Vitamin C: Just ONE Thing To Target Aging Skin
Very often I get asked, what is just ONE thing I should be doing to target the signs of aging?
This is a subject of concern to most of us! There may not be one cure all answer, however there is one thing that will benefit us all!
The one thing I tell everyone to include in their skin ritual to target the signs of aging is to use a Vitamin C Serum. Every day. (Yes. Every day.)
Vitamin C neutralizes free radicals that oxidize and thus age our skin. Vitamin C also is absolutely essential to the production of collagen in skin cells, which help support skin structure and delay the signs of aging.
In addition to the above, Vitamin C in skincare has a very long list of other potential skin benefits:
- Provides Hydration
- Helps Repair Wounds
- Helps Brighten Skin
- Helps Reduce Redness
- Helps protect against sun damage
- Promotes collagen Production
- Help Prevent Skin Sagging
- Reduce Hyperpigmentation
Vitamin C, the Unstable Active! - Let's get Nerdy about Vitamin C.
It is very important to note that Vitamin C is an unstable active ingredient. This means that it rapidly oxidizes on its own, and primarily when in liquid form. There are several ways to tackle this oxidization. Namely, pairing vitamin C with a powerful Antioxidant Vitamin E, and Ferulic acid prevents oxidization and helps to stabilize the ingredient. Additionally, choosing airless, opaque packaging further prevents oxidative damage to the ingredient, so you get more bang for your buck. Some formulations opt for you to mix the vitamin C powder into your skincare yourself (think True Botanicals or Drunk Elephant), however, there are also ingredients on the market called "Stable-C". This is a stabilized form of Vitamin C that won't oxidize.
And that's why we formulated our Active Rejuvenation Oasis Serum with Stabilized Vitamin C, E & Ferulic Acid in airless packaging! Additionally, our North African Botanicals like Pomegranate and Date Extracts further work alongside the Vitamin C to prevent oxidization and provide their anti-aging wonder powers, all for you!
