Symptom/ SAGGING AND WRINKLES
Solution/ Vitamin C
Every time you step outside, your face is assaulted by free radicals such as nitric oxide, carbon monoxide, and ozone. These toxins interfere with the production of cellular energy, and they damage the mitochondria, preventing cells from functioning normally. Vitamin C (a.k.a. L-ascorbic acid) is an antioxidant that’s especially good at deactivating energy-sucking pollutants and has the added value of being able to increase collagen. It’s a win-win: The more energy a cell has, the more collagen vitamin C can help to produce.
Other potent free radical– fighting antioxidants include vitamin E, CoQ10, and even hydrogen. Research shows that hydrogen might act like an antioxidant, and its molecules are so tiny that they may be able to penetrate cells more effectively. You’ll find them in 1/ Perricone MD H Elemental Energy 2 Hydrating Booster Serum (RM447.05 on www.beautyexpert.com). Antioxidants like to gang up on free radicals too, so manufacturers often add more than one. For instance, Persian Acacia extract, Lindera extract, Yeast and Soya protein complex, promotes healthy functioning throughout the cell’s lifecycle to improve skin tone, smooth its microrelief, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the skin, especially around the eye area, so eyes are visibly fresher and younger-looking.
