In fact, one of the most powerful functions of vitamin C is its role in the production of collagen, a protein that gives your skin its elasticity. As you age, collagen breaks down and wrinkles begin to form. The reason why is because this essential skin protein serves as the "scaffolding" of your skin, supporting the inner layers to keep skin supple. Stabilizing your skin's levels of Vitamin C can help to counteract wrinkle formation by increasing collagen production.
In addition to aiding in collagen production, Vitamin C plays a crucial role in anti oxidant skin care. From the day you are born, your skin is assaulted by environmental pollutants. This, and the aging process, causes free radical formation in your skin. Free radicals are highly reactive compounds that try to destroy your healthy skin cells by trying to take an electron from them. Free radical damage can come from a number of sources: exposure to the sun's UV rays, environmental pollutants such as smoke and smog, and city pollution. A poor diet without adequate access to antioxidants can also exacerbate the formation of free radicals in the skin. When free radicals become abundant in your skin, they regularly damage your healthy cells, including skin cells, in the pursuit of an electron. When that happens, your once healthy skin cells can no longer function optimally to continue looking the way they did when you were young.
The way Vitamin C can helps is that it neutralizes free radicals by donating their electron to the unstable free radicals. This preserves the integrity of your healthy skin molecules. The Vitamin C donates its electron, and causes the free radical to stop its damage to your healthy skin cells.
Taking vitamin C through a supplement or food is beneficial to your health, but to specifically target signs of aging on your face, topical vitamin C is best. In fact, applying Vitamin C Serum to the skin can be 20 times more effective than taking it orally.
Sano Naturals Vitamin C Serum contains the highest concentration at 20% of the most bio-available form of Vitamin C known as sodium ascorbyl phosphate for the best anti aging and antioxidant skincare.
The other ingredients in Sano Naturals Vitamin C Serum, like Hyaluronic Acid and Organic Aloe, allow for better and more efficient penetration of the Vitamin C molecule to the deeper layers of the skin where it can do the most good.
