What do you do if you’re struggling with aging skin?
Are you aging? We all are! (Yup! That was a trick question.) Whether you’re 21 or 81 or somewhere in between, you’re getting older and it’s affecting your skin.
Take a look in the mirror — what signs of aging do you see? Fine lines, wrinkles, oily skin, dry skin, discolorations? If they aren’t there now, they’ll most likely be there down the road. Now you’re probably wondering if there are ways to prevent this damage from happening or ways to reverse it… Of course there are!
Eating a well-balanced diet made up of REAL food, exercising regularly, and drinking plenty of water will do wonders to not only your skin, but also your entire body. You will look better, feel better and live longer.
Speaking of real food and water… Using all-natural, oil-based skincare products will also do A LOT for your skin. Your skin is REAL, so why not feed it REAL skin food? Part of what you put on your skin will be absorbed, so you should be aware of what’s in those products. Preservatives, fragrance, emulsifiers and other chemicals can damage your skin. You might not see it or feel it right away, but the harm is happening, especially at the microscopic cellular level.
Many natural skincare products are water-based. So are many anti-aging products. And guess what? Water-based products can age you faster! Drinking water is great for the inside and outside of your body. But applying water-based products to the outside of your body — to your skin — will dehydrate it. Water is not fat soluble, so the skin can’t absorb it. When it evaporates, it takes some of your skin’s natural oils (called sebum) with it. This leads to dry skin and an overgrowth of bad bacteria. The surface can then become easily irritated.
If your skin is oily or dry or BOTH and irritated, you need to feed it real food. The best food to put on your skin is oil — olive, coconut, pomegranate, jojoba, emu and more. They’re similar to the oil your skin naturally creates and can be easily absorbed into the deeper layers.
So… you’re looking for skincare that is all-natural, contains real food, is oil-based, doesn’t have water, and will get you anti-aging results… You know what? I have something that fits that very description! (Of course I do!)
A Ground-Breaking Vitamin C Serum
A few years ago, my friend Liz Wolfe — aka Real Food Liz — approached me about creating a vitamin C serum to help with anti-aging. There were many on the market, but we didn’t feel comfortable using them. They were water-based and contained all kinds of harmful ingredients. And the vitamin C they contained was a fractionated part of the vitamin, like L-ascorbic acid. L-ascorbic acid can do really good things, but it can also irritate the skin. That’s why vitamin C serums have a percentage listed on the label, so you can decided whether or not that level will negatively affect your skin. However…
The serum Liz and I created doesn’t have a percentage. Why? It’s COMPLETELY different than other vitamin C serums. It’s made with the WHOLE vitamin. When I started researching ingredients to use, I looked and looked and looked. And then one day it hit me! I should just do what I always do: use real food. So Liz and I made a list of oils we wanted to include and a list of fruits packed with vitamin C.
After testing different batches, we finally came up with the perfect blend of vitamin C-infused oils and essential oils. We came up with… C-ex™ Vitamin C Serum. Some of you have been using it for years and have reaped many benefits from it. If you’ve tried it, you know that Liz and I raised the bar for vitamin C serums, just by doing what we always do: harnessing the power of REAL food.

Vitamin C goodness includes:
- It can help combat wrinkles, blotches, large pores and other skin blemishes.
- It’s key to the production of collagen. Collagen is a protein that aids in the growth of cells and blood vessels, and it gives skin its firmness and strength.
- It is an antioxidant that slows the rate of free-radical damage.
- Topical vitamin C can also provide phytoprotection — protection from the harmful effect of the sun. It contains antioxidants that neutralize free radicals on the cell membranes of the skin. (It does not absorb light, so do not consider it a sunscreen. Consider it a great addition to protect your skin from the sun.)
Benefits of infused oils and essential oils:
- Hydrating and moisturizing
- Cell regeneration
- Even out skin tone
- Diminish lines
