Did you know that L-Ascorbic Acid is the only form of Vitamin C that can be utilized directly by the skin?  When applied topically, directly onto the skin, it can offer concentrations 200 times or more within skin tissues than when you internally take Vitamin C. In fact, in more than one-thousand clinical studies, L-Ascorbic Acid has shown both short and long-term benefits to the skin! L-Ascorbic Acid is the choice to use as other forms of Vitamin C are far less functional in getting into the skin and creating these benefits.

One of the biggest problems with Vitamin C is that it oxidizes easily.  You can see this as products with high concentrations of Vitamin C can turn orange over time. When this happens, the product actually becomes a “pro-oxidant” instead of an antioxidant and can possibly further cause oxidation of the skin. Not what we want! This is why Carolyn’s Facial Formulas Crystal Serum C uses fresh, powdered L-Ascorbic Acid to be added to the super-antioxidant serum base upon use. This way you are assured that you are getting all the benefits that Vitamin C can afford your skin.  That is the freshest and therefore most potent way to utilize topical Vitamin C.

And, what are those benefits of using fresh, topical L-Ascorbic Acid in a super-packed antioxidant serum?

Fighting Free Radicals

Vitamin C literally binds to free radicals so they are unable to damage the skin cells. The skin is able to recover from free-radical damage caused by UV radiation (too much sun), stress, pollution and poor diet when applied topically. Free radical damage leads to the development of wrinkles and lines, uneven skin-tone discolorations (including age and sun spots), loss of firmness and damage to the texture of the skin. Applied fresh, topical Vitamin C leads to a radiant, even-toned skin with fewer imperfections and a firmer feel.

Triggers Collagen Production

Collagen production can be triggered by Vitamin C which minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while restoring a more even-tone to the entire skin surface. You can see these results with Crystal Serum C within a few days and it just gets better over time and use!

Skin Can Repair at a Rate Faster and Better

When the skin is damaged through the environment by the sun, aggressive scrubbing, harsh chemicals, laser treatments, injections and cosmetic surgeries, topical Vitamin C can improve the skin’s repair rate so that your skin looks that much healthier that much sooner.  And, because Crystal Serum C uses fresh L-Ascorbic Vitamin C, you’re assured you’re getting the full potency affect!

Reduces hyperpigmentation

Vitamin C interferes with the over-production of melanin (skin pigmentation … those brown spots) by melanocytes. Those are cells responsible for the production of melanin. Vitamin C reduces the appearance of brown/age spots, freckles and many other pigmentation disorders.  The combination of Vitamin C and the powerful antioxidant serum base used in the Crystal Serum C formulation increases over-all skin radiance and brightness. You will see a lessening of hyperpigmentation within the first week of using Crystal Serum C.

Circulation is Improved

Vitamin C helps improve circulation which in turn leads to an over-all glowing, radiant and healthy appearance of the skin. This is especially true when you employ the simple facial exercises (to be performed in front of the mirror when applying the products) that come with the CFFormulas skincare line. You actually increase the circulation of the skin and feed the cells with Vitamin C.

Conclusion

The unique combination of adding the fresh L-Ascorbic Acid to the super-antioxidant serum in the Carolyn’s Facial Formula’s Crystal Serum C offers an affordable and reliable way to fight the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, loss of skin-tone, damaged skin texture, brown/age spots and over-all  saggy skin. Plus, this formulation helps to repair the skin when exposed to free-radical damage whether it’s from the sun, poor diet or laser surgery.  As well, you will start to see results within 4 to 7 days. So very nice!
