Ascrobic Acid = 维生素C = Great for skin!
维生素C is important to human health for a variety of reasons, from boosting the immune system to acting as an antioxidant. It has many benefits for the skin, too. 作为一种抗氧化剂, vitamin C helps increase collagen production and combats the effects of free-radicals that result from pollutants, 过度暴露在阳光下, 以及其他有害影响. Studies have also shown that it can help reduce skin inflammation. In addition to improving general health, it has several other cosmetic benefits for skin.
维生素C is called an antioxidant and a co-enzyme. Chemically, it bonds with other compounds to create a new compound. 作为一种抗氧化剂, 维生素C bonds with free radicals—lone electrons looking for a place to call home to neutralize their charge.
Free radicals can be highly destructive, breaking up other chemical bonds to make a place for themselves. 当这种情况发生在皮肤上, it results in damage to compounds in the dermal matrix, including collagen and elastin—the proteins that give skin its firmness and resilience. 然而, when free radicals are bound to an antioxidant, they are simply neutralized with no resulting damage to other proteins or tissues.
维生素C Is Needed For Collagen Production
Our bodies use vitamin C to help make collagen. 不幸的是, environmental pollutants and exposure to UV light can lower the amount of vitamin C your body creates naturally. Without the support of vitamin C, collagen and connective tissues begin to break down. Collagen is one of the key components in the dermal matrix that gives your skin its elasticity, 色调和质感. Collagen levels and production naturally decline as we age, and as a result, skin sags and wrinkles. Boosting collagen production increases your skin’s resilience to mnimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Combining 维生素C With Specific 成分s Makes It More Powerful
There are certain skin care ingredients that can amplify 维生素C’s effects. 例如, studies show that a blend of ascorbic acid (pure 维生素C), vitamin E and ferulic acid help 维生素C protect skin from thedamage of UV rays.
维生素C’s role in collagen production is not the only reason it’s good for mature skin. 维生素C is also vital to skin repair and protection. Studies show that 维生素C can help filter environmental pollutants that can harm your skin. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and skin brightening effects to even skin tone and diminish areas of hyperpigmentation and melasma by helping to breakdown pigment deposits to fade age spots (also called liver spots), 雀斑和发红.
