The Many Wonders of Vitamin C

We all know about the general health benefits of vitamin C, but it’s not only great in our diet, but also in our skin care products. No wonder, since science tells us this wonder vitamin contains powerful anti-oxidants able to regenerate the skin.

Vitamin C promotes increased production of collagen, improving our skin’s quality and texture.  In addition, vitamin C inhibits production of an enzyme called tyrosinase, which is responsible for “converting tyrosine into melanin, thus preventing hyperpigmentation.

Dr. Debra Jaliman, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City notes that Vitamin C not only helps repair free radical damage, but it brightens the skin and helps fade dark spots, [too],” On top of that, it can improve skin firmness “which may help prevent fine lines,” she notes.

The best part is, that unlike some other buzzworthy skin care ingredients, it doesn’t come with a long list of precautions. “Vitamin C is generally safe, gentle and effective when used in skin care,” notes Dr. Jaliman.

Four Steps to Set Back the Clock

This Sunday we set the clock forward, to signal the long awaited coming of spring. High time to set eyes on green rather than dirty white!

Mature skin showing winter damage needs its own clock set back, not forward. Coming out of hybernation mature skin is in need of special care and the following 4 step program goes a long way to help renew and rejuvenate.                                         dreamstime_xs_11675419

1. Exfoliate to get rid of accumulated dead, dry cells. This will also brighten the complexion and refine the skin texture. Apply a nourishing mask.

2. Cleanse and Tone daily using revitalizing products.

3. Apply Day & Night regenerating and lifting creams.

4. Repeat Step 1 every 2 weeks.

This month we suggest treatment products by Payot-Paris and Ilike Organic Skin Care.

Step 1. Yogurt Power Peel followed by Rich Carrot Mask by Ilike Organic Skin Care

Step 2. Fraicheur Cleanser/Toner by Payot-Paris or Rose Petal Milk/Toner by Ilike Organic.

Step 3. Perform Lift Day/Night/Neck by Payot-Paris or Glycolic Medlar Treatment by Ilike  Organic Skin Care.

Over and above the 4 steps, we recommend a special step which does not involve any product. Instead of working on the skin, this routine was specially developed by Dr.Payot to work on the facial muscles, just like going to the gym for the face.

In conjunction with high quality products it is very helpful to practice facial exercises, just like going to the gym will enhance the results of a good diet.
