~ Vitamine "C" facial ~
Vitamin C has properties that make it a valuable ingredient in skin care besides for building up the immune system.
The antioxidant properties of vitamin C have been well-established. Oxygen metabolizes as our bodies use it for energy. When oxygen molecules lose an electron, this creates free radicals; to compensate, these unbalanced molecules steal electrons from healthy cells like skin cells.
free radicals are unstable molecules that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles, as well as generally unhealthy-looking skin. Antioxidants help to stop this process. New research shows that ascorbic acid 2-phosphate, a derivative of vitamin C, not only neutralizes free radicals, but also reverses DNA damage.
