Since childhood, most of us have known the power of Vitamin C for boosting the immune system. Whenever cold symptoms started appearing, your parents would load you up on orange juice or maybe the popular drink Emergen-C, right?! Well, believe it or not, Vitamin C also plays a heroic role in anti-aging, which is why it was so vital to include it in our cutting-edge sunscreen, ZINC IT OVER™.
Vitamin C actually comes in many forms including Ester-C, Magnesium Ascorbyl, and Ascorbyl Palmitate; however, the most sought after form when it comes to skin care is Ascorbic Acid. This is because it absorbs extremely quickly and has the highest potency when applied topically. Ascorbic Acid is basically the antioxidant properties of Vitamin C which helps to prevent and repair skin problems. Below is our list of the many superpowers Vitamin C has for rescuing your skin!
Collagen – Vitamin C is required in the production of collagen. Collagen is an important component in toning and firming the skin, resulting in fewer wrinkles and signs of aging.
Sun Protection – Protects the skin from harmful UV rays and neutralizes free radicals.
Dry Skin – Collagen also provides the structure for blood vessels which carry nutrients and oxygen to the skin. Without these important nutrients, skin becomes dry and lifeless.
Healing – By aiding in skin elasticity and creating scar tissue and ligaments, Vitamin C is able to help heal wounds fast!
Discoloration – Shields DNA from photo-chemical reactions that can result in discolorations and lightens age spots.
Sunburn – Extremely effective in treating sunburns and the damage resulting from long-term exposure to UV rays.
