Darker days, but brighter skin
As the autumn roll in, there’s an easy way to maintain your skin’s summer glow, whilst overcoming some of the damage caused by sun exposure. Unexpectedly however, we’re recommending you do it from the inside out – by increasing your vitamin C intake.
Altrient C have created the world’s first liposomal vitamin C gel, created to be capable of delivering a 98 per cent absorption rate of this hero vitamin. The phospholipid delivery system, which protects the vitamin as it travels through the digestive system and into the bloodstream, allows Altrient C to deliver a higher absorption rate than most standard vitamin C supplements.
How does vitamin C help your skin? Its antioxidant properties help to counter free radical cell damage caused by excess sun exposure and has incredible wound-healing properties for sun burn. Vitamin C also aids the production of hydroxylysine and hydroxyproline, both necessary for binding the molecules that create collagen which boosts tissue growth and strengthens the skin.
A study with Princeton Consumer Research demonstrated the efficacy of Altrient C for boosting collagen production. Three sachets daily resulted in a 61 per cent increase in skin elasticity and firmness in just 12 weeks. There might not be many mosquitos buzzing about now, but thanks to its anti-inflammatory healing properties, vitamin C can also be used to treat insect bites. It counters the histamine released by the immune system cells when bitten, and causes receptors in our blood vessels to enlarge, swell and become red and itchy. Perfect for autumn skin care, and perfect for winter holidays to sun destinations!
