And your skin. Are you using it?
Anti-oxidants protect skin from future sun damage as well as repairing cells of past damage (those darn free radicals). Let me say that again, Vitamin C helps the skin repair itself!
It helps stimulate the production of collagen and elastin which slows down with age – hence the wrinkles.
Internal consumption is extremely good for skin as well. Buffered Vitamin C has always been recommended as a good choice for better body absorption. Vitamin C is water soluble so you if it’s not absorbed by the body, it leaves. We need to replenish daily because look at all the health benefits..
3 of my favorites are:
Dr. Spiller Vitamin C Line (serum, day & night cream)
Rodan + Fields Reverse Line (vitamin c & retinol combo) and the Sunscreen is the most hydrating I’ve ever used!
Avalon Organics Vitamin C renewal (lip balm)
So whether it’s finding a skincare line with Vitamin C, throwing an orange slice into your tea/water, munching on C based veggies (bell pepper, cauliflower, broccoli, spinach, collard greens, tomatoes) or supplementing your diet with buffered C (especially during cold & flu season) – start rev-ing UP your anti-aging routine today.
Your skin & body will THANK YOU!
Anyone receive a Clarisonic for a recent holiday or birthday gift? This is one of my top Beauty Picks for 2013! I can’t live without mine.
confession: I never go to bed without washing my face. Even if I fall asleep I wake up, wash my face and go back to bed.
Good news: Clarisonic introduces the NEW Cashmere brush head! (whoo hoooo); claims to clean your skin SIX TIMES better than using your hands! (yes, re-read that) and even for sensitive skin, it is gentle enough for daily use.
Here are 4 tips to get your skin “squeaky” clean.
1. Wash in the pm 2x
The first wash takes off makeup & dirt. Second gets residue & lightly cleans pores (I use Clarisonic for second wash)
2. Add a salicylic acid lotion or wipe to your routine
Perfect 2nd wash. Exfoliates & cleans deeper into pores.
3. Use the Clarisonic
This product pushes impurities out while topically smoothing & buffing skin. I see a huge difference in the skin condition of clients that use it regularly.
4. Finish with a cold water “splash or pass”
On skin commercials you always see the beautiful splash of water in slow motion. Yes, that can be messy but cold water after a cleanse actually closes the pores and helps tighten the skin (as well as following with a Vitamin C serum after drying face).
