Fight Aging with Vitamins

Standard

You know Vitamins A, C, and E found in skincare products are good for the skin while sunrays are bad. Yet, why is this? In a nutshell, here is basically how the, previously mentioned, vitamins impact the skin.

Vitamin A:

treats fine wrinkles, age spots, and rough skin caused by sun exposure

-thickens and stimulates the Dermis – where collagen, elastin and blood vessels are – so it reduces wrinkles and increases blood flow to the surface of the skin.

-the deposition of collagen

-slows the breakdown of your collagen and elastin from normal aging

– decreases clustering of melanin granules – so it reduces brown spots or pigmentation

 

 Vitamin C:

-Vitamin C found in the form of L – Ascorbic Acid found in skin care products to keep the skin  refreshed looking and youthful

-helps your skin repair itself

-essential to the production of collagen

collagen:  protein that aids in the growth of cells and blood vessels and gives skin its firmness and strength

 

Vitamin E:

-an antioxidant that protects & repairs your skin

  • antioxidants: agents that neutralize the negative effects of free radicals
  • free radicals: molecules that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles

-prevent cellular damage from occurring
