Throughout history men and women have been enjoying the amazing anti-aging benefits of vitamin C. Sourced from nature, vitamin C is found in many fruits and berries. In ancient Tibet, sea buckthorn berries rich in vitamin C were applied to the skin for anti-aging effects. Rose hips, also known for their high levels of vitamin C, were used for skin rejuvenation.
Vitamin C has come to be known as an important nutrient for overall health in general. In it’s oral form it’s an antioxidant with amazing health benefits ranging from disease prevention to disease reversal in some cases.
It also plays an important role in skin health. It is a crucial nutrient involved in the production of collagen, the substance below the skin’s surface that helps maintain the firmness of the skin. Levels of collagen reduce as we age, and when the levels of reduction exceed the levels of production, we start to see visible signs of aging.
Vitamin C can be applied directly to the skin’s surface where it is absorbed in higher concentrations than could be achieved through oral ingestion. Studies have shown that direct application to the skin helps to replenish the levels of vitamin C, which in turn helps boost collagen formation and slow it’s breakdown.
An important antioxidant, vitamin C helps to prevent and reverse free radical damage on the skin’s surface. Free radicals are created by sun exposure and pollutants, and can wreck havoc on the skin causing tissue damage and collagen breakdown over time. This manifests as changes in the skin’s appearance in the form of age spots, sun damage, wrinkles and sagging. Vitamin C can help neutralize free radicals in the skin due to it’s low molecular weight, boosting the skin’s natural protection.
Application of Vitamin C directly to the skin’s surface over time results in improvement in the levels of this nutrient within the skin. This in turn can result in a more youthful appearance, reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, increased firmness and skin tightening, and a more lustrous and even skin tone. It can also reduce skin discoloration from age spots and freckles, and reduce acne scarring.
