Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals. Due to its antioxidant properties, Vitamin C helps in the process of natural regeneration of your skin which helps your body repair damaged skin cells. So, in the same way that consuming antioxidant-rich foods helps your body fight free radicals, topical antioxidants do the same for your skin, helping to combat UV damage and exposure to air pollution on a daily basis.
Surprisingly, the benefits of Vitamin C for the skin are not limited to its antioxidant status. The skin is activated to accelerate the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are natural protein fibers that help keep skin firm and youthful. So, by helping to promote collagen production, Vitamin C can help prevent premature skin aging. It also has a property that inhibits the production of melanin on your skin, which is what causes skin discolorations such as dark spots and hyperpigmentation. With continued topical use, vitamin C can prevent the formation of dark spots.
Hyaluronic acid is an integral part of skin cells and is part of the connective tissue of the skin. One of its key functions is moisture retention, and it has the ability to bind between 1,000 and 10,000 times its own weight in water. As we age, the skin's natural ability to produce hyaluronic acid diminishes, which causes wrinkles to appear, which deepen over time. Exhausted skin is dry skin whose surface loses its role as a protective barrier, causing skin damage and infections. By supplying the outer layers of the skin with a moisture-rich environment, hyaluronic acid actually strengthens the protective barrier.
Often, Vitamin C serums and hyaluronic acids are applied separately, in two steps through two different products, but Eucerin brings something new this fall - Eucerin Hyaluron - Filler Vitamin C Booster. It is an intense anti-age serum with 10% pure vitamin C and hyaluronic acid with two molecule sizes, one of which penetrates deep into the skin where it stimulates the production of acid in the skin and the other stays on the surface and helps moisturize the outer layers of the skin. It's good to know that you can count on a single product that will allow for easy and easy application with all the benefits of both ingredients.
The peculiarity of this product lies in the fact that vitamin C is freshly activated. Pure Vitamin C breaks down naturally when exposed to oxygen, so it is most effective when fresh. Eucerin delivers a really interesting package that releases vitamin C powder, at the push of a button. The product is used to shake, after which the powder is mixed with the emulsion. The small package allows the product to be used within 21 days, as many days as needed for this blend to stay fresh and maximize skin results.
The product has a gentle, refreshing scent that is not too strong and overwhelming. It is non-comedogenic which means that it is free from clogged pores, it can be applied as a makeup base, but I advise you to apply a moisturizer of your choice on this serum. To complete your facial care routine and give another dose of protection and care, apply Eucerin Hyaluron - Filler Day Cream with SPF 30. A great, lightweight day cream that will protect your skin and keep it moist and nourished throughout the day.
