As we all age, it becomes more and more important to protect our skin from free radicals – the evil little sources of skin damage that come from sun exposure, drinking, smoking, age and all kinds of other environmental factors. That’s why you’ve heard so much about antioxidants – they help fight the oxidizing effect of free radicals, which – not to get too scientific – is when they steal from your existing healthy cells to try to make themselves “complete”, causing a breakdown of your skin cells.
Vitamin C is one of the most powerful antioxidants out there, and that’s why I recommend you use it daily in your skincare regimen. (Note: many products have Vitamin C present as ascorbic acid, so if you’re using ascorbic acid, you’re getting the benefits of Vitamin C. That’s only one of the things I love about Nature’s Best Vitamin C Serum.
This serum not only has Vitamin C, but also Vitamin E and hyaluronic acid to help reverse wrinkles, fine lines and the signs of skin aging. I’m very big on hyaluronic acid as well – it doesn’t get as much press as its buddy collagen, but it acts virtually the same way in skin science. Just like collagen, hyaluronic acid holds together the bonds of skin, making it supple, firm and smooth. It also makes joints move more easily, acting as a kind of internal lubricant for the body. And, just like collagen, it breaks down as we age. I’m big on taking hyaluronic acid both orally and topically.
With all three of these skincare components, this serum is a powerhouse for maintaining your youth. Just apply all over the face and massage upward – and be delicate around that eye area! If you tug there too much, you can damage your own skin.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
