Skin care products over the years have made a number of promises all relating to turning back the hands of time and making people more youthful and beautiful looking. If there was an actual method of doing such a thing by simply applying some skin care product, they wouldn’t have to make such promises as everybody would have heard about it.
I’m not saying that there is nothing that helps with improving ones skin and how they look, I’m just saying that there is no miraculous product that has been invented as of yet. There are certain products that can help to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, and there are certain products that will help you look better as you age but there is no one answer that fits everybody’s needs the same way.
It is normal for a person’s skin to age along with that person and develop a bit of maturing, the question is when does the line get crossed from aging horribly to aging gracefully? That is the million dollar question.
As for what you can do to help yourself age more gracefully, there are a number of products and solutions that can help. Now, not every product is right for every person, meaning not everyone will react the same way to a particular product. To further explain, it’s like how people react to having headaches. For some Aspirin is the magic pill, and for others Aspirin doesn’t work but Tylenol does. Very much a similar story when it comes to skin care products.
My own personal suggestion is that the best starting off point for trying to heal, repair, restore and replenish skin to a more youthful appearance is to start the quest off by trying a Vitamin C serum. Vitamin C can do wonders for the skin, and it should be the first line of defense against any further damage to the skin.
Vitamin C, in order for it to work the best in terms of skin care has to be utilized and applied in a topical form, such as in a serum. Vitamin C itself is water-soluble and the body will not store it for later use.
A high quality topical Vitamin C serum gets delivered immediately to the are of the skin that needs the help the most immediately when using a topical solution. Once there, it can get to work below the skin’s surface doing what it does best, repairing and restoring the skin.
Your skin takes a harsh beating everyday between the damaging rays of the sun, environmental pollution, cigarette smoke and climate and humidity situations. Vitamin C can protect the skin, and is a very well documented antioxidant and free radical fighter that works really well.
The problem with most Vitamin C serums though is that Vitamin C is highly unstable and deteriorates quickly when exposed to the air and light. When ordering a topical Vitamin C serum, it is essential that you make sure it is a high quality brand, a highly stabilized form of Vitamin C, and that it is bottled is such a way that it will remain fresh and potent.
