How Do Vitamin C Products Affect The Aging Process?

December 23, 2016

Whenever Dr. Oz endorses a product, the whole country takes notice, even if he may sometimes exaggerate just to add to his performance. However, when America’s TV doc claimed recently that Vitamin C products can “drop a decade from your face,” he was 100% accurate! Vitamin C, also called ascorbic acid, is an antioxidant that fights off free radicals, which are groups of atoms that can start a chain-reaction of destruction inside and outside the body. The human body makes its own antioxidants, but it’s not enough to save your skin from the ravages of time; for that, you need Vitamin C skin care.

How do you get the natural anti-aging skin care benefits of Vitamin C? You can eat a lot of oranges, strawberries, and spinach, or you can take Vitamin supplements. But there’s a better way: topical creams containing Vitamin C can be applied directly to the skin to keep your skin supple and youthful. In fact, the latest skin care serums combine Vitamin C with other natural anti-aging skin care products to fight the free radicals that age your skin prematurely. Here’s a brief look at the benefits of Vitamin C products for your skin

  • Vitamin C Products for Wrinkles: Collagen in your body provides elasticity for your skin to stretch and bounce back, and young people have tons of it in their skin. As we age, collagen production declines, and our skin doesn’t bounce back so much. Topical Vitamin C products fight the effects of aging at a cellular level.
  • Vitamin C Products for Age Spots: Studies have shown that Vitamin C skin care serums and creams can not only prevent age spots, but also fade them. Age spots are unsightly skin discolorations caused by exposure to the sun’s UV rays. Vitamin C skin care helps sunscreen do a more thorough job of blocking the harmful UV rays, as well.

Simply stated, aging depletes the Vitamin C content in both the epidermis and the dermis, and you should apply Vitamin C in a 20% topical formulation at least twice a week.

For such a popular skin care ingredient, there’s a lot going on with HA, so beware of love at first use! There are more layers to using HA than the simple equation, Dry Skin + Hyaluronic Acid = Hydrated Skin. In some conditions, the intended results can actually backfire. Think the opposite of clear, dewy, plump skin. So how do you use HA properly? 

First - Debunking Common Myths about HA 

Hyaluronic Acid is not actually an acid, like glycolic or salicylic acid that exfoliates the skin. HA is a complex sugar, known as a polysaccharide, that occurs naturally in the body providing hydration for our joints, hair, eyes and especially the skin.
