Why you need to be using Vitamin C topically- NOW!!!


Vitamin C is critical for your body and plays an important role in maintaining healthy, resilient skin. While young skin is full of Vitamin C, ageing skin naturally loses this nutrient over time. Other factors like exposure to UV light, pollutants and cigarette smoke compound the decline of Vitamin C, contributing to signs of aging. The good news is that you can fight back by replenishing your skin’s Vitamin C levels to help to combat and even reverse time’s effect on your face!
New Generation technology combined with carefully selected botanicals and the highly effective hydrating properties of hyaluronic acid come together in our Vitamin C serum. 
When it comes to treating age spots, you don’t always need chemical peels and lasers – it turns out Vitamin C can have similar results! Age spots are essentially sun damage and Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, shown to reduce the number of sunburned cells as well as reverse age-related damage to skin. 

Life Extension Magazine further explains some of the key benefits to using Vitamin C:
The amount of collagen in the skin tends to decline with age, an ongoing process that is accelerated by a number of factors like sunlight, smoking, free radicals, and inflammation.

As the synthesis of new collagen slows down, topical vitamin C provides one of the most effective ways to boost collagen synthesis and slow its degradation.

While oral supplementation with vitamin C is important for maintaining one’s overall health, it is not very effective at increasing skin concentrations of vitamin C, especially as levels of vitamin C in the skin decline with aging.

The most effective method for replenishing vitamin C in the skin is therefore to go straight to the source, and apply it directly to the skin.

When topically applied, vitamin C provides a skin-rejuvenating effect by improving collagen synthesis in the skin that slows down with aging, as well as limiting skin damage from free radicals.

Applying topical vitamin C to the skin is 20 times more effective than oral ingestion. Simply applying vitamin C daily for three days can achieve optimal levels in the skin.

Rejuvenating the skin by constantly replenishing vitamin C stores can therefore help maintain healthy, younger-looking skin, especially as we get older.

Concentrated tea extracts provide complementary skin-beautifying effects by protecting against damage from UV light and free radicals.
