Benefits of Vitamin C 

Sanitas, Vital C Serum, Vitamin C Moisturizer and Topical C products.

Ascorbic acid, AKA Vitamin C, is abundant in vegetables and fruits. Though it may not be as abundant in your body, “it helps the body form and maintains connective tissue,  including bones, blood vessels, and skin” (Weil). At Bellagena Spa, we believe beauty is a  natural result of a healthy body. The benefits of Vitamin C go beyond bones and blood vessels– from immune health to healthy beauty!

The antioxidant properties of vitamin C make it a vital part of skin health. “Some studies have shown that vitamin C may help prevent and treat ultraviolet (UV)-induced  photodamage” (Michels par. 1) “Vitamin C is not a “sunscreen” because it does not absorb light in the UVA or UVB spectrum. Rather, the antioxidant activity of vitamin C protects against UV-induced damage” (Michels par. 5).

Further, Vitamin C is very beneficial for its anti-wrinkling properties to reduce the appearance of aging. “Vitamin C regulates the synthesis of the structural protein collagen….Hydroxylation of collagen is necessary for its extracellular stability and support of the epidermis” (Michels par. 6) In short, Vitamin C lends to strong, beautiful skin.

Vitamin C may also have a significant role in wound healing. According to Dr.  Michels, Vitamin C limits inflammatory responses. Moreover, “[d]ata from laboratory animals and humans show that vitamin C deficiency results in poor wound healing, and vitamin C supplementation in deficient individuals shows significant benefits” (Michels par.  7). Higher intakes of Vitamin C may also have a function against the dry skin (par. 8).

Bellagena Spa loves to promote Sanitas’ products because they really offer skin care for every kind of person. In this case, Sanitas offers the best options for Vitamin C intake to promote skin health. One is the Vita C Serum. This product is “a nutrient-rich, antioxidant serum [that] addresses the visible signs of aging, brightens and delivers hydration”. Sanitas’  Vitamin C Lactic Cleanser is “a complexion renewing, active cleanser [that]lifts away dirt and debris while maintaining the skin’s natural moisture balance”. It also improves uneven skin tone and softens wrinkles for the optimal complexion. Their Vitamin C Moisturizer is fast absorbing and illuminates while defending against UV damage. Finally, Sanitas’ Topical C is a “deeply moisturizing and reparative balm”. It addresses visible signs of aging and brightens dark spots for speedy skin renewal. Bellagena Spa highly recommend these products if you really want to love your skin again!
