Skin Health and Vitamin C
As our only barrier to our environment, our skin health is crucial in its ability to protect us. Since the second we are welcomed on this Earth, our skin meets harsh environments, UV rays, air pollution, oils and dirt. While our skin does an excellent job in protecting us, you can always give it an extra boost with some vitamin C love.
Vitamin C is the leader in skin protection and can help strengthen our skin to its highest potential. To get the most out of vitamin C, you can either use it in your skin care products or implement it more in your diet. Either option will give you results!
So, what exactly is vitamin C all about?
Vitamin C wears many hats in its long list of benefits and uses. It stimulates collagen synthesis and is packed with antioxidants that help protect against UV damage. While vitamin C is never a supplement for sunscreen, it is essential in the fight against UV damage. UV rays break down the vitamin C in our skin, so it’s important to replenish vitamin C to keep our skin strong and our collagen synthesis active to prevent against wrinkles.
Speaking of wrinkles, vitamin C is also a great anti-aging agent. Studies show that consuming vitamin C and applying it to the skin gives our skin a smoother appearance. This is from mix of benefits that vitamin C provides. While it increases collagen levels that combat against damage, it also stimulates DNA repair, which can reverse some age-related skin changes.
Is implementing vitamin C in your skin care routine like drinking from the fountain of youth? It sure does seem like it and, honestly, it’s probably as close as you’ll ever get to aging immortality.

All of these vitamin C rich holistic skin care products can replenish your skin from years of damage. For maximum results, apply the Renewal Mask to your already clean face, then follow up with the Revive Facial Toner and finish off with the Glow Facial Serum. Your skin will thank you!
