Vitamin C helps dryness and lowers the chance of developing wrinkles.

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient. It does everything from curing common colds, to providing protection from cardiovascular diseases, to preventing prenatal health problems. This nutrient is absolutely vital for human health as it has been implicated in providing immunity and increasing human life span. Vitamin C has yet another bonus: it protects against skin wrinkling. According to a study from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition which examined the relationship between nutrient intake and aging of the skin, higher intake of vitamin C is associated with a lower chance of developing wrinkles, and dryness.

 

How Much Do I Need?

Doctors recommend ingesting at least 500mg of Vitamin C per day to remain in good health. This if far higher than the recommended daily intake of 75 to 90 milligrams per day. Unless you don’t mind each loads and loads of vegetables and fruits, a dietary alternative is your best option. Since the discovery of Vitamin C’s relationship to youth, this nutrient has become a popular addition to various skin care products. Some of the benefits of having Vitamin C in skin cleansers and creams include: a reduction in inflammation, reduces hyper pigmentation, improves appearance of sun damaged skin, provides protection to skin cells from UV damage, and boosts the efficiency of sunscreens.

How Obagi Helps:

The Obagi Professional-C Serum is a perfect alternative to individuals who are unable to consume large amounts of fruits and vegetables but are still looking for skin protection. The Obagi Professional-C Serum is available in four strength formulations: 5%. 10%, 15%, and 20%. This product contains a stable form of L-ascorbic acid which is the form of Vitamin C that can be properly absorbed by the human skin. Apart from Vitamin C, the Professional-C Serum also contains ingredients such as Swiss Apple, Green Tea, Niacin, Turmeric, Beta-Carotene, Curcumin, and Pine Bark. This serum was developed according to scientific formulas and was designed to neutralize the negative effects of free radicals which contribute to accelerated aging. The formulation of the Professional-C Serum enables greater penetration into all the skin layers, and also gives a maximum amount of antioxidant protection. The Obagi system has better stability and low side effects compared to competitive products.

Considering the benefits of Vitamin C to our overall health, it would be advisable that women maintain a regular intake of this vitamin through their diet. The Obagi Professional-C Serum is a complement to your skin-healthy lifestyle!

Obagi and Blueberries for the Skin

Blueberries carry powerful antioxidants.

Blueberries carry powerful antioxidants.

Most of us would agree that blueberries are delicious and many of us know that blueberries are a healthy snack. They contain fiber, vitamins and minerals. However, not many of us understand what powerful antioxidants that blueberries contain. Blueberries are truly a super food – or shall we say super fruit – and they are excellent for the skin! This is great news for those of us looking to improve the appearance of the under eye skin, which is a problem area for many of us.

 

Now from Obagi premium skincare, ELASTIderm Eye Treatment Gel contains blueberry extract. Imagine using a natural extract that contains Vitamin C and polyphenols; both which are strong antioxidants and have anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals. These unstable molecules work to make your skin look older, saggy, wrinkled and dull. However, with the blueberry extract in ELASTIderm, you can fight back and win!

 

This antioxidant action helps to restore the soft, youthful skin under your eyes while alleviating puffiness and wrinkles. The specific polyphenols in blueberries are called anthocyanins and they give the blueberry its signature blue coloring. In addition to fighting free radicals, Vitamin C helps in the formation of collagen.

 

ELASTIderm’s potent formula is a technologically advanced blend of minerals, malonic acid and blueberry extract that revitalizes the skin under and around your eyes. ELASTIderm is so effective yet so gentle and comes in an easy to use cool, fluid gel that absorbs quickly. It’s ideal for normal to oily skin and perfect for the summer heat and humidity, when you may need a lighter textured eye gel. You can see the results fast with this truly unique Obagi eye product.

 

What are you waiting for? Today is the day that you can finally put the power of the blueberry to work under your eyes – instead of just on your taste buds! Get in touch with your Obagi skin care professional or order online now to get your bottle of Obagi ELASTIderm Eye Treatment Gel. You have nothing to lose, except wrinkles, puffiness and dull skin!
