5 reasons you need vitamin C in your skin-care routine

It’s Vitamin C Month at Sanctuary Day Spas! Vitamin C is well-known for its health benefits, but did you know it also offers a number of benefits for your skin?

Whether you have dry, oily or combination skin, the antioxidant can add a healthy boost to your skin. Specifically, it’s known to:

  • Improve texture and reduce redness – Its anti-inflammatory properties help to soothe the skin, improve its overall texture, and reduce puffiness and redness.
  • Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate – Few products can hydrate thirsty or dehydrated skin like vitamin C!
  • Fade hyperpigmentation – Vitamin C can help fade unwanted dark spots and reduce general dullness, giving skin a youthful glow.
  • Reduce signs of aging – Vitamin C is one of the best anti-aging ingredients available, boosting collagen and elastin production and helping to keep the skin plump and firm. Bonus: It can diminish fine lines, too!
  • Promote healing – The vitamin has shown promise in healing wounds and fading scars.

Over the past few decades, we’ve become one of the most trusted brands in Canada’s spa industry. We continue to embrace the latest advancements in skin care, including the holy grail that is vitamin C! We offer several facials featuring the powerhouse vitamin.

Illuminate your skin

Our Vital C facial combines revolutionary Tri-C Complex and a unique blend of hydrating ingredients from Image Skincare – perfect for treating rosacea, dry or dehydrated, aging and sun-damaged skin.

Using Guinot products, our Radiant Refining facial minimizes visible signs of aging while adding radiance to your complexion. The blend of polyhydroxy acids and alpha hydroxy acids work together to lighten dark spots and brighten the skin.

Embrace your age

Look your best at any age with our Pro Collagen facial, which enlists the help of a powerful vitamin C-enriched anti-aging serum that stimulates cell regeneration, followed by an active pro-collagen mask by Guinot. The result? A radiant and youthful glow!

Last, but certainly not least, our Lifting Replenishing facial uses a dual exfoliation process featuring Swiss Line products: first, a mechanical exfoliant with vitamins C and E removes dead skin, then an enzymatic exfoliant with green tea and rosemary leaf reveals even smoother skin, allowing for deeper penetration of active ingredients. The lifting cure ampoule increases oxygen in the cells for improved regeneration, while the mask contains hyaluronic acid. A boost of radiance to the skin? Yes, please!
