The Power of C


Anti-Aging and UV protection with Vitamin C Your body requires, but doesn’t naturally produce, this skin-healthy antioxidant.

Turns out, mom was right. Your morning glass of orange juice is essential to get your body going and keep it healthy. Orange juice is packed full of the essential antioxidant L-ascorbic acid (also known as vitamin C). Vitamin C — and all other antioxidants, in fact — protect the body’s cells from damage, including preventing signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles. However, our bodies don’t naturally produce vitamin C, meaning we need to get it from outside nutrient-rich sources.

L-ascorbic acid does as much good for the skin as it does for your body. Unfortunately, your skin is the last organ in the body to receive these healthy nutrients, so even when you’re getting the recommended daily dose of vitamin C, very little of that is making its way to your skin. This is why topical vitamin C is recommended every morning.

90% of visible aging is the result of external factors, most of which is due to UV exposure. Even if you’re applying — and reapplying — broad spectrum sun protection every day, you’re likely still experiencing some sort of environmental damage to the skin. Vitamin C helps protect the skin from the effects of UV exposure, keeping your skin looking youthful and healthy.

PCA SKIN® has two advanced vitamin C products: C&E Strength and C&E Strength Max. Both have powerful percentages of vitamin C for anti-aging and skin damage prevention. These formulas have the most potent forms of vitamins C and E for maximum results in anti-aging and prevention for your healthiest and most protected skin.
