It’s been centuries since British sailors discovered the key to avoiding scurvy by using vitamin C.  Growing up you were probably told that if you had enough vitamin C it would help fight off a cold. The word is out that it may not only have those features and a vital role in maintaining the health of your skin. Those sailors and others who couldn’t get fresh fruits and vegetables suffered from bleeding under the skin, ulcers and weak joints. That is because vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is key to the production of collagen, a protein that aids in the growth of cells and blood vessels which gives skin its firmness and strength! The best way to add vitamin C to your skin is to add vitamin C products to your facial regimen.

Vitamin C can benefit skin in two important ways. First, vitamin C is essential for the synthesis of collagen, a key structural protein of the skin. Adding vitamin C to a culture of skin cells (fibroblasts) dramatically increases the synthesis of collagen. Second, vitamin C is an antioxidant and can help reduce skin damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles.  When vitamin C is properly delivered into skin cells, there is a good chance to reduce wrinkles and improve skin texture!   Research shows that vitamin C may also reduce sunburn caused by exposure to ultraviolet burning radiation and prevent the consequences of long-term sun exposure, which can lead to skin cancer. To improve your skin care, it’s best to eat more foods that contain Vitamin C. There are a lot of skin creams out on the market and working with a good esthetician can help you decide what is right for you. Another great way to gain the most from Vitamin C is through a healthy lifestyle . A lot of what you eat, can have a role on skin care. Anti-aging is best done with taking care of your skin, diet and overall better health! :)  Ask a New Serenity Spa Esthetician for a Vitamin C facial today!  It’s relaxing, refreshing and rejuvenating!
