Did you know that you can make your own vitamin c face cream? If you are prepared to do a lot of work, you can start to mix the ingredients which include aloe vera, distilled water, lanolin, grape seed oil, coconut oil and some vitamin c tablets.
That sounds like a lot of work to me and I would prefer to leave my skincare in the hands of experts and skincare scientists. However, I do want all natural ingredients and I do not want any nasty chemicals in the mix.
Let us have a look now at why this particular vitamin is so popular at the moment and why it is included in so many vitamin c face creams.
The first reason is that this vitamin is a powerful antioxidant and as such can get rid of the free radicals which are so damaging for skin cell renewal. This vitamin when combined with other powerful antioxidants can really make a difference to skin rejuvenation.
Dr. Linus Pauling, winner of two Nobel Prizes for Chemistry and Peace, ingested massive doses of vitamin c and lived to be ninety three so that was a living example although many people would disagree with the massive does that he took! His work on vitamin C as a cancer cure failed to meet standards of normal random controlled trials.
But the effects of vitamins C, E and A on skincare has been shown very clearly over the years. There are studies that show that people who eat these vitamin rich diets have much less wrinkled skin. Another study in an Australian university surveyed hundreds of elderly people in their seventies. Those who has less wrinkled skin had had a much healthier diet with plenty of vitamins such as vitamin C and were eating other antioxidant rich foods as well.
The other group who had eaten a lot of processed foods and red meat and not many fruits or vegetables were found to have a lot more wrinkled, dull and dry skin.
So what else do we need apart from a vitamin c face cream? We are going to need special ingredients which can really affect our growth of collagen, hyaluronic acid and also which are capable of nourishing our skin. These are not to be found in any over the counter product unfortunately and we have to search quite a bit to find them.
Maybe you have not heard of strange sounding ingredients but these are even more powerful than anything you will find in an average vitamin c face cream. They go further and deeper. The names of these ingredients are phytessence wakame, nano lipobelle HEQ10 and also cynergy TK.
If you click through to my website you will discover why these are at the cutting edge of skincare to-day. This particular product which uses them is streets ahead of the rest. Time to click through and find out why.
