Vitamin C is touted as one of the best anti-aging ingredients on the market — and the key to maintaining a smooth, even, and glowing complexion. Although you’re probably getting vitamin C in your diet, there’s no way to guarantee that it’s going straight to your skin. Using serums and other topical products is the most direct way to reap these benefits.
1. Skin hydration
It has been shown to have a hydrating effect on skin, decreasing epidermal water loss and allowing your skin to retain moisture. It acts by enhancing the production of lipids in the cells1. Important for these summer months!
2. Improves inflammatory skin conditions
Vitamin C has been shown to treat a variety of inflammatory skin conditions, minimising redness and creating a more even complexion. It improves skin barrier integrity as well as underlying inflammation and swelling by providing greater nutritional support.1
3. Helps reduce hyperpigmentation
Vitamin C can impede melanin production1. This can help reduce hyperpigmentation including sun and aging spots. How wonderful!
It boots collagen production1 resulting in an overall tightening effect! Combining this with a microneedling facial is a great way to reduce the appearance of fine line and wrinkles.
5. Protects against sun damage and promotes healing
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant1 which helps to protect health skin cells by making free radicals harmless. Sun damage is caused by these free radicals.
How can The Cosmetic Specialists help?
By using the combination of microneedling and a vitamin C serum!!!
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that works by causing a slight injury to the skin which responds by making new collagen-rich tissue that is more even in tone and texture.
Using this method, it heavily INCREASES THE ABSORPTION OF VITAMIN C BY 80% AS OPPOSED TO 8%.
