitamin C that penetrates to the deeper layers of the epidermis. C2S also contains Vitamin E (another potent antioxidant) which works synergistically with Vitamin C in combating free radicals that damage and prematurely age the skin.
Directions: The best time to apply C2S Skin Balancing Serum is at night after cleansing. Place two to three drops of C2S into the palm of your hand. Using the index and middle fingers of the other hand, apply the C2S on those areas of the face and neck needing the greatest improvement of fine lines and wrinkles, oily areas and/or areas of irritation. After application, apply your moisturizer (i.e. LRS - Lipid Recovery Serum. If desired, use in the morning under your makeup and/or moisturizer.
