• Environmental Defense: Shields against premature aging caused by UV rays and environmental pollutants.

  • Radiant Complexion: Diminishes hyperpigmentation for a brighter, more even skin tone.

  • Long-Lasting Hydration: Enriched with hyaluronic acid and aloe to keep your skin plump and moisturized.

How It Works

For optimum protection throughout the day, use every morning. If preferred, apply twice daily (AM and PM). After cleansing, apply a thin layer of serum to the face, neck, and chest, and massage until fully absorbed.

Apply your products in order from thinnest to thickest, waiting one minute between each layer. Follow with a gentle moisturizer to seal in the serums.

Due to natural variations in ingredients like ferulic acid and natural extracts, the color, scent, and texture of each batch may vary slightly.

We recommend using the serum within 2-3 months of opening and storing it in a cool, dark place to maintain freshness. You can store both opened and unopened bottles in the fridge to extend their shelf life. If you purchase a backup bottle, keep it refrigerated until use. We advise against keeping more than one backup bottle of GlowLuv's serum at a time, as vitamin C is very delicate.

For the Inquisitive

Why does GlowLuv use 15% L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)?

L-Ascorbic Acid, also known as Vitamin C, is one of nature’s best antioxidants and indeed, one of the primary defenses against UV damage employed by the skin. Special receptors in the skin pull Vitamin C out of your bloodstream to pack your skin full of this protective antioxidant which is also the most plentiful antioxidant in the skin (Pullar et al. 2017). The number one cause of premature aging of the skin is UV damage from the sun’s rays. When your skin is exposed to UV rays, free radicals are spawned. These free radicals are like ricocheting bullets tearing up collagen and even DNA leading to photoaged skin and skin cancers. Fine lines and wrinkles, sunspots, ruptured blood vessels, enlarged pores, and rough coarse skin are some of the features of photoaged skin.

Should I use GlowLuv with sunscreen?

We recommend using both the GlowLuv serum and sunscreen. A good broad-spectrum SPF is one of the most important things you can do to prevent photoaged skin. However, even good sunscreens only block about half of the free radicals spawned from UV exposure. Antioxidant Vitamin C serums help neutralize free radicals to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

As Vitamin C in the skin is quickly depleted by fighting UV damage or other free radical generating activities such as smoke and pollution throughout the day, topical Vitamin C application twice a day may be useful to replenish levels when engaged in outdoors activities. Topical Vitamin C and sunscreen work by differing mechanisms to protect your skin so the combination is ideal.

How does vitamin c brighten and even out my skin tone?

Another benefit of Vitamin C is that it can brighten and even out your skin tone by treating hyperpigmentation. This is not only because Vitamin C can fight UV damage which is a main cause of hyperpigmentation, but also because it can inhibit an enzyme (tyrosinase) involved in skin pigment production. A concentration of at least 10% Ascorbic acid is recommended to get maximal benefits against UV induced hyperpigmentation.

Can I use GlowLuv while pregnant or lactating?

Yes. Vitamin C is rated Category A in pregnancy by the FDA which means Vitamin C has been evaluated by clinical trials in pregnant women and deemed safe. The actives including Vitamin E, Ferulic Acid, and Hyaluronic Acid are all considered generally safe to use topically during pregnancy and lactation. However, it is always advisable to check with your doctor regarding skin care products and ingredients.
