Let’s talk facts

Find out all you need to know about hyaluronic acid and vitamin C from the skincare expert Michelle D’Allaird.

As an educator, I stick to the facts. I am a firm believer that if students clearly understand all the facts, then they are empowered to make good decisions.

When it comes to skincare, facts prevail. If you understand the physiology of the skin, then you can also understand how internal and external factors can influence the way it functions. When you understand product ingredients, you can easily decipher which ingredients will impact which skin conditions and why. It really is that simple. The hard part is the “understanding”.

But please don’t fret, that’s why you have me!

Here are the facts about two of my absolute favourite ingredients – vitamin C and hyaluronic acid.

The power of vitamin C

  1. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that prevents free radical damage. Free radicals are scavengers that leech off our skin every minute of every day. We are inundated with them through exposure to UV light, pollutants in the air, ingredients in cosmetics, smoke, particulate matter, debris from clothing and even stress. Vitamin C’s antioxidant protection is unprecedented. It protects every cell of our skin and body. It even plays an added role in protecting skin cells from UV damage!

  2. Vitamin C has the ability to stabilize mRNA in collagen. These are little messengers made in the nucleus of a cell, and they provide the protein structure for the cell to duplicate. Vitamin C is essential in the synthesis of collagen in the skin. The end result? New collagen for firmer, youthful and healthy skin.

Hyaluronic acid

  1. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a molecule that is naturally produced in the body. It is an essential acid that is found in connective tissue, cartilage, bone, hair, nails and skin. It lubricates our joints for adequate movement and provides our skin with a critical moisture barrier.

  2. HA is a humectant, an ingredient that binds and holds water, allowing it to be a powerhouse of hydration protection. When applied topically, it boosts the level of hydration protection, locks it into the layers of the skin, all while providing a youthful plumping effect on the surface.

The perfect match!

Why are these two ingredients so good together? Let’s think about the facts again.

Powerful antioxidant protection paired with hydration, instant plump and glow. It sure sounds like it could not get better. But it does!

ArtistryTM Vitamin C+HA doesn’t just deliver vitamin C and hyaluronic acid; it delivers them with great efficacy and great benefits. The benefits of vitamin C are certain; the uncertain part is in the formulation. Vitamin C is highly unstable when exposed to air, light or water. Making it a chemist’s nightmare when trying to incorporate it into a skincare formulation. When added to any liquid, it instantly begins to degrade at a rapid rate, leaving behind minimal benefits.

Artistry Vitamin C+HA to the rescue!

So how do we ensure we get maximum benefits out of vitamin C in skincare? We begin with vitamin C pressed into a pure powder form and placed into an airtight sealed cap. This maintains the potency until mixed into the HA base and ensures a maximum dose of pure vitamin C when you are ready for it.

But it doesn’t stop there! Along with HA, the base serum also has more vitamin C derived from acerola cherries sourced from Amway’s NutriliteTM farms.

Why is Artistry Vitamin C+HA best used within 30 days? Let’s turn to the facts again! As the Artistry brand always does, it puts its products to the test to support the promised results. It is within this 30-day time frame that one of skincare’s finest vitamin C+HA formulations (in my professional opinion) will be sure to deliver powerful antioxidant protection, maximum hydration and truly radiant, youthful, healthy skin before the vitamin C degrades.

No wonder it’s my favourite!
