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.
