Vitamin C and the skin

OK i have always know that Vitamin C is good for your health. Internally Vitamin C strengths the immune system and protects from disease and reduces risk of stroke.   I recently learned just how great it can be for your skin too.  Vitamin C plays a vital role in maintaining our skin.  Vitamin C is an antioxidant that slows the rate of free radical damage.    Free radicals damage the skins collagen and causes dryness, fine lines, and wrinkles. Collagen is a key proteins that aids in the growth of cells and blood vessels and gives skin its firmness and strength.  By using Vitamin C topically it stimulates  the fibroblasts that increases collagen production and helps the skin repair itself.  Vitamin C topically applied to the skin is 10x more beneficial the the skin then taken orally.  I started using PCA C-Quench http://www.pcaskin.com/products/daily-care-products/correct/c-quench-antioxidant-serum-phaze-15.html A few weeks ago.  I have noticed a difference in texture and my skin looks brighter. 

 

Next time you are in for a facial ask your Esty what she would recommend!

Have a super great day!
