Happy Saturday! We have had some sunny previews of spring lately here in Dallas! While I am all about the sunshine, the Physician Assistant in me also advises basic precautions against sun exposure. But what can you do after the sun damage is done? One of my favorite easy remedies: Topical Vitamin C Serums! ☀️ Benefits of Topical Vitamin C:
1️⃣ Anti-aging. Exposure to sunlight and pollution over time will cause changes in the skin, such as the formation wrinkles, telangiectasias (tiny blood vessels on skin surface) and abnormal skin tone. Vitamin C is a powerful anti-oxidant that “neutralizes” free-radicals that contribute to these undesirable changes.
2️⃣ Collagen development. Collagen is the structural protein found in our body that provides firmness, strength and elasticity to skin. The breakdown of collagen leads to wrinkles and fine lines. Topical Vitamin C assists in synthesizing collagen to decrease the appearance of wrinkles.
3️⃣ Depigmentation. Many things, like sun exposure, birth control pills and pregnancy, can lead to skin pigment changes. Vitamin C works to inhibit melanin formation, thus decreasing hyperpigmentation. Additionally it works as an anti-inflammatory agent and decreases hyperpigmentation that can occur from inflammation after certain dermatological conditions. Hello, bright complexion!
I love Vitamin C but please note that not all Vitamin C serums are created equal, and many available on the market do not contain proper formulation or storage. 🍊
