Best Vitamin C Serum For Anti- Ageing

Friday, May 30, 2014

 

Vitamin C

Mismo Body Care has used science with a little help from nature to create its ACE serum. They have done this using synergy in the form of vitamins A, C & E. When put together as a combination these anti-oxidants really are the bench mark when it comes to fighting the signs of aging.

Vitamin A – Known as the skin vitamin, Mismo when doing its research decided on Retinyl Palmitate because it is a safe form of vitamin A and works on the cellular turn over. In younger skin the cell turnover is much quicker, as we age it slows down and shows up in the form of skin thickness, vitamin A’s job is to quicken it up, to thin the skin out again for that youthful look.

Vitamin C – This vitamin is an anti-oxidant so its job is to repair and encourage new even cell growth, it’s also a melanin inhibitor, over production of melanin shows up in the form of brown patches and freckles, vitamin C encourages a more refined and even skin look, it reduces the appearance of pigmentation and smooths the feel of the skin.

Vitamin E – The topical benefits of vitamin E are that it offers protection to the fat layer in the cell structure, this results in keeping moisturise in the skin. If you take the moisture away from the skin, the skin becomes dry and wrinkled.

Mismo believes vitamin C is a necessity when it comes to anti-ageing so they incorporate it into two of their anti-ageing products, ACE Serum and their Anti-Wrinkle cream. These two products are two components of their Anti-Ageing trio.

Vitamin C is an important nutrient which is a vital component in the body’s production of collagen, these building blocks keep the skin plump and young looking, it is also a potent antioxidant that can help rejuvenate aged skin and skin that has become photo-damaged due to over exposure of ultra violet rays. Over time this exposure causes deep set wrinkles, fine lines, brown marks due to the over production of melanin and loss of collagen and elastin. Think collagen as the frame that holds up the elastin – the bounce in our skin.

Mismo uses an oil form of vitamin C called ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate, compared to vitamin C that is in a “water soluble” such as the ascorbic acid found in tablet and powder form. Water soluble vitamin C is very volatile and oxidises causing the vitamin C to change from an antioxidant which is great for the skin into a free radical toxin. Using an oil form of vitamin C ensures that the vitamin C can do its job for 12 – 18 months without oxidising.

Mismo also uses vitamin C in its Anti-Wrinkle cream, this cream contains the perfect synergy of A, C and E and has been coupled with hyaluronic acid another very important ingredient in skin care. Hyaluronic acid acts to plump up the skin from underneath acting like a cushion, helping to eliminate fine lines and even out deeper ones and also helps in preventing them in the first place. Hyaluronic acid has been promoted as a "fountain of youth” product.

So what do you get when you apply vitamin C to the skin? Younger looking skin that is for sure. ACE Vitamin C serum is a must use if you suffer from Rosacea or mature skin.

Anti Aging Serums What's the difference from a Moisturiser

Monday, March 08, 2010

ANTI AGEING/AGING SERUMS

You might wonder why there is a need to use a Serum as well as a Moisturiser and what is the difference?

Serums should do their work below the skin where Moisturisers work in the top layers of the skin and seal in the serum.

Serums come in various forms, water based gels, oils, creams. They are concentrated formulations aimed at targeting specific problems, usually lines and wrinkles, but it could be acne, dry or oily skins.

All Serums should contain at least one "active" ingredient. An active ingredient will be a concentrated specialty ingredient that actually does something to improve your skin. Better quality serums often contain 2 or even 3 of these special additives.

The price of Serums is usually high due to the cost of specialised active ingredients.

I'm fascinated by the ads on TV and radio recently selling an anti aging serum that removes lines and wrinkles within about 3 minutes - for about 8 hours. Boy this is Cinderella in real life. I bought one of these products a year or so ago but find it unpleasant to use - it makes my skin itch really badly.

Now it is a great dinner party amusement. Apply on the men because they have no makeup on and it has to be applied to clean skin. Years disappear before your eyes. If you are going to an event that lasts only a few hours you will get away with the youth but how embarrassing when the lines reappear as the day goes by!

Now the "Real" serums will work on your skin all day and night and you will notice the improvement in your complexion.

Active ingredients to look for are:

Hyaluronic Acid
Vitamin C in oil form VCIP (Ascorbyl Tetra Isopalmitate)
Matrixyl™ Synthe 6® (not Matrixyl - it's not as potent these are peptides)
MSM
Vitamins A and E

Each of the above active ingredients work in different ways to improve your  youthful looks.

How your skin will benefit from Anti Ageing serums:

  • A more plumpled, smooth, firmer appearance
  • More elasticity
  • Less pigmentation
  • Clearer skin tone
  • Diminishing of lines and wrinkles
  • Healthier skin
A good Moisturiser imparts nutrition which works more on the upper layers of the skin and enhances the effectiveness of Serum. Moisturiser also seals in the Serums which penetrate deeper than Moisturizers.

Layering skin care products is an accepted practice by beauty therapists and it takes very little time. The effort is certainly worth it.

You will know your skin care is working when friends and relatives comment and they do take notice!
