We tend to strengthen in force when we come together. Just as there’s power in numbers for humankind, two can be better than one when it comes to vitamins. Especially two hero vitamins. Here, a tale of the union of vitamins C and E. It’s a little love story with happily-ever-after ending...for your skin.
We all know the benefits of vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid. Not only does ingesting it help boost our immune systems, it’s actually necessary for the growth and development of all body tissues, involved in collagen formation, iron formation, teeth maintenance and wound healing, to name just a few of its serious advantages. No wonder it’s nearly omnipresent in most serums these days: Applying it to your skin can translate to an instant improvement. Vitamin C is a tried-and-true mega-antioxidant with the ability to neutralize free radicals —and as you probably already know, free radicals are not our friends. Far from it. Anyone who’s interested in preventing signs of aging and damage, thanks to often unavoidable evils like pollution and UV damage, should be down with vitamin C. It’s a major multi-tasker with the ability to brighten, lighten, tighten, tone, clarify and gently exfoliate the skin. It even possesses a property that inhibits melanin production, a common culprit of hyperpigmentation and dark spots.
Naturally, stabilized vitamin C is a key ingredient in our Resurfacing Compound. But like most great things, even ascorbic acid leaves room for improvement. Or for greater potency, to be more specific. Enter vitamin E. Like any great couple, these two are natural complements, bringing out the best in each other and in turn, the best in your skin.
Ultimately, vitamin E is, yes, a vitamin, but to be truly specific, it’s technically the name for a group of oil-soluble antioxidants. While there are eight different types of vitamin E out there in the world, it’s the one called tocopherol you find in your serums and oils. Like its counterpart, it eliminates free radicals and assists with cellular restoration. The soluble compound is also a natural anti-inflammatory and moisturizer (which is why you might find your skin isn’t even craving much moisturizer after using the Resurfacing Compound).
When vitamins C and E powers are combined, your skin gets double the benefits. And how many benefits there are! Here are the capabilities of this dynamic duo: It visibly enhances your skin tone. Accelerates the production of collagen and elasticity. Helps reduce visible redness and irritation. Improves normal cellular turnover. Fortifies skin’s moisture barrier. Diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Promotes radiance and glow. You probably get the idea. Of course, these two are key ingredients in the Resurfacing Compound, along with peptides, hyaluronic acid, AHA and other antioxidants.
Don’t forget to layer the Compound under your moisturizer, if you use it, so your skin really reaps the benefits of this perfectly matched power couple. It gets to absorb the Compound directly and the layer of moisturizer acts as a protective barrier, sealing in all the goodness.
It takes two to make your skin go right. And all it takes is one great Compound that packs it all in to keep your skin fresh and tight.
