A Photo blog on Motherhood

From conception to delivery there were many times we'd ask ourselves, "How worse can it get?" "Will it get any more painful than this?"

Why Do You Need To Check The Label First?

Mothers like me always need to make wise choices about the food, and beverages we give our children. And for our child's protection, we should check the label of the product first so that we know exactly the nutrient content of the food our children eats.

The Intriguing Benefits and Concerns of Vitamin C Serum

Brief Detail about Vitamin C Serum

Vitamin C serum is a high-quality version of vitamin C which means that this mixture contains a high concentration of the element. This chemical mixture has been created to achieve an oil free surface although the whole formula is dependent on the mixture of water and oil. This item is prevalent for people who have sensitive skin although the original mixture can cause irritation.

Vitamin C serum is mainly used in beauty products which are of premium quality as its effect doesn't fade out in a small period. There are ample amount of benefits associated with this chemical compound and because of this reason is widely used in skin care products. Vitamin C is a free radical combatant, and it is an essential element that strengthens the immune system of the body. Although it loses its power when exposed to air which is a negative side of this element but this phenomenon only happens  when it used in skin care product.

So Vitamin C serums are used in beauty products for its potency, and it includes magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, ascorbyl palmitate, and L-ascorbic acid. The L-ascorbic acid concentration helps the cream from getting washed away by air. It synthesizes the collagen present in the upper surface of the body. However, with ages the concentration level decreases, so these beauty products with vitamin C serum are widely needed. Most of the skin care manufactured goods are available in different concentration level, and 20% percent concentration is the best and ultimate level. Beyond 20% concentration level may cause side effect in the skin leading irritation, rash and other harmful effects.

Why Do Some People Look Younger Than Their Years?

There is a saying that you’re only as old as you feel. But that youthful feeling can quickly disappear if your reflection starts to give away the truth of your age. The passage of time can be quite unkind on our appearance. So how do celebrities and other young looking people manage to hide it so well? Here are just some of the tricks they use to give the illusion of youth:

Great Skin Care
It is often the skin that reveals our real age. As time passes, the cells age. This gives a drier look to the skin. Fine lines and even wrinkles can appear. It is possible to protect the skin from some of the effects of environmental damage. An excellent skin care routine will keep skin clean and clear. Buffs and scrubs remove the oldest layers of skin. Moisturizing will then enhance the appearance of what is left. Tinted creams rather than tanning will help avoid that damaged look from UV light.
