Vitamin C isn’t just found in a glass of orange juice these days it’s become an essential ingredient in many of the leading skincare products mainly for its powerful antioxidant skin protection.
Vitamin C also known as L-ascorbic acid is a nutrient that acts as a vitamin to our bodies normally used to repair the skin and heal wounds. In the early 1950’s Vitamin C was of utmost importance for those travelling by ship to prevent contracting scurvy, which was a direct result of not receiving vitamin C. Vitamin C is important in maintaining one’s overall health and is a critical element in today’s skincare. Vitamin C has been proven to be a highly effective skin care antioxidant and its ability to encourage collagen production, maintaining an even skin tone and restoration of the skin’s elasticity.
Vitamin C can be found in fresh fruits, berries and green vegetables. Many of the leading cosmeceutical companies extract vitamin c directly from fresh fruits and berries in the form of L-ascorbic acid and add this ingredient to their leading skin care products.
It has been clinically proven that Vitamin C in skincare products have the power to increase collagen production resulting in the diminishing of fine lines and wrinkles making skin stronger and appear youthful and healthy. Vitamin C has also been proven to even out skin discolorations and reduce the appearance of dark spots on the skin caused by sun damage and lack of essential nutrients.
The leader in Vitamin C skincare is Cellex-C, the entire line of skin care products is produced using various strengths of L-ascorbic acid and in combinations with other essential ingredients for professional strength skincare.
Other skincare companies such as PCA Skin pHaze, Quintessence Skin Science, June Jacobs and Janson Beckett, all produce highly concentrated vitamin c skin serums to treat and protect the skin.
Overall, Vitamin C is an important and powerful ingredient in protecting and maintaining skins youthfulness and overall health.

The most common skincare method that is known to many is just by application of creams, facial wash, and cleansers to the facial skin to get clear and radiant skin. What most of us don’t know is that what is going on inside us reflects on our skins. We must also take care of our inner body to make it healthy and manifest thru our skin. So, aside from taking care of the outside, taking in pills with vitamins and minerals intended for the skin is another perfect way to have the glowing skin we always wanted.
There are already companies producing various tablets intended to aid in moisturizing the skin like Vitamedica which has several pills for a definite reason like anti aging. They also have developed VitaMedica Arnica Montana that is created to ease the skin after surgery.
A top of the line brand which is known in making skin care tablets, Murad, developed the Murad Firm and Tone Dietary Supplement that assists in toning the skin and trimming down flab, which is an obsession for most women and some men. In any case, we must put in mind that we should always pay attention to what we do to ourselves.
Aside from skin care tablet, another way to keep our inner body healthy for that regenerated skin is drink powder mixes. This is a formulation from Borba which has great ingredients perfect for the skin. Apart from the nutrients included, they have incorporated antioxidants to the powder mixes to promote firmer skin, eliminating symptoms of premature aging.

Maintaining healthy skin is not as difficult as people make it out to be, all you have to do is follow four easy steps to get healthy and flawless skin. Maintaining healthy skin has also been made easy because of array of skin care products that are available in the market nowadays, although choosing the right product may seem hard but once you find the perfect product for yourself you should stick to it and follow the four basic skin regiment techniques mentioned below:
Cleansing helps in removing all excess dirt, oil, sebum, makeup and other impurities from the surface of the skin. Cleansers are available in the market in two basic shapes; liquids and bars. A bar cleanser is very effective in removing impurities from the skin but Bar cleansers have a draw back which is that they make skin unusually dry and also have a somewhat irritating effect on skin. Liquid cleansers come in the shape of gels, foams and creams and they don’t cause excessive dryness on skin like bar cleansers do. While cleansing you should always remember never to over cleanse your skin or it becomes too dry and tight which is not at all healthy.
Toning is the next step in your healthy skin regime; toners are available in the shape of soaps, washes, lotions, astringents and refiners. Toning effectively removes all dirt and impurities from the skin. A good toner is able to clear skin, reduce skin inflammation, hydrate and moisturize skin. Few good quality toners offer anti irritant and anti oxidant protection to skin. A toner is applied on the skin with the help of a cotton pad, which is swept over the entire face and neck. While choosing a toner always remember never to buy a toner which has the following ingredients in it; SD Alcohol, ethanol and isopropyl alcohol.
Moisturizing gives skin a supple and soft appearance it also protects skin against harmful radicals and other detrimental environmental factors. Moisturizing skin also helps regulate cell function and promote a more youthful appearance. While choosing a moisturizer you should practice extreme caution and should only use the moisturizer which suits your specific skin type so that there is no possibility of irritation happening on skin.
APPLYING SPF PROTECTION:
This is the final step in your healthy skin regimen, sun gives us energy and light but it also causes damage to our skin. So it is very essential to apply a good SPF protection on your skin so that you can save your selves from harmful sun damage such as skin cancer, dark spots and other skin pigmentations. If you have to spend most of your time outside in the sun it is advisable that you should use products with SPF protection so that you can save your skin.

When you look in the mirror do your eyes look tired and puffy? Do you have what is commonly known as “bags” under your eyes?
One of the most common reasons for puffiness around the eyes is due to lack of sleep or being tired, this is why we normally find that our eyes are more swollen and puffy in the morning than later on in the day. Alcohol, tobacco and seasonal allergies can also cause puffiness and swealing around the eye area. Aging is also a contributing factor to the change in the skin around our eyes, as we age our eyes tend to show the first signs of aging by causing long term puffiness and reduced firmness in the skin around the eye area. When skin loses it’s firmness it begins to sag causing the droopy looking skin under the eye area which fills with fluid causing puffiness.
There are many home remedies for decreasing eye puffiness such as chilled cucumber slices and cooled tea bags but these are short term solutions and only help with momentary puffiness. If you find that your eyes seem puffy all the time or are starting to look tired and droopy then it is time that you look for a more long term solution that focuses on reconstructing the skin around the eye area and improve the skin’s elasticity.
ELEMIS a professional skin care line that uses rich botanicals and essential oils has developed many advanced skin care products designed to moisturize and treat the delicate skin area around the eye.
For daily use the Elemis Eye-Awake Recovery Gel is a great way to start the day and provide instant relief from eye strain and tired eyes reducing puffiness while overtime making the eye area look firmer and tighter. The Elemis Absolute Eye Serum and Pro Collagen Eye Renewal are specialty treatment products developed for long term daily use to combat the signs of aging and within 28 days have been proven to decrease fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness and even dark circles.
There are several other doctor recommended skin care products that have been developed based on scientific evidence to improve the tone and overall appearance of the skin, especially around the eyes such as Skin Within Eye Bright, Sothys Active Contour Distressing Mask, Skin Medica Eye Serum and NeoCutis Bio-Restorative Eye Cream. All of these and more doctor recommended products can be found online http://www.drskinspa.com.
