I am back today to give you some information about using Citrus extracts in your skin care routine. We have recently added a proprietary citrus blend to Purely Shea shea butter. The major benefits to using citrus involve the following:
- Anti-oxidant protection
- Vitamin & phytonutrient nourishment
- Aromatherapy properties
Today we will focus on the Anti-Oxidant protection benefits of using Citrus extracts in your skin products
Citrus skin care products are rich in Vitamin C which is one of the most important antioxidants in nature. Vitamin C travels through the body neutralizing any free radicals with which it comes into contact. Free radicals can interact with the healthy cells of the body, damaging them and their membranes causing premature aging of our skin.
Free radical damage can be seen by the formation of wrinkles, age spots, loss of elasticity and assorted other aging skin care issues including the potential for skin cancer. Citrus containing skin care products and its rich antioxidant Vitamin C
helps protect skin from the signs of aging by the following:
- increasing collagen
- increasing elastin
- stimulating cellular renewal
- increasing healthy circulation
Next time we’ll talk about the benefits of the nourishing vitamins and phytonutrients in Citrus skin care.
