Why Vitamin C? As women age, their skin starts losing elasticity. Fibroblast cells stop producing enough collagen to maintain the same volume of the tissue leading the elastin and collagen chains to break and preventing smooth travelling of the hyaluronic acid between those chains. Hyaluronic acid is responsible for moisture inside the skin. Add to it constant attacks of the cells by free radicals, and - voila - the appearance of lines and wrinkles becomes gradually visible. Hormonal changes in the aging body may also trigger irregularities in melanin production and the dark spots as a result, giving the skin tired and dull appearance. This is where you should do your homework to see which skincare products can effectively slow down the ageing process and even give you a youthful look once again.
It has been researched that Vitamin C is an antioxidant powerhouse that is impressive proving the anti- ageing benefits of topical Vitamin C. The power lies purely in Vitamin C, essential for creating skin firming with wrinkle reduction collagen. Vitamin C also helps restore luminosity while protecting the skin from ageing by free radicals. For those who did not know, Vitamin C also possesses healing, repairing and hydrating properties. That is why, often it gets prescribed for those people who are undergoing Obagi Nu-Derm course. It plays an incredible role of an additional barrier against the UV boosting the effect of whatever sunblock you may wear. Vitamin-C serum should be applied only in the morning as it is activated by the sunlight. Evening application is not recommended as it feels nice on the skin but hardly does anything.
