Two Doctors’ Secret Ingredient to Smooth Skin

Anyone who has ever seen a TV commercial for orange juice probably knows the benefits of Vitamin C.  As a dietary supplement, Vitamin C works as an antioxidant that helps to prevent and treat conditions like scurvy.

When taken as part of a healthy diet, Vitamin C benefits you internally.  However, you may not know that when Vitamin C is applied to the skin, it can help your skin feel more smooth and radiant.

I would not recommend rubbing orange juice on your skin, unless you really want to do so.  Instead, seek out skin products that contain Vitamin C.

Our own Vita-C Day Crème not only leaves skin feeling silky smooth, but also has other health benefits.  Daily use of it increases your skin’s resilience against ultraviolet rays.  If your skin is prone to rosacea, Vita-C Day Crème can also help calm inflammation and redness in the skin and promote even-toned skin.

Vita-C Peptide Spray has a similar effect on the skin, and, when used regularly with sunscreen, can help protect the skin further from the sun’s dangerous rays.  It also can work quicker than the Vita-C Day Crème in simply making your skin feel refreshed and you feel more energized.  You just take a few sprays with the bottle, and you get a surprisingly good pick-me-up in no more than five minutes.

As it turns out, I am not the only doctor who highly recommends Vitamin C for your skin.  Another doctor you may have heard of by the name of Dr. Oz also highlights the benefits of Vitamin C when applied directly to the skin.  Here what he has to say in the video below:
