Vitamin C – The Super Antioxidant
Vitamin C is one of the best vitamins to keep you and your skin healthy. Vitamin C is known for keeping our bodies strong and healthy but it can have great effects on our skin. Over the years Vitamin C has been put into many different products but for the skin it can be put in a topical formula. When spread on the face it can help reduce signs of aging and protect against sun damage.
Benefits of Vitamin C
When Vitamin C is put in a topical formula it is known as ascorbic acid which is classed as the most vital antioxidant. Antioxidants main duty is to protect against harmful free radicals which can cause damage. Vitamin C works best for speeding up the natural way the skin repairs itself and eliminates any further damage that could be caused. Vitamin C has been scientifically proven to help repair skin and protect the skin against ageing by:
- - Stimulating collagen production
- - Lowers the chance of inflammation
- - Reducing pigmentation
- - Holding in moisture
- - Strongly protects against UV rays
- - Replenishing Vitamin E
Like all different skincare products, there are many Vitamin C products which claim to make your skin better. The problem is that a lot of the time Vitamin C is found in formulas that are unstable when they come into contact with oxygen which stops it from working at all.
The great thing about Obagi products is that they are all clinically tested and proven. Obagi Professional-C Serums are formulated with Vitamin C in the most stable form it can be which means it absorbs and stays in the skin for longer. This means that the skin is getting the best effects this antioxidant has to offer. Obagi Professional-C Serums come in three different types that are created for different skin types.
