An anti-aging must, Vitamins A & C…
Vitamin A (retinol/retinoids) helps to support collagen production, reduce sun damage, lighten pigmentation and soften lines and wrinkles. Vitamin A derivatives are very well investigated in the world of anti-aging ingredients and treatments. And as such, everyone over the age of 30 should be using this vitamin to support collagen production. Vitamin A derivatives can be irritating to the skin, therefore a gradual introduction to your skincare regime is advised. As everyone’s skin is unique and responds differently to products, starting with Vitamin A once or twice per week will work. As your skin begins to tolerate the product, the regime can be changed to daily over time.

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is essential for maintaining healthy, glowing skin. Include this vitamin in your skin care regime to help with collagen production, help protect the skin against sun and pollution damage and to reduce collagen-degrading enzymes. Many skin care products are using this vitamin but the concentration of it in the product needs to be considered. Studies show that the best concentration of Vitamin C in skincare products is 10-20%.
