How does Vitamin C benefit the skin?
Vitamin C is a water soluble antioxidant and is naturally found in the skin to protect it. Exposure to harmful UV rays and toxins in the environment creates free radicals that damage collagen as well as other components of skin. Antioxidants like Vitamin C neutralize free radicals and protect the skin. There have been many scientific research studies that have shown that Vitamin C increases collagen in the skin, improves skin texture, fine wrinkling, pigmentation, roughness, and skin elasticity. However not all Vitamin C formulations are the same – only certain molecules of Vitamin C absorb into the skin, maintain stability in a moisturizer, and are effective for anti-aging. Vitamin C, which combined with Vitamin E is more effective, is one of the key ingredients in the MD Glam NIGHT moisturizer. Extensive testing and research and development went into MD GLAM products for maximal efficacy and results.
