A pillar of Murad Health is topical skincare and a hero range of mine is the Murad Environmental Shield. Packed full of vitamin C and glycolic it is great for pigmentation, sun damage and ageing skins.
So why do I love it so much ?
🍊Vitamin C is an essential antioxidant that works on the skin’s surface to actively prevent environmental damage; however, not all vitamin C is created equal. Many forms lack stability and bioavailability (how well the skin can use an ingredient) that hinder its potency and power, and even render it useless. 💦Vitamin C is a water-soluble molecule, meaning it is limited in its ability to penetrate the skin for maximum absorption. 🍊 However there are some next generation vitamin Cs that are oil soluble too! Combining both types of vitamin C makes for a great recipe! 🌟Murad’s gold-stabilised Vita-C Complex is highly stable, bioactive and preserves efficacy for full-strength results every time you use it.
🍊So why does skin need Vitamin C?
Skin undergoes an ageing process that is affected by genetic factors and the exposure to environmental factors. Exposure to UVA/UVB rays, blue light from devises, pollution, smoking and a poor diet can accelerate skin damage through oxidative stress. This stress can show on the skin as hyper-pigmentation, dullness, lines, wrinkles and loss of firmness. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that supports healthier-looking skin, neutralising oxidants to help prevent visible skin damage. Unfortunately, our bodies do not naturally produce vitamin C, so we must ingest vitamin C and apply to the skin. So that has it, simple and effective molecule for fight the signs of ageing.
Later in June 2021 we have an exciting new launch so watch this space!
