Pro Secrets for Beautiful Skin - Vitamin C

If we had a $ for every derm who mentioned using a skin-care product w/vitamin C, we could buy an orange grove!! Haha!

Anyone that knows me, knows that Vit C is a favorite of mine when it comes to skin-care products. My favorite line is the Vital C line by Image SkinCare. One of my favorite facials is a Vitamin C chemical peel after microdermabrasion.

Vitamin C is a key ingredient needed to manufacture the collagen that keeps your complexion plump and smooth.

Listed below are some of the many, many other benefits that topical Vit C has on the skin:(I highlighted my favs)

Greater penetration to the epidermis and dermis, greater benefit
Neutralizes free radical damage caused by UV light, smoke, and air pollution
Allows skin cells to remain healthy and able to perform their necessary functions
Helps moisturize and increase skin hydration
Stimulates collagen production
Restores elasticity
Prevents premature skin aging
Protects against damaging
UVA and UVB rays
Reverses the appearance of photoaging
Decreases fine lines and wrinkles
Lightens and brightens the skin for more even tone
Fades brown spots

Helps reduce oiliness and restore sebum balance
Helps to normalize problem skin (pimples, blackheads, and other problems associated with oily skin)

If you are in the mood for a real treat...schedule a microdermabrasion followed by a Vitamin C peel.....your skin will thank you by glowing and making you look fabulous!!!

Have a great weekend!!!!

It's a New Year....Give your Skin a Fresh Start!!!

When making a list of all your New Year's Resolutions this year...make sure your skin is at the top of the list!!!

Give your skin a "fresh start" this winter!!!

The holidays may be over, but stress-induced skin concerns like dullness and blemishes can last for weeks!

To refresh your skin...use a face mask!

Facial masks are more concentrated and stay on longer than lotions, so the active ingredients are able to penetrate deeper into the skin.

My favorite mask pick is, Vital C hydrating enzyme mask by Image Skincare.

Vital C is a hydrating mask that also gently exfoliates the build up of dull, dry skin. It uses vitamins A, C and E and promotes healthier, more radiant and youthful skin.

Favorite Treatment of the Month:

Relaxing Microdermabrasion Facial followed by a Vital C Mask! It feels so good especially during these cold and dry months!!!

Call now to schedule your pampering facial!!!!

Vital C Mask available for purchase at Simply Skin & Laser!
