Vitamin C is a POWERHOUSE ingredient which has been used in skincare for years but what is it?
Vitamin C is an important antioxidant which protects the skin from Free Radicals - the pesky & unstable molecules which can damage the cells in our body, especially as we age, which can cause the skin to age, cause fine lines & wrinkles as well as affecting the texture & tone of the skin.
Vitamin C comes in many forms but its L-ascorbic Acid which effectively protects our skin from the cell damage - see for yourself… Two slices of apple, both left in moderate sunlight for 8 hours, one with Obagi Vitamin C Serum 15% and one with nothing. As you can see the slice of apple with nothing has massively deteriorated & showing discolouration as well as an uneven texture, whereas the slice with 5-7 drops of Obagi Vitamin C Serum is still clear, bright, crisp & plump. This experiment mimics the effect this powerful ingredient has on the skin in an environment which matches that of an average office for a typical working day!
Apply your Vitamin C on clean skin every morning before your moisturiser & SPF for maximum protection against ageing & keep your skin clear, bright & wrinkle free!
