Here at the Age Management Institute we offer many different ways you can help rejuvenate your skin. One important part of our skin care program is the use of vitamins C and E. To encourage the use of these vitamins, we’ve put together an explanation of how these vitamins benefit your skin.
Vitamin C is a skin care champion. It is essential in the production of collagen, it stimulates the reproduction of skin cells and it helps fight free-radical damage. Collagen is important because it aids in the growth of cells and it keeps your skin firm.
The way vitamin C is able to combat free-radical damage because it is also an antioxidant. Antioxidants neutralize the cell depleting effect of free radicals, which are molecules that damage collagen and cause dryness, fine lines and wrinkles.
Vitamin E is a skin care heavy weight. It is one of the most powerful antioxidants, but your body can’t produce it. That means that in order to help your skin maintain is youthfulness, you’ll need to be sure your body gets a good amount of vitamin E.
You can get these vitamins in your diet, but if you want to give your skin an extra boost to fight signs of aging, you’ll want to find skin care products that contain vitamin C and E. Such products are offered at the Age Management Institute.
