VITAMIN A-C-E SERUM
“I recommend people buy one excellent product that will target both protection and repair. Again if you had to choose one product, go for a good-quality vitamin A,C,E serum and apply it daily. On top of the serum use a natural moisturiser with plant extracts”
Words of wisdom in an Australian Beauty Magazine written by a beauty therapist who owns a skin care clinic. Added to this advice the therapist recommended the use of products or serums containing Hyaluronic Acid.
I could not give better advice. The scientific backing is all there. Vitamin C is an amazing anti oxidant which protects the skin from free radicals and UV damage and helps undo some of that damage. Vitamin C strengthens the skin, gives a more even tone and reduces pigmentation.
The type of Vitamin C used is very important. VCIP or ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate is an oil form of Vitamin C which is 7 – 10 times more potent than water soluble vitamin C. VCIP also enters the skin cells very easily and stays in the cells. It doesn’t wash off.
VCIP is also very stable. OK everyone is saying that now. The big problem with water soluble vitamin C is that it oxidizes very quickly. You can tell when the color is a bit orange, it stings or it smells.
A well formulated Vitamin A-C-E serum will have no smell or color. It will also be clear – and be a light oil formulation. It will disappear into the skin quickly. You will see results within a week.
When combined with Vitamins A and E the outcome multiplies many times. Vitamin A is a hero in its own right. Retinyl Palmitate is a gentle form of Vitamin A safe for over the counter use. It still packs a powerful punch. Blemishes heal faster, skin tissue thickens. It is best used at night because as Retinyl Palmitate it takes a little longer to work in the skin. Overnight while the skin is resting and repairing is ideal.
Vitamin E is another anti oxidant which increases the results of vitamins A and C many times. The big secret is to use a combination of the 3 vitamins in the correct proportions.
Another little secret of VCIP is that is stops our own sebum from going rancid therby reducing acne or pimple outbreaks. Pimples are caused when sebum and dead skin cells block pores. Enter bacteria and a pimpe forms. VCIP on the skin will improve skin health and prevent the oxidizing problem.
A-C-E Vitamin Serum is essential in mature or dry skin types but can be safely used by all skin types.
