Our skin benefits from Vitamin C for its anti aging, rejuvenation benefits and by its ability to help stimulate and produce collagen protein which is vital for cell growth and our skins foundation strength.
Vitamin C is an essential therapy for anti aging since natural collagen production decreases as we age.
This normal decrease in collagen causes the structure of the skin to breakdown, thin, develop sagging, and cause wrinkles to develop.
To replenish your skin’s vitamin C levels look for the highest quality topical product that comes in the only useful form of Vitamin C that is beneficial to the body ( L-Ascorbic Acid).
Pay attention to the actual percent of this active ingredient used in the formula (3-25%), and that the packaging is airtight and protected from light to keep it stable.
Vitamin C skin care treatments help to neutralize free radical damage before they have a chance to contribute to signs of aging and it’s also known to be helpful and reverse age-related damage.
This powerful nutrient is especially useful in a natural acne treatment. It’s a natural wound healer so it helps repair damaged skin, kills bacteria, and cuts inflammation.
Vitamin c skin care products come in many topical varieties to choose from such as creams, lotions, gels, serums, powders, and crystals.
Check labels and become familiar with natural and synthetic varieties–For example, a label that has Vitamin C as an ingredient does not mean it’s in the form of L-Ascorbic acid.
Since levels of effectiveness can vary greatly when selecting a product it is important to pick a trustworthy source and be aware of expiration dates and proper storage.
Look for stable L-Ascorbic Acid products. Many products will not be successful in delivering the full benefits of the Vitamin C if the concentration levels are too low to do much good and stabilization methods used have not been met to prevent exposure to light, oxygen, and other factors.
Due to the sensitivity of this nutrient when it becomes oxidized, it tends to degrade, breakdown and decline in its effectiveness. Heat and processing methods will also destroy its strength.
This all determines rejuvenation benefits and how successful the treatments will produce good results.
Good skin care can be achieved with the use of vitamin supplements both inside and out.
Vitamin C is very effective in working together with multiple antioxidants and minerals to help combat aging and gain even better results.
Always try to eat a well balanced diet of vitamin c foods.
A good health vitamin along with a topical vitamin c supplement in your skin care regime will help lay the foundation to beautiful and healthy skin.
