Vitamin C Probiotic Powdered Face Mask
Vitamin C is an essential component in the body’s production of collagen and a potent antioxidant that can help rejuvenate skin.
Replenishing Vitamin C levels directly in the skin can help combat collagen degradation and oxidative stress. Results from clinical trials show that when applied topically, vitamin C promotes collagen formation and mitigates the effects of free radicals, helping to maintain firm and youthful skin. Collagen works hand-in-hand with elastin to support the skin. Basically, it supplies the framework that provides form, firmness, and strength to the skin, while elastin is what gives skin its flexibility.
The most effective method for replenishing vitamin C in the skin is to go straight to the source, and apply it directly to the skin.
Probiotics work in a similar way as they do for the digestive system. They help it remain in a balanced state. Surface-level, this translates to a complexion that’s not too dry nor too oily, and skin that can effectively repel the environmental conditions that cause inflammation. In other words, if you want a flawless glow, nurturing your skin flora is the place to start.
