Improves Skin Texture & Visibly Reduces Blemishes
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient in the formation of collagen, the fibrous protein that contributes to skin firmness. When the skin is exposed to free-radical generators (e.g. UV light, smoke, air, etc.), the Vitamin C becomes depleted. Laboratory measurements have shown that two thirds of the Vitamin C is destroyed when skin is exposed to UV light. Not enough Vitamin C reaches the skin through oral ingestion therefore it is necessary to replenish the lost Vitamin C topically.
C2S Intensive Facial Treatment contains two forms of Vitamin C – a water-soluble form (Ascorbic Acid) and an oil soluble form (Ascorbyl Palmitate).
Vitamin C is poorly absorbed through the skin so by using a water-soluble and oil soluble form of the vitamin, the amount of Vitamin C that penetrates to the deeper layers of the epidermis is maximized.
Salicylic Acid is a beta hydroxyacid that exfoliates the outer layer of skin, increasing the normal exfoliation rate by 20% without irritation. Studies have shown that when Vitamin C is applied to normal skin versus skin that is exfoliated, the level of Vitamin C that penetrates to the deeper layers of the skin increases more than 800 %. Therefore, by combining Salicylic Acid with the two forms of Vitamin C, we have the best system possible to insure maximum penetration of Vitamin C into the skin. Also, C2S contains Vitamin E, which works synergistically with Vitamin C in combating free radicals that damage and prematurely wrinkle skin.
The two forms of Vitamin C in C2S are essential for the production of collagen in skin cells. Collagen is needed for the firmness and elasticity of skin cells – degeneration of the collagen leads to sagging and wrinkling of the skin. The Vitamin C in C2S is a potent anti-oxidant.
After Vitamin E neutralizes potentially damaging free radicals, its own chemical structure can become unstable. Vitamin C restores Vitamin E so that it can go on zapping free radicals. The Salicylic Acid in C2S will exfoliate the outer layers of skin, smoothing out rough skin and help to increase the absorption of Vitamin C.
Reduces skin oiliness by lowering sebum output. Vitamin C has a known effect of normalizing oiliness. Pimples, blackheads and other problems associated with oily skin will disappear because of the anti-microbial effect of salicylic acid and the anti- inflammatory effect of Vitamin C.
Skin will appear more hydrated and less dry; fine lines and wrinkles will diminish and the clarity of the skin will improve.
Skin that has a blotchy appearance will become more even in tone since Vitamin C is a very effective skin lightener. Helps prevent and diminish freckles and spots, greatly improving skin tone.
C2S will improve skin firmness and elasticity of the skin.
With continued use, the Vitamin C levels will build in the skin and provide protection when you need it against free radicals generated by UV light exposure. It can also be used after sun exposure to reduce inflammation. Helps prevent and repair sun damage.
C2S will help reduce broken blood capillaries.
C2S effectively fuels skin cells and stimulates their regeneration, bringing renewed vitality and freshness. Regular use will result in a complexion that is visibly brighter and clearer with a smooth tight texture.
At night, place two to three drops into the palm of your clean hand. Using the index finger of the other hand, apply the C2S on those areas of the face and neck needing the greatest improvement of fine lines and wrinkles, oily areas and/or areas of irritation. After application, apply a moisturizer. If desired, use in the morning under your make-up and/or moisturizer.
