A new product that I love is Medik8 CE-Tetra. This topical preparation of vitamin C combined with vitamin E is used to reduce wrinkles, improve smoothness and firmness. It also may protect against sun damage from UVA and UVB. The anti-photo aging properties of topical vitamin C have been evaluated in clinical trials. Some of these investigations are done on ½ the face. One is able to use themselves as the control with a placebo cream on the other side. Most women see a remarkable improvement. Biopsies confirm an increase in mRNA for collagen type I with the use of topical vitamin C. It is a free radical, which may contribute to the decrease in redness and sunburn cell formation when your skin is exposed to sunlight. There are also animal studies that suggest a combination of vitamin C and E is 4x better than either one alone.
To use, I put a few drops on my fingers and rub it in all over my face after my initial face wash. Then I wait a few minutes to apply my moisturizer and sunscreen. Here is to looking younger naturally!
