Brightening C Serum - Viva Organics - Helps to combat hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and sunspots while also supporting collagen production.

Going back to the start doesn’t mean starting with a blank slate, but we don’t have to carry everything with us. Vitamin C is critical for our body and plays an important role in maintaining healthy, resilient skin. While young skin is full of vitamin C, aging skin naturally loses this nutrient over time. Other factors like exposure to UV light, pollutants and cigarette smoke compound the decline of vitamin C, contributing to aging of skin.

The good news is that you can replenish your skin’s vitamin C levels with rosehip oil, sweet almond oil, evening primrose oil, and vitamin e, this serum helps to combat serious dark areas of the skin and even reverse skin damage.
