Not only does vitamin C help boost the production of skin cells (including collagen), but it acts as an antioxidant. The anti-aging benefits of Serious Skincare Serious C go beyond this: Vitamin C also helps to regenerate vitamin E, which acts to improve the texture of skin and to reduce lines and wrinkles.
Directly, or through the way it is metabolized, vitamin C helps damaged skin regenerate, boosts skin cell and collagen production, acts as an antioxidant and can even help protect skin against damage from the sun’s ultraviolet radiation. The forms of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) that Serious Skincare Serious C products provide the skin allow the skin tissues to readily absorb and use this vital vitamin.
In addition to the five highly bioavailable vitamin C esters in Serious Skincare C Cream with SPF 30, this daytime moisturizing cream also includes a suite of vitamin C-rich botanical extracts, both from citric sources and acerola (Malphighia glabra). These natural forms of vitamin C are more easily absorbed and used than artificial sources taken in pill form. To provide additional protection against ultraviolet rays, the cream also includes five sunscreen compounds.
In addition to removing makeup and clearing the skin, Serious Skincare C Clean Facial Cleanser also provides a suite of moisturizers, skin toners and sources of vitamin C. Bioavailability – how easily the tissues can absorb and utilize active ingredients – is an important consideration for vitamin C. This formula uses a delivery system of microspheres called colloidosomes to deliver Rovisome C®, a liposome technology that boosts collagen synthesis and protects the skin against free oxygen radicals.
On its own, exfoliation promotes the production and presentation of new skin cells. Serious Skincare C Power provides additional benefits: Not only does it gently exfoliate the skin with papain, a natural proteolytic enzyme, but it provides vitamin C esters using an advanced delivery technology that encourages new skin cell growth. By promoting a greater skin cell turnover, the complexion is smooth, brightened and more receptive to emollients.
