38. Topical C + Hyaluronic Acid for Crow’s Feet

Have you noticed tiny lines, commonly known as “crow’s feet”, multiplying at the corners of your eyes? You can diminish these wrinkles around your eyes and prevent new ones from appearing with skincare products that include topical vitamin C with hyaluronic acid, proven to help plump skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines.

In this article, we’ll explore the anti-aging benefits of topical vitamin C and hyaluronic acid, individually as well as combined. These two important skincare ingredients have been clinically proven to produce dramatic results when used consistently, over time.

What Causes “Crow’s Feet”?

“Crow’s Feet” is a nickname for the tiny lines that begin forming around your eyes as you get older. This isn’t just a problem for older ladies, since it’s not uncommon for these lines to show up on faces even in the 20s. All of the following contribute to their formation:

•          Laughter

•          Crying

•          Tugging on the eye area

•          Smoking

•          Environmental pollutants

Because the eye area is the most delicate part of the face with thinner skin and fewer oil glands to hold in moisture, fine lines usually begin forming here first. Use a gentle touch around the eyes, and consider giving up smoking for your internal health as well as your skin health. Laughing and crying are a part of life that can’t be avoided, but a quality skincare product can help protect your skin from environmental pollutants.

Is Topical Vitamin C Good for the Skin?

Fruits and vegetables provide essential antioxidants in our diet, but the vitamin C making it to the epidermal skin layers through diet alone is reduced. Vitamin C has been clinically proven to support collagen production, even out skin tones, reduce under-eye circles, accelerate healing and improve skin hydration to give your skin a more youthful appearance.

Vitamin C is known, however, to be an unstable, easily oxidized antioxidant when exposed to light and air. SAP is the best choice for the transdermal application of vitamin C as it can penetrate the epidermis into the dermis layer of the skin. Look for skincare formulations that counteract this problem by using sodium ascorbyl phosphate (SAP), the most stable and easily absorbable form of vitamin C available.

What Is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a molecule naturally formed in the body and found in connective tissue, bone, cartilage, and skin, with the amazing ability to act as a protective barrier in our skin, holding up to a thousand times its molecular weight in water. It locks in moisture and blocks out dryness. This is especially important for use around the eyes since the skin in that area does not have sufficient oil glands to shield natural moisture.

Skin becomes dryer and thinner as we age. Hyaluronic acid used topically can bring back moisture to the skin. As it increases moisture, it may work to plump skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, hyaluronic acid is a gentle, nourishing ingredient that supports skin healing.

How Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid Work Together

These two ingredients produce amazing results on their own. By combining them, they work together in the most sensitive area of your face. Results can include:

•          Increased moisturize in skin

•          Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles

•          Increased production of collagen and elastin

•          More even skin tone

•          Smoother complexion

•          Reversed sun damage

•          Reduction in acne or blemishes

Take Care of Your Largest Organ

Your skin is the largest organ in your body and serves an important purpose by acting as our first line of defense from our environment. Protecting our skin with quality products should be a priority. Vitamin C and hyaluronic acid are key skincare ingredients that can decrease the appearance of “crow’s feet” and help hydrate your skin.

Consistency is key. Just like one workout won’t make you fit, and one application of even the best skincare product won’t reverse years of damage. Use these products daily over several weeks to see preliminary results. After several months of use, you’ll see measurable improvements of skin damage, fine lines and wrinkles. Consider the addition of topical vitamin C products to your daily skincare routine as a lifestyle change. By adding these products for the long-term, you’ll not only see visible changes in your skin, but you’ll also be taking a pro-active step to prevent future damage.
