The Benefits of Vitamin C for Your Skin
Introducing Vita-C Glycolic Brightening Serum and Vita-C Eyes Dark Circle Corrector.
The amazing duo from Murad Skincare
Our bodies do not produce vitamin C but for us to enjoy the benefits we need to eat it or apply it to our skin
What is Vitamin C?
It is a powerful antioxidant that can helps to slow down the aging process.
Your skin ages in two different ways – Genetically and environmentally.
What is the difference?
Genetically is the natural ageing process, it happens to us all and should be celebrated.
Environmentally – The way we live our lives and our environment.
This can include the blue light from your devices, the ultra violet lights from the sun and from sunbeds and not forgetting pollution, smoking and a poor diet – These all add stress your skin and can accelerate the ageing process.
Both genetic and environmental ageing reveals itself as hyperpigmentation.
Caused by increased melanin, you may have noticed dark spots that appear after you have been in the sun too long.
This also makes skin look dull, and can increase lines and wrinkles, you may also notice your skin is not as firm as it used to be.
What are the benefits of vitamin C for your skin?
This is where using vitamin C in your skincare routine can help to reverse these signs.
But not all are created equal, in fact traditional vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) dissolves easily in water, is highly acidic, and your skin’s own oils repel it.
It also degrades over time losing its potency and it is not easily absorbed into your skin.
Dr Murad, founder of Murad Skincare identified a new technology called gold-stabilised vitamin C.
It works by attaching vitamin C to gold which makes it more stable.
This stability gives Murad’s gold-stabilised vitamin C 55% higher antioxidant defence than traditional vitamin C.
He combined it with 2 magical ingredients, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate (THD for short), an ingredient known for its excellent skin absorption and glutathione, a potent antioxidant that helps recycle vitamin C in skin to extend its benefits. Combined they create a proprietary technology called Vita-C Complex for Murad’s most powerful skin brightening results yet and showing you the benefits of vitamin C for your skin.
Your skin will be brighter and smoother in under two weeks, you will also see a healthy glow.
It is most definitely one of our most popular combinations.
Murad brightening serum contains glycolic acid that removes dead, dulling surface cells to reveal more radiant skin, and clears the way for vitamin C to penetrate skin more effectively.
Both are formulated without fragrance and artificial colours and are ideal for all skin tones and skin types, from oily to dry.
In less than 2 weeks you will understand and see why your skin needs vitamin C.
