I recently read an article that once again reminded me how important Vitamin C is in improving the skin’s natural defence systems.
Every day, natural and environmental triggers work to change the skin from inside and out, speeding up the ageing process and resulting in hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles and a loss of elasticity.
Our skin can fight back, but it needs help. Antioxidants like Vitamin C help the skin defend itself against stressors by neutralising damaging molecules. Vitamin C can actually enhance the skin's natural defence system, enabling it to defend itself from oxidative stress.
There are a number of Vitamin C products available that can be added into your skincare regime, and it is a matter of finding the most stable, active and easy to use.
There are always new developments entering the market place, so it is important to discuss these with a skincare expert to understand when and how to use them for the best results.
