We all know you need to take your vitamins to be healthy, but what’s all this talk about vitamins in our skin care products? Vitamin C is one of the most widely used skin care ingredients. The variety of skin rejuvenation and anti-wrinkle products with vitamin C is huge– and many of them are sold by your favorite skin care lines in Planet Beauty stores! So should you use a moisturizer, serum, eye cream, or cleanser with Vitamin C? Which ones are the best? Read on and discover all the lines Planet Beauty has to offer that pack a major vitamin punch!
First, how does adding a vitamin C product even benefit your skin? Vitamin C can benefit skin in two important ways. Firstly, vitamin C is essential for the synthesis of collagen, a key structural protein of the skin. Adding vitamin C to a culture of skin cells (fibroblasts) dramatically increases the synthesis of collagen. Secondly, vitamin C is an antioxidant and can help reduce skin damage caused by free radicals. So, when vitamin C is properly delivered into skin cells, there is a good chance to reduce wrinkles and improve skin texture.
Some of your favorite skin care lines are integrating Vitamin C into their products. Skin Care giant Peter Thomas Roth has recently introduced their Camu Camu line, which, for now, includes a serum and a moisturizer. The amazonian Camu Camu berry has 30 times the vitamin C of an orange. This highly concentrated vitamin C has superior absorption properties due to its low molecular weight allowing it to better penetrate the skin, help boost collagen production, brighten, smooth, firm, and improve the appearance of uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles. Powerful antioxidant Camu Camu with vitamins A, D & E also helps revitalize the look of skin while helping to fight free radical attack. Get your own at select Planet Beauty stores, $85.00 for the serum, and $72.00 for the daily moisturizer.
Beloved by all dermatologist Dr. Perricone has an incredible Vitamin C cream that is 15% Vitamin C– the highest dose you can get without a prescription. This one of a kind product delivers brighter, luminous, naturally glowing skin, helps restore sun-damaged skin to a healthy, more youthful complexion. It also tightens, firms and contours the appearance of skin, while smoothing skins texture to a porcelain-like finish. You’ll look years younger after a few weeks (and who wouldn’t want that?). Get yours at your local Planet Beauty store for $115.00.
And, finally, a line that dedicated a whole range to the powerhouse ingredient, Murad’s Environmental Defense range. One can’t live without product is the Advanced Active Radiance Serum, which is a fast acting formula with double the brighteners that boosts radiance and reverses visible signs of environmental damage. Preserve clarity and defend against future damage for lasting youthful radiance. Also formulated with Resilient-C Complex, which delivers highly stable Vitamin C – 50 times the potency of prior generations – to improve skin radiance, help enhance collagen production and protect against free radical damage. You’ll love your skin! Available at all Planet Beauty stores for $89.00.
