Skin Care Tip: I believe using topical Vitamin C and eating citrus fruits offer amazing skin and health benefit. It’s a fact (and all experts agree) that incorporating antioxidants both into your skin care routine and in the foods you eat will give your body the defense it needs to fight aging.
What are the best antioxidant-containing foods? Berries, sweet potatoes, broccoli, grapes, citrus fruits and spinach.
When it comes to the skin, there is much discussion about which type of topical Vitamin C you should use on your skin to reduce inflammation, free radical activity, brighten discoloration and prevent aging.
The latest research indicates the best form of topical Vitamin C to fight free radicals and reduce the look of skin aging is Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate. And luckily it’s what we use in our famous Vitamin C & E Complex! It converts to Ascorbyl Acid once inside the skin, it stays stable and is time-released so it works for up to 8 hours. Additionally, it acts as a natural skin lightener to fade stubborn brown spots and post-breakout marks and it won’t irritate the skin like others will do. If you’re someone who hasn’t been able to use Vitamin C because it irritates your skin, then you should be using a formula containing Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate.
Unstable Vitamin C (the kind we DON’T recommend you use) will turn brown in the bottle, darken over time and will sting when it’s applied to the skin.
So get your daily dose of Vitamin C and the best results from it, by using the right kind of Vitamin C. Learn why it’s important to take Vitamin C 30 minutes before working out.
