Did you know that vitamin C is the most abundant antioxidant in the human skin? It’s is a naturally occurring vitamin and is also an antioxidant. Humans, however, are unable to synthesise vitamin C from glucose as we lack the enzyme required. We must, therefore, acquire it from natural sources such as citrus fruits and leafy green vegetables. Digesting vitamin C orally, however, is inadequate as an anti ageing solution as only a finite amount of the vitamin is absorbed via the small intestine. Topical application of absorbed acid, however, will cross the epidermis into the lower dermis because of its low molecular weight.
Vitamin C is essential for collagen production and in particular is required for the cross linking of collagen fibres into their strong rope like triple helix structure.
This helps dramatically improve the appearance fine lines and wrinkles.
Although vitamin C on its own provides antioxidant and photoprotection , it works best in conjunction with vitamin E, which increases the vitamin C’s strength four-fold.
Alumier MD have recently launched a potent antioxidant serum, EVERACTIVE C&E, to visibly reduce the signs of ageing.
