All the health conscious folks would certainly have come across the importance and benefits of vitamin C for general health. Vitamin C which is known to improve the immunity system has of late become an essential for skin care. Vitamin C has antioxidant properties, and that’s one reason that it is found in a lot many skin care products today.
As we just mentioned vitamin C is an antioxidant, so it is much needed by our skin to neutralize the effect of free radicals which are the major cause of skin problems, especially aging. Vitamin C finds increased usage in antiaging products, because this is the only antioxidant which has the ability to synthesize collagen. Collagen is what provides the basic structure to the skin, and the rejuvenation of collagen will help to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles.
The problem with vitamin C. is that, at normal room temperatures, this antioxidant turns volatile and evaporates. So whatever skin care product we choose, we need to be particular that the product will deeply penetrate into our skin, so that Vitamin C can be absorbed by the skin and it doesn’t get lost due to its volatility.
Products to look for
If you really want to get the maximum benefit from your vitamins C skin care product, then look for a product that is enriched with Avocado oil, because this oil is loaded with vitamin C and is known to penetrate deep inside your skin tissues.
The last advice
Vitamin C is also naturally produced in the body, but this ability of the body to produce vitamin C goes on decreasing with age. Some of the other reasons for depletion of vitamin C are excessive exposure to the sunrays, smoking and constant exposure to pollution. So apart from using vitamin C enriched skin care products, you need to take care of these three factors as well.
