Skin health comes from the inside out and is especially important when your skin has to combatIzabela both cold and windy weather, hot sunshine and central heating. “Free radicals” are part and parcel of being alive and there’s nothing we can do to stop them. They are, in a nutshell, the by-product of our body’s cells breathing. However, we don’t want them to linger, causing damage to neighbouring cells.
Certain nutrients, called antioxidants, can neutralise free radicals, and one of the best is vitamin C. Make sure that your diet is packed with vitamin C-rich, lightly steamed vegetables that retain their nutrient content. Because vitamin C is vital to the creation of collagen – the main protein in our skin and other connective tissue – it can help us to stay younger looking too. Give your vitamin C status a boost by taking 1000mg per day as magnesium ascorbate.

Using a topical vitamin C helps to protect the skin – not all topical vitamin C serums are equal – Skinceutical are the originators of antioxidants – they contain a pharmaceutical grade ingredients so have the ability to really change the skin in a very positive way.
