Meet Pro-C, six antioxidant-rich facial products from A-Cute Derm. Light, refreshing, calming, protecting, and rejuvenating—Pro-C improves skin tone and softness. It helps fight UV damage and leaves your skin with a remarkably healthy glow. Healthy skin thrives off of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is essential for our skin’s overall well-being. It is the stabilizing component to keep Collagen and Fibril tissues healthy (i.e. plumped, unwrinkled, youthful-looking skin). Environmental stress caused by ultraviolet radiation (tanning beds and the sun) is the main cause of the destruction of Vitamin C in the skin.
What are antioxidants?
Antioxidants are chemicals that fight oxidization on your skin cells. Oxidation damages your skin cells and the genetic material inside them. Oxidation occurs from the molecules called free radicals that are a byproduct when we process food, sunlight, and toxins like smoke, pollution, and alcohol. We mostly get our antioxidants from plant-based foods, but our body can produce some too. Different antioxidants work differently—some stop free radicals from forming, and some break them down so they are harmless.
Vitamin C is particularly important because it can help protect the skin from sun damage and skin cancer. It can also reverse some discoloration and wrinkles that come with aging. Let’s meet the Pro-C family from A-Cute Derm—Available from Lake Havasu Cosmedics!
