Vitamin C and Your Skin
Vitamin C is the main antioxidant in the skin and helps to make collagen as well as stop it being broken down. The sun, pollution and smoking can all cause damage to the skin and so called "oxidative stress". This all leads to a cascade of events that causes photo-damage, premature ageing of the skin and even predispose you to skin cancer.
Unlike plants, humans are unable to make vitamin C so we rely entirely on diet or applying it to our skin topically. Even with high intake of vitamin C our body is only able to absorb a small amount and only a fraction will be active in our skin. For all these reasons it is so important to apply a good quality vitamin C serum to our skin!
I like to use "the perfect C" serum on myself and my patients. The formulation has 20% vitamin C, which is the strongest and most effective available on the market. Benefits include:
Stimulates the skin to produce its natural moisturisers
Evens and luminises skin tone, reduces dark sports and pigmentation
Provides essential components to assist with collagen synthesis
Assists with skin lightening and brightening
Improves acne in 80% of patients
Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles
Decreases risks from UVA/UVB damage
Enhances results with the perfect peel
Anti- inflammatory for conditions like acne and rosacea
