You know you’re doing good things for your overall health when you drink a nice cold glass of orange juice. The benefits of Vitamin C are well documented.
But, did you know it is just as beneficial when you apply Vitamin C in a topical application whether it is in lotions, crèmes, serums or butters?
Vitamin C is a prime ingredient of collagen which is the substance that binds cells together. Sufficient collagen metabolism and production are key attributes of healthy, radiant, younger looking skin.
Ingredients that promote collagen production are widely used in body and skin care products. In fact, collagen depends on Vitamin C which proves the importance for healthy, attractive skin. Stable collagen production fights wrinkles, and ensures evenness in the skin’s tone and texture.
Vitamin C’s also functions as an antioxidant as it is able to protect the skin from damaging free radicals.
In addition, Vitamin C is used in skin care as a strong antioxidant, especially in regards to protecting the skin from sun damage. It strengthens the skin barrier and thickens the dermis. It can expedite the healing of wounds and reduce inflammation. In high concentrations, it can reduce the appearance of skin discoloration.
Most importantly, it promotes collagen production, which subsequently plumps the skin and lends it radiance and smoothness. Dermatologists often use vitamin-C products to enhance the effects of cosmetic treatments, such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
All vitamins are subject to oxidation when used topically, meaning that the vitamins can lose their potency (sometimes drastically) when exposed to the air. In fact, some eye serums Absolutely Natural has studied can lose all benefits in just a few minutes. AN uses a time release, long acting Vitamin C for hours of benefit.
Absolutely Natural’s eye serum contains:
Organic Aloe Vera Leaf Extract, Vitamin C Ester, Amino Peptide Complex, Superoxide Dismutase, Sodium Hyaluronic Acid, Echinacea Angustifolia (Coneflower Extract), Oat Beta Glucan, Allantoin, Orchid Flower Extract, Vitamin E Complex, and Organic Citrus Essential Oil Blend.
A perfect blend of anti-oxidants, free radical scavengers, anti-aging and super hydrating ingredients. It will do wonders for the skin around your eyes diminishing wrinkles and evening skin tone.
I hope you enjoy.
