You’re always hearing people talk about using antioxidants on your skin to fight off free radicals, but there are so many different kinds of antioxidants to choose from…green tea, algae, niacin, pomegranate, kojic acid, blueberry, kinetin, chamomile, phloretin, and so many more. Who can keep up? But, professional-C serums offer superior topical antioxidant benefits for your skin. Did you know that L-ascorbic acid is the only form of Vitamin C that can be used by the body?
The reason antioxidants like Vitamin C are so important for your daily skin care regimen is because, over time, ultraviolet damage, environmental factors, and natural aging take their toll on your skin. Sun damage alone can cause wrinkles, noticeable changes in skin texture, reduced elasticity, and hyperpigmentation. Free radicals are tiny, unstable oxygen molecules that are naturally present in our environment and can also cause skin damage at the cellular level. The only way to combat these free radicals is by the use of antioxidants.
Vitamin C is the most important skin antioxidant because of the different benefits it can provide. Simultaneously it will stimulate collagen synthesis, reduce inflammation, suppress pigmentation, retain moisture, enhance UV protection, and replenish Vitamin E. No other antioxidant can do so much for the skin. You’ll be able to notice the difference as your skin will become lighter, brighter, and softer. Richmond Aesthetic Surgery caries the number one brand for this topical l-ascorbic acid. Obagi’s professional-C serum is proven to absorb better, penetrate deeper, and offer greater antioxidant benefits than the competition.
