The Anti-Aging effects of Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an essential part of skin health. Throughout history, women have found ways to incorporate Vitamin C into their beauty regimens enjoying their anti-aging effects. Why is it all about the C? Because, Vitamin C is one of the best anti-aging weapons there is supporting healthy collagen.
Collagen works symbiotically with elastin to support the skin. Providing form, firmness and strength to the skin. Elastin gives skin its flexibility. Collagen is just one of thousands of different proteins in the body. Most other proteins occur in smaller amounts. The most abundant protein is collagen. It is the main connective tissue that holds us together found in bones, teeth, blood vessels and cartilage.
The best Vitamin C for skin care is to use it topically. While Vitamin C is a vital nutrient for general health, when ingested very little will reach the skin. Vitamin C levels in the skin will diminish with age. When applied topically via serums and cremes it will combat collagen deterioration and oxidative stress and is found to be 20 times more effective on the skin.
Because of its photo- rejuvenation benefits Vitamin C has also been found to be a very potent antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals in the skin. If your skin is over stressed from photodamage, environmental pollutants, smoking or anti-inflammatory conditions Vitamin C will help sooth, repair and rejuvenate your skin. Since Vitamin C is a natural moisturizer, it will provide your skin with much needed hydration.
