Vitamin C Skin Care Products

By Peter T. Pacik, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Physician Strength Vitamin C Skin Care from Obagi and Applied Therapeutics

We are proud to offer previously unavailable physician strength Vitamin C skin care products from renowned skin care manufacturers Obagi and Applied Therapeutics. Vitamin C is thought of as a "healing antioxidant" because it can help the skin recover from injuries including environmental insult from excessive sun exposure, pollution and smoking.

How Vitamin C Skin Care Products Help Your Skin

Vitamin C skin care products can help your skin in a number of ways. Since skin requires Vitamin C to produce collagen, skin care products with Vitamin C can help improve skin's firmness and elasticity. When applied directly to the skin, Vitamin C skin care products can provide significant protection against sun damage since it can absorb both UVA and UVB rays. Vitamin C skin care products also have anti-inflamatory properties, so they can be soothing to skin that has been burned by the sun or otherwise. The anti-oxidant properties of Vitamin C skin care enhance skin's natural healing properties and can help reduce scarring from injury.

Not all Vitamin C Skin Care Products are Equal!

Here ar our offices we have been testing Vitamin C skin care products as serums and creams and have found that there is a significant difference in effectiveness between physician strength Vitamin C skin care products and those found over-the-counter. As Vitamin C oxidizes it turns yellow, then brown. With this oxidization, Vitamin C products lose much of their potency and healing power. All of the Vitamin C skin care products we offer, are certified physician strength, which means that they are stable and non-oxidized.

Vitamin C Skin Care Systems

We are proud to offer Obagi-C Rx, the first and only comprehensive Vitamin C skin care system that also uses hydroquinone to help achieve radiant skin.

Obagi-C Rx Vitamin C Skin Care System

This Vitamin C skin care system delivers superior penetration to all levels of the skin, resulting in radiant and luminescent skin. This system is excellent for people who are concerned with the emerging signs of photodamage (blotchy pigmentary changes and/or brown spots), those who already use a Vitamin C skin care supplement, and those who are intolerant of Retin-A.

Supplementing Your Normal Skin Care Program with Vitamin C

We recommend that customers interested in Vitamin C skin care try a Vitamin C product as a supplement to their everyday therapeutic skin care program. You can either use Vitamin C 2-3 times a week or every day if your skin will tolerate its potency. Vitamin C skin care should be applied in the morning, after cleanser and before lotions, creams and sunscreens.

Obagi Cffectives Stable Vitamin C Skin Care

Cffectives Vitamin C skin care serum corrects sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles. Cffectives stable Vitamin C skin care serum also has anti-inflamatory benefits that reduce redness and irritation associated with Retin-A, lasers and other resurfacing procedures. Stable Vitamin C skin care acts as a potent anti-oxidant, neutralizing the effects of free Oxygen radicals and reversing the effects of aging. It is important to know that to be effective, Vitamin C must be in its stable form. Otherwise it does not have the ability to penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin.

Cffectives Vitamin C skin care serums contain the only form of Vitamin C the human body can utilize, L-Ascorbic Acid. Stability and potency is maintained through a patented process that prevents the Vitamin C skin care serum from turning yellow or brown as other Vitamin C products may do. When a Vitamin C product turns brown, it has oxidized and thus becomes ineffective. Cffectives Vitamin C skin care serums maintain their clarity for up to 2 years, making them the some of the most stable Vitamin C skin care products available.

Applied Therapeutics Revitalizing Vitamin C Capsules

This Vitamin C skin care supplement is designed help promote collagen rejuvenation and reduce damage caused by sun exposure. These Vitamin C skin care capsules prevent breakdown from oxidization through a patented dual-encapsulation system. Each single use Vitamin C gel capsule is blended with a special moisturizing base for optimal application. When applied, this Vitamin C skin care product delivers pure, stabilized, active Vitamin C.
