When you feel a bad cold coming on, what’s one of the first things people tell you to do? Other than to stock up on tissues and call in sick, you will probably be urged to take large doses of vitamin C. Although you may already know of this water soluble vitamin and powerful antioxidant’s immune system-boosting properties, they are just a tip of the iceberg. In addition to aiding in repairing tissues, vitamin C has also been found to lower cholesterol, combat free radicals and even go on the front lines against cancer. It also is used to prevent and treat scurvy, helps to lower hypertension, combats the effects of strokes, controls the symptoms of asthma in some patients and can aid in the healing of wounds. Although it is not produced in the human body, it can be absorbed via food and vitamin supplements. It should come as no surprise, then, to learn that vitamin C, when contained in the right formula, can also do amazing things for wrinkled, lined and sun-damaged skin. Isn't it time you learned more about the vitamin that carries with it so many age-defying benefits?
Vitamin C And Your Face
There are two important ways in which vitamin C can help your skin. First, it is an essential ingredient in the synthesis of collagen, one of your skin’s vital proteins that fosters a supple, youthful look. Second, its antioxidant properties wage war against dangerous free radicals and work to reverse the damage they do to your skin in the form of lines and wrinkles. These noticeable benefits cannot, however, be achieved simply by taking large amounts of vitamin C by mouth. That is because this method does not allow for a high enough concentration in your skin to bring about any changes. The only way to experience the skin-care advantages of vitamin C is to apply it directly to the FACE.
Some Bumps In The Road
Sadly, accomplishing this task is not as simple as it sounds. That’s because a complication that occurs with vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is its tendency to oxidize once it is exposed to air. As this oxidation process advances, vitamin C is eventually degraded into entirely different, more acidic byproducts that can irritate your face and even stain your clothing.
An Interim Solution
In an attempt to remove these roadblocks, several companies have chosen to use vitamin C derivatives such as magnesium ascorbyl phosphate and ascorbyl palmitate in their facial products. Unfortunately, these "kissing cousins" have not undergone the strict scientific scrutiny that pure vitamin C has. In spite of their greater stability and resistance to oxidation, it is not known if they will cause any negative effects on humans over time.
Furthermore, purists looked upon these derivatives with some dismay. Wasn’t there a way to boost collagen, fight free radicals and reduce skin damage using unadulterated vitamin C, also known as L-Ascorbic Acid? After all, L-Ascorbic Acid has been the subject of a great deal more research than have any of the derivatives. In addition, its high potency makes it a much more powerful antioxidant. Surely there must be solutions that would allow for the use of L-Ascorbic Acid by making it stable and soothing to the skin.
The Founding Father Of Topical Antioxidants
Dr. Sheldon Pinnell, a Duke University scientist, asked this same question. As a direct result of his investigative research, he patented a stable form of pure L-Ascorbic Acid that could be easily absorbed into the face and provided eight times the skin's natural antioxidant protection. As the founding father of topical antioxidants, he paved the way for today's premier L-Ascorbic solution.
The Perfect Answer For Your Face
After exhaustive research that built upon Dr. Pinnell's work, skin-care developers have at last arrived at the parameters for a perfect L-Ascorbic Acid serum that combines the advantages of pure Vitamin C with all of the positive characteristics that were once only available with derivatives. It is highly effective because it is formulated with pure l-ascorbic acid with an acidic pH ranging between 2.0 and 3.5. Furthermore, it must have an L-Ascorbic Acid concentration between 10 and 20 percent. Lurevo’s Vitamin C+ Defense Serum represents the gold standard when it comes to pure vitamin C products, featuring 20 percent L-Ascorbic Acid with a pH of 3.4. Lurevo will bring the full power of pure vitamin C to your skin in a serum that is specially formulated to pamper your face, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, minimize age spots and balance out uneven skin tone. Best of all, it contains stabilizing ingredients that slow the oxidation process significantly, thus allowing you to reap all of the benefits of pure vitamin C without any negative consequences.
The Bottom Line
At one time, it was impossible for consumers to take full advantage of the antioxidant, damage-reducing properties that pure Vitamin C promised. But now, thanks to the tireless dedication of skin-care specialists and scientists, Lurevo offers a stable, highly effective, L-Ascorbic-acid rich serum that will turn back the clock and minimize the ravages of sun, time and the environment.
