Why is Vitamin C Good for Your Skin?
You might know about Vitamin C for its ability to bolster immune function. In fact, this amazing substance, found in many kinds of fruits and vegetables and widely offered in supplements, is also an anti-aging powerhouse.
Water-soluble Vitamin C is required for the biosynthesis of collagen. It is a powerful, important antioxidant and has been shown to regenerate other antioxidants within the body, including Vitamin E. Scientist believe that Vitamin C’s ability to reduce the damaging effects of free radicals through its antioxidant activity also helps prevent or delay the development of certain cancers, cardiovascular disease, and other diseases.
It’s also one of the most powerful Skincare ingredients available, whether you are looking for an anti-aging cream, wrinkle serum, or blemish remover.
Facial Cream is the cornerstone of all anti-aging Rituals, yet not all Vitamin C anti-aging Cream is created equal. For Vitamin C to work its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory magic it must be bio-available, meaning the body must be able to absorb it. Sourcing and extraction methods help determine Vitamin C’s bio-availability, as well as the ingredients it’s paired with. Daily use of Facial Cream with bio-available Vitamin C is shown, over time, to help mitigate the effects of sun exposure and environmental toxins by fading discoloration and providing necessary hydration and nutrients to skin. We recommend finding a Facial Cream and Eye Cream you love and sticking with them. When it comes to anti-aging treatments, prevention is always the best medicine.
If you could only use one anti-aging product, our Balancing Oil Serum would be it. As a wrinkle serum ingredient, Bioavailable Vitamin C goes a long way to brighten skin tone, increase collagen levels, and reduce the appearance of fine lines. This is especially true when it is formulated with alchemizing ingredients such as Helichrysum and Squaline, and optimizing lipids, such as Argan and Pomegranate Seed Oils.
We formulated our Facial Toning Serum for Oily & Blemish-prone Skin to infuse complexions with bio-available Vitamin C’s zit-zapping superpowers. Whether your skin is young, or you are dealing with stress and toxins, everyone can use a good blemish remover from time to time. It’s anti-inflammatory properties take out redness and swelling, while its nutrient-dense nature helps repair the skin so that blemishes leave quickly and don’t scar.
Other Ways to Benefit From Vitamin C
Of course, a great Skincare Ritual is deeply enhanced by a great diet. Eating your leafy greens and seasonal fruits and veggies promotes alkalinity, which resolves all manner of skin problems. Staying off sugar and coffee helps too (we suggest supplementing the latter with antioxidant rich, organic Matcha). And, of course, getting plenty of exercise, rest, and water. Also, patience. While you will definitely notice an uptick in your glow factor with the products we mentioned above, most Skincare products take a few weeks to start working at a deeper level, and Vitamin C takes even longer. Give yourself at least six to eight weeks before expecting to see a lasting difference.
