The Real Skin-Smoothing Deal
I hinted at the top dog of skin care vitamins...
This vitamin takes saggy, droopy skin and breathes new life into it, plumping and filling
skin right back up to a youthful appearance.
If you said Vitamin C, you are right on the money.
Not only does Vitamin C help repair sun damage and add an extra layer of
protection against UV rays, like its cousin Vitamin E...
But Vitamin C also improves collagen synthesis.
Collagen is the main building block of healthy skin tissue that bounces back and stays
plump and lifted.
As you get older, collagen production decreases, which is why wrinkles and droopy skin
become a problem.
In short, Vitamin C is the real skin-smoothing deal.
But how do you get enough of the ‘C’ to nourish and sustain your healthy, vibrant skin?
Vitamin C is a popular ingredient in tons of creams, serums, and oils, but there are two
big reasons why these topical products aren’t the best option...
1. Vitamin C’s most common form, L-ascorbic acid, is highly unstable when exposed to
oxygen, making it useless when applied directly to your skin.
2. Topical solutions don’t penetrate the skin deep enough to make a difference.
Vitamin C is found in both the epidermis (outer layer of skin) and deep in the dermis
(inner layer of skin), which means rubbing lotion likely won’t reach the dermis.
In fact, unless you want to directly inject Vitamin C into your body with needles, the
most effective way to saturate your skin cells is orally.
