VITAMIN C AFFECTS SKIN AGING.

WHY VITAMIN “C” FACIAL?

Skin aging is greatly influenced by several factors including genetics, environment (e.g., sun exposure) and lifestyle (e.g., diet and smoking).

Skin aging affects both the function and the appearance of the skin.

Signs of skin aging include fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, thinning skin (atrophy) and broken blood vessels.

These dermal changes have been noted by a number of studies that investigated the relationship between nutrient intake and skin health or photoprotection.

One of the reasons why a higher level of vitamin C intake may be associated with a better skin-aging appearance is due to the antioxidant activity of this nutrient. Another explanation may lie in the photo-protective effect of vitamin C on the skin, which has been documented in a number of well-designed studies.

Vitamin “C” is a powerful antioxidant that helps neutralize the damaging effects of free radicals, stress and sunlight. Vitamin “C” stimulates the growth of collagen, which is responsible for maintaining elasticity and this is why we highly recommend this facial as a part of your Vitamin C program.
