Get Radiantly Glowing Skin with Vitamin C

27th July, 2011 - Posted by Victoria Girard - No Comments

Vitamin C, in the form of L-ascorbic acid, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate (MAP), or ascorbyl palmitate, has been proven time and time again as a skin transforming ingredient.  It is an antioxidant, a skin brightener, and an anti aging work horse that promotes great skin that glows. file5901261897503

As an antioxidant vitamin C protects your skin from free radical attacks.  Free radicals are unstable molecules that steal atoms from healthy cells causing damage and destruction in their path.  Vitamin C has the ability to stop free radicals in their tracks and keeps them from damaging your skin cells.

As a skin brightener vitamin C counteracts the oxidative process that causes pigmentation changes in the skin.  It helps to create a more even skin tone and instills a beautiful glow.

As an anti-aging work horse vitamin C penetrates deep within the skin where it increases the production of collagen and elastin.  These two crucial proteins are the building blocks of your skin.  When they become brittle you see the damage as fine lines and wrinkles.  By stimulating your collagen and elastin your lines and wrinkles are plumped up from the inside and new ones are averted.
