Beauty Tips with Clara Toomey: Vitamin C
- That beautiful sunshine.
- The elements.
- The environment.
These are the factors that contribute to extrinsic aging; the critical component in determining who looks older or younger than their biological age.
Luckily, 85% of the visible signs of aging can be directly attributed to this type. Whereas intrinsic aging is inevitable and predetermined, our extrinsic age is where we have control.
- Don’t smoke.
- Use sunscreen.
- Avoid excessive sun exposure.
These things are obvious.
What many people don’t know is that vitamin C (aka L-ascorbic acid) is one of the most highly researched anti-aging ingredients in skincare.
How has it earned it’s nickname as an anti-aging superstar?
Here are just a couple reasons:
Vitamin C helps to enhance production of new collagen AND prevent breakdown of our current collagen.
What we see: smoother, softer, and a revitalized skin surface.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant protecting our skin cells from UV damage.
What we see: a more youthful, even skin tone with less age spots and a brighter complexion.
