Vitamin C is renowned for its antioxidant properties. In our bodies, antioxidants neutralize free radicals which are unstable, electrically charged molecules that can damage our cells.
When you get your vitamin C brightening facial, it can lead to these results:
- Get softer, radiant and clearer skin
- Smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Repair damaged skin
- Encourage skin regeneration
- Refines pores
- Reduces pigmentation
- Boosts collagen production
- Helps protect the skin against sun damage by thickening the dermis layer
- Evens out the skin tone
The brightening effect that occurs after your vitamin C facial is because of the vitamin’s role in preventing tyrosinase, a key enzyme that produces the pigment on our skin. When tyrosinase is inhibited, our vitamin C brightening facial lightens any discoloration from sun spots, age spots or acne.
To get the best results from your vitamin C facial, it is best to get it every six to eight weeks. You will leave refreshed and illuminated every time.
Even though getting a vitamin C facial is becoming popular among the most recent generation, it has been used by ancient civilizations for its ant-aging and skin healing benefits. Long before a woman could get what we now call a vitamin C brightening facial, women in diverse civilizations around the world obtained vitamin C from a variety of sources.
In Tibet during the Tang Dynasty, women used the oil, which was high in vitamin C, from golden orange berries and to rub on their hands and face to fight signs of pre-mature aging. Native Americans made vitamin C-rich paste out of rose petals to moisten and help their skin.
Applying vitamin C to the skin through a vitamin C brightening facial is 20 times more effective that oral ingestion. Because the vitamin is water-soluble, a big part of the vitamin C will not remain in our bodies.
Humans lack the ability to produce vitamin C naturally. Of course it’s important to have
vitamin C in our bodies, but ingesting it is not nearly as effective in improving our skin.
You can see the immediate results of topical application through a vitamin C facial because the vitamin is absorbed into the skin and can’t be washed out. A significant amount of the vitamin can remain in the skin for up to three days. That’s why getting a regular vitamin C brightening facial can give you the best results to maintain healthy and younger-looking skin.
Getting a vitamin C facial is one of the most effective ways to boost collagen. While collagen is just one of thousands of proteins in our bodies, it makes up a third of all protein in the body and about 75% of the skin.
Aging, smoking, free radicals and sun damage are a few of the main factors that causes us to lose collagen, which leads to wrinkles and sagging skin. Most of the skin benefits from a vitamin C facial are the result of healthy collagen because it works hand-in-hand with elastin to provides the skin’s flexibility and vibrancy.
