The skin educator and this is the last video in my vitamin series so if you haven’t already I do have a video on vitamin A and vitamin b3 and I will leave a link in the description below of that playlist but I’ll also pop it up in the cards somewhere so go watch that video after this video so that way you’re all up to date with your vitamins in today’s video I’m going to be sharing with you how vitamin C actually works in the skin so you can educate your clients confidently and get the best results for their skin now.
Vitamin C is best for use during the day because of its actions it’s actually an antioxidant which is going to help shield against free radical damage so if you’re not familiar with free radicals free radicals cause cellular damage to the skin which means the skin’s not going to be functioning the way it should be it’s also going to speed up the aging process so vitamin C is also a tyrosinase inhibitor which means that it’s going to make sure our melanocytes are not over producing pigment when we’re going out into the Sun.
So using this topically on the skin during the day is really important because that’s when we’re going out and doing our daily activities even if your clients are wearing sunscreen if they’re not using a tire as an ACE inhibitor or a pigment blocker they are still prone to getting excess pigment in their skin when they go out into the Sun now I want you guys to comment down below if you are currently using vitamin C or you are recommending vitamin C to your clients I would love to know and I want to know what results you are getting so moving alongside to the dermis vitamin C interacts with our fiber blasts to make sure that the collagen is nice and it’s also alongside with vitamin A can reverse the science of Aging.
Now I also love how vitamin C works with our capillaries and oxygen in the skin so it actually helps to strengthen the capillary walls in a sensitive skin or a skin that is getting capillary damage so capillaries are really good at constructing but they’re not so great at restricting if the capillaries are quite weak so vitamin C if you use it topically it’s going to help strengthen the capillary walls so that way they are able to restrict so when it comes to recommending vitamin C for a client.
It’s really important to understand how strong that vitamin C is there are so many on the market today so what I do suggest is talk to your rep whatever brand your salon uses check how strong the vitamin C is because if it’s not that strong it’s not going to give the lients the results that I’m talking about here now it’s also really important for you guys to know that vitamin C is quite a strong vitamin and it’s really important that the client’s skin’s barrier is intact what can happen if it’s not it can be a bit too stimulating for the skin and cause a bit of a reaction so using vitamin C maybe incorporating it in once you know they’re on a good routine you can start off by a few times a week and then they can start incorporating it every day once their skin can handle it it will really depend client-to-client so you need to make sure you’re doing a proper consultation and skin analysis now you guys know how vitamin C works in the skin.
