The regular use of a vitamin C product can combat the appearance of fine lines/wrinkles because the antioxidant-rich vitamin C helps boost collagen production, thereby filling in fine lines and wrinkles. The antioxidant properties of vitamin C are also great for protecting your skin from the sun's UVA and UVB rays.
If you suffer from skin redness or other discoloration of the skin, then a vitamin C serum may also be able to help you achieve a more uniform skin tone and better complexion. Vitamin C is known to help in minimizing those pesky "age spots" as well.
No matter what your age, it's always a good idea to be preemptive about avoiding wrinkles, sagging skin, fine lines, and other signs of aging. The best time to start using any skin care product is before you look like you need it!
Vitamin C can help your skin look younger not only by stimulating collagen production, but by evening out your skin tone and brightening your complexion as well. If you suffer from dry skin, vitamin C is a must. This is especially true if you have tried using moisturizers and cremes in the past, only to find that your skin is still dry and flaky. With a topical vitamin C serum applied on a regular basis, you can enjoy the benefits of improved moisture content and overall hydration.
There are many products on the market containing vitamin C. I prefer the C Plex Time Release Capsules available at Image Matters.
Vitamin C is an erratic ingredient and when exposed to air or light, it begins to oxidize. If you have ever purchased a vitamin C cream or lotion you may have noticed that about a week or so after opening the container, a brown rim has formed around the opening. That is the oxidation process taking place.
C Plex Time Release Capsules are a pure daily dose of vitamin C; each one providing just the right amount of fresh vitamin C every morning with no chance of oxidation.
Apply the C Plex Capsule every morning after cleanser and toner and you will be amazed at how silky your skin feels. Follow each daily application with moisturizer and then wait a few minutes before applying any makeup. Give the vitamin C time to be absorbed into your skin where it will be of most benefit.
TIP: After applying what's in the capsule to my face, I gently pat any excess onto my throat and neck and then rub my hands together. Don't waste one drop!
