The effects of Vitamin C Ascorbic Crystals on the skin may include sun damage reversal and reduced aging. Most of the positive effects of Vitamin C on skin are attributed to its ability to increase the skin's production of collagen. When a person ages, the skin starts to lose elasticity due to a reduction in the amount of collagen present. Vitamin C may not be able to keep a person from aging, but it might make the process go a little more slowly. In addition to boosting collagen production, Vitamin C may also help to reverse or reduce the aging process because it is an antioxidant. Studies have shown that antioxidants may be very useful for repairing damaged cells, which could result in healthier looking skin for many people. Vitamin C is often listed as Ascorbic Acid or magnesium ascorbyl phosphate on products that contain it.
I wanted to make an under eye mask that works wonderfully to treat and prevent wrinkles and puffiness/dark spots. An organic protein contained in pearl cream shells is Nacre. Nacre is responsible for the iridescence you see in pearls and as an ingredient in pearl cream, it produces a whitening effect on your skin. This whitening effect can help reduce the appearance of age or sun spots, scars and even out skin tone, making your skin look brighter and more vibrant. Pearl Cream combined with Olive Oil. which my mask does, makes it super moisturizing and slows down the aging process.
