Vitamin C & E are critical for the skin, as they play a role of antioxidant warriors to maintain healthy glowing skin. Antioxidants are warriors that neutralize the effects of free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that damage cells causing premature aging. When the skin is adolescent and youthful it is full of vitamin C but as it ages it loses this vitamin. Free radical like UV light, cigarette smoke, and pollution also contribute to Vitamin C loss and accelerates the signs of aging. Vitami

Vitamin A Propionate penetrates into epidermis where it undergoes the conversion into Vitamin A acid, then it’s absorbed into the skin cells by Retinoic Acid Receptors. Once converted, the vitamin A propionate sends a message to the cell to regenerate at a faster rate, encouraging cell production and exfoliation. There is also an increase of collagen and elastin.
Sun damage is cumulative over the years and applying a sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays is ideal. UVA (ultraviolet A) is a long radiation wave that causes skin damage, aging and possible cancer. UVB (ultraviolet B) is a shorter radiation wave that causes sunburns, skin damage and possible cancer.

Oily Skin is characterized by an over production of sebum of the sebaceous gland. Sebum is the skins natural lubricant, but when it’s in excess it becomes thick and heavy in texture. The skin will have a “shiny” look (seborrhea oleosa) and will be acne prone. This type of skin can be rough in texture and tends to have large visible pores. Oily skin is less prone to wrinkles and fine lines because the sebum helps lock in moisture by creating a barrier of oil. Contrary to belief, oily skin can be
skin is the most common type and is characterized by an oily t-zone (nose, forehead and chin) area, followed by a normal to dryness on the cheeks and around the eyes. Both sections of this type of skin require different skin care regimens. The t-zone area is prone to acne. Combination skin will change according to the climate or season; at times it will be completely oily, and others dry.
Dehydrated skin is deficient of water, but can still produce oil. Visual signs of this skin condition include flaky, and a skin tightness. Fine lines can form easily due to the epidermal cells being “collapsed,” lacking the water that typically makes the surface smoother. Dehydrated skin is common among those who are oily and/or acne-prone because of their use products that strip the skin of water. This is why it is important to use a moisturizer regardless of skin condition.
