The Importance of Vitamin C
There are so many antioxidants to choose from when looking for that perfect anti aging treatment. Really, who can keep up? The truth is vitamin C is the most important antioxidant for the skin. This mega vitamin is the only antioxidant proven to stimulate collagen synthesis. It reduces inflammation, suppresses pigmentation, retains moisture, enhances uv protection and replenishes vitamin E. It helps our damaged skin recover and can protect it from future damage.
Nutritional antioxidants, like the vitamin C in oranges or asparagus for example, naturally protect our skin from photo aging but we don’t always get the daily recommended amount.
Topical vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid) can produce higher concentrations of vitamin C in the skin and once absorbed, they aren’t washed or rubbed off. It is important to stress here that only topical vitamin C that is stable, active and able to be absorbed, and remain stable throughout the life of the product once it is opened, is effective. It must be able to penetrate to be effective at the cellular level. Obagi professional-c serums and C Rx clarifying serum provide this deep penetration to the dermal level. Obagi C Rx delivers more l-ascorbic acid into the skin and remains in the skin longer than other leading vitamin C products.
Not all vitamin C products are created equal. The Obagi C Rx system is an entire regimen formulated with prescription strength 4% hydraquinone plus 10% l-ascorbic acid. Using this system twice a day will improve the appearance of hyper-pigmentation by regulating the production of melanocytes. Through gentle exfoliation it will restore balance, radiance and clarity. Minimize future skin cell damage by neutralizing free radicals and protecting the skin. This great skin care system is perfect for any age and any skin type and those looking to minimize fine lines and unevenness of skin tone, have mild hyper-pigmentation and age spots, or are not ready for, or intolerant to retinoids.
