Take your daily dose of vitamins to the next level with your skincare. The powerful combination of vitamins C and A boost your around-the-clock protection from environmental damage, signs of aging and even breakouts. Regular use of morning antioxidant vitamin C and nighttime miracle-worker vitamin A will result in healthy, even and glowing skin.
The body doesn’t produce vitamin C, yet everyone benefits greatly from this powerful antioxidant. Like a glass of orange juice for your immune system, vitamin C applied topically can help enhance the skin’s level of protection against the sun’s damaging UV rays. Recommended for morning use because of its ability to protect skin cells from UV radiation, this ingredient packs an extra powerful punch when paired with a broad spectrum sunscreen. L-ascorbic acid is the only available vitamin C for the skin and is crucial in anti-aging by stimulating collagen production that, along with elastin, acts as the structure for youthful skin. Boosting collagen results in tighter, stronger skin with fewer signs of wrinkling. Vitamin C formulations that combine high percentages of L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C) with tocopherol (vitamin E) ensures that the skin is receiving the most potent antioxidant action as these two vitamins recycle each other as they fight free radicals deliver more benefits than either of them alone.
Think of your nighttime dose of vitamin A as your skin’s midnight recovery. These essential hours are when your skin does most of its repairing. That, combined with retinol’s tendency to increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun, makes the nighttime hours the perfect opportunity to incorporate this powerful ingredient. Vitamin A works wonders for aging skin by increasing its natural cell turnover rate, which starts to slow as we age. This increase results in a smoother, softer and more even complexion, revealing fresh and healthy skin, simultaneously reducing signs of aging and breakouts. Retinol is most beneficial when used at least three nights per week, allowing those who experience some irritation to have a more comfortable experience by splitting applications up throughout the week.
When regularly used in the same regimen, vitamins C and A have unmatched vitamin power for 24-hour antioxidant protection. Start the day with protection from UV damage and collagen building before wrapping up the day with the ultimate overnight recovery. Together, they complement each other perfectly for the ultimate healthy glow.
