We, human beings, do not have the ability to produce Vitamin C in our bodies.
Yes, we can take vitamin C orally, in pill form and eating fruits that are rich in vitamin C is extremely important for maintaining our overall health. Unfortunately, where our skin is concerned, Vitamin C needs to be applied topically, and then it is absorbed by the skin.
This delivery system is 20x more effective than oral ingestion when we are treating our skin.Once it is absorbed into our skin, it cannot be washed off.
Vitamin C is the most abundant protein in our body. It constitutes 75% of our skin. Collagen works with elastin to support the skin. It supplies the framework that provides firmness and strength. It is the main connective tissue that holds us together.
The amount of Collagen in our skin declines as we age. Collagen decline is also accelerated with factors like sunlight, smoking, free radicals and inflammation.
As synthesis of new Collagen slows down, topical vitamin C is the most effective way to boost Collagen Synthesis and slow down degradation.
With the decline of Vitamin C from aging, we must effectively increase the concentration of Vitamin C to our skin. Applying Vitamin C directly to the skin is the most effective method for replenishing Vitamin C.
When applied topically, Vitamin C provides skin-rejuvenating effects by improving Collagen Synthesis in the skin-which slows down with aging and free radicals.
Applying Vitamin C to the skin is 20x more effective than taken orally. Adding Vitamin for three days can achieve optimal levels of Vitamin C in the skin.
Rejuvenating skin by constantly replenishing Vitamin C stores can help maintain healthy, younger looking skin.

There are three things I include in my nightly skincare ritual. After I get out of the tub, I take 2 phyto-ceramide supplements, then I put Epidermal Growth Factor Serum on my face and let it absorb ( which takes less than a minute). and then I put my Vitamin C serum on top of that. Afterwards, I put whatever I am experimenting with at the moment, and then a nighttime moisturizer, and if I still have some strength left, I put on a Korean Sleeping Pack (Sleeping Mask). My point is, there are only a small amount of products that are scientifically proven to work. Aside from Retinol, which I use every third night, the Ceramides, The EGF Serum, and The Vitamin C Serum are proven to perform specific functions that occur in deep layers of the skin, which keep your aging skin cells ( which start to age in your late 20’s) rejuvenated and improve collagen synthesis in the skin to keep producing new collagen which keeps your skin looking young!
