Many of us don’t want to age, but it’s a fact of life and so we find ourselves looking for beauty products that help slow the aging process. After all, our skin seems to be the one place aging shows soonest.
There are many expensive products on the market, but it’s time for you to discover the benefits of Vitamin C. How many of you even knew that Vitamin C was so beneficial to the skin?
Vitamin C comes in a number of forms including ascorbic acid, L-Ascorbic acid, L-ascorbyl-2-sulfate, L-ascorbic acid, and Ascorbyl palmitate.
5 Key Attributes of Vitamin C
- There have been numerous clinical studies involving Vitamin C in relation to anti-inflammatory and anti-aging.
- It’s a main player in collagen synthesis because of its ability to build collagen and speed up the healing process.
- When you add Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, to your skin it will help your skin remove the free radicals, which are known to cause skin cell damage.
- It has also been found that when Vitamin C is applied after a sunburn it can cause a 50 percent quicker reduction in the redness of the sunburn, than areas that were not treated by Vitamin C.
In addition, clinical studies have shown inflammatory conditions like eczema and psoriasis improve when Vitamin C is used.
When you add skin care products that contain Vitamin C to your skin care regimen you can begin to enjoy healthier, glowing skin.
Best Way to Use Vitamin C is to Apply Directly to the Skin
- Topical application use of Vitamin C will revitalize the skin and show significant improvement in your skin tone and skin texture, as a result of collagenosis or collagen production.
- When you have an increase in collagen in your skin, it will appear tighter and more ageless.
- Vitamin C will also help to protect your skin against damage from UVB rays and it will help combat sun damage that can lead to wrinkles.
The interest in Vitamin C as an ingredient in cosmetics and skin care is because of its ability to suppress free radicals caused by sun exposure. It was also discovered that Vitamin C improves skin darkening (hyperpigmentation) conditions like age spots, sun damage, and melasma.
It is important to note that Vitamin C can become oxidized if it’s exposed to air, which causes it to lose its efficacy. This means that you will want to make sure that you are using Vitamin C products that are fresh and come with an expiration date.
If there is a change to the color of your product, you should discontinue use and discard the remaining product.
We all want to look our best. We want our skin to be smooth and supple, and we would like to keep the wrinkles at bay for as long as possible. Using products that contain Vitamin C is a great way to do just that.
