Vitamin C

180px-Ambersweet_orangesWe all want to look our best and if we have beautiful skin, it certainly can make us feel better about ourselves. One of the best ways to maintain the look of our skin is to use ingredients that contribute to the beauty of it. For instance, Vitamin C is a great ingredient to allow you to help your skin look its best.

Vitamin C is a very powerful antioxidant for the skin and can really allow you to have the skin you may have always wanted. It is a common ingredient in many of ZENMED skin care product and you will able to get these products right off the website.

An article in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (January 2000, pages 464–465) discussed the issue of vitamin C and concluded that “Vitamin C is a valuable antioxidant and protectant against photodamage that is created by sunlight in both the UVB and UVA bands…. Although oral supplementation may also be useful, topical preparations are able to deliver a higher dosage to the needed area. Topical Vitamin Cdoes not absorb or block harmful ultraviolet radiation like a sunscreen. Instead, it augments the skin’s ability to neutralize reactive oxygen singlets [free-radical damage] that are created by the ultraviolet radiation, thereby preventing photodamage to the skin. It becomes an integral part of the skin and remains unaffected by bathing, exercise, clothing, or makeup. Used appropriately, topical vitamin C is an important adjunct to the use of sunscreens, an adjunctive treatment to lessen erythema [redness] in skin resurfacing, a helpful adjunct or an alternative to Retin-A in the treatment of fine wrinkles, and a stimulant to wound healing.”

So, as you see Vitamin C can do a lot of good for the skin and really make your skin look much more attractive as well as younger. We all would like to have younger looking skin and the ability to really make it happen can occur when you use products that contain this great ingredient. ZENMED offers a Facial Cleansing Gel as well as many others they offer, has Vitamin C in it. This is an ingredient that you will find in many of ZENMED products, so you will want to make certain you try some of these products if you are interested in having beautiful and younger looking skin.
