Vitamin C: The Anti-Aging Powerhouse

As someone interested in learning more about restorative benefits of Vitamin C, we thought it was important to share key tips that will help you get the most out of incorporating it in your daily skin care routine.

  • Use a Vitamin C with at least 10% ascorbic or l-ascorbic acid. Vitamin C stimulates fibroblast production (a co-factor in collagen formation) for tighter, firmer skin, and is an antioxidant that helps reduce free radical scavengers and oxidative damage. Note that Skin Authority Super-C Serum doubles the recommended dosage to 20%, giving your skin even more power to make collagen and fight free radical damage.

  • Choose a Vitamin C formula paired with a secondary antioxidant. Alone, Vitamin C’s first action is to eliminate free radicals. In most situations, Vitamin C can become exhausted just performing this function, so less vitamin C is available to stimulate collagen production. When a antioxidant is added to the Vitamin C formula, it makes Vitamin C more available to perform the lifting and tightening effects of collagen production. The Skin Authority Super-C Serum combines the the super-antioxidant Pycnogenol® with a 20% ascorbic acid level to deliver a topical Vitamin C formula with unmatched strength to deliver results.

  • Apply your Vitamin C before your sunscreen. When used in combination with a full-spectrum sunscreen, Vitamin C provides enhanced protection (some studies suggest up to 10X) from sun damage and free radicals, two of the leading causes of premature aging skin conditions.
