Ingredients & Usage
Vitamin C Serum with HA (Hyaluronic Acid)
Vitamin C and the Effect on Skin
Vitamin C is critical for your body and plays an important role in maintaining healthy, resilient skin. While young skin is full of vitamin C, aging skin naturally loses this nutrient over time. The good news is that you can fight back by replenishing your skin’s vitamin C levels to help combat and even reverse time’s effect on your face.
One of the most powerful functions of vitamin C is its role in the production of collagen, a protein that gives your skin its elasticity. As you age, collagen breaks down and wrinkles begin to form. Stabilizing your skin’s levels of vitamin C can help to counteract wrinkle formation by increasing collagen production. The length of time from when you start using vitamin C until you see results varies with each person. While some people see changes as soon as 2-4 weeks, it may take others 6-8 weeks to see a difference. After around 6 months, you’ll reach the maximum benefits.
When it comes to treating age spots, you don’t need chemical peels and lasers – it turns out that vitamin C can have almost the same results! Age spots are essentially sun damage, and vitamin C is shown to reduce the number of sunburned cells as well as reverse age-related damage to skin. While it’s not a replacement for sunscreen, vitamin C protects against and may repair UV damage like discoloration and fine lines.
DMAE Moisturizing Lotion with HA (Hyaluronic Acid)
DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol) and the Effect on Skin
Topical creams that include DMAE aid in tightening the muscles that keep your skin looking healthy to diminish the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and sagging.
DMAE is made from fruit acid. It is an organic compound. It is known to instantly tighten the skin and penetrate easily and readily. The more often it is applied topically - this tightening effect is made stronger. The skin therefore becomes softer and more elastic with repeated use. With its anti-inflammatory effects, DMAE can soothe irritated skin, effectively aid in the healing of wounds and is successful for hydration of the skin. When applied to the skin DMAE stimulates acetylcholine release which triggers a response in the muscles of the face. This activity creates a firmer facial tone and less sagging. DMAE also assists in firming up the muscles and therefore the skin of the face and neck. DMAE is used topically to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Unlike many other skincare products, such as Retin A, which only reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, DMAE actually works to address the root of the problem to help reverse muscle sagging. DMAE treats the cause, not the symptom, of loss of firmness in the skin.
DMAE is considered a safe substance with few to no side effects or adverse reactions. It should be noted that DMAE can cause a tingling sensation that is perfectly normal and how it feels when it is working. Most people see a slight difference within a few days of application, but it doesn't stop there. DMAE also has a cumulative effect. It continues to make your skin better with the passing weeks, months and years.
HA (Hyaluronic Acid) and the Effect on Skin
Hyaluronic Acid is actually a natural structural component of skin, and, in fact, is present in connective tissue throughout the human body.
So why is hyaluronic acid such a big deal? The magic of this ingredient lies in its ability to retain moisture; it’s considered to have a greater capacity to hold moisture than any other natural or synthetic polymer. In fact, one gram of hyaluronic acid is able to hold up to six liters of water. This is important with regard to aging because one of the primary characteristics of youthful skin is its moisture content. As we age, our skin loses moisture, resulting in a loss of firmness and pliability.
Hyaluronic acid can improve your skin’s moisture content and at the same time strengthen skin’s barrier; that is, the outer layers of your skin. A healthy barrier looks and feels softer, smoother, and plumper—all features of younger-looking skin! But, with hyaluronic acid, that’s not all you get—there are many additional benefits beyond just a more youthful appearance. We know that just about everything, from sun damage and acne to sensitive skin and rosacea, can lead to a damaged barrier, so repairing skin’s barrier with skin-identical ingredients, like hyaluronic acid, can go a long way toward fixing, or at least minimizing, those issues, which means it’s helpful for all skin types. Its lightweight texture isn’t an issue for oily skin, and it’s gentle enough that it isn’t a problem for sensitive skin. Hyaluronic acid is also safe to use while pregnant or breastfeeding.
When it comes to skincare, hyaluronic acid, when applied topically, can improve the appearance of fine lines, promote younger-looking skin, and help create a healthy skin barrier that can address a number of skin concerns. When these ingredients are combined with an anti-aging, skin-smoothing routine that includes gentle products and daily broad-spectrum sun protection, you’ll be ahead of the game when it comes to using skincare products to look younger, longer (and help repair past damage)!
