Most times when you hear Vitamin C the first thing that pops into your mind are oranges or citrus fruits. We can’t seem to get enough of this product at Images Med Spa in Mokena for the purity of the ingredient also known as Ascorbic Acid or L-Ascorbic Acid. When you were younger and fighting the flu did you ever drink orange juice? It’s because we automatically knew that vitamin c is the cure for any illness. You can find it in citrus fruits, veggies such as spinach and also fermented foods. Vitamin C is not just good for fighting off the flu but we also need to absorb it to restore and repair tissues. In order to get out of bed and do our daily activities we need it to function. Maybe that sounds dramatic… but vitamin c is a key vitamin that we need to thrive. Unfortunately vitamin c is water soluble and that means the body cannot produce or store it. That’s why it’s especially important that we drink or eat foods that contain vitamin c because the body can absorb it. Another benefit is that it helps absorption of other nutrients such as iron. Everything is connected with our bodies and mind so if one thing is off everything can become affected. Now that you get how important it is to get this vitamin into your body it’s also just as important for your skin. If you experience dull skin this could be the answer to elevating your whole skincare routine. Everyone who uses our medical grade vitamin c products said they noticed instant radiance to their skin. So if you’re serious about your glowy skin goals you will 100% notice a more bright, light and tighter complexion.
Vitamin C, used as a topical for the skin, is the best protection against free radicals and air pollution. On top of this, Vitamin C is an acidic product that makes the skin believe it needs healing which actually will increase your collagen and elastin production. Collagen and Elastin combined tie the skin together and keep it fresh and youthful looking. Collagen acts as a glue that binds the cells together and then elastin keeps the skin firm and bouncy. We often describe Vitamin C as the rejuvenator to your skincare routine. You’ll want to be careful when picking one out though. Vitamin C comes in two different forms such as pure form and derivative form. The pure form is often described as stronger but this might not be the suitable version for everyone’s skin. This is why it’s important to have one of our skin experts do a deep analysis of your skin. This one comes from the Ascorbic Acid or L-Ascorbic Acid. This is actually what makes the product stronger. Another great reason this one is preferred is because it is the only form the body will recognize and utilize right away! Although one thing we find with Vitamin C is that it is very sensitive unlike retinol or niacinamide. What this means is depending on the weather, lighting, air and overall environment the product can become less efficient. The product adapts to the environment you first started using it in. If you use it in summer and then move into fall it might notice a change with it. If that is the case for you then your esthetician might move things around in your skincare routine. Most times it’s as easy as a simple fix. When clients come to us with their skin routine our estheticians are able to fix what is causing your concerns by their knowledge of ingredients and products. Derivative options might also be a better option for some people because they are less sensitive and make work better with other products. If you have super sensitive skin it may be recommended that you use this option so there is not inflammation. This form of vitamin c may come in an oil soluble or water soluble. The most used and common form of the derivative version of vitamin c would be tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate.
Ok Ladies, it’s time we talk about medical grade products. Instead of buying the first product you see at your nearest drugstore it won’t be that easy if you want results.
