44. Plastic Surgery, Botox or Topical C?

44. Plastic Surgery, Botox or Topical C?

If there is one ingredient that we should include every day to promote skin health it would be topical Vitamin C, as an antioxidant in neutralizing skin-damaging free radicals, called proteases, that are activated by the sun and other environmental stresses. OrangeDaily provides its consumers with a system of masterfully formulated products that are formulated to deliver activated vitamin C to the deeper layers of the skin.

There are other benefits in the daily use of topical vitamin C. Keep in mind that while many plants produce their own vitamin C, humans must rely upon outside sources such as using the vitamin C from plants. In essence, skin cells remain “plump” with an adequate amount of collagen and elastin. Vitamin C promotes the production of collagen and elastinwhich is the “skeletal” structure inside the cell. Without collagen and elastin, cells become withered. As one ages, the body loses its’ ability to produce collagen and elastin. This is evident in wrinkling of the skin, a sign of aging. A daily application of vitamin C promotes the ability of the skin to produce collage and elastin. Vitamin C is a key component to diminish wrinkling by tightening the skin.

It is important to further point out that wrinkling can be reversed using other methods by treating wrinkled skin with products such as Botox or through plastic surgery. Informed decisions on each method will help a consumer to choose their personal skin rejuvenation. It is noteworthy that the use of inflammatory creams or injections provide the consumer with a quick fix. However, this method is only temporary. Furthermore, there is little nutritional health benefit in the use of inflammatory products.  Plastic surgery could be a good choice, if sagging skin is beyond natural repair. However, this choice is both invasive and expensive and needs to be in the hands of a skilled surgeon. Once again, surgery does nothing towards promoting the production of collagen and elastin. As a result, some people will “chase” surgery after surgery in an attempt to remove unwanted wrinkles that continue to form over time.

The shortfalls of inflammatory products and plastic surgery can be mitigated through the use of topical vitamin C.  Vitamin C goes to the heart of the problem – promoting an increased production of elastin and collagen. Skin that has adequate amounts of vitamin C can hydrate and wrinkles are reduced. This is not an “overnight” rejuvenation. Noticeable wrinkle improvement is usually not evident for a few weeks. While this might not be acceptable to some people, most physical changes through diet and exercise require time and consistency for results. I call these methods of change “truth in health.” Keep this in mind when considering the choice you make in your skin health decisions. The OrangeDaily system of products was designed with one thought in mind: “ Healthy Skin is Beautiful Skin and Beautiful skin is Healthy Skin.”
