Vitamin C Advanced Technology from Eminence.ie
If your goal is luminous, plumped up skin, Vitamin C should be in your skincare regime. We’ve heard about Vitamin C in skincare for luminosity for many years, but Vitamin C both internally and externally can also prevent premature ageing and skin laxity as well as further loss of tone.
What Are Antioxidants & Free Radicals?
As one of the most commonly referenced health properties, we know antioxidants are beneficial for our skin, but how, exactly? Before we delve into the solution they provide, we need to start with the problem: free radicals. Certain environmental factors (air pollution, intense sun exposure) can cause atoms in our body to split, prompting the now-singular electrons to bounce around to find another electron to partner with.
Molecules strive to have a pair of electrons in their outer shells, so when they lose one electron they become unstable. Free radicals seek to regain this electron by oxidising other molecules such as the cell’s own DNA, enzymes and proteins.
Benefits Of Antioxidants For Your Skin
Higher levels of free radicals have been known to contribute to the weakening of our skin’s elasticity. Oxidation affects the body the same way it would rust a car: It accelerates ageing. In their quest to re-couple, free radicals wreak havoc on healthy cells, damaging our bodies in the process.
Thankfully, antioxidants exist to stop free radicals in their tracks, without, becoming free radicals themselves. But preventing free radical damage isn’t antioxidants’ only value. In their maintenance of our cell health, they also naturally hydrate and reduce inflammation in our skin.
Vitamin C is one of the most effective ingredients in defending your skin against free radical damage! Eminence’s tried-and-true Vitamin C favorites are made with juicy citrus and fresh wholefood ingredients brimming with essential vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants.
