Vitamin C~The Magic Eraser

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

So, we all know of and love the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. It cleans up messes, stains, and grime leaving our homes sparkling clean. (Or at least the visible parts 😉 )   But have you ever wished there was a magic eraser you could take to your scars or stretch marks?  I know I have! After giving birth to three beautiful children, I was left with dark, deep stretch marks that I have tried almost everything on to get rid of.

Fortunately, there is hope! I am on the journey to lose weight currently, and the more weight I lose (even if only a couple pounds at a time), the more obvious my stretch marks have been. That was, until recently. I was given Vitamin C Serum through Tomoson by La Beatue and was using it regularly on my face for a couple weeks when I received a second bottle of Vitamin C serum from Mystellic Beauty Natures Best. Of course I was already using a serum on my face and neck that I liked, so I started to think.

In an earlier post I told you how Vitamin C is key in fighting free radicals and helping rebuild skin cells by encouraging the growth of Collagen. Well, I continued by reading the product description on Amazon to see what it said, it included:

  • Removing Toxins & creating Collagen, Diminishing fine Lines & Wrinkles.
  • Organic Ingredients make this product Perfect for all Skin types, dry, oily, sensitive.
  • Reduces acne by removing toxins & creating collagen for firmer, plumper, healthier skin.
  • Minimizes Redness of scars and acne by lightening pigment showing a more youthful you.
  • Instantly gain a smoother complexion and tighter skin for a more radiant beautiful you.
  • Antioxidants reduce skin damage caused by years of aging, uv rays & pollution.
  • Reverses the effects of aging, reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Stimulate the synthesis of collagen making your skin look years younger, firmer, & more vibrant

It got me thinking. If it can do all those things for my face, can you imagine what it can do for stretch marks? If it can help regenerate skin filling in wrinkles and evening out skin tone, why not on stretch marks too? If it can help lighten (or minimize) red marks on the face, why not those unsightly purple/red marks?

Well, I gave it a try. I started applying Nature’s Best Vitamin C Serum every day, twice a day. It only took a few days to see it starting to work. It wasn’t anything monumental,just my smaller marks getting lighter-but it was all the confirmation I needed to keep using it. It has now been two weeks-I will show you the before and after pictures and let you judge them for yourself, but I have to say, I am impressed. My marks are getting lighter, the “pits” left from the marks are getting shallower, and it visibly seems like my stretch marks are really starting to “go away.”

These are the before pictures-you’ll notice the lines are deep and dark.

Here-in the after pictures, the lines are still “purpley,” but they are starting to fade and are much shallower than before.

I would like to point out that it can take 6 months to a year to get full effects, so for only using it for two weeks-these results are phenomenal I would also like to state, that no one person is the same, so where one person may see fast results, others may have to be patient and use the serum for a few months before they see anything. It all depends on age, how long you have had the marks, and how regularly you use the serum.

How to Use:

In this case, it is very similar to how you would use it when applying it to your face.

1. Make sure your marks are clean and dry.

2. Apply 2-3 drops (for larger areas, 4-6 can be used) evenly over the affected area.

3. Wait for the area to dry before applying moisturizer as usual and dressing.

This method works on the belly, thighs, chest area, upper arms, or anywhere you may have skin damage.

*Best Results are achieved when used twice a day, daily.

Although I feel the “best on the market” claim is a bit presumptuous, I do believe they are up there as far as quality. The only important thing you need to consider when you are choosing your Vitamin C, is that it needs to be fresh in order to work well. This is why it is recommended to order directly from a manufacturer/seller opposed to buying from a store where it may have sat for months before being purchased.

At $22.95 it is again, as the one talked about in my last post, very budget friendly. At 18% Vitamin C, it is a little thicker than the “stronger” serums on the market and it is again, a great starter serum, or great for areas, such as the tummy because it does not run as much as a thinner serum and absorbs faster/more effectively.
