Vitamin C Everyday May Keep the Wrinkles Away
Do you wish your skin looked younger? Aging is a part of life, but wrinkles don’t have to be. If over-the-counter skin treatments haven’t helped you, prescription treatments have been too harsh on your skin, and cosmetic surgery isn’t in your budget, consider a natural powerhouse: Vitamin C Serum.
Your mother may have told you to take vitamin C for a cold, but she probably failed to mention you should also apply it to your skin! Vitamin C is a vital molecule for skin health and is a normal skin component, but natural aging and excessive exposure to UV light (too much sunbathing) or exposure to pollutants (smoking) decreases vitamin C content in skin. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, a ninja at the cellular level, fighting oxidative damage to cells, including skin cells. What exactly does Vitamin C do?
Helps produce collagen, a part of the connective tissue in skin that helps with skin firmness and elasticity. Topical vitamin C application can stimulate collagen production, thereby reducing and preventing wrinkles.
Protects against UV damage. The antioxidant ability of vitamin C protects against UV-induced damage caused by free radicals. Although vitamin C limits the damage from sun exposure, it is not a “sunscreen.” However, topically applied vitamin C can help to counteract hyperpigmentation and sun spotting caused from getting too much sun.
Has the ability to repair and renew cells by attacking free radicals, which harm healthy cells. For example, vitamin C helps with wound healing and even scar reduction.
Topically applied vitamin C has not demonstrated any negative side effects, but it is best to consult a doctor before incorporating any new health supplements.
If you’re looking for a safe and natural option for improving your skin’s appearance, look no further than vitamin C serum, one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants.
