Here’s an exciting skincare keyword for you: Free radicals. We’ve heard about them, we know it’s bad for skin health, but what exactly are they?
Free radicals are unstable molecules generated by our skin in response to a few aggressors: second-hand smoke, industrial pollution and the SUN. You read that right – the sun is the biggest cause of the destructive breakdown of all layers of our skin (so big that it accounts for over 90% of free radicals in our skin… yikes).
Not all is a lost cause, because here comes our hero ingredient: the almighty Vitamin C. Topical Vitamin C is needed to fight the accelerated aging process by providing antioxidant protection to neutralize free radicals, at the same time, being an integral part of new collagen synthesis.
Introducing Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare’s latest range: VitaminC Lactic. Combining the ideal percentage of Vitamin C, Lactic Acid (AHA), Niacinamide and a cocktail of super ingredients for a transformative experience to radiant, visibly energized skin.
But Why Vitamin C and Lactic Acid?
Think of these two super ingredients as the ultimate besties – they thrive better together than when they’re apart. While Vitamin C provides all the antioxidant goodness, it’s only good in the long run when Lactic Acid (AHA) comes into the mix to remove the surface layer of dead skin to facilitate product absorption. Beyond that, Lactic Acid also upregulates ceramides to increase the skin’s water content, causing Vitamin C to go deeper in the skin. Talk about teamwork!
