Did you know that not all Vitamin C is created equal? Today’s ingredient focus will be on Vitamin C, one of the four pillars of dermal remodeling actives along with Hyaluronic Acid, Peptides and Glycogen that can be found in Nelly De Vuyst skin care and a few tips and tricks to get the most out of this key anti-aging active.
Vitamin C is essential for collagen synthesis. Collagen is one of the most important structural proteins for maintaining the flexibility and firmness of the skin. However, with age, collagen production slows down and contributes to skin sagging, thus intensifying the appearance of wrinkles. Vitamin C however, is able to increase the ability of our skin to produce collagen. This helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, prevent their appearance and bring more firmness to the skin.
L ascorbic acid is currently the most popular form of Vitamin C and is available many products on the market today. As we take a closer look at the effectiveness, stability and skin compatibility of L ascorbic acid we find that it oxidizes quickly thus not only diminishing is effectiveness but potentially causing an increase in free radicals that age the skin. Also it is a more acidic form of Vitamin C that can cause tingling or mild irritation on sensitive skin types.
The Nelly De Vuyst Laboratory spent seven years to perfect and harness the full potency of Vitamin C and are proud to offer you the next generation of vectorized skin rejuvenating anti oxidants.
Nelly De Vuyst uses a stabilized form of vitamin C in their VitaLift-C HA Serum which is ideal in your 20s, Serum BioTense and Eye Contour Gel BioTense in your 30s and the Lifting Peptides Serum in your 40s and 50s. Derived from a new generation of Ascorbyl Glucoside and encapsulated in liposomes, it is ideal for all types of skin and is perfectly tolerated by even the most sensitive skin. Once it is in contact with the skin, this form of vitamin C becomes active and is then time-released into the deeper layers of the skin without the oxidizing and sensitizing effects of conventional Vitamin C.
We recommend to incorporate Vitamin C in your 20s and 30s along with SPF 30 Sunscreen every day to prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
